PostPosted: Mon Jul 04, 2005 8:16 pm    Post subject: PAP2 w/ IBM Home Director Telecom Module? Reply with quote Back to top

Anybody have any success getting the PAP2 adapter to work with either a IBM Home Director or Pass & Seymour Telecom module? I have the IBM HD can in my house they don't seem to play well. A cat5 run from the demarcation box carrying lines from the telco works fine. If I unplug it and plug in the PAP2, no lights, no joy. The adapter works fine of course if you just plug it up to a handset.

IBM Home Director is kaput but I'm pretty sure the Pass and Seymour stuff is related. The form factors are the same and most of the modules look identical. Anyway, I'd like to distribute my Vonage lines throughout the house using my existing infrastructure.

I'd be interested in figuring this out too. I just moved into a new house with a Home Director panel in the basement. The telephone company line is wired into the block in the panel, but the teleco line hangs loose outside the panel (i.e. it does not go outside the house). I thus tried plugging the phone line from my Vonage router directly into one of the jacks in the Home Director panel, hoping I'd have live phone jacks around the house. No luck though. I then tried plugging the Vonage router's phone line into a phone jack upstairs, with still no luck Has anybody with a similar setup had any luck?

For those it might help, I figured out my problem. It was carelessness on my part more than anything. As noted above, I thought that that the teleco line was hanging loose. Upon closer inspection, though, I noticed that it wasn't the teleco line hanging loose, but the spare line to the actic (they were hanging next to each other, and intertwined a bit). I went into the panel, and unhooked the teleco line, and now it works perfectly - I plug a phone line from my Vonage into a jack in my house, and the other jacks are powered (well, at least the one I've tested so far is).

Hey Venture,

Do you have the IBM HD Telecom module or just a punch-block? The telecom module is powered by a 15VDC transformer wired into the can. It has four RJ-45 jacks at the top labeled: 'Data In', 'Data Out', 'Lines 1-4', and 'RJ-31X'. Then four rows of RJ-45 jacks in two groups running down. The first group of two rows are labeled 'Line 1' and 'Line 2' and the second group are labeled 'Lines 3&4' The way my old POTS setup works is that the pairs from the demarcation box run into the HD can on a dedicated CAT5 line. I simply wire up the telco lines to the appropriate pair on the Cat5 cable and then plug that cable into the jack at the top of the telecom module labeled 'Lines 1-4'. Then I plug in the Cat5 runs that fan out into the rest of the house into the appropriate jacks running down. QED.

One would assume that all I need to do to make the PAP2 work is unplug the Cat5 line coming from the demarcation box and plug in 'line 1' from the adapter. Doesn't seem to work though. I don't think it's a cabling issue. A standard phone line with one pair on pins 2 & 3 of a RJ-11 plugged into an RJ-45 jack becomes pin 3 & 4. That's line 1. Should work seems to me.

Any thoughts appreciated,

Thunderheart

Well, now that I look at it, I don't even think I have the Home Director. Embarassed That was on the pre-sale spec sheet from the builder, but now that I've gone down to check it out to reply to your post, I see that it is a Honeywell "QuickNetwork." Although I'm not sure what to look for, I think I just have the punch block in it. At the bottom of this post are links to two photos, one of the outside, and one with the cover off. In the second photo, you can see my crude tape off job on the phone line wires, in the bottom left of the panel. That wire was initially connected to a point on the backside of the module in the top right, until I pulled it off.

You can also see that for any jack I want connected to my network, I have the cable running out the left side of the panel box, to my (non-Vonage) router (which is just off screen). Right now, my Vonage router is plugged into (i.e. behind) my LAN router, although I may change that. I have one phone line running from the Vonage router into an empty slot on the module in the top right of the panel. That is what gave me my phone connection.

Sorry for the confusion. For what it is worth, here are the photos I mentioned:
