How do I open the other panel? It's not a regular screw.

Can I just unhook the blue/white wire?

Thanks


Don't even think of opening up the other side. It belongs to the phone company, not to you. Only the side with the regular screw belongs to you.

I expect that unplugging the blue/white wires will do the trick.

Hi Paul-

I agree that the intereference is definetly somewhere in the analog portion of the network. The jack I've plugged into is newer and is configured for 2 lines. I switched the Vonage line from the top jack to the bottom jack, tested for a phone signal on a phone upstairs and there was nothing! So, it appears I have the correct jack plugged in. Tomorrow I'll try one of two things...
1. Move all equipment closer to the phone jack (this means I'll be using a longer co-ax cable).
2. Move just the Vonage router closer to the phone jack (this means I'll be using a longer ethernet cable).

As always, I'm interested to know if you have any suggestions or opinions regarding the two proposals. If not, it will largely be settled by which costs less!

What I'm wondering is, why would you get interference when Vonage was connected, but not with the normal telco? Seems a bit odd, but maybe it has something to do with where the service is entering the system?

One thing you can try is to go back to your plan 1:
Run a line from the Vonage device to your phone box, and attach it to the red/green screw terminals. That way, Vonage will be feeding in from the same location that your telco was.

Just so I can close this issue out, I bridged the long distance gap between the cable outlet and the phone jack using the coax cable instead of the analog phone cable. This eliminated the AM radio station I was getting.

Thanks to all for the help!

Grounding... I'm willing to bet that the Vonage phone adapters float the ground rather than tying it to electrical ground (well, neutral with the power wall-wart). In theory the phone line is a balanced connection, but that doesn't mean the circuitry within the phone adapter is running in a balanced topology.

All the above were correct. There is a 3rd wire that goes to the Telephone Companies box, a ground.

If curiosity gets the better of you, the left side of the box may be opened by a hex or allen key, often found in the build it yourself furniture or multi ended screwdriver.

In a 4 wire cable Line 1 is red/green, line 2 is Yellow/black
In an 8 wire cat 3 or 5 cable Blue/white is usually line 1 Orange/white line 2 Green/white is line 3 Brown/white is line 4

Aaargh!

It's back! It seems I spoke too soon in posting a resolution. I'm back to sqaure one and am still getting the AM signal over the phone lines.

Paul...you mentioned something about the red/green wires being a possible cause...is there something I can do to test this?

All others...any suggestions? When I plug the phone directly into the Vonage router, there's no interference, so it leads me to believe the issue is definetly in the house's telephone wiring.

Call up the radio station and see if they can offer any advice... I know it's something I used to do when working in radio.
