I tried one like that before and had a rough time getting it to stay in the jack on the back of the router.

OK. I'm totally confused now.
The adaptor I got yesterday is Belkin 2 line adaptor, 1Rj11 to 2 RJ11 jacks. It says to connect a 2 line phone to 2 seperate jacks. Each line out has 2 wire construction inside. So the two output jacks should be identical, at least they both have 2 wire construction. If I can use one of them, why not the other.

Do you think this product is OK for my use?http://www.staples.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaplesProductDisplay?storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&langId=-1&productId=29819&cmArea=SEARCH


The item you posted in the link above is precisely what you are looking for.

The Belkin one you describe is for taking the four wires in a standard wall jack and wiring one plug for Line 1 (the inner wires on the jack) and one plug for Line 2 (the outer wires on the jack).

For your purposes, you want something that sends the inner wires on the jack out to two plugs. The item at Staples you posted above seems to do that.

The type you are looking for should be far more common than the Belkin one you ended up with. They are common as dirt, and about as cheap. Wink

Have you seen the Belkin product's link I posted above? So you are sure that this Belkin is not right, and the staple cheap one is what I actually need? Dam, I've spent 10 bux on wrong stuff.

The one you purchased from OfficeMax (Belkin F8V1028) does look like the correct product. I have no idea why that one would not work for you, actually, unless it is defective or you have a phone cable problem.

So you've tried both phones individually in your Vonage adapter and they both work, using their own individual cables? But when you put the Belkin F8V1028 adapter into the Vonage adapter and plug both phones into the Belkin, you cannot get one of the phones to work?

Sounds to me like the Belkin adapter is defective, or the product description is slightly misleading and you have a Line 1/ Line 2 splitter instead of a "straight through", which is what you want. Go to Wal-Mart, Staples, Radio Shack, Home Depot, or anywhere they carry phone cables. Splitters like this are generally about $2-3 retail, and about as common as dirt.

The fact that one of the phones is working tells me you have it plugged into the Vonage adapter and are getting good connection.

EDIT: Just to be clear on the issue. Here is what you want:



This is the most common type of splitter.

Yes, I plugged the adapter in, then tried to plug in two phones, but I could hear dial tone only from "line 1" jack. Then I switched the position of these two phones to see if it was the problem of the phone cord but again still only one of the jacks was working. Two phones have no problem at all.

OK, I can see 4 wires(1-4) in the input side (the one connected with Vonage device), but only wire 2 and 3 in each of the output side.

That leads me to believe that you probably have a line 1/line 2 splitter, which would be wired like this:



The reason I say that is, if they put four wires on the input on a "straight thru" splitter, they'd probably put four wires on the output too.

REALLY cheap straight through splitters might not have wires 1 and 4 wired, since they are not used if you don't have a second line. The telephone company sends Line 1 in through wires 2 and 3 (the middle wires, so many cheap phone cords and splitters only have those two wires. However, they'd have wires 1 and 4 missing from ALL THREE jacks, like this:



If you have all four contacts on one side, and only two contacts on the other, I strongly suspect they sent you a "2 line -> 1 line + 1 line" splitter, which is useless for you. Get thee to thy local store and buy a cheap, simple, straight-thru.

An adapter with labels of "Line1 / Line 2" or "L1 / L2" generally indicate that it's the wrong adapter for this application. That's not a splitter, but a two-line adapter. (In effect, it puts wires 2 and 3 straight through on the L1 jack, and reroutes wires 1 and 4 into 2 and 3 on the L2 jack.) This adapter lets you use two single-line phones on a 2-line phone jack.

The proper adapter probably won't have any labels on it.
