can't I just plug the Vonage adapter into my house phone wire and then all the phone jacks (including my alarm system) will be powered by Vonage?

Yes, you can wire Vonage to your alarm system and RJ-11 wall jacks. Assuming you have CAT-5 UTP wiring in your home, your current RJ-11 phone jack uses just one pair. Remove the wall plate from the phone jack nearest your modem. Run a good quality phone line to the jack. Hack off the end. Now it gets a little tricky. You have to 'find' the pair you are going to use from the wall at the network interface outside. All the cat5 pairs are bundled up inside your area of the network interface. I used a radio shack RJ-11 adapter that i just slide the respective pair into the center pins of the phone jack inside by the wall jack. I then run an extremely long phone line from the room inside to the outside network interface. Open up the bundle of wires inside your network interface. Using any cheap multi meter I ohm out the pair by doing a one to one comparison of the particular color wires i used. Eventually you will find both wire. Tag them. IMPORTANT: disconnect your 50 volt phone company installed line. Watch out you might get bit on this one. Carefully remove this line. This will save your modem should the phone company inadvertently turn on the voltage again. Wire the pair from the modem to network interface posts where all the other jacks in the house are wired from. That's pretty much it. Need to splice your modem's phone line to the twisted pair in the wall jack. I drill a hole in the wall plate, splice wires and screw the whole thing back. Vonage service now exists in every analog jack. .

viagatorre,
I did what u said below and now all the jacks in my house work and my alarm box calls the alarm company. The only think i have found now is that my caller id does not work... can you explain this one.. before i hooked my Vonage into my rj31x jack i just had it plugged into a wall jack and all my wall jacks worked and the caller id worked. any idea why it does not now?

thanks,

steve

Do you have the RTP300? Caller ID with this adapter has been having problems for weeks. It's being discussed extensively in the Voip forum. The problem are sporadic and often vary with use/non-use of house wiring and also with number of things plugged in when house wiring is being used. A new firmware load, due out soon, is supposed to fix it.

Steve48,
Funny at first i had no idea what the rtp300 was.... then i had a sip of my bourbon and figured it was my modem and yes i do. It is also funny that menion that it is sparadic because earlier i was looking at my phone and hit the caller id... one of the phones picked up 3 calls today and the other did not pick up any calls. It is strange though that if i hook a phone straight up to the modem i do not have the problem. Well i hope the new firm ware will fix it. I do not know if the info i have given here will help any. oh and how will i know when the firm ware will come out? I imagine it will not download itself?

thanks,
Steve247

It does download itself; that is, Vonage "pushes" it. If you look at the router's administration page, http://192.168.15.1 , you'll see the firmware version in the top right corner. The current version is 55; the coming version is said to be 58. In fact, there's a thread titled just "58" in the Voip forum where they've been talking about it. Take a look at http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic8941.html if you want to hear more about the issue. The length of the thread itself gives you some idea of the stir that caller ID has been causing.
