PostPosted: Wed Nov 30, 2005 12:51 pm    Post subject: Simple wiring question Reply with quote Back to top

I have a patch panel in my basement that delivers 2 lines of telco to all jacks in the house.

Line 1 remains with the Clec
Line 2 is now with Vonage

The Vonage adapter only takes an RJ11 jack and seemingly is wired to communicate with phones.

Can I simply buy or make an RJ11 cable to expose a pair of wires and patch them into the panel where the old line 2 "feed" wires were punched - and get Vonage dialtone through the house on Line 2 when in the past I got 1 and 2 from the Telco?

Or are there other considerations.

I have seen it written here that mixing line 1 and 2 on a single Jack, with Line 1 being Telco and Line 2 being Vonage may be problematic.

ninterdo,

Your solution of patching in the Vonage adapter right into the panel will work. You will want to take an ordinary rj11 and cut one end off and plug in the other end to the Vonage adapter. Remember the rj11 has 4 wires. 2 for line 1 and 2 for line 2. The color schemes are available easily on the internet or even on some of these posts.

If you want all your equipment at the patch panel your solution is the best.

But if you want your cable modem and other equipment in a different room, you can also just connect your Vonage to a jack in the room. But you must reconfigure the jack so that it is connected to line 2. Make sure to disconnect line 2 from the telco and that should work as well.

Hope this helps.

Here is the color coding options for telecom wiring.

Also, for the wiring, ensure that you are not plugging the adapter into a line with live voltage. Ensure that you do not ave any voltage in the second line by plugging a device into the second line and checking for a dialtone and/or DTMF tones. If you do hear them, you will need to break open the box and remove the incoming lines from the Telco for the second line. they will most likely be the orange/white pair. Test the line again to ensure that you dont have any voltage on the second line and then pop your adapter in.

PostPosted: Sat Dec 03, 2005 9:23 am    Post subject: Connecting Linksys and DLink DWL 922 Reply with quote Back to top

Hi!

I have read some posts on connecting Linksys and Dlink but my first question is

1) how to connect Linksys and Dlink? Do I need a splitter? like the one we have for phone jack?
2) do I need to go through all enabling/diabling DCHP and make IP address active/inactive? wouldn't that be as simple as your Vonage will work with Linksys as it is and configure your PC to start working with DLink using a CD provided by Dlink?

Thanks

tworouters, I appreciate your post. However, I would recommend you start a new thread since this is within a completely different subject. To briefly answer your questions let me answer them in sequence.

You connect the Linksys and Dlink routers using an ethernet computer cable just like you would if you were connecting your computer to the router. There is no splitter. I assume you are thinking of a splitter because all your ports are being used. Is that correct? If so, you will need to remove one of your computers and connect it instead to the other router. In my case, I have the Linksys connected to the modem and then my DLink connected to the Linksys from port 1 of the Linksys to port 1 not the WAN or Internet Port of the DLink. Connecting it to Port 1 converts the DLink from a router to a switch along with disabling DHCP.

For me, I disabled DHCP on my DLink and also changed its IP address to 192.168.15.150 so that it is in the same subnet as the Linksys phone adapter. I would not recommend using the CD that came with your DLink. Out of curiosity, are you trying to put the DLink router first followed by Linksys? What kind of DLink router is this? I would not recommend that.

Hope this helps.
