Vonage modmouse, thank you for taking the picture. I need to clarify a few things


thank you for taking the picture. I need to clarify a few things with you.

Correct me if I am wrong but here is what I can see.

1. I see two Quad four wires coming up the line 2 side from the bottom.

2. I see a solid blue/blue-white striped pair on the line 2 side but I cannot see where it goes. It looks like it comes to the middle of the NIU and then it's out of view. Can you tell where it goes? Is it the larger diameter wire coming up the line 1 side? It looks that way upon close inspection.

3. I see a bunch of wires coming up the middle between lines 1 & 2. I see one white wire and two black wires but there could be more.

4. I see one large diameter white wire coming up the side of line 1. I am pretty sure that this line is your cat5 which has 4 pairs of wires and has the solid blue/blue-white striped pair.

If your initial assumption is that your phone jacks are wired in sequence, your NIU would not have been connected this way. You would have only 1 pair coming into your house and the signal distributing to all the other jacks. From what I can see, it looks like there are several lines coming out of your NIU into the home which means you have multiple circuits coming into your house and not one simple circuit.

On the line 2 side, here are the wires that I can see connected to the terminals though I am sure there are more that are out of view from the picture.

Starting from top screw to bottom screw:

Top - 2 green and 1 blue-white stripe
Mid Top - 2 green and 2 red
Mid Bottom - 1 solid blue, maybe 2 red
Bottom - maybe 4 red?

One the line 1 side:

Top - 2 yellow
Mid Top - 2 yellow
Mid Bottom - 2 black
Bottom - 2 black

I also see 2 green and a red wire on line 1 on the left side of the screws but I cannot see where they go from there.

These are what I can see but I cannot see behind these wires and I cannot see behind some of the obstacles. I see at least 3 quad wires coming out of the NIU and a cat5e 4 pair wire. Can you confirm this?

In addition, can you confirm where these wires enter the home? Do they all go to the same place?

I suspect that your home was rewired a number of times but it's only a guess. They certainly didn't do a good job of keeping it simple.

Please confirm with me exactly how its been connected.

What I can see is that the top two terminal screws are connected together so that's why you see green wires connected to the top 2 screws and red wires connected to the bottom 2 screws, which are connected together. Likewise, the same setup on the line 1 side.

You are correct in suspecting that line 2 was used as the primary line. It appears that way. Perhaps line 1 was not working properly.

Anyway, confirm my comments and we'll go from there.
