Vonage sukesu, I can understand your frustration in this matter. I have read


I can understand your frustration in this matter. I have read your posts and if I understand you correctly, you have said the following:

1. You had 2 lines coming into your house. One was a regular phone line. The other is for your office.
2. You noticed that the jack in your office is using the yellow and black wires. (this is standard for the 2nd line)
3. The jacks with the phones currently plugged in (the 2 phones you mentioned) are connected by both pairs of wires.
4. You disconnected line 1 from the NIU. (how did you do this by the way?)

The above summary is what I can gather from your posts.

What you haven't mentioned is the jack to which you are connecting your Vonage router to. What are its wiring schemes? is it using the red - green pair or is it connected to the yellow-black pair?

I ask the above question because you said in your latest post the following:

(Bold is mine)

I assume that the above quote is a typo because the other phone jacks should have red and green as its wires, not green and black. Black cannot be used for a different line since it's already used for line 2.

If I were you, I'd do the following.

I would try to figure out how your phone system is connected? Is there a patch panel somewhere? If you have a patch panel, then I would suggest that you disconnect all the other phone jacks (except your office jack) from the yellow and black wires. There is no reason to have that there since it is a live wire pair (Be sure to disconnect your second line first from the NIU before playing with the wires).

Next, I would make sure that all the phone jacks I want to use with the Vonage line has the red - green pair only on the jacks. This also includes the jack to which you are connecting your Vonage router.

If your phone jacks have 2 sets of bundled wires (i.e. 2 pairs of red-green; 2 pairs of yellow black) then your jacks are connected in sequence. Then you cannot just disconnect the unused pair because it will most likely disconnect your 2nd line to your office. Here, you just need make sure that your jacks have the red-green pair as the first pair.

I hope this helps. Mundy5
