VoIP Over Phone Wiring

By tying into the phone lines in your home, VoIP passes the ultimate spouse acceptance factor, because it works everywhere the old landline worked, with the added bonus of no long distance charges.

This nice practical little article at Jake Ludington's MediaBlab shares the exact in's and out's of making that happen.....in easy to understand (and do) language.

Of course...."If you still keep a landline, but want to patch in your VoIP line to the Line 2 pair (the outside two wires of your home phone box– black/yellow), you can do that too. You can either wire the red/green from the ATA to black/yellow in your [junction box], or you can plug it into any wall jack – the easiest way to do this is to buy one of those L1/L2 adaptors from Radio Shack that breaks out one phone jack into three plugs – one will be L1/L2 (normal), one will be L1 only, and one will be L2 only. Just plug the ATA into the L2 port and you won’t have to do any wiring at all."

BTW, Jake uses Vonnage as an example. Me....I still prefer Packet8. ;)
