How-To run VoIP over existing phone wiring
September 27, 2005
I’ve been a Vonage customer for going on two years now, and I have to say that Voice Over IP (VOIP) is an exceedingly cool and (for the most part) simple-to-use technology.
You get a box from the VOIP provider, plug it into your broadband router, and plug your phone into the box. Instant dialtone — what could be easier?
But what if you don’t want your phone right next to the router?
A lot of VOIP users have gone to multi-handset cordless phone systems, and that works, but it’s still not as convenient as using the existing phone wiring in your house that probably already has a jack everywhere you want a phone.
Well, the good folks over to MediaBlab have a solution for you — they’ve written up step-by-step instructions on how-to run your VOIP line over your existing phone wiring.
