Shoes2468:Handle9:coffeebaron: You can rewire the phone output from the VoIP box into the internal wiring (if you know what you are doing). I do this for many of my VoIP / Naked broadband installs.
Yep, exactly what I did at home with naked DSL - disconnected the internal wiring from the POTS line and rewired it to a Linksys ATA. Works like a charm although obviously you are limited by the number of extensions your ATA can power.
And how many extensions would you expect your ATA to power? or is it a trial and error thing? for example, could it power two traditional corded phones and a cordless powered phone?
You will need to calculate this yourself because it depends entirely on the ATA and the phones. As part of the Telepermit spec every device has to show it's REN which is also available if you look up the Telepermit on the Telepermit website. An ATA is typically around 3, and most modern phones are now well under 1. The sum of all phones can't exceed the REN of the ATA.
