Hi, I'm no tech and a newbie to the forum thing but would appreciate a bit of help, so here goes....I have been using a SRP 527W for internet and VioP through WXC for some time  and I'm happy as with both WXC and the 527W...
However, I have moved and have a different setup now, the phone line coming to the property goes directly to an '8 port Telecom Module'.
The 527W DSL port has an RJ 11 plugged into it and a couple of cores punched down on #8 panel out of the module, so the internet works totally fine...

My question is can I use an RJ 11 plug out of the back of the SRP Ph #1 socket outlet and punch down cores on to the module then patch from that to the 24 way patch board then out to the RJ 45 network outlets around the house (the phone connection is working, but at the moment I'm running the phone base station in the cabinet which is plugged directly into the #1 phone outlet of the SRP...must be a tidier way to hook this up ?)

Cheers Mike

You almost certainly can, but if you could post some photos it would make it easier to understand exactly what you currently have.

As long as you don't exceed the REN value by plugging in too many phones you're fine.

From memory the REN of the SRP range is around 3, and each phone you have should have the REN value on the Telepermit sticker.

The device that you've labelled "unsure what this is" is your xDSL master filter.

Yep the RN=0.5

Im using a couple of Uniden walk around phones...thanks for the ID on the not sure lable!

so any thoughts regarding getting the cable to the module....could I cut and strip back the cable from the SRP phn outlet 1 and punching it down on to the module patch panel... if so, how would I patch from the module to the 24 way panel...could I use the patch cable shown above? would appreciate a walk through!

do you have a RJ11 Version of this patch cord ? (your photo is of a AT&T110 single pr to RJ45 Single pr patch cord for voice patching)

I hope this helps explain what is what and what to patch where? If not just ask.

If you where to use the standard incoming pots line then you would patch from terminal pr 1 to your 24 port patch panel.

Any spare ports on the patch panel? If so, I'd just jumper 3 or 4 patch panel ports together on the blue pair and plug the VoIP port into one if those, then patch from there to where ever you want phones.
