Topic # 111999 22-Nov-2012 13:08 Send private message

So I prefer analog phones in my home I have 5 and they work fine if I plug each one directly into my genius modem.  I was wondering how/if possible to patch into my existing phone jacks and activate them all via an analog line run from my genius modem analog phone port.  I have identified the old copper line and the main connection point to all jacks in my house (in the attic):



It seems the orange/orange white connect to the entire house.  Is there a method by connecting them to the genius analog port to then power all the existing jacks?  I guess worst case I have to put a 5 way phone cord splitter on the genius modem and rerun multiple wires?

Thanks for any info.

Its certainly possible.  I can't tell much from that picture either but basically this is how it's done:

incoming pair --> Genius ADSL jack

pair to other outlets --> Genius Phone (green) jack

YMMV ringing 5 handsets, not sure on the max REN but I'd say more than 2 (each phone should have REN on the bottom; add them up) and you might be pushing things.  See how you go.
