I'm trying to disconnect my Bell line so I can use the internal wiring in my house for VOIP. The problem I'm running into is that my wiring is very confusing and nobody that I've asked so far has been able to make any sense of it!

Basically I have 3 black wires coming into the house. One is coming in to the back of the big grey box on the left, and I have no access to that one. One comes in and splits into the 8 colored wires that are connected on the front of that grey box. And one comes in, splits into two copper wires and connects to that right most black box (on the bottom 2 screws).
I used to have Fibe internet so the tech had come and installed that ADSL white box on the top.
The phone jack in the left box is not connected to anything, if I unplug it I still have a dial tone on my phone. The red and green wires are just dangling freely.
I tried disconnecting the black wire that splits onto the right black box, and while that did cut the dial tone off, I'm not sure that was the correct wire because my VOIP wasn't working on internal wires, so I'm not sure if the problem is with me not taking down the right wires, or me not setting up the VOIP correctly. (The VOIP works fine when I plug the phone directly into the device).
Oh and I'm on cable internet now so the DSL isn't in use, and I do have a home alarm system but I've advised them that I'm disconnecting the phone and have moved to a different system for that.
