Setup questions before signing up with Vonage

Hi. I'm interested in signing up for Vonage's Unlimited to Globe Philippines plan. I just have several questions before i proceed with the sign up process. My question concerns the location of the main phone and the router. You see my main phone is located downstairs near the kitchen. I actually bought an extension phone which I haven't used yet. It's a wireless phone. Just to let you know bought phones are wireless. The router and the cable modem is located upstairs. I have no phone jack outlet in that room.

1. Do I need to buy a modem jack set so I could connect my other wireless phone to the vonage box?

2. Can I just directly plug in my wireless phone to the vonage box without using any device?

If I can just plug in my wireless phone to the vonage box set. Then I'll definitely get this plan.

Thanks.

Yes, you can just plug a wireless phone controller (or a single wired phone) directly into the Vonage adapter.

There is no need to connect the Vonage adapter's FXS port(s) to your in-house telco wiring unless you are going to be using wired phones in another room, or you have multiple wireless phones that each have their own controller and require a wired connection to the controller. If your wireless phones are DECT style phones, then a single DECT controller can handle multiple wireless phones with no wiring required.

Thanks. I just bought a regular wireless phone. I hope that would do.

It will work fine for that one phone, but if you plan to use multiple cordless phones, you may need to either extend the in-house wiring to the room where the Vonage adapter is located (and make sure that the in-house telco wiring is disconnected at the NID), or put every cordless phone's base station in that room, or use a DECT cordless system.

To my knowledge, the DECT system is the only cordless phone system that uses a central base station that can feed multiple cordless phones, but perhaps there are others.

FWIW, I use a GE DECT Cell Fusion™ system that allows me to integrate a Vonage line, and two cell phone connections for access by the same DECT handsets.
