[Homephone] VOIP thoughout the house using existing line
I've been doing research on this and it appears you have to go outside to the bell box an unplug the cable then use line 2 for modem to send signal thoughout the house. I found this old thread about locks on Bell boxes with a picture of the box.
I have cable. I don't want to cut anything. I was wondering if pulling out the gray cable in the picture below would be enough or if I have to do remove another cable. Most specifically do I need to remove something in the bell part of the box?
u dont have to do nothing to the box outside, all u need to do is look for a modular jack near ur hydro panel, if not, simply add one, its only 2 wires screwed onto 2 terminals you disconnect bell from the inside wiring and put your voip into the inside wiring and that sit.
Is there anyway to do it though the Telephone box? My VOIP modem is going to be in my room (2nd floor) and the Hydro panel is in the basement. There were multiple people saying you could do the same thing from the panel outside and that it's actually a lot easier.
I haven't opened anything yet but I have looked at the box and it's fairly simple to open (nut screw + reg screw). That pic was from the other thread. So I only need to unplug the gray cable and nothing else? There is nothing I need to touch in the Bell part of the box seen in this pic in the middle?
