Distributing Ooma Through Existing Phone Lines

Post by tim1 » Thu Dec 27, 2012 7:27 am

I've ported my number, waited for the phone company to turn off the dial tone, and I think the next step is to disconnect the wiring. I've attached a photo of the box (I once had Qwest DSL, but am getting internet via comcast cable)

What's my next step?

When you had DSL, did you have a dedicated line to the DSL modem? (it seems like there is a home run wire going into the house along with the 2 gray wire bunches)

Not sure if that home run wire goes to a jack or not (where you used to plug in your DSL modem?).

If you want all the walljacks connected together, take the blue-white, white-blue wires out of the tabs (purple, orange tabs on the left), clip the exposed metal leads if any, and connect the 3 blue-white wires together and 3 white-blue wires together using 2 3-wire butt connectors.
