in reply to At home I most often use

I have used VoIP for almost a year now. A few weeks ago, I decided that I should probably hook it up to the house wiring so we could plug in a phone anywhere. My wife really isn't in a position to go running after a ringing phone at the moment. It worked great except you couldn't hang up.

I jumped on the net to figure out what I was doing wrong. Apparently, it is paramount to disconnect the telco from your home before hooking up your VoIP to the house wiring (which I didn't) as it could "blow up". Hrmmm - I disconnect the telco and no change. Hrmmm - these spliced wires don't look quite right. What happens if I .... bingo. One of the previous owners of the house had done a little of their own wiring and had created a circular loopback. Lesson learned - wife happy.

Cheers - L~R

    We got rid of the telco by the end of February, so now it's VoIP only. It's very cheap, good voice quality (better than the telco most of the time), but sometimes just a little unreliable.

    Cheers, Sören
