Ok, we just signed up for Vonage and I have everything. The problem is there are no phone lines anywhere near my cable connections. I need to be able to plug the vonage router into my phone lines so it makes them all live. (Alarm system). Any ideas other than having a phone line installed near a cable drop? I thought about using my Airport Express to move the Vonage box near a phone line but it disables the ethernet port when connected to a wireless network! Aaaarrgh!

There are a few "wireless" phone line extension products that could work well... I know there is at least one that works over powerlines... have you looked into that type of option at all?

Thanks Paul. I have a RCA phone line "extender" that works over outlets but it has static.

This unit might be of some use, assuming you already have a WiFi network. Not sure if it'd work with something that's not a computer though.
