Correct wiring for multiple extensions on VOIP setup?

I have a 6 bedroom home in which a large number of rooms each have an RJ11 faceplate which are all wired back to a central RJ11 'patch panel' in a cupboard.

I have my Virgin SuperHub 3 (in modem only mode) in the same cupboard. It has the Virgin VOIP stuff enabled for telephony and I can plug a single phone into the back of the Virgin Super Hub to get a telephone connection.

My question is:

What is the best way to connect the SuperHub to my RJ11 patch panel such that all of my rooms have a wired telephone extension? The SuperHub only has 2 telephony ports. Is it possible to buy an RJ11 1-to-8 splitter or something like that?

Re: Correct wiring for multiple extensions on VOIP setup?

Hi BertWilliams65,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us in our community and a very warm welcome to you.

 

When it come to additional handsets we dont recommend more than 4 on a traditional line and 2 on a Docsis, any handset's you get have to be Docsis ready.

 

There are RJ11 splitters available however this isn't something we recommend.

 

Regards

 

Paul.

What is Docsis ready. It was my understanding that any standard phone can be connected to the rj11 on the hub.

Only the TEL 1 port is active.

You can certainly try a splitter but VM won't help you if it works poorly.
