1. You can purchase a multiple
jack extension connector, and then connect it to
phone port 1 of the ATA. This will allow you to
have multiple phones on a single Nettalk Voiceline
2. Some of our customers use cordless phone
systems that come with a base unit and extra
handsets. The base station of the cordless
telephone plugs directly into the ATA. Multiple
handsets can be placed anywhere in the
3. You can purchase wireless phone jacks. The
base unit connects to the ATA and the wireless
jacks plug into your household electrical outlets.
A telephone connects to the wireless jack. Please
note that only the phone attached to the base unit
will display caller ID information. Note: During
testing in our lab, we noticed sporadic dropped
calls on the extension phones and an inability to
talk on more than one phone at a
4. Some of our customers have
plugged the ATA directly into the existing
telephone wiring in their homes. The manufacturer
of the adapter does not recommend hooking anything
to the adapter other than a telephone, but you can
seek advice from an electrician or someone who is
familiar with internal telephone wiring on how to
best connect it to your current wiring to take
advantage of multiple extensions. We would advice
that you check the wiring on the jacks to make
sure you don't have live PSTN voltage on the jacks
before connecting them to the ATA (this can be
easily done by using a line tester). Be advised
that any damage resulting from practices contrary
to manufacturers' recommendations for the ATA will
not be covered by warranty.

get multiple phone lines?
To get multiple
lines, you must open multiple accounts. We offer

23) Is Nettalk Voiceline
like a cell phone?
No, it's not.
Nettalk Voiceline provides stable, premium
telephone service over a high speed Internet
connection. However, Nettalk Voiceline does
provide one of the advantages of a cell phone:
your phone number will stay connected to your
basic Nettalk Voiceline equipment (namely, your
ATA 186 or Motorolla phone adapter). So if you
bring this equipment along with you when you
travel, and connect it to any high-speed Internet
connection at your new location, you'll be
reachable at your phone number wherever you

You need a DSL/cable Web-safe
router in your network. The router will allow you
to use your Nettalk Voiceline service at the same
time that you surf the Web. If you are a DSL
subscriber, you will need a router to login to
your DSL service because the ATA device will not
perform the log in.
