Does anyone know of an ATA that explicitly supports multiple devices on existing home wiring?
I have 5 phones, 1 answering machine, 1 computer modem and one caller ID box on my telco quad "backbone." I'm looking for an ATA that I can just connect to a jack on the backbone after disconnecting from the POTS.
None of the vendor lit I've seen supports this. They all want you to connect your phone(s) directly to the adapter with RJ-11 patch cables! Some of the VoIP carriers seem to wink at existing wiring setups as long as you don't have more than 3 - 5 phones connected. But they make it clear there are no guarantees, so I guess the risk is on the customer.
