Cordless phone hookup

9 posts in this topic

Here's the situation.

I've got a shop about 100' from my house.

I've got a satellite receiver in it, where I have to pay $5 per month because I don't have it hooked to a landline phone.

Is there a way to get this receiver hooked wirelessly to my house line, whether phone line or ethernet, so I can save the $5 per month?

Or do I have to bury a phone line from the house out there?

I have never heard of wireless phone jack but that is not to say that someone out there might not sell something like that. If you do bury a cable make sure to get weatherproof cable. It will be black and gel filled and you should be able to get it in one or two pair. I would get it in two pair just in case you need a spare wire some day.It would not hurt to put lightning protection on it but it is not required.

They exist. Most work by transmitting the signal down the electric line. Check out PHILIPS Wireless Phone Jack And Extension Unit in your favorite search engine

They claim it will work for satellite receivers and it looks like Lowes and Circuit City carry them and for the price they are a lot cheaper and a lot less labor.

Thats what I have for my direct tv it works great. Just remember you have to follow the directions to a t and you shouldn't have any problems. Bought mine on evil bay it was cheaper.

Pretty sure a good cordless would work that far, all you'd need is a second docking station just for charging purposes. I know I've been able to venture pretty far from my house without dropping a call. Have you ever tried a cordless out there?

I don't need the phone itself, but a way to run a phone LINE, literal, to a satellite receiver.

I think you can run wireless internet to it cant you? If you have wireless internet already, you should be able to just buy a wireless adaptor and plug it in to the DVR box. Wireless internet should go atleast 100 ft!

    • Google;   Sayyid Qutb  and you can then read and decide on your own where and how todays Islamic Fundamentalists originated.

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
