You can keep your existing telephone number as long as its still in service. (double check with Vonage on this Embarq is a little different then some services I have dealt with.) You must have broadband internet service. Vonage will supply the additional modem at no charge capable of two lines. You just disconnect the wires from the existing telephone service outside the house and tie into you existing wiring via telephone modular cord from the new phone modem to your telephone distribution wiring in your home. Keeping your existing telephone number requires a bit of paperwork and time but its all worth the effort down the road. In case of power failure you can have Vonage call your cell phone till the power comes back on. Make sure you set up 911 when you get the service so that your 911 calls are routed to the local center. It's very comforting nowadays to know your bill is always the same no matter where you called or how long you talked. This feature alone has to be a plus for all the mothers and fathers and grandmas and grandpas in TV.

Someone from Vonage told me that you can have upto 4 cordless phones with a base unit and that as long as you use a Vonage wireless adapter/router hooked up to a wall jack and the base unit of the phone sytem hooked up to the adapter. This is with a comcast wireless modem.

That you don't need an Ethernet cable to be attached to the adapter. Does this make sense?
