    If you are using one ATA...then, first of all make sure that your phone line has been disconnected where it first comes into the house/apartment. You don't want there to be voltage at the jacks from the pair coming from the telephone company central office. All of the phone jacks should be in parallel if you had a single PSTN line going to all phones in the past. You should just have to plug a phone cord between the phone jack on the ATA and one of the phone jacks in the wall, that should feed all phones in the house. Just be aware that not all countries use a two wire (Tip & Ring) system so things could be a bit different in your case. Also be aware that there is a limit as to how many ringers an ATA will operate, check the manual.
