  • Connect the Ethernet port on the VoIP phone adapter to a spare Ethernet port on your router (1,2,3,or 4) using the Ethernet cable included in the kit.(this is the one that looks like a wide thicker phone cable )
  • Connect the base station for your phone system to the phone port on the VoIP phone adapter using a standard telephone cable
  • Turn on your modem wait about 2 min for full boot up, and then same with router and wait for them to start up (typically, when all lights have turned green.)
  • Plug the power adapter into the power jack on the VoIP adapter and then into an electrical outlet. Wait for a few minutes and then pick up the telephone handset and listen for a dial tone. This indicates that the VoIP adapter is working.
