How to connect a telephone to a VOIP / Modem phone system.

A telephone line via an internet modem refers to using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology to transmit phone calls over the internet.

Instead of a traditional landline, which uses copper wires, VOIP allows you to make phone calls using your internet connection.

When connecting a telephone to an VOIP / internet modem, here are some general steps:

  • Connect to Phone Port on Modem: Connect your telephone to this port using a standard telephone cable. Make sure you are using the telephone port specified by your provider (usually port 1).
  • Power on the Modem: Ensure that your internet modem is powered on and functioning properly.
  • Check for VoIP Service: Confirm with your internet service provider that your plan includes VOIP service.
  • Modem Configuration: Make sure to access the modem's configuration settings to ensure that the telephone service or VoIP settings are configured correctly.

Although we can give you some general information on this topic if you have Internet/VOIP/modem questions specific steps may vary depending on your internet service provider please refer to the documentation provided by your service provider.
