Setting up your modem with voice capabilities

Below is an example of a modem gateway with voice capabilities. If your modem is not voice capable, you will not be able to set up the phone service. Please make sure to check with the modem manufacturer if you're unsure.

1. Using an internet browser, access the main page of the router and look for 'Voice', 'VoIP', or 'Phone' setup. Below is a sample page for a TP-Link modem.

2. Click the 'Add' button to allow you to add a new phone service.

3. After saving your setup. Your home phone service will then attempt to connect. You will know it is successful when you can see the status as 'Up' or for some devices, 'Registered'.

Once the phone service is connected, you should have dialtone and be able to make an outgoing call. Please read this article for further troubleshooting steps.
