Setting up your modem with VOIP capabilities

Below is an example of a modem gateway with VOIP capabilities. If your modem is not VOIP capable, you will not be able to set up the phone service. Please make sure that you check with your manufacturer that your modem is VOIP-capable

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 VOIP service. You will then see something like the image below to allow you to set up the service.

3. After saving your setup. Your VoIP 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'.

If, after about 5 minutes you're not able to get a dial tone, or make outgoing calls, check this article.
