Re: 2 phone setup

Is it plugged in to a wall socket, or is it a DECT handset?


The phones need to be connected to the Modem in order to work.


Corded phones get plugged in to the green phone port on the modem and DECT handsets are paired with the modem, or a corded basestation (that has been plugged in to the modem).

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
