Before you start configuring the adapter, make sure you have the following settings for your SIP account:
- SIP Server address (sometimes called SIP Proxy)
- SIP User ID (the phone number, with 1 in front of the area code)
- The password for the SIP account (a combination of letters and numbers)
To obtain these settings, you must contact Freephoneline and ask for your configuration file. There's a one time charge for this, currently $50 CAD + tax. They will send you a Word document with the settings.
Plug in the router (power, the WAN port to your modem, one of LAN ports to your computer and a phone into the phone port). Open a web browser and enter the router's IP address (usually 192.168.61.1) and login with username admin and password for the password.
