Introduction

Your BT On-Air1800 provides anall-in-onesolution combining telephone, answering machine and wireless modem for Internet access.

By plugging the BT On-AirUSB unit into your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to the Internet from anywhere in or around your home without wires.

The proven DECT digital cordless technology is used for the voice and data communication between the handset or BT On-AirUSB unit, and the base. The base plugs into your telephone socket and features a fast 56k Internet Modem.

Minimum PC requirements

Windows 98, Me, 2000 or XP.

Pentium Processor 200MHz.

32MB RAM.

Free USB port (if an external USB hub is used, it must be mains powered).

CD drive for installation of software.

Note

The BT On-Air1800 Wireless Modem is approved for connecting to Internet Service Providers supporting V.90 connections. This is the case for all major ISPs. It does not support fax send/receive. It also cannot receive incoming modem calls and therefore does

not support remote access using callback mechanism.

Safety information

General

Only use the power supply included with the product. Using an unauthorised power supply will invalidate your guarantee and may damage the telephone. The item number for the mains power supply is 001040.

If Keyguard is active, it is still possible to make emergency calls to 999 and112.

Do not open the handset or base station. This could expose you to high voltages or other risks. Contact the helpline for all repairs.

Radio signals transmitted between the handset and base may cause interference to hearing aids.

This product should not be used near emergency/intensive care medical equipment and should not be used by people with pacemakers.

Never dispose of batteries in a fire. There is a serious risk of explosion and/or the release of highly toxic chemicals.

Cleaning

Simply clean the handset, USB unit and base station with a damp (not wet) cloth, or an antistatic wipe. Never use household

polish as this will damage the product. Never use a dry cloth as this may cause a static shock.

Environmental

Do not expose to direct sunlight.

The product may heat up when the batteries are being recharged. This is normal. However, we recommend that you do not place the product on antique/veneered wood to avoid damage.

Do not stand your product on carpets or other surfaces which generate fibres, or place it in locations preventing free flow of air over it’s surfaces.

Do not submerge any part of your product in water and do not use it in damp or humid conditions, such as in bathrooms.

Do not expose your product to fire, explosive or other hazardous conditions.

There is a slight chance that your phone could be damaged by an electrical storm. We recommend that you unplug the power and telephone line cord for the duration of the storm.

Setting up

Base and handset

Your handset is already registered to the base.

1Plan the location

Situate your base close enough to the telephone and mains power sockets so that the cables will reach.

The only way to disconnect the product from the power supply is to remove the power adaptor from the mains power socket. Therefore you must ensure you plan the location so that the mains power is easily accessed.

Make sure it is at least 1 metre away from other electrical products to avoid interference.

Do not situate the product in the bathroom or other humid areas.

2Connect the power supply and switch on.

Important

You must thread the power supply cable and line cord through the plinth before you connect into the sockets on the base.

WARNING

Once connected, put the plinth back on the base to prevent it from rocking on the table.

There are two positions for the plinth when joining it to the base, both can be used for desk mounting and one for wall mounting. Position A is for desk mounting only and positionB is for desk or wall mounting(see wall mounting on page 51).

Rubber feet

Hold the black plastic square between thumb and forefinger and peel off individual feet from backing sheet as shown. These are to stop your base from moving and to protect your work surface.

If you decide on position B, place 2 of the rubber feet on the plinth and 2 on the base.

Place the handset in the cradle on the base station. The handset display will show the battery symbol. If it does not appear, see Help, page 48.

Plug the power adaptor into the wall socket and switch on. When the power is switched on, the PLAY button on your base will light up green.

3Charge the battery in the handset for at least 16 hours

WARNING

Under no circumstances should non-rechargeablebatteries be used. Only use the approved batteries. Using unapproved batteries will invalidate your guarantee and may damage the telephone.

Fully discharging the batteries at least once a month will help them to last as long as possible. However, the charge capacity of rechargeable batteries will reduce with time as they wear out, so reducing the talk/standby time of the handset. Eventually they will need to be replaced. New batteries can be obtained from any BT Shop or from the Helpline on 0845 300 0156.

Battery low warning

If the handset battery symbol is empty and you hear warning beeps, you will need to recharge your handset before you can use it.

Battery performance

Your handset is supplied with NiMH batteries. These need to be initially charged continuously for 16 hours to reach full charge.

Note that the battery charge icon does not indicate the correct level when the batteries are first installed. The batteries must first be fully charged.

4Connect the telephone line cord

Plug the line cord into the telephone wall socket.
