What Are the Requirements for Telephone Service?

What Are the Requirements for Telephone Service?

Number of Telephone Devices

The RJ-11 telephone-style connectors on the residential gateway can each provide telephone service to multiple telephones, fax machines, and analog modems.

The maximum number of telephone devices connected to each RJ-11 port is limited by the total Ringing Load of the telephone devices that are connected. Many telephone devices are marked with a Ringer Equivalent Number (REN). Each telephone port on the residential gateway can support up to a 5 REN load.

The sum of the REN load on all of the telephone devices attached to each port must not exceed 5 REN.

Telephone Device Types

You can use telephone devices that are not labeled with a REN number, but the maximum number of attached telephone devices cannot be accurately calculated. With telephone devices that are not labeled, each device should be connected and the ring signal should be tested before adding more devices. If too many telephone devices are attached and the ring signal can no longer be heard, telephone devices should be removed until the ring signal works properly.

Telephones, fax machines, and other telephone devices should use the center 2 pins of the RJ-11 connectors to connect to the residential gateway telephone ports. Some telephones use other pins on the RJ-11 connectors and require adapters in order to work.

Dialing Requirements

All your telephones should be set to use DTMF dialing. Pulse dialing is typically not enabled by your local provider.

Telephone Wiring Requirements

The residential gateway supports connecting to the interior telephone wiring as well as connecting directly to a telephone or fax machine. The maximum distance from the unit to the most distant telephone device must not exceed 1000 feet (300 meters). Use 26-gauge twisted-pair, or larger, telephone wiring.

Important: Connection to an existing or a new permanently installed home telephone wiring network must be done by a qualified installer.

Telephone connections to an installed home telephone wiring network must be done by a qualified installer. The cable telephone service provider may offer professional installation and connection to the home telephone wiring network. A fee may be charged for this service.

Wiring and connections must be properly insulated to prevent electrical shock.

Disconnect power from the residential gateway before attempting to connect to any device.

2Power off your PC and other networking device; then, unplug them from the power source.

3Connect the active RF coaxial cable from your service provider to the coax connector labeled CABLE on the back of the residential gateway.

Note: To connect a TV, DHCT, set-top, or VCR from the same cable connection, you will need to install a cable signal splitter (not included). Always check with your service provider before using a splitter as a splitter may degrade the signal.

4Connect your PC to the residential gateway using either of the following methods.

Ethernet Connection: Locate the yellow Ethernet cable, connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your PC, and connect the other end to the yellow ETHERNET port on the back of the residential gateway.

Note: To install more Ethernet devices than ports provided on the residential gateway, use an external multi-port Ethernet switch(s).

Wireless: Make sure that your wireless device is powered up. You will need to associate your wireless device with the wireless gateway once the gateway is operational. Follow the directions provided with your wireless device for associating with a wireless access point.

More information about the factory default configuration of your wireless gateway can be found later in this user guide in Configure Wireless Settings (on page 38).

How Do I Connect My Gateway for Internet and Telephone Service?

5Connect one end of a telephone jumper cable (not included) to a telephone outlet in your home or to a telephone or fax machine. Then connect the other end of the jumper cable to the appropriate RJ-11 TELEPHONE port on the back of the residential gateway. The telephone ports are light gray and are labeled 1/2 and 2 or 1 and 2 depending on the region of the world the residential gateway is used.

Notes:

Make sure to connect your telephone service to the correct RJ-11 port. For single line telephone service, connect to port 1/2 or 1.

In North America, residential gateways have multi-line capability on the RJ-11 telephone port labeled 1/2. Line 1 is on pins 3 and 4 of port 1/2, and Line 2 is supported on pins 2 and 5. In Europe, residential gateways support only one line per port. Line 1 is on port 1 and line 2 is on port 2.

Telephones that require electrical connectors other than RJ-11 may require an external adapter (sold separately).

6Locate the AC power cord provided with your residential gateway. Insert one end of the power cord into the AC connector on the back of the residential gateway. Then, plug the AC power cord into an AC outlet to power-up the residential gateway. The residential gateway will perform an automatic search to locate and sign on to the broadband data network. This process may take up to 2- 5 minutes. The modem will be ready for use when the POWER, DS, US and ONLINE LEDs on the front panel of the residential gateway stop blinking and remain on continuously.

7Plug in and power on your PC and other home network devices. The LINK LED on the residential gateway corresponding to the connected devices should be on or blinking.

8Once the residential gateway is online, most Internet devices will have immediate Internet access.

Note: If your PC does not have Internet access, refer to Frequently Asked Questions (on page 94) for information on how to configure your PC for TCP/IP. For Internet devices other than PCs, refer to the DHCP or IP Address configuration section of the User Guide or Operations Manual for those devices.
