The Linksys or Cisco Phone Adapter converts analogue voice signals into digital form. This means your voice signals can be transferred using the Internet often for free. The device therefore lets you make VoIP calls using your normal land-line phone sets with RJ11 connectors which are standard telephone plugs instead of a soft dialler. This can often enhance the quality of your VoIP calls or prove more convenient than using your laptop/PC to make calls

However, to use the device you must first configure the settings with your service provider and account information. To do this you must log into the device admin page using any browser online. Here is how.

Step 1: Connect the ATA and Your Phone Set.

Connect the device to your broadband router using an Ethernet cable as shown in the picture and make sure the device is plugged in. Also plug in your RJ11 phone set into one of the two device ports. You should see the green lights lit up.
