How do I set up my home phone?
ORCON @HOME PHONE LINE
If you’ve got a normal home phone line with Orcon @Home, then you can just plug your phone into a normal jack point. Make sure you use an ADSL filter, or else your internet connection can degrade or disconnect.
ORCON GENIUS PHONE LINE
If you’ve got a Genius phone line on ADSL, VDSL or UFB, then you need to set up your home phone by plugging your handset or base station directly into the telephone slot on the modem. This is different from how you may have previously set up your home phone as the normal jack points in the house will no longer work.
See the following examples, depending on which modem you have:
