I've just connected my new broadband provider - BT and am having some difficulty with setting up my phone.
I have chosen option 1 but am unable to get my broadband phone service to work through the router - 220V. I believe that broadband phone should be part of my option.
We have an extra phone which is just connected to the ADSL filter and it seems to be working fine - receiving and dialling out.
However, the phone connected through the router is not working. How can I sort this out? As a last resort I could opt to plug the phone into the ADSL filter and make/receive normal phone cals, but I was hoping to be able to make broadband calls instead.
I've looked on the BT webpages and it seems that option 1 is available for us.
I have just noticed that this is for touchtone phones only. Our phone is a Cable & Wireless CWT 300. I've done a quick search of google and I can't see if this is a touchtone phone - how can I tell and is this the likely problem?
