How to Connect Your Phone Handset

  • Using the Grey RJ11 to RJ11 cable included with the Huawei Hg659 modem packaging, connect your phone handset to the  Phone1  port on the back of the modem

How to manually configure your VoIP Settings

Before you begin:

  • Your Huawei HG659 router is pre-configured with your VoIP/Voice settings so you should only need to refer to this guide if your router has been factory reset or if the settings have been lost, it can be re-configured by following the below steps
  • We dot not recommend editing the router settings without consulting us first if you are not familiar with its functionality
  • These settings are for the Voyager retailed Huawei HG659 router. If you have a Huawei HG659 router from another internet service provider, we can not guarantee the VoIP service will be compatible.
  • If you are setting up your Voyager modem for the first time, then please refer to our first time setup guide as these settings will be automatically configured on your modem
  • You’ll need your broadband connection to be fully provisioned and working – check your email for a “PROV-xxxxx: Your service should now be active!” email.
