Hardware Installation


Connect the handset to the base of the V90 VoIP Phone using the supplied cable.


Use the enclosed Ethernet cable to connect the LAN port to a hub/switch, or DSL Router/Cable Modem.

Note: If your network is not PoE (Power over Ethernet) enabled then you will require an external power adapter before you can use the
VoIP Phone. Please contact NetComm to purchase the correct power adapter for this product.


For first time installation, the phone will scan the network for available services which are DHCP, PPPoE,
and Fixed IP. Select the preferred service and enter the required information if needed. No user input is
required for DHCP service. User ID and Password are required for PPPoE. IP address, Netmask, and
Gateway IP Address are required for Fixed IP mode.

Notes: If you connect the unit to an existing router, please use DHCP mode.
