STEP 2Insert the long end of the telephone cable into the RJ-11 handset port on the telephone body that is marked with a telephone symbol. 

STEP 3 (Optional) Pass the telephone cable through the cable slot.

STEP 4 Insert the other end of the telephone cable into the port on the bottom of the handset (not shown).

 

How to connect a Cisco IP Phone to the power supply?

Cisco 500 Series IP Phones do not ship with power supplies. If you are not using Power over Ethernet (PoE), you must order a Cisco PA100 power supply for each Cisco phone. 

If you are using Power over Ethernet (PoE) to power the phone, the phone receives power when you connect an Ethernet cable from the phone’s SW port to a switch that provides PoE.

If you are using a Cisco PA100 power adapter, insert one end of the power adapter into a power outlet and insert the other end into the power port on the phone body. 

 

How to connect a Cisco IP Phone to the network?

The phone can be connected to the network via a Cat5e Ethernet cable or higher, or via a wireless network connection.

 

How to connect a Cisco IP Phone to the wired network?

To connect the phone using an Ethernet cable:

STEP 1 Insert one end of the Ethernet cable into the network port on the RJ-45 phone port marked “SW”.¬†

STEP 2 Insert the other end of the Ethernet cable into the device, such as a switch. 

 

How to connect a Cisco IP Phone to the wireless network?

You can use a wireless device, such as Cisco Wireless-N Bridge for Phone Adapters (WNBP), to connect the IP Phone to a wireless network.

This example procedure requires the Cisco PA100 power adapter to supply power to the Cisco WNBP. Cisco does not recommend connecting a PC to the network using the phone when operating wirelessly..

To connect your phone to the Cisco WNBP:

STEP 1 Configure Cisco WNBP using the configuration wizard. 

Step 2When prompted by the configuration wizard, insert the Ethernet cable from the wireless bridge into the RJ-45 phone port labeled SW, located on the back of the IP phone base station.

STEP 3 Connect the Cisco WNBP power cable to the phone base power port. 

Step 4 Connect one end of the IP phone power adapter to the power port on the wireless bridge.

STEP 5 Connect the other end of the IP phone power adapter to a power outlet.

 

How to connect a PC to a Cisco IP Phone?

A PC can be connected to the network through the phone. Cisco does not recommend connecting a PC to the phone if the phone is connected to the network wirelessly.

To connect a PC to your phone:

STEP 1 Connect one end of a Cat5e or higher Ethernet cable (not included) to the RJ-45 port marked PC on the back of the phone body. See the image above.

STEP 2Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your PC. 

 

How to connect wired and wireless headsets to a Cisco IP Phone?

Cisco IP Phones support headsets from other manufacturers. For the latest supported models, contact your reseller. Additional information can be found on the manufacturers’ websites.

Each brand and type of headset may require different steps for connection. Refer to the documentation for your particular headset for more information. In general, to connect a headset:.

  • Wireless: connect the headset’s telephone cable to the telephone port on the back of the IP phone.
  • Wired headset: connect the headset’s 2.5 mm jack to the headset port on the right side of the IP phone:

How to perform the startup verification explained in this Cisco Handbook?

After receiving power and network connectivity, the phone executes a boot sequence. During this sequence, phones with IP Phone screens display the Cisco logo, the message Initializing Network and all phone lights flash. 

Once your phone successfully connects to the network, it searches for and downloads an updated configuration and firmware. When the startup process is complete, the extension number appears on the IP phone’s display (on models with an IP phone display) and the phone has a dial tone.

On models with IP phone displays, the phone displays the standard phone menu. The date, name and phone number are displayed on the top line of the IP phone display. At the bottom of the IP phone screen, the softkeys are displayed above their associated softkeys.

On models without an IP phone display, such as the Cisco SPA501G, the lines light green and you hear a dial tone when the handset is lifted or when the speakerphone button is pressed.

If the phone does not start, confirm your installation and connections. If these are correct, try unplugging the phone and plugging it back in. The phone connection cycle updates the configuration and firmware. If you still do not see the screen, contact your phone administrator or Internet telephony service provider (ITSP).
