Handset ringer problem with VoIP

I installed my Vtech #6773, 5.8 mhz base to the internet phone adapter, router, cable modem per instructions. I have a dial tone on all 3 handsets. But, when a call comes in, the base rings, the call transmits to all handsets, but they do not ring. I unplugged the base, pulled batteries and reconnected everything. Then, I made sure the ringers were all on, volume up, not muted, etc; and still nothing.

SOURCE: lowering ringer volume on handset v tech 5.8 digital phone

You didn't indicate exact model of your phone. However I have indicated the procedure used for common Vtech's 5.8Ghz phones

Ringer volume
• With the handset or base in idle (off) mode, press MENU then
press ▲ or ▼ until RINGER VOLUME is shown
• Press SEL. You will hear a sample of the ringer
• Press ▲,▼ or a digit (0 through 6) You will hear a sample of
the new ringer volume and the volume bar will be increased or
decreased each time the setting is adjusted At the lowest setting
the ringer will be turned off and the display will show:
- OR -
• With the handset or base in idle (off) mode, press or of the
volume control will directly go to ringer volume menu
• Press ▲ or ▼ to adjust the ringer volume

Good Luck

Can i turn down the base ringer (or turn off) on my vtech dect 6.0?

Welcome to FixYa!

The base ringer is dependent to your handset ringer. If you lower the volume or turn off the handset ringer, the base ringer will follow.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have a great day.

More information is needed about your setup.

Do you have:

cable modem <--> router <--> computer
cable-telephone-box <---> telephone


DSL-modem <--- VOIP adapter --> telephone
and VOIP adapter -> WAN port on WRT54G <--> computer

Please clarify.

Just connected router to clear network modem and VoIP (wireless phone service), now when the phone ring, it disconnects me from the internet and the connection is lost until the phone call is complete.

Is your modem a DSL or cable modem?
If it is a DSL modem do you have a DSL filter on each phone line to the phones in your house?
The DSL modem does not need a DSL filter on the phone line.

Have system for voip. Only can't hook up the

Try getting a router that has one in/4 out between modem n voip. Your voip unit should have an RJ45 connector to connect to router, not your computer. The USB connector might be to connect the voip to a different type of router, and will not be used. The 2 phone connectors are for two different phone lines that your voip provider can provide you with.

Phone trying to connect to the base but cannot

You possibly have a Mhz signal conflict with another appliance in your home or in another 'apartment' if you live in a complex.  If not, there is a similar or identical signal (with the same Mhz listed on your phone in your home from another appliance trying to use the same frequency) interfering, like a router or router/modem for wireless internet.  I had a similar problem when I had a wireless home phone not connecting to the base and would not call, stay connected or code right with the base.  I used a Linksys router to connect to an AT&T modem and nothing matched. Until I got AT&T to upgrade me to their "2wire" router/modem combination built in and my wireless internet problem was solved.  But, the V-Tech phone lost it's ability to connect or operate properly after that, even with a new battery.  We scrapped the wireless base and phone and now stay wired, also an option.
