Okay - how should I even begin - let's go right to the beginning shall we? I recently purchase a fairly new property in Auckland and the property has an existing home network called Signet ST2206 - I've never heard of Signet before or even know how home network works until recently been doing some reading. I am new to this like a new born, so calling all the techie techie guys out there to help me out!

 

After trying to get my bearing with Signet I've managed to get my Fiber connection working and guess what is the next step? THE PHONE! I don't understand how the phone wiring works from the Phone Patch to the wall panel, so like we all do.. we go ahead and google - yes the diagram from Trical, great! But still not very helpful especially for someone new to the whole home system. Could someone please. please explain to how to connect our landline phone or even better, diagram maybe you could come up with?

 

Here are some images of the existing system.

Hi yes, I've seen as mentioned in above - "yes the diagram from Trical".

The ST2206 isn't really intended for fibre connections, but should work...

Your cabinet has unfortunately been set up as a bit of a mess, which makes it a bit hard to see what's going on.

I'm guessing that each of the grey cables in the bundle at the top is terminated with a plug? Each of those will lead to a socket somewhere around your house. Ideally they'd be labelled some way (or better yet terminated to a patch panel) but failing that you will just need to use trial and error to figure out which is which.

I couldn't see your ONT (i.e. your "fibre modem") in that photo, so assume its installed behind your TV or somewhere else in your house? Your phone will be served either from a port on the ONT, or on your router, depending on which ISP you are with. If ifs from your ONT, then you'll need to connect a cable from the phone port to the wall jack, then connect the grey cable that corresponds to that jack into one of the six right-hand most ports on the ST2206. If you then connect other grey cables into those six ports, then the corresponding jacks around the house should be livened up as phone jacks.

Hope that makes sense.

Knowing what's going on in there is impossible to know from your photos.

 

The other black module is an IP alarm adapter.
