Normal Operation:

Checking the Auxbox front panel LEDs, you should see:

  • Power/USB: winking to indicate USB communication with the PC.
  • Norstar/BCM/Meridian 1: winking to indicate PBX TN connection.
    (Allow approx. 8 seconds for this to show).

Lift the telephone handset (or go off-hook with the speakerphone) and check the 'Off-Hook' LED responds. This indicates that the Auxbox is working properly.

USB Auxbox: Windows Device Manager
USB Auxbox: Windows Sound Device

The first time an AuxBox is connected to a PC via USB, Windows will show a 'New hardware Found' message, and automatically install the required drivers. A Windows CD may be required.

Windows should install up to 3 sets of drivers: USB Composite Device, USB Audio Device, and Human Interface Device (HID).

After the USB Audio Device drivers are installed, open the device manager and confirm a USB Auxbox is shown under the Sound category. The Auxbox will also appear in the Sound control panel.
