I plan to be working from home for a while; will my desk phone work if I connect it to my home network?

Yes, it will work, but you should get permission from your principal, office manager, or supervisor first. Your phone will work anywhere in the world as long as it has Internet connectivity. You will get the best call quality if you connect the phone using an Ethernet cable; connecting via Wi-Fi works also, but you may experience intermittent choppy audio (because wireless signals are never perfect). If your phone doesn't have a Wi-Fi dongle and you would like one, send an email to dialpad@desalesmedia.org and we can probably get one for you.
