  • If you’re using an IP phone that was used with another provider, do a factory reset on the phone before you get started.

Access the Web Interface

Configuration of the phone is best done from your computer using a web browser. 

If you have not yet performed a factory reset of your phone, it's highly recommended that you do that before you get started.

Follow the steps below to gain access to the phone's configuration page.

  1. Press the Settings button on the phone. It has a little gear icon on it.
  2. Go to "Phone Status" and press Enter.
  3. Go to "IP & Mac Address" and press Enter.
  4. Your display will now show your IP address. It may look something like this: 192.168.0.50. Take note of the address.
  5. Open your favorite web browser and enter the IP address directly into the address field of your browser, then press enter.
  6. The page will now ask you for a username and password. By default, the username is "admin" and the password is "22222".
