SPA8800 Firmware - Bridge/Switch mode

Unanswered Question
Sep 12th, 2009

My SPA8800 has firmware 6.1.7 (GW). The Quick Start Guide lists an IVR Action # 201 for setting the device mode for Router/NAT or Bridge/Switch. The IVR however reports this option to be invalid. Web interface does not have the option either. I would like to use the Bridge/Switch mode. Will this require a firmware update or have I missed something configuration wise ? Where do I find the required firmware update ?

Dear Sir;

SPA8800 is a client device. The LAN port cannot be used other than for Admin purposes, and it is set in NAT mode (should not be changed). I will ask the documentation team to have a look and potentially correct the document to remove this option from the documentation.

Thanks for highlighting this issue and helping us to make better products.

Thanks for letting us know about the documentation error.

We've revised the SPA8800 Quick Start Guide. The updated version is available here:

I have also linked to it from the Community's ATA documentation page:
