I used to install the SPA-2102 ATAs at my customers sites (POS) in a very fast and reliably way by using the following procedure:
- Connect 'Internet' socket (to LAN), phone and power
- Got to IVR (****)
- Enable WAN Admin Support by entering 7932#1#1
- Enter http://spa.ip/admin/resync?http://server.ip/... in webbrowser
- there we go :-)
I have to use the blue LAN port, because multiple SPAs are daisy chained (from yellow to blue, etc.)
With the new SPA122 however, enabling the wan admin web interface is no longer possible, as long as the default admin password is 'admin'. But how can I change the admin password without getting to the WAN web configuration? Here we have a deadlock. Very disappointing!!!
Sometimes I also had the need to change the network mode from NAT to Bridge. I always used the (undocumented) IVR code 201#, that worked absolutely fine. The SPA122 accepts the code, but the setting remains unset. It would be really nice if this is going to be fixed, as it comes in handy in some all days situations.
Can theese two issues please be corrected with the next firmware version?
I often send the devices directly from the distributor to my customers. They are brand new and she only has to simply connect the phone and the cables. The rest is done by me remotely. Because when working remotely I cannot change the IP address of the local PCs to 192.168.15.x using the 'Ethernet' port is no option
Has anyone a solution how to circumvent my problems with the new devices, until the firmware supports the old behaviour?
I appreciate any comments! :-)
