SPA-3102 setup

    I am rather confused about setting this thing up.

    I got this instead of the 3000 as it was the same price though I do not
    intend using the router at the moment.

    Basically I cannot get any joy out of the local IP.

    Using a phone I have set the Wan side to and allowed remote

    That way I was able to get into the browser interface via the WAN port
    at that address and set the LAN port to and Network
    services to Bridge (no router).

    I can get at the browser interface using either the Internet or Ethernet
    port at the WAN address but not the LAN address.

    Pinging fails.

    The Ethernet light on the front only flashes when the cable is in the
    Internet port and not in the Ethernet port.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Probably trying to match sockets labelled "WAN with WAN" & "LAN with LAN"

    System reset the SPA (can't remember numbers to dial) then plug the ethernet
    cable into your SPA's WAN socket. Plug the other end into your existing
    router's LAN socket. Dial **** on the handset attached to line 1 and wait
    for the prompt. Then dial 110# to learn the SPA's IP address which should've
    been allocated by your existing router.

    Correct. In the absence of any suitable documentation [*] that was my
    best guess :(
    That bit worked - issued by my existing router.

    However, I cannot browse at that address as the default is not to enable
    web-based utility.

    So after entering 7932# > 1 > 1 that now works.

    However, the LAN IP is still set as

    I presume I need to change that to my network. So going to the LAN
    setup page I change

    Network Service from NAT to Bridge
    Enable DHCP Server from Yes to No
    LAN IP from to

    Save settings.

    What I now see is that on the LAN Setup page LAN IP Address is however on the status page it is shown as

    I still cannot get in at Does this matter? M

    You don't need the LAN IP address. If you are using the 3102 with an
    existing router just imagine the LAN port/address isn't there. Connect
    the WAN port to the router as you have done, enable web management on
    the WAN interface as you have done and that's it. You don't need the
    NAT feature or DHCP server as your existing router is taking care of
    this. The 3102 would provide these services to devices connected to the
    LAN interface but you shouldn't have anything connected to it.

    Thanks - that puts my mind at rest.

    Now I just have to get two of these to work together.

    One is to be connected to a switchboard as an extension while the other
    is to go abroad and is to be used initially with a simple phone but
    later it will probably also be connected to a switchboard (not sure if
    as a line or extension)

    I have seen some notes from Provu but did not find them that clear.

    Anyone have some simple instructions?

    As at least one end is behind a NAT router (possibly both) would
    forwarding ports 5060 and 5061 solve that? I do not want to use any
    external SIP service.

    Are you trying to setup long-line extensions? I.E. one SPA-2100
    connected to the PBX ext. and another ATA somewhere out on the Internet?
    I would either setup a VPN between the two or use an external SIP
    service to provide NAT traversal. Opening up just ports 5060, 5061 wont
    help as the audio in the calls can use a large range of ports.

    As default this 16384-16482 on a Linksys ATA but you can reduce this
    range. You need to leave the range at 4 ports for two phone calls.

    Yes, with a later try at maybe connecting the remote up to a switchboard
    I presume it is specified in the setup page somewhere.
    So opening these will work without a SIP service?
