Linksys PAP2-NA Phone Adapter Configuration Instructions
Linksys PAP2-NA Phone Adapter Configuration Instructions: The Linksys Phone Adapter enables use of high-quality feature-rich telephone service through your cable or DSL Internet connection. Just plug it into your home Router or Gateway and use the two standard telephone jacks to connect your existing phones. Each phone jack operates independently, with separate phone service and phone numbers -- like having two phone lines, you'll get clear telephone reception, even while using the Internet at the same time for normal data operations. Here are steps for phone adapter configuration:

STEP 1
You must first determine what IP address it received. To do this, you need to pick up the phone attached to the Line 1 jack ( of  linksys PAP2 phone device )

  • dial: **** (four asterisks)
  • hear "linksys configuration menu"
  • then dial: 110 #
  • and you will be told the IP address of your device (e.g. 192.168.0.100).

STEP 2
Go to browser on any computer on your network and enter the address:


http://<IP ADDRESS>/

Replace <IP ADDRESS> by the address that was given to you in STEP 1.

STEP 3
Click on the "Admin Login" button near the top right side of the screen, then click on the "Line 1" tab.

STEP 4
Modify a few parameters from the factory default. They are:

  • Proxy: sip.inphonex.com
  • Display Name: Enter your full name, this will show up as part of your caller id.
  • User ID: Enter the phone number you chose when you signed up for InPhonex service.
  • Password: Enter the password that you chose when you signed up for InPhonex service.
  • Register Expires: 3600

STEP 5
Save bandwidth: change Line 1 "Preferred Codec" to G729a.

Also change the "Use Pref Codec Only" to No.

You can only do this for one line. So, if Line 1 is on G.729a, Line 2 has to be some other codecs.

STEP 6
Save settings. Click on the "Save Settings " button at the bottom of the form.

STEP 7
Done - Ready to make calls!

Solution 1:

Check ON-OFF button of your phone ( the phone which connects to Linksys PAP2 device ) - Make sure it turns ON

If the phone set has a bad ring, replace by a good phone set.

Note:
PAP2 is NOT working well with a digital phone since it may encounter some problems. It must be a analog phone to work good with the PAP2 device.

If you are using cordless phone - Not all cordless phones are quite compatible with VoIP, although many of them will work good for incoming calls and out coming calls but can not ring with incoming calls. Make sure to choose the one which works with Linksys PAP2 devices. All ANALOG CORDLESS PHONE models with 2.4 GHz to 5.8 GHz, 900 MHz should work good with VOIP services. 

Solution 2:
If you are using ROUTER - check the ROUTER. The router which connects between ADSL (Modem/Jack/Filter...) and Linksys phone device must be working good.

ADSL(Modem/Jack/Filter) -->ROUTER--> LINKSYS PAP2-->PHONE

The router must be in good condition

Solution 3:
If you are using a router,  you might need to do port forward. This issue is usually caused when the router doesn’t send the traffic back. It can be resolved by configuring your router to allow Internet access to the device, and to force a forwarding of any relevant data to it.
This is done by setting the router to route traffic in specific ports we use, to the unique IP address the device uses in your local network.

How to fix: all you to do is open the ports in the DSL router. In the DSL router, need to change forward port 80 to the PAP2 LAN IP which requires for the remote router to be remote configure enabled. No changes need to be made in the PAP2 Linsys Device.

For full instructions please refer router’s Manual Guide or consult with its manufacturer. Instructions for specific routers can be found at . 

Solution 4:

You might need to change Ring Waveform from Linksys device.

Change Ring Waveform from Sinusoid to trapezoid.

Log into Admin by typing the IP address into browser

Go to Advanced View

Click on REGIONAL tab

Select Trapezoid

(Change the Ring Waveform from Sinusoid to Trapezoid)
Change the Ring Frequency from 25 to 20 (20 is the true specification for North America).

Click Save and Exit

If issue still persists, increase the Ring Voltage to 90.
