How to configure Linksys SPA phones with sipX

The following instructions cover the configuration of Linksys's IP phones with sipXecs

Identify the phone's IP address

  • Connect the phone to a network with DHCP and power the phone up using the provided power supply.
  • Once the phone is up, press the "Configure" button (just below the Envelope button).
  • Use the up/down scroll buttons to scroll down to option '8 Network' and press the 'Select' softkey.

NOTE: Make a note of option "2 Current IP" (the current IP address)

Perform a Factory Reset

  • If the phone has been used with other systems you may want to factory reset the phone.
  • With the phone powered up, press the "Configure" button (just below the Envelope button).
  • Use the up/down scroll buttons to scroll down to option '14 Factory Reset' and press the 'Select' softkey.
  • Press the "Ok" softkey to confirm.

Connect to the phone's Web User Interface

  • Open a Web browser from your PC and enter the IP address of the phone in the Web browser's address field.
  • Click Admin Login on the Linksys configuration Web page (there is no default password).

Set the phone to Auto Provision

  • In the Web Interface click on Admin Login -> Advanced -> Provisioning Tab
  • Change the Profile Rule to read: /spa$MA.cfg

Multi-line appearance

  • To have multiple appearances of the same line on a given phone, go to Devices/phones and select the phone to add the feature to.
  • Under Phone Settings/Phone modify the Extension number. Each defaults to their onwn number. To have line 1 appear on buttons 1, 2, 3, change Extension numbers 2 and 3 to have the number 1 in them. This will put line one in the first three line positions, and calls will hunt from 1 - 2 - 3 when lines are in use.
