Hi, i'm hoping somebody can please help me.

I have been using VOIP via a softphone for a couple of years now, I decided that I wanted to have a go at setting up a Cisco phone. So I have got a 7940G second hand which works fine. I am a home user trying to learn so I am using a BT Homehub with dynamic IP and SIP on voip-talk.org

The phone was still configured form the previous owner with subnet, DNS, FTP, VLAN etc. I couldn't find a how to edit these settings, so I thought if I set it back to factory defaults, told it to delete network cfg. I thought on restarting it might ask me to input the detail? but it showing "configuring VLAN" and then constantly stays on "configuring IP"

although it stills picks up an IP via DHCP and I can ping it ok, I can also browse on to the web interface which show the following info

Basically I need to know first all how to at least change the settings, as I don't have access via the phone itself or the web interface. And I will probibly also need to reflash the firmware with something that will do SIP.

Thanks for looking and your help

RE: Please help

and in the the device debug log it keeps showing this error:

2027-08-06 09:04:39.990 Code:8107, P:0, S:0

the date doesn't change but the time does, not sure if the is any help?

RE: Please help

This firmware release is for SCCP protocol only and is not capable of doing SIP registration.
So you got 2 options. Load SIP firmware on the phone through a TFTP server or get a SCCP capable gateway (1st option would be the preffered in your case).
