I recently deployed a brand new J179 phone to replace a 9611G and have a laptop connected via the ethernet port on the back of the phone. The J179 is working fine, talking to the IPO via DHCP with no issues. Strangely my laptop which also has DHCP enabled has been given a completely different ip address and subnet. If I plug the laptop into the back of a J169 or any other IP phone, everything works fine. It's probably something simple but can anyone help me understand what this new J179 could be doing with its ethernet port? FYI- The ethernet port is enabled and have checked all the settings in the admin on the J179, everything looks fine but I must be missing something...
