The VOIP phone simply hangs waiting for a DHCP assigned IP address to be assigned to it. That never happens. The same phone works great with the previous d-link router - AirPlus Extreme G without any problems.

To answer your question: Your phone has lost connection to the VOIP network. These types of phones use DHCP to assign an IP address to themselves from your VOIP network, usually by means of a switch or router. When they lose connection to this switch or router, they cannot communicate with the VOIP network and load their network environment, called PXE. This in turn loads the phone. Try replacing the patch cable on the phone between the phone and the wall. If that doesn't resolve your issue call your Telcom Specialist who installed the VOIP Network. He will need to test the phone, switch, Firewall, and VLAN to make sure the phone hasn't died or his configuration hasn't been hosed in the router or VLAN. He may also need to reset his VOIP box.
Someone configured a static IP on your network. The DHCP server thinks that IP is free and keeps handing it out to you. You can either trace the equipment (workstation or phone) that has that IP or you can go into the CRAFT menu and assign a static to the equipment (please check with your network or system administrator to see what IP you can assign to your phone. Also talk to your network admin if you are using VLANs)
To get into the craft menu and change the ip address settings
1. during the startup of the phone press the * key when you see "* to Program" during initialization
2. enter 27238#
3. navigate to the ADDR menu
4. change the ip address, call server ip, subnet, router to the correct ip addresses
5. if needed change the http, https, or file server address
6. restart phone
Okay---- assuming you have a "Network Light ON" for this device and your ethernet connection shows on your computer..... Make sure LAN [ethernet} port does NOT have an assigned IP Address. It should be set to DHCP!!!!!
1.] Try address of 192.168.1.1
that fails... try 2.]
2.] If you are using Windows, get yourseld to a "Command Prompt"---- aka the old DOS Prompt.
a.] enter "arp -a" without the quote
This should show the IP Address[s] of ALL devices on your LAN. One should be the wireless router.
sounds like your belkin router is not setup as a DHCP server or the DHCP is disabled. The DHCP in the belkin assigns addresses to the internal network, the error "waiting for network to initialize" means that the phone is waiting for an IP address, to which its not getting. When you connect directly to your modem you get an IP from your Internet service provider. I'll bet your internal network is setup using "static" ip addresses, if thats the case you will need to surf into the phones web console and set a static IP address. Or the opposite, enable DHCP in the belkin.
hope that clarifies things a little.
First, be sure to assign an ip address(in the proper subnet) to each VLAN.
Second, use the ip helper-address command in the context of each VLAN, the address used should be the address of the DHCP server
Third, Add a scope for each additional VLAN on the DHCP server.
The switch will route the DHCP request to the proper server based on the ip helper-address command parameter and based on the ip address of the VLAN that is passed tot he server, a DHCP address in the proper subnet is automatically configured.
It would be helpful if you could be a bit more specific regarding the way you hooked up the dir 655 to your network and your specifc DSL modem. If the modem you are using is the Actiontec M1000 DSL modem you will not be able to obtain internet access because the DIR 655 is trying to route an already routed IP, the M1000 has a built in router / DHCP that by default is enabled. You can use option 1, access the configuration settings of your M1000 and change the WAN configuration to act as a transparent bridge. After doing so and rebooting the modem you will have to enter your DSL login information like a PPPoE username and password for example into your DIR 655 network settings. With this configuration the modem simply acts as a bridge to relay data directly to the DIR 655 and the 655 itself provides login credentials to obtain internet from your DSL provider as well as hand out IP addresses to the local network. Option 2 is to continue to use the M1000 as a router by default and disable DHCP on your DIR 655 so that it essentially acts as nothing more than a switch or wireless access point while the M1000 hands out local IP addresses. I personally would recommend using the DIR 655 to route IP's as it's got far more configuration utilities than the M1000 does as a router, and really what's the point of getting the 655 if you're only going to use it as a switch or access point when there are other simpler and cheaper devices that could do that for you.
U have to tell me whether u have to unplug machines or the router If that's the case dhcp for ur router is assigned from some other place. Weird. U have to enable dhcp of ur router. Don't allow running another dhcp from ur local systems only if it is a must. WHEN U CONFIGURE THE ROUTER'S DHCP, MAKE SURE TO SET THE LEASE TO A MAXIMUM VALUE SO THAT IT WANT CHANGE THE IP ADDRESSES FOR MACHINES. If u assign static ips u have assign the dns and also the default gateway Type ipconfig /all in a comand prompt and check the settings and set appropriately Remember, don't allow any other source to assign dhcp for the router.
If this solution works for U please rate the answer Thanks Best of Luck :)
