Re: voip841

Yes, If your phone supports SIP then you should be able to program any service provider. On the other hand if this is a Skype only phone then you will not be able to use it with any other service besides Skype because they use a non-standard protocol.
I tried looking up your phone and the closest I came was :

This says in the Tech Specs that it is voip client and softphone compatible (whatever that means). It doesnt say it is SIP compatible. So look up the user manual and if it says that your phone is SIP compatible then you should be able to program any VOIP service provider (90% of them are SIP based) but if all the manual mentions is Skype and nothing else, then you might be out of luck.
Hope that helps!

Is there any way to use the vtech 7100 with the latest SKYPE? Vtech support says they no longer support the 7100 because it is old. What a nasty way to treat customers.

I found a few people online with a similar problem. Here is the best answer I found from someone else:

"The latest Skype update made my Vtech USB7100 phone unable to recognize Skype. Vtech has no updates for the phone software, so I had to uninstall Skype and look for an older version. When I downloaded and installed, my phone was back in an instant. Hope this helps someone!"

Use this link for skype 4.0:

If that link doesnt work, try this 3.8 version

Hope that helps!!

How to connect the Skype Phone to Boingo ?

First, Boingo is a subscription based network, in order to use it, you will need an account with them.

On the Skype Phone go to Settings -> Network menu, where there is a sub menu for Boingo. Where the account details can be entered and the other Boingo settings can be specified.

The first releases of the firmware for version 1 of the Skype phone did not support Boingo; if the sub menu does not appear, you will need to update the firmware of the phone.

Firmware updates are available on the Belkin Support Site.

Problem with philips voip841

Try retrieve the IP address of your VOIP841, on the handset press the “Menu” button, navigate to the “Settings” menu and choose the option “Network”, then "DHCP", it should give you an IP address, make a note of this. Open your Internet browser and type in the IP Address of the VOIP841 into the address bar. The Internet browser will show the internal Internet page of your device. Login with the following username and password:

After logging in please navigate to the “Skype” menu option in the left side menu. On this page y ou can type your Skype username and password. Once they are filled in save your settings and test on the handset if everything is working.

VOIP841 will not register

Probably there is typo when entering user name or login. Check and see perhaps there are some unnecessary spaces in user name or password.
Also make sure internet connection is on and working + router is configured to accept new connection.

You only need a router and a DSL connection (with a Philips VoIP841). Have a look to this review: - Review :: Philips VOIP841 PC-free DECT/Skype phone - world's first review : Page - 4/4

Philips VOIP841 Cannot connect to Skype - Adsl problem?

Right. I've fixed it!

Here's what I did.

- You need to upgrade to the latest firmware. This is available from the Philips website. Make sure you select exactly the model of your phone. There are some instructions about how to upgrade the firmware in the manual
- Then you need to perform a reset of the system. ie: get a sharp tool and ram it into the tiny little hole on the black box which comes with the phone. If you don't do this after upgrading, it doesn' t work.
- One other tip is to check the firewall settings on your router allow the traffic in/out as well.

I called the Philips service center, and they were a bit useless, but they said if it doesn't work you could try taking the batteries out of the phone for 4 hours. Hmmmm... only try this if the above doesn't work!

Good luck.
