Netgear fs516 default ip address

switches do not normally have ip addresses as they are layer 2 network devices. They work on the MAC address of each network card attached to it to direct the network packets of data to the correct Network card.
Cisco Switches have an IP address but it is a virtual ip address used to remotely log into a Cisco Switch via IP but has nothing to do with the switching function however this is not a cisco switch.
Routers have IP addresses and use them to switch IP addressed packets to other Networks that have Routers connected to Switches.

You can try a couple of things: Unplug the power cable from the phone, hold dows the # key, and then plug the power cable in again. The phone begins its power up cycle. Release the # key after the Speaker button is no longer lit. You should see the following message on the phone: "Reset key sequence detected" Press 123456789*0# within 60 seconds after the Headset, Mute, and Speaker buttons begin to flash. If you enter this key sequence correctly, the phone displays this prompt: Keep network cfg? 1 = yes 2 = no In order to maintain the current network configuration settings for the phone when the phone resets, press 1. In order to reset the network configuration settings when the phone resets, press 2.

I have Netgear N router and having problems trying to establish phone connection with my Mitel 5312 ip phone. I have fowarded all the ports, disabled router firewall powercycle everthing a thousand times...

The phone is intended to be connected to a Mitel PBX telephone system. If you're using the phone at home, you must set the phone in Teleworker mode and use the IP address of the teleworker server. This will allow your phone to tunnel into the phone system.

OR the phone must be set up in SIP mode. Press and hold the 6 key while booting the phone. You will also need to set it up and tell it where the SIP server is located (IP addresses).

If you don't have this information, you should contact your vendor or system admin for further assistance.

If you are trying to use the phone without the above servers, I have bad news - it won't work.

Unable to connect 2 routers need help!


Do you have any funky subnets for your Cisco router? Do not connect the wireless router to your network yet, as it may have the same IP address as your other router.

Basically the easiest way to do this is to set a dedicated IP for the 2Wire router on the Cisoo router. Then make them stay on the same subnet, but give an IP range for your Cisco router, like 1-50 or something. If you give the 2Wire router IP .51 for instance, then give the Wifi users on the 2Wire IP range from .52-75 or something.

Make the 2Wire router only use wifi and not serve DHCP addresses. Then you setup the 2Wire router to get its info from the Cisco router.

I searched and there is no howto out there for doing this with a Cisco router. However, here is one I used to setup a similar scenario with a Netgear router. It worked. If you are able to translate a bit, it might work for you:,235,239&

Here is another article:,246,260&

Let me know if you are able to work through this. You need to give the 2wire router a static IP and you need to NOT use it for wired connections, and not use it to serve DHCP settings.
