Question about NetGear SPH200D IP Wireless Phone
"System Starting Up" usually comes up while waiting for an IP since the system loads rather quickly. Plus you've already flashed the system, so you know it is clean. I know you can see a light indicating a LAN connection but are you really sure it's connecting to the Internet, or just to the router?
Because I suspect the phone is just not resolving an IP or that your Firewalled from Skype. You would get a light regardless, if it is attached to the LAN with or without a valid IP, but would not actually be on the Internet. So Skype would not be able to connect. Although I know you probably checked, a firewall would cause a similar error as Skype requires both port 80 and port 443.
I would go onto the web interface on your router and see if the phone is actually being recognized as a device, see if it has leased an IP, and check that you have not limited DHCP in some way. Also try pinging the phone's IP from another device, since your router should tell you what IP was assigned to the phone. If you are home, you may even want to try running the phone directly into your DSL or cable modem to test it.
I believe one of these would fix it, but if everything else is good, I would then start suspecting a hardware issue.

Every Seagate drive requires a few firmware updates during its lifetime.
Seagate firmware must be up-to-date to ensure that the product will run reliably.
Changing the firmware on a Seagate product to a more updated version will improve the product's performance.
Check the Seagate website often for any update available for your drive.
The firmware can be changed with just a few clicks of your mouse on the Seagate Web page.
Click the "Start" button on the bottom-left corner of the screen.
In the window that pops up, click " My computer " or just "Computer."
Another window will show up with an icon for your hard drive.
Right-click the hard drive icon and press the "Properties" option.
This will tell you what model your hard drive is.
For example, your hard drive might be ST31500341AS.
Open your Web browser. Type in www.seagate.com and press "Enter" on the keyboard.
Wait for the webpage to load.
Enter the word "Firmware" and your model number in the search box on the upper right hand corner of the webpage and press "Enter" on the keyboard.
Using the example from Step 1, type in "Firmware ST31500341AS".
Click on the first link that is returned in the search results.
Locate the firmware update. Double-click the update.
