Re: 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

How to connect the wifi phone to the dlink router

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network port on a computer (desktop/laptop/notebook) to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Start your computer's web-browser, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router.
Run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard" to configure your wireless network, i.e., pick an SSID and a password.
Then, configure your telephone to connect to that SSID, and to use the password that you selected.

Cant connect to my office router it ask to enter key what is this

For security reasons, the wifi router is always configured with a key. This will prevent unauthorized persons to access the internet via your wifi router.
You have to ask the administrator who configured router to get the key and you have to provide the saem when prompted in your computer/laptop in order to connect to your office router.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Mitel 5550 Console cannot obtain ip address.

Follow the proper boot-up sequence in the manual, and verify the PC boots up on the native lan first.

Skype sometimes working!


Looks like connectivity issue, so it can be wi-fi dongle.
If any other pc/laptop has wired internet connection Or if you can wire-connect present pc/laptop then you can test using skype from it. If it works fine then wi-fi dongle maybe the culprit.

Also there are many sites for testing internet connection speed etc.
Test your internet connection using the dongle.

Philips VOIP 3212

The VOIP321 from Phillips does NOT connect to your wireless router. It requires to be plugged into a USB port on a WINDOWS ONLY desktop computer, which needs to be left on/logged-in with Skype running to send and receive calls. It wont work with Vista either.
Additionally Since Skype Version (Release date: November 19, 2008) and all later versions (including Skype 4 Betas) the software Phillips supply no longer works with Skype and the VOIP321 phone. The latest VOIP321 <a href="" rel="nofollow">driver from their website</a> suffers the same issue, even though it states "The VOIP321 USB Phone Driver V 3.8.3 which can be downloaded from Philips web site is compatible with Skype software version from V2.0.0.x until V3.8.0.x". This is plainly no longer correct with the latest stable release of Skype, V3.8.0.188.
Skype developers are <a href="" rel="nofollow">unable to do anything about it</a> and Phillips wont update their driver (Quote "... no more development/fixes are being incorporated into the VOIP321.EXE file"). Phillips would probably rather sell you a newer bit of hardware.
Don't waste your time on Phillips Skype phone devices, as their driver support is lacking when Skype is updated, so you buy a product for a few hundred dollars and it becomes useless 12 months later.
Another reason to not purchase the Phillips Skype phones is that it is Windows Only. No Mac or Linux support or drivers offered.

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.

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.

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.
