Question about Lands Phones
I've recently purchased a Siemens Gigaset S450IP phone (UK) The phone works fine as a normal house phone, but I have been unable to get it to connect to the server. I followed all instructions on setup and checked settings on router, but to no avail. After days of trying and getting my son, who works with computers, to try and sort the problem, we came to the decision that the base station must be faulty or there was a problem with the firmware. Unfortunately as I can't connect to the server, I can't update firmware. Thinking it might be a problem with the base station I obtained a replacement phone. However the replacement has the same problem.
My router (safecom SWART2-54125) appears to be working and registers the IP address of the phone, but if I do a ping test it is inconsisent and rarely goes through without dropping packets. Even thought the router is obviously assigning the phone with an IP address I cannot access settings through the web browser as the manual says. I am getting messages on the phone saying, "Provider registration failed", "cannot access server" and "check IP settings". We have altered settings on the router to see if it makes any difference, but doesn't. I've changed settings to static IP address, have tried resetting the base station, handset and router. Thinking it could be a connection problem, I changed the ethernet cable. None of these made any difference. I'm at a loss and wondering if it is something to do with the settings, or a problem with either the router or the phone. HELP

wonderful! that's always a good thing to hear - sometimes it is the "make sure you're power cord is plugged in" problem, eh :)

If you had a storm, and the only handset that works shows line in use, then your base has gone bad and needs repair. The reason the phones are flashing base 1 or something to that effect is because they don't see the base anymore, which typically means no phones will see your base, so its odd that one phone is actually seeing the base. Either way, you can try re-registering the phones to the base, but if you get the line in use after they register (if they will register), then your base is bad. If they won't register, your base is bad. For additional assistance you can go to www.cordlessrepair.com

If you're trying to get 5 handsets to work with one base, it won't work. The 4215 can only handle 4 handsets, the base handset plus 3.
When I had to replace the base of my 4 handset system, the base handset still worked. Therefore I had an extra handset which couldn't be used. So I decided to buy another base. Now I have 6 handsets which can be grouped 4,2 or 3,3.

I had the same problem. I set up a static address instead and it works very well. I just copied the details form my laptop, diabled the laptop and set up the phone with the same details as I had on my laptop. Once I start the laptop again, it will get another address. --Jonas
