Are you using this ip phone as your computers internet switch?is your internet cat-5 cable going straight into the ip phone, then another from the ip phone to the computer to supply the internet? if so whoever ran the lines for the ip phone did it wrong. the tech should have run a seperate cable for the ip phone, and plugged the other end into a 4, 8, 24 port switch. he also should have run another seperate line to your computer for your internet, and had the other end plugged into the same switch. apparently he was too lazy. the ip phone is not meant to be a switch. the person who made the ip phone figured you would use ither the internet or the phone, not both at the same time. have a seperate line run to your ip phones and you will never have this problem again.

How to fix Polycom soundpoint IP 335 with surge damage

The IP 335 is an entry level phone so it is doubtful that there would be anything like a fuse in it. From what you've described here I would say the phone is fried. Moving forward I would recommend to always keep your important electronics on a good quality surge suppressor and/or a UPS. Good luck.

What is the default password for Polycom Soundpoint IP 320 SIP?

Default Passwords:
To get into the web interface, the default username/password is "Polycom"/"456" (Note that this does not work with Safari 1.2.2.)
To get into the Admin interface on the hard phone, the password is "456". (Prior to v1.3.1, the web interfaces to the phone uses "Polycom"/"SpIp" as the username/password.)
The "user password" (not used much) defaults to "123".

To reset a lost admin password to default: at phone boot, during the 5 second countdown, push/hold 468* on the phone. Enter the phone's MAC address as the password. This will reset network info but keep peers loaded. Tested on Soundpoint IP 650.

I am unable to push the configuration files into polycom soundpoint ip 330 through tftpd

This means the phone's SIP application has been erased. You will need to download the SIP app and BootROM from the Polycom support page, host the files on a boot server, and then point the phone to this server from the server menu so the phone will reboot and download the files.
