Hi rajahc,

If that is the later version on PAP2 with the reset button on it, I'm afraid there's no way to fully lock it out, but if that is the earlier version without the reset button, there is a way to fully lock the unit from both web and IVR access, however you would need the so called SPC tool, this small software will enable you to generate the generic configuration file for the PAP2 so could you modify it, re-compile and upload it back to the unit via a tftp server. Its not an easy feat not to mention that those SPC tools are only issued to a few selected Linksys partners. Hope this helps

Cheers and best regards,

P.S. pls rate me, tnx.

    I have an unsecured router ,linksys wireless-g 2.4 ghz broadband router,need password and username to secure it.

    There is no need to ask for a username or password. Just log in the settings' page for your Linksys with your browser (typically it's, provide the username and password to connect with the router and make the settings you like for the Wi-Fi name at WLAN SSID section and the password you like at the security section. At the end hit apply (or save). I advice you to make all these settings while you are connected with an ethernet cable at your Linksys, to avoid being locked out in case of a problem.

    In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

    Fax solution


    First check with your voip service provider that they supports T.38 over SIP.

    For sending fax you have to enable T.38 (fax protocoll) support in the pap2 webui.

    On your fax machine set data speed to 14.400 kb.

    But anyway T.38 (fax) over voip is not a waterproof solution, it can only guarantee delivery for about 85 to 95 % of sent\ recived fax's.
    Make shure you have a good, fast and stable connection (try pinging the sip server ip). If it doesnt try another fax machine (f.ex Brother or xerox). If that dosent work, and you still have to get a fax service, try a online fax to mail, mail to fax solution (search google).

    I can provide more detailed information and how to's if needed.

    I have a linksys PAP2-NA VoIP adapter. I want to lend to my customers but want to lock the access to admin so they cannot see my settings

    Hi rajahc,

    That's easy (as long as your voip provider didn't locked it themselves), just log-in to your PAP2's setup page and set the user and or admin password under the system tab. Hope this helps
