Configuring the S685IP / A580IP / N300A
If there are problems in setting up the S685IP it is easiest to start from a factory reset condition. This can be achieved by holding the blue button on the front of the base unit while power cycling it. After this the handset will need to be re-registered with the base unit (hold the blue button on the base unit while power cycling the handset). The pin should be changed from its default value of 0000 using the handset.
Starting from a factory reset, the following items need to be set using the web server in the base unit.
By default the base unit picks up an ip address using DHCP. This can be over-ridden by connecting to "Settings -> IP Configuration", selecting "Static" and filling in the address details as required. Then click on the "Set" button.
In menu "Settings -> Telephony -> Audio" select "Voice Quality - Own Codec preference". For "IP1" remove all codecs except "G.711 a law". This setting will generally give the best audio quality.
If there are problems with recognition of dtmf tones by other systems consider setting "RFC2833" in the "Settings -> Telephony -> Advanced Settings" menu. Avoid using "Audio".
Check that the Number Plan is set to use the VoIP rather than the fixed (pstn) line.
If you're behind NAT, then you'll need Support to set your number to the old legacy 'Asterisk' server and use the server/proxy etc as a.speechless.aaisp.net.uk - Don't set the stun server though.
