NOTE: The INTERNET/WAN connection on the wrp200 will be assigned an IP address. For optimal VoIP performance this ETHERNET/WAN IP should be a public IP address.

Preparation

Before you setup your VoIP phone you will need to make sure you are connected to the Internet. Make sure you can browse http://www.freespeech.ie with a PC connected to the router. See the user manual for details.

Logging On

To configure the VoIP phone lines you will need to login to the router.

IMPORTANT: The WRP200 has a hidden page for configuring the VoIP settings, you will need to type this link exactly (type sensitive) except the IP address (default 192.168.15.1) which you may have configured differently.

IMPORTANT: Don't forget to click "Save Settings" when you are done.

Checking you are online

The device will reboot, you can then check the configuration worked by looking at the registration status (The LED for "phone 1" on the front of the router should also be green).

Making A Call

Once a phone is plugged into the phone socket 1 on the router and the LINE1 is online you can pick up the receiver and make calls, just like a regular phone.

Your first call should be an echo test - Dial 1742

TIP: Add a hash (#) at the end to speed up dialing. example 1742#

Troubleshooting

Before you start troubleshooting, make sure your router is connected to the Internet (can browse web pages).

Can't get the phone to Online/Register

Check all the settings are correct and double check your password. The password is NOT the same as your web login password. You can see the password for each VoIP line by logging in to the freespeech portal and select Services > 076XXXXXX from the top menu, then check the VoIP Details page.

Audio Problems

If you have problems like 'one way audio' or 'no audio' then you probably have a NAT/Firewall causing problems

Set the WRP200 to use Symmetric RTP

Login to your device and go to the SIP menu (don't forget to save settings). Set Send Resp to Src Port: = YES
