IMPORTANT: Always confirm you are connected to the Internet before trying to setup
your phone. An easy way to do this is visit a public web page from a PC
connected to LAN connector on your Adaptor (like http://www.freespeech.ie).
To log on to the Adaptor you will need to connect a PC to the LAN interface. Connect to the web configuration page by typing http://192.168.2.1 (default url) into your browser navigation bar.
Configuring Freespeech account
The Gate 102 has a built in router, it is recommended you do not
cascade it behind another router (ie. do not connect the WAN port into
a router). This will ensure you have minimal call connection problems
and get the best quality for your calls.
After logging in to your adaptor select SUPER OPTIONS > SIP Settings from the menu. Fill in the following details where 0844XXXXXX is your freespeech username/phone number. Make sure you click "SaveSet" at the bottom of the page after changes.
In SUPER OPTIONS > Audio Settings - set your preferred codec to G729, this is the best compromise between speech quality and low bandwidth.
Check you are online
you have problems you may be behind a NAT (router) without knowing it.
As we said above it's best not to connect this device behind a router.
If you have problems getting the device online, incoming calls or
silent calls you can try activating STUN in SUPER OPTIONS > SIP Settings as follows.
