My SPA2102 died today - reports its IP address as 0.0.0.0 and nothing I can do will change it, maybe its toast.

Pulled out a PAP2-TA I had lying around and the original provider has put a password on it so that's useless unless anyone knows how to reset them or what the passwords used by the various NZ VoIP providers are likely to be... I think it came from Worldnet from memory.

I've got an SPA8000 here but plugged that in and its too noisy for our quiet office. I also tried an old Grandstream HandyTone 486, but I couldn't easily connect to it so I gave up.

Anyway I've had a look around and like the look of the SRP527, its a DSL modem, 4 port switch with two VoIP ports. Can anyone recommend this model or suggest alternatives?

Further research into the SRP527 shows that I can plug in my old Vodem and use it as a fail-over should the DSL go down... add this to the wish list...

SPA8000 should offer identical call quality to the SPA2102. If it's not you've got it configured incorrectly.

I've got an SRP521 (ethernet only version of the 527). They're a brilliant device but just make sure to check the USB device support if you plan on buying it for this feature, not every stick will work.

By noisy I meant fan noise from the device itself, I'm sure the talk quality is fine on the SPA8000.

I checked the compatibility guides and the E220 is supported, so that's a nice feature for Vodafone Vodem owners like me.

This may help with your reset - remember to disconnect it from the internet before you try....

You shuld be able to reset your PAP2 to factory default, but try your original internet password or the MAC address written on the device if you cant find the password. Maybe you can call up worldnet and ask them what it was.
