Hi. 

I am having some ongoing issues with my second SPA2102.

Any time I make changes to the configuration, the IP Config reverts from assigned IP to DHCP.

It also sets a password which I don't know so I need to reset it and reprovision it.

I had the device replaced thinking it was a fault but the second one is doing it again.

1st one doesn't do a thing, works perfectly.

Also strangely, I am using the passthrough function (Lan in Bridge Mode and Wan enabled with the IP I assigned) and for some reason the second WAP I have connected, is handing out IP's on a different network (In the same range). DHCP is turned OFF on both devices. Only my Lan Router is giving out IP's.

Very frustrating.

I have factory reset and refirmwared and re provisioned so many times now!

Anyone able to shed some light?

Do you turn the provisioning settings off after you've set it up so that it won't change it self?

Sounds to me like there's a tftp or http server in the network somewhere that's feeding it settings.

Have you tried out the new SPA122? ;)

No I auto provision once I set the lan settings and away I go. Both devices are configured automatically.

Where do I change the settings to autoprovision?

I haven't personally seen the SPA122 but unless 2talk support autoprovision I wouldn't consider it.  

It is at all possible the auto provision sets a password that only 2talk know?

I think you might have missed the ;) re the 122 - it's got issues... :) I'm running beta firmware and I'm still finding bugs, so I wouldn't touch that till it gets sorted, which it will :)

As for the 2102, Log in admin, advanced, --> Prov tab, then just set no to the top two questions re prov, update and it should stop changing on you, it will mean 2Talk can't reprov it, but once it's set I really don't see why you'd worry.

HTH.

Yes. And it's also possible that the provisioning is overwriting your network settings which is why they keep changing.

Yes the 2talk provisioning does set an admin password and it is your account number as explained in the 
instructions, once it is provisioned you may need to deactivate auto provisioning if you want to change to some custom settings. 




Now on 2talk Network and it's better.

Take out the line you put in to provision it in the first place.

As Sbiddle said on the provisioning tab in your spa2102.
The instructions are in the provisioning section in 2talk live, just click on the link...... there are pictures and everything.

He probably didn't put a line in the provisioning tab.
The 2talk provisioning does that automatically, all he needs to do is put the MAC and local IP address in 2talk live provisioning and push go, very clever 2talk hokus pokus stuff.:)

Correct. I just did the autoprovision. I am wondering though, both my SPA's were provisioned identically albiet with different lines and mac address and iP's specified, so I can't understand why one does this and the other doesn't.

Can't answer that, don't even know quite how it works the way it does but it does work very well.
Maybe a question for 2talk, but the simplest way to stop any control from 2talk is to turn off auto provisioning on the spa and if you still have problems there might be some other issue.

Seems better since I managed to log in, very frustrating issue, but seems resolved now. I am still wondering why the other device didn't do the same thing!

2talk auto-provisioning will overwrite network settings etc. to our default template with routing enabled, DHCP etc.  If you want to take advantage of 2talk provisioning but then change to your own preferred network settings or tweaks to the default config then following the provisioning process, then go into the Provisioning tab and disable provisioning (or remove the URI and save) then the device won't try to download it's config again and you can tweak the settings with your own preferences after that (i.e. bridge mode etc.)
