NOTE: Please refer to the new guide on the following page when setting up your phone - http://soho66.co.uk/9666.../1/Hardware-Phones.aspx

Setting up the Siemens Gigaset range of phones is relatively simple, and should take no longer than 5 - 10 minutes. To configure the phone, use these instructions below.

Firstly, you will need to find out the IP address for your phone. To do this:

  • Press the Menu button on your handset
  • Go to following menus - Settings > Base > Local Network and enter your system pin*
  • Scroll to "IP Address" and make a note of the number on screen. This will be presented in a similar way to "192.168.001.063". In each portion of this number, remove any leading zeros so, in the example above, the IP address will be 192.168.1.63.

    Now, you will need to login to the phone's "Web Configurator". To do this:

  • Open your regular web browser (Internet Explorer / Firefox / Safari) and, delete EVERYTHING in the address bar and, type the IP address you discovered previously, and press enter.
  • On the Gigaset login screen, enter your system pin*
  • From the top menu, click Settings
  • From the left menu, click Telephony, then Connections
  • In the main area of the screen, you will see 6 numbered VoIP profiles. Click "Edit" next to the profile that you wish to use for Soho66. On a new phone, this will be profile #1
  • On the settings screen, click the option to select a VoIP provider. Choose "Great Britain" from the country list, then Soho66 for the provider.
  • Back on the settings screen, under the "Personal Provider Data" area, fill in the following:
  • Username: VoIP Username**
  • Authentication Name: VoIP Username**
  • Authentication Password: VoIP Password**
  • Click the Set button

    There are also some issues with Siemens Handsets in that DTMF tones are not recognised. To resolve this:

  • From the top menu, click Settings
  • From the left menu, click Telephony, then Advanced Settings
  • Under the area "DTMF over VoIP", take the tick out of all three options, then put a tick in "RFC 2833"
  • Click the Set button

    * The default System Pin is 0000

    ** The VoIP Username and VoIP Password is available on the settings for your number. When logged into Soho66, click "My Services", then "My Numbers" and then on your telephone number.

    After changing this setting, Click the Logout option on the Gigaset Web Configurator.
