issues with WET610N wireless bridge and 3COM ip Phones.
Posted on 2010-09-01
we bought a couple of WET610N bridges in order to connect two 3COM IP Phones, the NBX is quite old and we are not able to get the phones to work.
The phone is able to connect to the NBX and it downloads the firmware but hungs after it with the message "Wait for NCP", if we check the NBX, it sees the phone "online" but the phone is not able to make/receive calls.
we have other phones connected wirelessly but using SILEX bridges which have some glitches also so we decided to try with these linksys.
Seems that the problem is that the phones register at layer 2, and the bridge sends its MAC address instead of the phone's MAC so the NBX does not registers the correct MAC address.
do you know any workaround to get it working?
we have tried several configurations with no luck.
* Model for Phone System: 3Com NBX 100
NBX® Version R6_0_59
Thank you in advance.
