Use Computer As VOIP phone

i have two VOIP phones connected to router and to modem.
Instead of those two CISCO VOIP Phones, i would like to use computer as VOIP Phone, because it would have much more functions.

I connected my computer to router (where other VOIP phones are connected), i downloaded few different VOIP softwares, but i am unable to register it to work. All softwares ask to enter domain, account name and password.  But I checked configuration of CISCO phones (model SPA502G) and i don’t see that there are password set.
When i click, LOGIN, with WireShark i see that status is Registering SIP, it tries 10 times, and then i get message, that it is unable to connect.

Any ideas? What password should i enter, what account name? I tried to use Account Name “testing”, and also tried name of one of the phones.

Thank you

Ask your VoIP administrator about the username and password.

Yes. I called to my VoIP provider. And they told me that every phone need to be registered. They all have username and passwords. And they will provide me with that information.
