How to configure Grandstream GPX2140 phone

Grandstream1

  1. Connect the phone properly. Make sure the phone is connected securely to your router or switch. Be sure that all cables are snug and properly inserted to the correct ports on all phones. You will also need to make sure that you have a computer that can access the same router that the phone is plugged into, which will be used later in this tutorial.
  2. You will also need the MAC address that is labeled on the bottom of the phone. It is usually 12 characters in length and made up of numbers and letters. Please be sure not to confuse the mac address with the serial number, they can look similar sometimes.
  3. Make sure the phone is set to factory defaults. If you purchased your phone from a second hand retail service such as Ebay.com, or from another owner. It is likely that the phone may have been configured for another VOIP provider. To initiate a factory reset on your Grandstream GPX2140 phone, you will need to press the menu button on the phone.
