Setting the IP address of the base station in LAN
An IP address is required in order for the LAN to "recognise" your phone. The IP address can be
assigned to the phone automatically (by the router) or manually.
•If the address is assigned dynamically the router's DHCP server automatically assigns an IP
address to the phone. The IP address can be changed according to router settings.
•In the case of manual/static assignment, you assign a static IP address to the phone. This may
be necessary depending on your network configuration (e.g. if your phone is connected
directly to a PC).
Your base station is connected to a router or a PC.
To assign the IP address dynamically, the DHCP server on the router must be activated.
Please also read the user guide for your router.

IP address here. The router forwards phone address requests to its
