Updating the phone firmware
The firmware update is downloaded directly from the Internet by default. The relevant web page
is preconfigured in your phone.

e.g. in order to enter it in the router's access control list.

The firmware update can take up to 6 minutes, depending on the quality of your DSL
When updating from the Internet, checks are made to ensure that no newer version of
the firmware exists. If this is not the case, the operation is terminated and a message is
issued to that effect.
If the telephone is not connected to the Internet at the time when the check for new
firmware is due to be performed (e.g. because the router is deactivated), the check is
performed as soon as the phone is reconnected to the Internet.
You can deactivate the automatic version check via the Web configurator.
