Default Connecting SPA2102 to D-link router

I have been using my Linksys SPA2102 on my 2mb cable connection for
almost 2 years without a problem. Really like the way it can be
configured to produce UK tones etc.

I have recently upgraded my connection to 10mb, but since doing so I
have discovered that the SPA reduces my connection speed down to a max
7.5mb. Searching the net has proven that other users have the same issue
with this unit.

I have now bought a D-Link DIR-635 router with QOS. I am trying to
connect the 2102 to act as an adaptor rather than a router, but whatever
settings I try I cannot get the D-Link to see the SPA.
I have switched off the router in the SPA and also set it to Bridge mode
rather than NAT. I have applied port forwarding in the D-Link as listed
in the set up instructions for the Linksys PAP2 but that has made no
difference.

Anyone have any suggestions or should I give up and buy a PAP2?

These instructions should help you configure the SPA appropriately,
even though they're written with the SPA3102 in mind

<http://www.provu.co.uk/support_SPA-3102_SPA-3000.html>

The SPA & PAP2 are, for all intents & purposes, identical.

With the exception of the router element of the SPA, of course...

Thanks for that. Router still can't see the SPA. :-(

Actually the PAP2 is the equivalent of the SPA2000 not the 3102. It
doesn't have a PSTN port but two independent phone ports.

I know. See my follow up.....and I think you meant the 2102, not the
3102...

The point is, he can make his 2102 virtually the same as a 2000 which
is equivalent to a PAP2. No?

I'm not seeing your reply....It looks like Ivor replied to me, for some
reason.

Anyway, how are you testing whether the router can see the SPA?

Have you set the SPA to pick up an IP address by the D-Link's DHCP?

Which RJ45 socket on the SPA is connected to the D-Link?

Have you done a reset? Always worth it.

Connect the SPA using its "outside" interface, as if the D-Link is
its ISP. Works a treat, here. Come back to me if you can't get it to
work using the suggestions elsewhere in the thread.

Well the link quoted refers to the 3000/3102.

Indeed.

The connection light on the router for the SPA does not light up and the
SPA fails to connect.


> Have you set the SPA to pick up an IP address by the D-Link's DHCP?


Not sure. Which setting do I change for this?


> Which RJ45 socket on the SPA is connected to the D-Link?


The first one next to the power input point. Coloured blue marked Internet.


> Have you done a reset? Always worth it.



Many times.

I'd do a factory reset from the IVR, plug it in to the D-Link as if the
D-Link were the ISP (as suggested by Chris) and double check the cables
are sound.

Thanks for everyone's help, turned out the cable that came with the
D-Link was not good!
