IP1202 uses a 3 color LED and uses instead of green on the other gateway blue. When the firmware is running some more states are signaled with the LED:

  • LED blink fast red until ethernet link up
  • LED blink fast blue until Air Sync established
  • LED constant blue if Air Sync OK


On the gateway the reset button is a dedicated button. On the phones one of the keys functions during poweron as reset button. During normal operation the key works not as reset button. That means to activate the reset you need to poweron the phone (or trigger a reset on the webinterface) while pressing the phones reset key.
