3. Connecting to a Wireless Network
Your F3000 WiFi phone has been preconfigured to provide VoIP
phone service via any available open wireless Access Point (AP)
connected to the Internet. If you want to use a specific AP or
your AP is protected by encrypted access, refer to Section 3.2.
3.1 Connecting to Open Access Points
When you turn on the F3000, it searches for available APs,
selects the AP with the best signal and attempts to connect
to it. You will see the message "Connecting to APname"
while the phone is attempting to connect.
Note: If there are new configuration and software updates available,
when the F3000 has successfully connected to an AP, it will need to
be provisioned. Please refer to Section 4.
Once connected (and provisioned
when necessary), you will see the
message "Registering via APname".
When the right soft key function
displaying Names in standby mode,
you are ready to make and receive
calls.

3.2 Connecting to Protected or Specific Access
Points
Before connecting to a protected or specific AP, you must
define it to the F3000. You can define a maximum of four
APs. Typically you would define frequently used APs such
as that of your home router. Defined APs can be open
(available for use by anyone) or protected (available for use
by authorized users only).
Protected APs require use of an encryption code for
access. The F3000 supports WEP and WPA-PSK
encryption codes. If your home wireless router was installed
with a WEP or WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key), use it when
defining the SSID to your F3000. If you are defining a
corporate AP, obtain the WEP or WPA-PSK from the AP
administrator.
Once APs are saved, the F3000 first tries to connect to one
of the defined APs and if none are available, it looks for an
open AP to use for your call.
You will see the message "Connecting to APname" while
the phone is attempting to connect.
Note: If there are new configuration and software updates available,
Note: If the WiFi phone cannot connect to an AP, it will keep
searching and wear down your battery. Verify open AP availability. If
not found, turn off the phone until you are within range of an Access
Point.
when the F3000 has successfully connected to an AP, it will need to
be provisioned. Please refer to Section 4.
