Overview of the Cisco SPA 525G IP Phone
The Cisco SPA 525G IP Phone is a full-featured VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol)
phone that provide voice communication over an IP network. It provides traditional
features, such as call forwarding, redialing, speed dialing, transferring calls,
conference calling and accessing voice mail. Calls can be made or received with a
handset, headset or speaker.
The Cisco SPA 525G phone is connected to the network through its Ethernet
connection or the built-in Wireless-G connection. If you are using the Wireless-G
connection, a separate power adapter (PA-100) is required. The Cisco SPA 525G
provides an additional Ethernet port that allows a computer to be connected to the
network through the IP phone. (This option is only available when phone is
connected to the network via the wired Ethernet connection).
Unlike traditional phones, the Cisco SPA 525G requires a separate power source.
Either connect your phone to an Ethernet switch that provides Power over Ethernet
(PoE), or use a separate power adapter (PA-100).

If you are using an external power source, plug it into the building’s power source,
and plug the power supply into the phone base. See Figure 1 on page 22, item #2.
NOTE: The Cisco SPA 525G does not ship
with a power supply. If you are not using Power
over Ethernet (PoE), you must order the PA-100
power supply separately from Cisco.
If you are using Power over Ethernet (PoE) to power the phone, the phone will
receive power when you connect an Ethernet cable from the phone’s WAN port to
a switch in your network that provides PoE. See the ”Connecting Your Phone to the
Wired Network” section on page 27.

Connecting Your Phone to the Computer Network
2
The Cisco SPA 525G phone supports a direct connection to the wireless network.
Before setting up the wireless network, you need to know the wireless security
type for your router. The Cisco SPA 525G works with the following security types:
•
WEP—Wired Equivalent Privacy. With this type of security, you need to
enter a 64 or 128-bit key on the phone (or a more easily remembered
passphrase to generate the key). The phone then authenticates with your
router to provide a secure connection.
•
WPA—Wi-Fi Protected Access. The Cisco SPA 525G supports WPA PSK,
WPA2 PSK, WPA Enterprise, and WPA2 Enterprise. With this type of
security, you will at the very minimum be required to enter a password on
the phone. The phone then authenticates with your router to provide a
secure connection.
Determining Your Wireless Router Security Type
If you do not know your wireless router security type, you need to log in to the
router interface to get this information. The steps below are written for a Linksys
router, but procedures for other routers should be similar.
STEP 1
Log in to your wireless router’s web interface using a web browser. Your computer
must be connected to your wireless network. Enter the IP address of the wireless
router in the browser toolbar.
STEP 2
If required, enter the user name and password. (By default, Linksys routers
typically use “admin” for the user name and “admin” for the password.)
STEP 3
View the Wireless tab or window. Note the network name (SSID) and the type of
security (WEP, WPA Personal, or WPA2 Personal).
If your router is using WEP, note the following:
•
WEP encryption: 64 bit or 128 bit. You need to choose this later.
•
Default transmit key, or TX key: The default key (of the 4) that the router
transmits to authenticate. This value will be 1, 2, 3, or 4.
•
Passphrase and keys: You choose one of two methods to enter the WEP
key. You either directly enter the WEP key, or enter a more simple
passphrase to generate the WEP key.

Verifying Phone Startup
After receiving power and network connectivity, the phone executes a boot-up
sequence. During this sequence, the display shows the Cisco logo. All of the lights
on the phone will flash. After the sequence, which should take about five seconds,
the phone will display the standard menu for the phone. The date, name and
number of the phone appear on the top line of the LCD screen. At the bottom of the
LCD screen, softkeys appear over their associated soft buttons.
If the phone does not display this screen, confirm your installation and
connections. If these are correct, try unplugging the phone and plugging it back in
again. If you still don’t see the display, then contact your Phone Administrator or
Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP).
Upgrading Your Phone’s Firmware
Your phone ships with pre-installed firmware. However, later firmware versions
may be available that add features and fix problems with your phone. You may
need to upgrade your phone to the latest firmware for ideal performance.
!
IMPORTANT: If you are using your phone with
an Internet Telephony Service Provider’s
system, do not upgrade your phone’s firmware
without consulting your service provider. Your
provider may automatically upgrade your
phones without any action on your part
necessary.
