I'm new to forums and pretty new to voip as well.
Im looking to get signed up with voipfone, but before I do I want to try and make sure the hardware i've got is going to work.
I've been given a cisco 7911, bit tatty but been told it works fine.
From the reading of the forums i've done already, it would seem I need to update the SIP firmware on it, but im unsure if the one in the thread for the 79xx phones will be compatible. It only seems to make reference to the 7940 and 7960?
Am I right in assuming, if I get the SIP upgrade wrong, I'll turn the phone into a doorstop?
I am about to download the Solarwinds TFTP application, but im not quite sure whether I need to use the Serial-RJ45 cable I have, or a corssover cat5 cable?
If anyone could give me a few pointers i'd be very grateful.
PS - This is an incredible resource of information! Found out more here in a few hours than I have after trawling the net for days!
