How To Enable and Configure Wi-Fi Settings on the Cisco SPA 525G2 Desk Phone

How to set up the WiFi settings for Cisco SPA525G:

 

The Cisco SPA525G allows for both a wired and wireless connection.

 

NOTE: You will not be able to setup WiFi while the Ethernet cable is still connected to the back of the phone. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the SW port on the back of the phone before proceeding with the instructions below.

 

NOTE: Depending on the security mode and cypher type you selected previously during the setup process, the field where you will enter the key for your WiFi network may be labeled differently. As an example, for WPA2 Personal, with AES COMP encryption, this will say WPA Shared Key.
