DHCP is the function by which your router assigns IP addresses to devices in your network. If your phone or other network devices are unable to receive an IP address, DHCP may not be enabled. Consult your router's documentation for steps on ensuring DHCP is turned on.
Upon powering up or restarting your Aastra IP phone, while loading, it becomes stuck at 20%.
This usually indicates that the phone is unable to receive an IP address. It may also be resolvable by erasing and redownloading the phone's config file.
Setting a static IP address on your phone makes it less reliant on your router's DHCP settings and ensures that the phone retains an exclusive network address.
