How to Set a Static IP on Polycom IP 335 or 550 Phones


Note: We highly recommend consulting an IT or network professional when configuring advanced network settings. If able, the network administrator should always check the IP address, and assign and log any static IP to avoid conflicts in the future.


Switching a phone from DHCP to a static IP can be a useful way to address connectivity issues like URL call is disabled errors. It may also alleviate some (but not all) call quality issues.
