Configuring a Yealink WF40 Wi-Fi Adapter to Work with a Yealink Phone

To configure your Yealink WF40 Wi-Fi adapter to work with your Yealink phone, you will need to reset the phone to the factory default settings, upload the firmware for the adapter, and then provision the phone back to 8x8 servers.

The device web interface (GUI) allows you make changes to the phone's settings via a web browser on your computer, which can often be more convenient than on the phone screen itself. You must ensure that:

  • The phone is plugged into the network.
  • The computer is on the same network as the phone.

To reset the phone to factory defaults through the phone's web GUI

  1. Locate the phone's IP address by going to Menu > Status > IPv4 on the phone.
  2. In a web browser on a computer on the same network as the phone, browse to the phone's IP address.
  3. Log in as admin and enter the phone's MAC password.

To upload the firmware for the Wi-Fi Adapter

  1. Download firmware.

To provision the phone back to 8x8

  2. Log in as admin and enter the password admin.
  3. Navigate to Settings > Auto Provision.
