How do I set a Static IP address on a Panasonic KT-UT123B phone?

Note: This guide is only compatible with the Panasonic KT-UT123B phones and additional Panasonic KT-UTXXX devices.

The first step when assigning a Static IP address to anything is to gather the information specific for the network it will be connecting to.

The information needed is as follows.

  • IP address the device will be assigned (ie. 192.168.X.X)
  • Subnet Mask (ie. 255.255.255.X)
  • Default Gateway/Routers IP address (ie. 192.168.X.X)
  • DNS Servers (Nextiva recommends using Google’s DNS: 8.8.8.8 & 4.2.2.2)
  • Once we have the IP address information it’s time to input it into the Phone.Unplug and plug the power to the Panasonic phone. During the boot-up process press the Setup button before it completes.

    Once inside the Setup menu, use the directional pad to highlight the Network Settings option. With the Network Settings option highlighted press the Enter button on the screen or the center of the directional pad.

    After selecting the Network Settings option successfully, there should be a new list of available options. Network should be the first option on this list and should already be highlighted. Simply press Enter like in the previous steps.

    After successfully selecting the Network option, you should be directed to a new list of options. Using the directional pad, scroll down and highlight the STATIC option on the screen. Once highlighted press the Enter button again.

    Once inside the STATIC menu it will ask you to input the static IP address gathered at the beginning of this guide. The phone requires you to use 3 digits for each part of the static IP address you are entering. This means if you have the IP address of 192.168.1.5, you need to enter it into the Panasonic as 192.168.001.005.

    Once the static IP address has been entered in correctly, use the directional pad to scroll down. If this is done correctly the phone should display Subnet Mask.

    Follow the same steps as entering the static IP address. Repeat this for the Default Gateway and DNS Servers. Once all the static IP address information is entered in correctly press the Enter button. Reboot the phone, and it will boot back up using the programmed static IP address.
