The D-Link Response Point

I have noticed something that is glaringly missing from this kit. POE. All devices have power cords so keep that in mind when you install it. I would recommend a small UPS for each desk. Otherwise your phones go dead when the power is out. I think that the addition of POE would make this a much better kit as you would need fewer UPS units and fewer cords at the desktops. Moving on…

After looking at the system I am wondering how necessary the switch will be. The Router has an 8 port on it and should handle a small phone system fine. We shall see.

I am going to set the system with just the Router (Left), Phone System (right), and one Phone (center). I will also connect my laptop to the setup to run the CD that came with the system.

I am still very pleased with the exceedingly small size of this system!

To get the unit going I powered up the router for IP, the phone system, and then a phone. So far it is very plug and play. The phone, phone system, and my laptop pulled an IP with no issues. All of the devices came with a short cat 5 cable. I am a little concerned the length of these as they appear to be about 4 ft long. I have a hard time getting a 7 ft cable to be long enough on most installs. I would recommend purchasing a 7ft plus cable for each phone before you install this.
