vvx500 stopped working, no DHCP found

I have used a VVX500 for over a year without problems.  On Friday the system stopped having sound in nor out, but I could hear the phone ring inbound and outbound.  However, as soon as either end would answer, the line would go dead.  During this time I could see my menu of extensions from my home office, so there was connectivity.  Charter/Spectrum told me to switch my router (from the NetGear) to a new unit.  (currently have a Sagemcom router hooked up.)  But now I cannot even pull up my menu from my home office.  There is NO connectivity.  No DHCP is found.  Help!??!?

Hello @zak61107,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

This is a Network issue so please work with your network provider and ensure that the router being used has a DHCP Server capability.


Also restart the phone after changing the router.
