Unrequested assistance

Note to self: If just before that pre-dinner nap, your spouse says, "I couldn't make out how my computer is hooked to your network," and later that evening your brand new IP phone consistently resets after two seconds of connect time, complaining about a lack of IP address, it should set off alarm bells in your head!

Note to everyone else: The Grandstream Budgetone 102 will do that if _SOMEONE_ (*ahem*) plugs the cable into the "PC" port vice the "LAN" port.

I refuse to ask how she thought that her computer was plugged into the phone (okay, maybe the _do_ both have blue cables) but I refuse to feel guilty that it took 15+ minutes to find that (yeah, I'm taking fire from that). I'll probably have to tell the story about taking her shopping for a laptop, and getting a red one, at the next social function, just to get even. (heh)
