How do I initiate a manual firmware upgrade on the Siemens Gigaset C460IP/450IP
Find the IP address of the base station:
First we must find the IP address of the web configuration utility on the Gigaset base station. Do this by picking up the phone and going to:
Menu→Settings→Base→Local Network→(enter your system pin – default is 0000)→IP Address.
Note down the number listed under IP Address, removing any leading zeros – e.g. if the display reads 192.168.001.086, note down 192.168.1.86. This is the address we need to type in to a web browser in the next step
Logging in to the configuration utility:
Type the noted address into a web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) You should be presented with this page:
Type in your system pin in the appropriate box (default = 0000).
Click Settings, then Miscellaneous. Here’s what you should be looking at now:
Click the Update Firmware button, and your Gigaset will go off and find any updates it can.
If updates are found, the Gigaset will download them, and may need to restart. This is normal. Your handset will let you know when it’s back up and running.
