Acanac Home Phone ATA Update Procedure

We continue to improve Acanac network performance and operations, with a focus on optimizing our customers’ experience.  If you received an email, voice mail and/or call from Acanac, you are required to perform a simple update to the settings for your Analog Telephone Adaptor (ATA) to ensure connectivity and avoid any service interruption.

Please follow the simple instructions provided below to update your ATA.  There are 3 fields in your ATA set up menu that will need to be updated with the same information.

If you experience any issues completing this process, please feel free to call and speak with our Technical Support Specialists at 1-866-281-3538 between 9:00am and midnight, Monday through Friday.

Option 1: Automatic update

Simply connect your ATA to your computer and click the appropriate link below for an automatic update. This solution will also ensure any future updates are also completed automatically. Should you be unable to connect using link, or have an unsupported ATA that cannot be updated automatically, we have also provided step by step instructions to help you complete this process manually (Option 2 below).

Setup

First, please make sure your ATA is connected to your modem and your computer network is setup as per the diagram below.

  • Your modem should be connected to the cable or DSL line as usual, then connected from one of the modem LAN ports to the Internet port on the ATA.
  • From the Ethernet port on the ATA, connect to an Ethernet port on your computer.

 

This option is the preferred method for updating your ATA as it will complete the process automatically and ensure that your ATA is set to receive future updates automatically.

  1. Your ATA must be connected to both the Internet and a computer as per the setup diagram
  2. Log into your ATA using the admin credentials:
    1. Username: admin
    2. Default Password: admin (Note: if you have changed the admin password please use the password you chose)
  3. Click the link below that corresponds to the ATA model you are using.
    1. SPA122: http://192.168.15.1/admin/resync?https://prov3.distributel.net/aca_staging_122spa.cfg
    2. SPA2012: http://192.168.0.1/admin/resync?https://prov.distributel.net/aca_staging_spa2102.cfg

Please note that if you are not using the Linksys SPA 122 or Linksys SPA 2102 provided by Acanac, you will need to manually log into your ATA and update the appropriate fields as per the User Guide associated with your equipment. If a manual update is required, the information below in Option 3 will assist you in performing the update.

  1. The ATA may reboot or take a moment to apply the new settings.
  2. Test the Phone to make sure it is working.
  3. If your service doesn’t work please proceed to Option 2 and perform the changes to your ATA manually.
