Hello guys, to start i need to inform am not really an IT guy, i know very little about IT, so please bear with me if my questions seems stupid to you guys. Thanks.
I am based in Ireland and my ISP is Vodafone. I have got 2 static IPs, one is assigned to my router and the other i intended to use in a VOIP device. However, the device is just not working although am sure all configurations are properly done! Also, i have noticed that when i type in the static IP am using for the VOIP device, in the web browser, all i get is "internet explorer cannot display the webpage". Being a static IP, shouldnt we be able to type it anywhere in the world and the IP details should show up?

I have been told by Vodafone that they do not support VOIP....does that make any sense?

Can anybody help or advise me?

Putting in the static IP from the outside might not get you anything - your ISP might be blocking port 80 which wouldn't allow anything to pass through if you just put in http:// in a browser - so that's not a conslusive troubleshooting step, really

I have little experience with VOIP devices, but I did use a Vonage device for a while. I just plugged it in and as long as it had a path to the internet it would work.

Do you have any more info to share about the hardware devices you are using? Model numbers?
