Linksys PAP2 is a broadband telephone adaptor that allows an analogue telephone to make VoIP phone calls using your computer's high speed Internet connection. If the unit is locked and does not allow you to access the built-in web interface, you can reset the Linksys PAP2 password easily using any phone connected to the device. Resetting the Linksys PAP2 adaptor only takes a few moments and is a straightforward process.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Pick up the receiver of any phone connected to the Linksys PAP2 unit.

  2. 2

    Press the "*" (star) key four times and wait for the voice on the receiver to confirm the PAP2 unit is in the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) configuration menu.

  3. 3

    Dial "73738#" and wait for the voice on the receiver to ask you if you are sure you want to reset the unit.

  4. 4

    Press "1" to confirm the reset.

Tips and warnings

  • If you are using an unlocked PAP2 device originally supplied by Vonage, first disconnect the device from your router or cable modem before you perform the reset; otherwise the device will automatically attempt to connect and reprogram itself for use with Vonage.
