***We do not recommend running a phone on WiFi. WiFi is an unreliable connection and may result in poor call quality***

If you have a Yealink SIP-T54W, then it is possible to set it up with WiFi rather than a wired connection. We recommend using a wired network connection, but this can be used if there is no way to connect the phone physically.

To start, you will need to plug in the phone's power brick. Most of the time, your phone will be powered by the network connection, but this can't be done if you are connecting by WiFi.

When the phone boots, you want to go to the menu by pressing the menu button.

Select the basic Icon. You can navigate the menu with the arrow keys and press OK to select.

Scroll down and select the WiFi option.

Press the (ABC, ABC, 2ab, 123) button multiple times, and it will cycle through the numbers and letters on the button. Press the * key to input special characters ( ! * & ^ % $ # @ ?, etc.)
