I have that e51 also, I had so much trouble with it regarding connecting to
WEP encrypted LANs that I gave up on it. I handed it back 4 times and they
kept giving me another broken e51 - I upgraded firmware, trawled the web -
tried everything and finally demanded they pay for an e270 as the e51
wouldn't work (with WEP) - and now I'm "condemned to mobile broadband for
use at home" -
I hadn't thought about setting it up the way you are using it - I take it
you are configuring the SIP settings to connect to your blueface account? I
might try this route before I go an buy a digital phone to test this.
Thanks for the tip.
