Access the Settings menu option (shown as a spanner icon) and then click on Registration – click on De-register handset.
If the above option is not shown please click on the 'INT' button and select the handset name and click on 'Options' and select 'De-register' to un-register the handset from base.
2. Next login to the existing N300 Base Station web interface to remove the phone lines that need to be moved over to the new N510 base station.
