With the new T5 Series, Yealink provides your business with professional IP phones with both Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity to give you maximum flexibility in the office.

Yealink T54W Wireless IP Phone is the Goldilocks’ bowl of porridge of the T5 Series, neither too basic nor too overloaded with features you’ll never use.

T54W has a large HD display with 16-bit color. You can adjust the angle of the display to avoid glare and fit your height. The 10 feature keys with dual-color LEDs and 4 soft keys make it a pleasure to use.

You get incredible audio quality with Optima HD technology. Acoustic Shield creates a virtual “shield” around your conversation, eliminating noise beyond that perimeter. For you, that means your audio is greatly improved, particularly in busy environments like open offices.

If you want to use a wireless headset, you have Bluetooth. If you want a wired headset, you can use USB or RJ9.

But the stand-out feature is native 802.11ac Wi-Fi support.

In this blog, we’re going to provide clear, simple to follow instructions on how to enable Wi-Fi on Yealink T54W.
