Daylight Saving Time tomorrow - make sure your ATA is ready

If you use a PAP2T, SPA2102, SPA3102, or similar ATA, this is the correct way to configure it so that it changes its time for the Daylight Saving Time rules that most of Canada and the US follows.

On the system tab, set Primary NTP Server to 1.pool.ntp.org and Secondary NTP Server to 2.pool.ntp.org. (Or use the NTP servers of your choice.)

On the Regional tab, set Time Zone appropriately for your region, and also set Daylight Saving Time Rule to start=3/8/7/2:00;end=11/1/7/2:00;save=1

If you use an OBi device, the default configuration is already correct, with the possible exception of LocalTimeZone.

Thanks, Mango. Mine will finally be right again. I never did figure out why it jumps ahead (by two weeks) to the DST settings. It did the same last spring -- dropping an hour, two weeks (or about two weeks) ahead of time.

Trusty PAP2 didn't let me down.

Pfft... No worries here - I'm all set. When I set up my PAP2T I used the instructions from Mango's... oh... wait...

My PAP2 @ 3.1.6(LS) is using time.nist.gov and time-a.nist.gov

Is there any reason to change it to your suggested servers?

No need; any NTP server should be fine. The reason I suggest an NTP server is that there have been reports of devices not respecting the Daylight Saving Time Rule if there is no NTP server configured.

Not an ATA, but my DNS-323 sucks at this.

Hello mango,

My SPA-3102:

Regional > Miscellaneous:

Time Zone: GMT -5 (Eastern Time)

DST Rule based on Windows 7 Date & Time Changes:

Starts 3/10/2 (starts 2 AM March 10)
Ends 11/3/2 (ends 2 AM November 3)

1) Is this correct?

2) I am wondering why there's a "7" behind the dates

Thank you.

The way I interpret your rule is "start the Tuesday on or after March 10 and end the Tuesday on or after November 3". That is probably not what you intend.

The third parameter is the day of the week. (2 = Tuesday; 7 = Sunday.)

This start=3/8/7/2:0:0;end=11/1/7/2:0:0;save=1 is what I have for a Daylight Saving Time Rule on my PAP2v1 and it works just fine.

Hi Mango,

Thanks for your info. I have made the corrections for DST rule:

I'm curious - does the SPA3102 have different configuration from other Linksys devices? I ask because it doesn't appear in that format on my PAP2T.
