I remember running into exactly the problem you describe with my 7910. 
Problem is, I don't remember what I did to fix it, but the phone is 
working very well now.

I'm going to post a copy of the relevant part of my skinny.conf file. 
Maybe it'll help out; I think that's what I was messing with to fix it and 
let it register.  If that's not it, let me know and/or send me your 
skinny.conf and I'll see if I can think of anything.  I could also send 
config info from the phone itself (although I don't know what the 
relevance to your 7920 will be.  I'm also thinking I messed around with 
DNS at some point,too.

I've not seen too much other talk about skinny phones, and would be 
interested in knowing how it works out.

; KHM: My 7910 phone.
[khm]                   ; Device name
device=SEP00049ABBAC9C  ; Offical identifier (host name of the phone. This 
is important)
;host=        ; 
;permit=192.168.0/24    ; Optional, used for authentication
callerid="Kevin McMahon" <555-555-0462>
context=outbound                ; This phone may make outbound calls
line => 800                     ; Seems to be what it displayed on the LCD 
along with Date/Time.
dtmfmode=rfc2833                ; Works.
