I am using an old SPA2102 ATA on 2Talk with Skinny VDSL and HG659 with a max upload speed of 3Mbps.

 

I get a few a voice dropouts and the occasional hangup on an incoming call.

 

I figure that various uploading devices I have are hogging the available upload bandwidth.

 

I am not expecting to get fibre for at least another year.

 

I am considering operating a more up-to-date ATA as a router connected between my modem and my house router so that voice gets the bandwidth it needs with a higher priority than the rest of my network,

 

My ATA choices appear to be a Cisco SPA122 or a Grandstream HT812.

 

The SPA122 has a network speed limit of about 20Mbps from what I have read, so that would limit my network speed when I upgrade to fibre.

 

My other option is with an HT812 which has a Gigabit router and I believe it can handle 100Mbps.

 

Any ideas or help would be most appreciated.

 

TIA.

When you move to fiber the upload being so bad will no longer be an issue, so just go back to how it is now when that happens.

I'd prefer to target to THIS net architecture placing a SPA112 instead a SPA 122 behind an existing router not limiting fiber (later on).





No backup, no pity. Anyway, RAID isn't one.

The network is pretty much as shown in your link but using the SPA2102. I am looking forward to fibre and increased bandwidth.

Your issue is a QoS one, not an adapter issue. You simply need to set upstream QoS or implement steps to ensure you're not saturating your upstream. You have no control over your downstream, so can't change that if you are saturating that also.

 

Saturation won't cause dropped calls, so if you're seeing that regularly you're probably got configuration issues.

I'm argueing the same due to his actually slow plan with need for QoS config.

Not sure how to configure QoS in the HG659 or how to identify the type of traffic and how to apply controls.

 

I did look for LAN port bandwidth control but did not see anything I could recognise.

 

I have had only 2 dropped calls over the last year when picking up the phone to answer an incoming call. Calller rang back and no further problem.

Further looking at the HG659, I have enabled the Bandwidth Control and left the Upload and Download values at 0 (Auto). Maybe this will give a better or fairer distribution of bandwidth utilisation.

Firstly you should be able to get the ATA to properly tag things so that it has a higher priority. The router might just figure it out from that if you turn QOS on.
