I was wondering if someone can help me out with an annoying problem I have had with my AG310. I bought it originally so that I could have my internet connection and voip service all in one box instead of a separate ATA. I have followed the instructions on 2talks website for the Linksys SPA-2102 setup and even gone to the extent of adding an extra 0s on the sip ports as it says in the troubleshooting part of the instructions. What is happening is, at some time during the day (and this seems to happen at random) the ATA seems to disconnect from 2talk and not reconnect and I have to unplug the power from it and reconnect it and then it will after the modem connects to the internet reconnect up to 2talk again but the next day it will have disconnected again. I have got my old PAP2T working on 2talk at the moment and that doesnt miss a beat at all. So basically my question is has anybody else had this problem with the AG310 on 2talk and is there something in the settings not mentioned on the SPA-2102 setup instructions that needs to be changed to stop this from happening?

I had the same problem with a Linksys PAP2T on 2Talk. This was the suggested fix which worked. The setup for you should be similar

PAP2T Keep alive info

It is more than likely a problem with your router and its firewall.

You can try setting NAT Keep Alive: YES and see if that makes any difference.

You can also try shortening the Register Expires: setting. Instead of the default 3600 (seconds) try 60 seconds

Thanks for that reply old3eyes I will give that a try. Just looked on the 2talk website and there is no mention of the NAT keep alive in their setup instructions and just looked on the AG310 and by default it is set to no. Will post back in a few days to let you know how I got on.

Ive been running a AG310 for a while with no problems. Are you also running a softphone without 2Talk one number active? this is the only way I can get my Ag310 to drop the connection,
you could also try :
* Change the following NAT Support Parameters (optional):
o STUN Enable: yes
o STUN Test Enable: yes
o STUN Server:

(The STUN settings should be optional. Your SPA2102 should work fine without STUN enabled, so you can enable/disable these settings if you are having issues registering.)

Yes I have tried turning the STUN off and on. I am running the AG310 Jimbo with the SPA2102 settings. I have just gone down another path with this. Since the PAP2T didn't disconnect I have setup the ATA of the AG310 and just before I disconnected the PAP2T and clicked on save all changes I went through all the settings of the PAP2T and checked the AG310 against them and there were about 4 or 5 in the AG310 that either said yes or no when the PAP2T said the opposite. So I changed these to the same as the PAP2T and so far no problems but will wait until the weekend before I break out the champagne. Incidentally the NAT keep alive setting on my PAP2T was set to no. So if what I have done this time ends up not working then I will set the keep alive setting to yes

Well it looks like the problem has been solved. It has been going all week without a single connection drop. So thankyou everyone for all your suggestions.
