woody99: I've been on the phone to support this afternoon. The very helpful fellow told me the last caller had been complaining of the same problem.

No fix yet. Been elevated to next level.


And then some, I'm talking to our Network architect about it right now :-)

I am guessing that it's not going to be easy to track down....

Credit where it's due. I called twice yesterday. Both answered within seconds and the guys I spoke to were great.

Been elevated to next level - see what happens today. So far, no complaints!

I am glad to know that I am not the only one who has an issue with this device. Seems very poor quality, calls disconnect and often we are offline. We are using Orcon fiber.

Just like to add that this is also an issue for me... Glad I stumbled on this thread, I have tried to contact Orcon a number of times lately and been unsuccessful.

Things to note, as I barely use my phone due to decent mobile contracts it is a right pain in the butt when a call does come through and you cannot understand the other end. However it has started me thinking that I may as well not have a phone, if only they would offer a VDSL package with no phone and more data I would be tempted to upgrade. The other option I guess is to switch to someone like Snap. As I have been unable to contact Orcon to discuss my issues and account it is likely that maybe the next option.


Trying not to high-jack thread just thought it wise to point out that issues like this make people think.

my guess would be jitter, I would get orcon have chorus check the jumpers at the exchange,they may be dry. additionally remove all codecs bar a/ulaw 722 and g729. I know they suggest a network error, however I have seen (heard) a crap voip link, become cristal clear after a little bit of work on the dsl link by chorus.

So our actions taken seemed to avoid the issue tonight, we will obviously keep this under close observation with the Network Architects.
