Prior to Christmas, I purchased the “on special” Linksys PAP2T from Dick Smiths, signed up with the Xnet VFX Service and asked them to leave Line 2 open so that I could configure it for the iTalk service I had already. I had a couple of initial problems with the first configuration file in that it kept clearing the Line 2 settings, but that was resolved by the Help Desk.
However, I have a further ongoing problem and still have a case open, but am beginning to wonder if I have faulty hardware. The issue is that whatever phone is plugged into Line 2 will not ring. I initially thought that this was only happening with the VFX service configured on Line 1, but on doing some further testing and factory re-setting the PAP2T in the last couple of days, I have discovered some very odd symptoms:
- If phone connected to Line 1, it rings fine for incoming line 1 call, with either VFX config file loaded, or manually configured with iTalk settings.
- If phone connected to Line 2 and call comes in on Line 2, phone on Line 2 does not ring, but call can be answered if phone picked up.
- However, if phone connected to Line 1 and call comes in on Line 2, phone on Line 1 will ring and when picked up stops ringing and disconnects Line 2 call.
I’ve pretty much decided it should not work like this, but just wanted to check whether anyone else using a PAP2T can confirm if they are experiencing similar symptoms?
