grant_k: AFAIK, -NA Linksys devices of any kind are unlikely to be supported by VFX.


This is what my question was, is it only the PAP2T-NA that can not be used or is it all the -NA devices?



This is why Niel, our good friends at Trademe will not remove the offender since we don't manufactuerer the equipment even though we have pointed the fake dealers out, we have had several people now burnt by this, it only applies to the PAP2-NA /PAP2T-NA

I notice on there Phil that the guy doesnt say that they work on Xnet VFX. He does point out that they are for a US voip service but I can see though that a newcomer to the voip scene could see the brand name Linksys and think ooh this should work with Xnet VFX only as you say to find they got burnt.

The reason for this is that the MAC address on the unit is not the actual MAC the sticker will say one thing but the actual software MAC (the real MAC) is different, all of these devices have exactly the same software MAC address, i.e mass produced identical device, so any one doing provisioning for these will have a huge problem.

Trademe know's this and so does the seller, dosn't seem to matter though to either of them.

We now have supply of most items back on track, with plenty of PAP2T and SPA2102 in stock.  These units will show as unconfigured as units are reworked to VFX configuration by the distributor.  Of course they can be easily used with VFX by entering the profile rule address. 

We have alot of stock of AM300. 

WRP400 stock is due in the next few days (we ran out for a few days) and we have a good quantity of these coming. 

We have alot of SPA942 stock.

WAG54GP2 stock is due in the second or third week of May.  Also note, some offshore WAG54GP2s (also PAP2T and SPA2102) maybe pre-configured or locked for an overseas voice provider.

Two questions, first, when the Linksys products are configured for VFX, does this mean the profile rule is set to the WXC profile rule?

The reason I ask is the last batch we still had to manually put the config rule in, even though they were stamped with the VFX config.

Second question, can you put a RJ11 male to BT female converter in the SPA2102 box. No one has phones with RJ11 plugs, they are all RJ11 and we are having to break down you boxes and insert the adapters ourselves.

The VFX ready boxes are reworked by the local distributors - they *should* always have the profile rule.  If you have received un-reworked units I would suggest it may have been a disty slip-up.  Moving forward, I have it on good authority that this is being resolved.  You will soon see a custom VFX sleeve and information to mark out VFX ready products (ie profile rule already there) vs the unconfigured units.

Will look into getting an appropriate cable added to the VoIP products.  Please keep in mind when we make a change on a product such as this it can take a few months until it reaches the local supply chain from the factory. (It's a long boat ride...)

Excellent news, thanks. Are you the tech pac rep?

Also note - you only need a adapter, not a whole cable...

A bit OT, but in response to the above post from marwill2. Are there any plans for the WRP400 to ship with an SMA connector? I have an installation that uses VFX and requires the HGA7S high gain antenna. The WRP400 is replacing a WAG54GP2, which has the SMA connector.

Cheers!
