I had one line connected no problems at all.  When nDSL was released in Jan, I jumped on it.

It appears to be a hue mistake, since then I am having voice quality issues, and cannot "switch" between calls.  Xnet helpdesk get me to monitor it for a few days, give them times and dates of the calls that were doing it.

Did all that, xnet said "We'll ring you back when the tech team have had a look" a week went by, rang xnet back again, "oh, the tech team couldn't find anything wrong, its a fault with your hardware"

So I complained again, and again, now they say some packets are being lost, and for me to do a trace route.  Downloaded the program, pinging google.co.nz results:

To which I got told "oh its something to do with your lan, see 1% loss at your end"

Do I get the feeling Xnet are trying to blame my hardware rather than looking into actually fixing the problem?

They ignored my comment "When I had just the one line there were no issues"

If you have a ticket number please let me know.

Is this an issue where you can not transfer between 2 numbers on a single Pap2 ?

If so I did see something about this when one of my guys was looking at it, using the hook flash should return you dial tone and then you should be able to dial the number of your second line when it's answered , hook flash again 3 way call and then hang up should transfer the call. This works correctly here when tested.

Also in the ticket I asked then to pass on you can hook flash *44 then the other number of the phone and this will do a Call Transfer unsupervised.


As for quality , what we have is some indicatiors for every call that we can look at that let's us know if there is any issues, one of thos indicators is packet loss so the Tech response person is just infroming you of what he see's , if it's occuring now I don't have an answer as yet but Packet loss is realted to the actual connection between you and us, if it's a global issue everybody would have it, but let us know what the details are and we can take a look.

Sorry no ticket number, but under phone number 04 977 [removed]

The issue is with answering call waiting beeps, have tried it on 4 different hand sets, all that happens is it goes quiet as it tries to flick over, but never gets there, and being a cordless, I cannot hang up then pick up in time, i end up cutting both people off.

What I do at the moment is if I get a call waiting beep,l I quickly run to my emails and do a send and receive to see who it is calling through, most of the time I miss the call though.

However I have worked out if i press the flash button 15 times it will mostly switch over.

I understand the call quality is not global, but its a right pain, when I had one VFX line, nothing but awesome service, since we have had 2 lines, its turned to crap.  Its looking like I'm going to have to go back to telecom for one of the phone lines, which I dont want to do, as I personally don't like telecom.

[Moderator edit (MF): please no phone numbers. You can send a PM if needed]

What kind of router do you have, and what is the upstream sync speed? Just a thought, as I've seen some ADSL connections connecting on reach-extend mode with very low upstream. My thoughts are, during the phone call switching, there may not be enough bandwidth to support both calls at setup.

The above could be applicable to a bad dsl connection too, again as the bandwidth usage increases, it may suffer more noticeable packet loss.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Looking at the 3 calls you had yesterday from the x55 number 2 look fine but see a bit of packet loss on a call to the number xxxx 991
Also looking at your x35 number and you have a number of calls on this and they all look pretty good , was this the case ?

  
Just testing here this morning and all is working with my PAP2, can you tell me what model of of phones you are using please , I tested using a Uniden cordeless Phone.

I can't see how it would be phone related, because everything was working with one VFX line. Only since the second one has been put on, we've been having these problems

Are you sure they aren't interfering with each other (I wouldn't be surprised if they were)? Can you borrow two corded phones to test with?

dont have any corded phones, will try and borrow a couple off friends.

The cordless bases are about 5m away from eachother, and have been that way for the last couple of years

5m is a little close.... some phones can cope with this, but many can't - I'll be interested to see how your testing with corded phones goes. Good luck :D.

I'll give it a go, thanks for that!

The 1st line is on an extension card so will move it to another room, see how that manages
