Kind of low pitched buzz when the corded phone is plugged in.

Also: Registration State: Can't connect to the login server.

Aha!

Then you need to enter Xnet's DNS Server details into your PAP2T so it can find the login server.

Give me a moment, I'll find them and post back here...

Under the SYSTEM Tab, enter these:

Primary DNS: 58.28.4.2
Secondary DNS: 58.28.6.2

That should get you up and running.

Finally, it sounds like your corded phone has a problem.  Either that, or the PAP2T is faulty.  Try your cordless phone and post back how it goes.

Okay just entered those for primary/secondary DNS. Will restart PAP2T now.

TerrorBlade: 58.28.5.2
58.28.6.2

Ah Yes, oops ... they need to be the DNS Servers for YOUR ISP (those earlier ones were mine).

TerrorBlade: Also I have disabled my router firewall.

You shouldn't need to do that.

Lol, okay reverting to old DNS servers.

Just to check, DHCP is "yes", I set static IP to 192.168.1.8 but what does that even mean/do because the PAP2T is 192.168.1.1 on the network at the moment?

Also this could possibly be the worst technical screwup I've ever made but in the "System" tab User Password is blank. Is this something I need to enter in?

DHCP - Yes
Static IP is as I said, gateway is 192.168.1.100 (my router), netmask is blank.

Hostname is blank, domain is blank, primary & secondary dns are 58.28.5.2, 58.28.6.2.

I hope I've made an obvious mistake.

Phone into the Help desk and get them to assist you, we see the registration attempts and are replying but it looks like it's not being passed back to your PAP2T

Okay so...

After an hour or so with the helpdesk I finally got dial tone + phone light + "Online" registration state by shutting off router + PAP2T then turning on the router, waiting, then turning on the PAP2T.

I couldn't make any calls (phone would dial but no ring, then start beeping as if someone had hung up after 6 seconds) then the phone light would randomly go away and I'd lose dial tone till I restarted the router.

Then after talking with some other people he said some people had trouble with older dynalink routers and apparently mine is incompatible with VOIP (I have an RTA300) so yeah.

Fun times...

Oh...
That's a bit sad. So I guess you're up for a new router then.

I used a 3Com with my PAP2T and never had a problem. You could also get a Linksys WAG310G which would do the job all in one box, but probably quite expensive.

I would suggest asking others here what they use for VoIP and see which best suits. My current setup uses a wireless ISP connection, so won't be of any help to you. I'm pretty sure Niel uses a separate Router and ATA arrangement, and no doubt others do too.

Okay, busted out a newish ASUS router I won a couple of years back and the phone is working properly in about 5 seconds :/

So older dynalink routers are apparently incompatible with VOIP, the RTA300 definitely isn't at least with my config.

Thanks a lot to everyone who contributed and I hope this thread helps someone else out in future.

Link doesn't work but I'm guessing it's a guy with an RTA300 who can't get his Voip to work :/
