My crappy WRTP54G finally died and I was able to revive it by ripping out a capacitor that was tripping it into an endless resetting cycle, but the phone side was only half working. I could call out but the moment I picked up an incoming call it would powercycle the router and sent the call to message.
So I decided to get a SPA2102, as I didn't want to deal with another Linksys Router and it means I can upgrade to a faster separate router, and spread the heat which probably helped to kill the first unit.
So I've got the SPA provisioned and up running. But now my caller ID display on my Uniden DECT 1825 handsets now displays a double up of the incoming number with some extra 0 or two between eg:
Cell phone number such as 021 123 4567 will display as:
Landlines show with only one extra 0 inbetween eg 09 123 4567:
Anyone else seen this problem?
I did not get this with the WRTP54G. Have it logged as a fault with WXC, but no resolution yet.
The only other minor issue with the SPA2102 I see is the throughput of it's router seems to be limited to about 7.5Mb/s, slowing my cable's 10Mb/s potential. Unfortunately the SPA does not seem to want to to connect to the buggered WRTP54G, so I have the SPA first in the chain. Has anyone found a work around for the speed limit?
