Hi there,

I need some help to make my VoIP running on a Linksys ATA (WXC VFX VoIP) to get enough traffic priority with my Huawei HG556A.

Issue is because in Huia we have backhaul congestion at peak times, so data flow gets very low.

I have VF Naked DSL and use VoIP with WXC. I have a Linksys ATA with 711 codec pushed to it as sound quality on 729 was too poor. It works well except during peak congestion periods, when loading Google Earth or similar web activity on a computer makes voice call turn bad with clipping and jitter.

I've posted on the VF forums here: http://forum.vodafone.co.nz/topic/7495-need-help-setting-qos-om-hg556a/page__gopid__61819&#entry61819 and the details of what I've tried acan be seen there.

However I am hoping that I may find more expertese with this sort of issue here at Geekzone.

Not ideal, but could try changing to open vfx and get the HG556a to do the SIP connection and not worry about the SPA. Does mean all the nice provisioning stuff that WxC do wouldn't work but perhaps worth a shot till the internet gets better or you've nailed QoS.

I've got the HG556a running with 2talk, and seems to be much more reliable than the modem > tomato'd wrt54gl > spa2012 before it (though not getting rid of that entirely yet - still in testing phase!).

Interesting: My HG556a doesn't have any phone out ports, so how can I use it for VoIP?
had the phone sockets concealed by a plug. Only issue is that I want to keep my phone number. Will need to look at all VoIP provider options now.

Darn can't edit in a strikethrough. Meant to put one over the bit that Huawei doesn't have phone sockets :P

You could look at ditching the Vodafone router & getting an all in one device for VFX. My brother n law is using a SRP527 on his Vodafone connection, with Sure Signal hooked up to it running no problem.

Have also looked at the VoIP settings in the Vodafone device, but no Auth ID, so no go with VFX




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?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
