I've raised it at 2talk....but not heard anything yet so thought I'd try here as well.

 

I've had 2talk for years, running through a ex-BiddleCorp Linksys Pap2T.   Caller ID (and reverse white pages lookup) has been working fine for years also.

 

But recently the caller id coming up on the phone has stopped appearing.  I haven't made any changes at 2talk, or on the pap2t or the phone.

 

Any ideas what could have caused this? and how I might fix it?

I had this a few weeks ago with my SPA112, and a simple power cycle fixed it. No issues since. No idea what caused the problem.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I power cycled the pap2t and it didn't seem to fix it (actually I forced a remote reboot).  And haven't power cycled the phone yet.

Remote reboot =/= Powercycle - I would pull the plug to confirm.





Hmmmm

So I gave the pap2t and the phone an unplug. Still not caller Id.

Also have noticed it takes a real long time to dial out. Like 5-10 seconds before it starts ringing.

Get your money back from BiddleCorp lol. Could be a faulty FXS port. Can you program up the second port?




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 think Kobe got a 2nd number on the other port so could just try that, and if it works swap them over

This can be a side-effect of dialplan configuration.

 

If you suffix the number with the # key, does the dial then occur immediately?

I tried that but just got a number disconnected tone. But it was instant after dialling.

So as a follow on, and based on this thread: https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=85&topicid=242134&action=new_disc_replies&quotereply=2106902

 

Is it work persisting with this?  I've still got the problem.  I guess my options are factory reset it and try and load the later firmware (5.x).

 

Or should I look at new hardware. 

 

Would another ata be ok? Like a SPA-122/112  I'd prefer to hook in to my existing wiring, as I tend to use a uniden cordless with two handsets.

 

Technically if one of the newer SIP sets have the same range I'd only need the single network connection right?  And does the base station talk to all handsets wirelessly, ie there isn't one master set that is connected to the base?

If you're a happy with your current cordless handsets then maybe just a new ATA - the PAP2T is a dam old unit these days.

 

Look at the Yeastar TA100 or TA200 (one or two ports respectively).

 

Otherwise, the Gigaset A540IP is a great option for a SIP capable handset (web interface is rubbish compared to Yealink, but better range than the Yealinks) - but will be three times the price of just replacing an ATA.

I am generally happy with the cordless handsets, they're not that old.  With the yeastar, it's not one I've heard of before, I assume that wouldn't have any 2talk specific provisioning or guides to follow?  Unlike the SPA112?

If you're not confident configuring a generic ATA for use with 2talk and you happen to be on UFB fibre then you could consider purchasing their 'ONT Voice' instead ($5/month). Then all the config is done for you and it's plug-n-play. Check out their newly refreshed website for details:

Depends on the device.   The only bits that gives me the willies on these things are all the cadence and ringing settings for regional config.

Oh nice, they have updated their website. Didn't know they offered ONT Voice to retail customers.

 

@davidcole - They are quite straightforward to set up, similar to options seen in the SPA/PAP2T, set up SIP registration info, dial plan, and country tones. They run Asterisk in the background so have a few extra little call routing features if required too.

+1 for the Yeastars - they're good boxes.
