I have been using 2talk for making calls recently, I have found that often the calls have cut out e.g. I cannot hear the other person but they can hear me. It cuts back in but can be up to 20 seconds. I have asked 2talk but they don't seem to know why.

Anyone else had this?

I've been using 2Talk for some time now (business use so it gets heavy usage) and have not experienced any issues with it cutting out.

What is your configuration ? Are you using an ATA or dedicated VOIP phone ?

I access 2talk via my desktop. Connection is Telstraclear cable (lightspeed) via wifi (N). I thought maybe it was the wifi but issue still happens when connected via ethernet cable.

I have played with the call quality settings good or excellent, makes no difference.

is there other traffic on your internet connection when it cuts out ? I know that was a problem in my old office in Sydney with their voip service, anytime people were downloading large files, the voip service suffered with all sorts of issues.

No, not really.

I am starting to think if you want a reliable service you probaly need the dedicated hardware (i.e. Linksys SPA2102) to support it. The way my place is currenlty wired I might stick with the way it is.

Could be a variety of different things.

How many computers on your network? Do some reading on the make/model of your cable modem, I've had issues with a particular brand of ADSL modem doing something similar. Changed it and the issue disappeared.
