Having problems with my 2Talk setup and the customer service is, well, lacking.

I have a 2Talk 500 account with a Chch based number. I have no problems making calls, but incoming calls don't connect most of the time, probably 10% of the time. The phone doesn't ring at all. When I speak to the people trying to call, they say it just beeps, doesn't even go to message bank. When I login to the 2talk user options, it lists that a call has been trying to get through and that there was no answer from my end.

My setup is telecom broadband into a D-Link DSL 502T modem connected to a Linksys SPA 2102 ATA (all settings as per 2Talk setup guide) which then connects to my D-Link DGL-4500 router.

As I mentioned above, making calls works is fine. Internet speed seems as fast as it normally would be without the ATA and skype works fine too.

Any suggestions? Is the modem responsible? The ATA not suited to a modem to ata to router setup?

Most likely a firewall issue through the 502T.
Make sure it has the lastest firmware and also put the SPA2102 in the DMZ zone.

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?
