Hi,

 

I have followed this previous thread (https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=81&topicid=213882) to configure my own Fritz!box 7490 with Slingshot UFB.   Everything is working fine for about a month until telephone service suddenly stopped about two days ago, my internet access is not affected.   Now I am seeing these in the Event Log:

Registration of Internet telephone number 649[my_number] failed. Remote site reports reason for error 404
The telephone number 649[my_number] has not been available for more than one hour.
Registration of Internet telephone number 649[my_number] failed. Remote site reports reason for error 404 [2 messages since 29.12.17 16:33:00]
The telephone number 649[my_number] has not been available for more than one hour.

 

I tried some network debug and seems I can't access the SIP gateway for some reason.  Should I be at least able to ping it?

 $ host 119.224.142.182
182.142.224.119.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer default-rdns.vocus.co.nz.

From the Fritz, this is my internet setting:
Internet connection established successfully. IP address: 101.98.23.##, DNS server: 202.180.64.10 and 202.180.64.11, gateway: 101.98.0.91, broadband PoP: cpcak4-bng1

Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Vincent

Hi Vincent

 

 

Did you ever manage to get your phone working again? I had UFB installed yesterday and managed to get internet access working using a Fritz 7490, but not the phone. Slingshot support told me there was no way it would ever work with my router and I would have to get one of the routers they supply. Is that what you've had to do?

 

 

Dave

Hi,

 

 

 

I can confirmed that the instruction in the original thread is absolutely correct:

 

https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=81&topicid=213882

The problem is 100% at Slingshot end, HOWEVER they will deny it with the usual "we don't support this model" reply.  Even thought that is the exact model they provided for their most expensive plan... the reason they gave me was those has "special firmware"...

 

 

 

My problem was finally "resolved" when I gave in and got a Slingshot modem from them (luckily my contract was up, so i only need to pay S&H when I renew).  

 

When it finally arrived, I still got only internet and no phone (exactly as when I was using Fritz).  But now they have no excuse to not REALLY look into my problem. So after a few emails, they finally done some configuration on my homeline settings and I got internet and phone back.  At that point I promptly unplug the Slingshot modem, plug in my Fritz 7490.... and MAGIC! everything is working again.

 

 

 

So after two weeks and $15 everything is back to normal.  I have no issue ever since, and this time (*) I am keeping my Slingshot modem for any future problem.

 

 

 

Dave, I suggest you bribe / beg anyone to get your hand on a "NetComm NF4V" even temporarily, so Slingshot will look at your support case more seriously. 

 

 

 

Regards,

 

Vincent

 

 

 

*  As I mentioned in my original post, I was using the 7490 without any issue for a month initially.  So I actually voluntarily returned my old Slingshot modem to them for reuse / recycle...

Thanks Vincent, I suspected that they were having me on and it would be possible to get the Fritz working. I figured they just didn't want to go to the trouble of telling me what I needed to do. It will be very irritating if my setup is already perfect and the issue is just with their end. Had a similar problem with a neighbour's router. Unlimited Internet eventually found that they hadn't configured everything correctly and the router was set up OK all along.

 

 

I'll see if I can borrow an NF4V and if I can't I'll get one from Slingshot and, as you say, they'll be forced to diagnose any issues from there.

 

 

Thanks for your prompt and thorough reply, you have been very helpful.

 

 

Regards

 

Dave

Thanks for the settings, Vincent, I had a few of them wrong.

 

 

Presumably the password is the same one that I use for Internet?

 

 

I'm getting a 404 response code to the SIP registration. According to Wikipedia:

 

 

404 Not Found

 

The server has definitive information that the user does not exist at the domain specified in the Request-URI. This status is also returned if the domain in the Request-URI does not match any of the domains handled by the recipient of the request.

 

 

So at least there does appear to be communication with the SIP registrar. That wasn't happening before I made the corrections.

 

 

Regards

 

Dave

Just be aware the serial will be tied to your account and TR-069 provisioning so this will need to be changed first.
