| || || | Shared VoIP access
I have a need to have the same VoIP number accessible from two different
locations but both registered onto the system at the same time.
I have a recollection that I have seen on here that some VSPs provide
The need is for a home phone and office phone on the same number that
can be answered at home or at the office which are about 6 miles apart.

| || || | Double NAT - any hope of VOIP
As per subject,
Any chance of STUN helping VoIP from Draytek router (2862Vac) with
integrated VoIP client finding success through router WAN connecting
over ethernet into a WiFi Access Point running in client mode that's
connected to 5GHz virgin media wifi from super hub 2.
Currently a Gigaset Voip box is plugged into said access point and
working fine but adding the 2nd router into the mix I'm...

Ofcom have recently launched a number of consultations taking into account how the move to IP is affecting the future provision of telephone numbers
Promoting trust in telephone numbers - This document sets out our proposal for a key change in the way numbers are used by networks, which we believe is necessary to tackle nuisance and scam calls. Our proposal could also support better processes...

| || || | Router port forwarding for VoIP
I have a Sipura SPA2000 for use on Sipgate. It has developed a habit of
losing its network connection requiring a power cycle to get it to
reconnect. This is not new but the frequency of it happening is getting
worse. One suggestion I have seen is to set up port forwarding for it.
I am using a TP-Link Archer D2 router and port forwarding comes under
the banner of Virtual Server.
I have no...

| || || | Easy to use voip phones, what's available nowadays?
We have an ageing Gigaset C475IP DECT/VOIP system and it's beginning
to get unreliable with less than good battery charging etc. (We have
replaced most of the batteries now but it's still not too good)
Our main phone use is still the landline, VOIP is just backup and used
to make another call when the landline is in use.
So I'm considering getting a cheap and, hopefully, reliable DECT

| || || | Softphones for Betamax
I can't stand any more complaints about audio quality from people when
I speak to them on Betamax voipcheap.co.uk using the Betamax
Audio quality is perfect both ways with Skype.
Please recommend a generic windows softphone to work with
voipcheap.co.uk. Ideally one that can extract my caller names and
numbers from the cloud at Betamax.

| || || | Need to abandon betamax
Currently using VoipStunt / betamax, which we mainly use for relatives
to ring Japan from the U.K.
Because of the time zone difference the window of time for phoning is
fairly narrow, which i guess means a lot of people phoning at more or
less the same time.
Now we expect a few hiccups, since we phone from our laptop; but lately
the service has just got too bad. With the Voipstunt...

In article ,
I have an old Grandstream VOIP phone I inherited a while back (with 3
more in the loft, so not a worry).
Not used a great deal, but it lives on my desk.
Just a few minutes ago, the LCD backlight came on (thus catching my eye)

| || || | Sipgate to Voipfone and a problem with CSipSimple
I've been using a free Sipgate account for a couple of years to provide the local number for incoming calls to my small business.This has worked well and cost me almost nothing as I don't really make any outgoing calls on the account.
Given that my phone number is now so important to my business I'm porting the number to Voipfone as I'd rather pay a bit of money each month so that if I have any...

| || || | Silent calls from IP number via Sipgate
Can anyone advise me as to how to stop silent calls coming to my VoIP phone.
I am using Sipgate, and I get silent calls from a number that displays as IP
009024115794, I am not sure if all the calls are from the same number as
they are not recorded in the call log, and once the call stops, the number
disappears, but the calls come at all times, probably once every 3 days,

| || || | Which codec for Betamax \ Dellmont in Siemens A580
I'm using a Siemens A580 IP for my VOIP calls. Using Discount Voip for my
outgoing calls. It works OK but I can certainly tell an audio difference
between that and say Voipfone, which is what I am using for incoming calls.
I was just wondering what codec selection other folk were using for the
various Betamax services. I'm on a 150 mbps FTTP connection.

My Grandstream ATA allows me to set distinctive ring tones based on Caller
ID, and I'm using that successfully.
The manual also tells me I can set distinctive ring tones based on prefix:
"""For example: If configured as *617, Ring Tone 1 will be used in case of
call arrived from the area code 617."""
OK, nice feature, so I'll configure a distinctive ring tone for the prefix

| || || | VOiP in home with analogue phone line
We currently have a Virgin Media analogue phone line, connected to a DECT
base station which provides answerphone, caller ID and phone service to a
number of Dect handsets around the house.
If I wanted to keep the analogue line, is there a device I can plug into the
analogue phone line, that will then give me VOIP service within my home. I
envisage this device connecting to my local...

I'm planning to switch my landline number over to a VoIP provider, and use an
ATA to connect to the existing phone wiring and handsets. That way my aged
parent doesn't need to learn anything new.
I used to have 2 master sockets - an early NTE5 with a DSL faceplate, and
then a single pair link from the filtered side of that to a 'voice only'
master socket. That was done to make it easy to...

I use C Sip Simple on my Android phone with Sipgate, when a call comes in and I want to answer it on the mobile it rings but there's often no button displayed to press to answer the call and by the time I've tried searching for one or pressing the icon for SSip the call's gone to voicemail!
Is there some obscure setting I need to change?

We have a largeish house with WiFi and wired LAN using two Draytek
routers (a 2860n and a 2820n) plus several switches.
The 2820n is now just a WiFi access point, i.e. its WANs are not
connected to anything and it just runs as a switch with WiFi.
The C475IP used to be connected to the 2820n but since we started
using Youview (via PlusNet) more extensively it was getting rather
