Re: voip.ms Toronto servers

Yeah, the Obi ATAs blow any of the new Cisco junk out of the water. I run the 202s myself. I had all sorts of issues with the connection randomly dropping (even during calls) and often times not reconnecting until the ATA was rebooted. Ocassionally had one-way audio issues, the wonderful multiple "Hello Hello" when a call came in, etc. Replaced them with Obi202s, and not only have the voice lines been 100% solid and not dropped once with all of the CQ issues resolved, but the fax has been 100% reliable - and even at 33.6 - when it was 50/50 with the Ciscos. I seriously don't know how they can sell those pieces of shit.

I'm running an SPA2100 at home. I haven't had any issues with it, but ATAs of that era were designed by the same guys who do the Obi ATAs right now. So were the PAP2Ts. Those ATAs are pretty solid as it is, even though they're getting a bit long in the tooth. Upgrading to an Obi unit would provide you with a much upgraded feature set, but as far as picking up the phone and dialing or your phone always ringing when your number is called it shouldn't be much different.

Good to know, thx. 3 yrs ago, I had a choice of a PAP2T, or a Chinese knockoff PAP2T from ebay which overheated.

The Obi is great... I like that I can remotely change settings with it too. I do get the Hello hello occationally still. But I blame voip.ms but would be willing to conceed it could be a connection issue but I feel this is unlikely.
