Re: Choppy sound quality. Connecting IP phone directly to modem.

said by Dan_voip:

How about the choppy calls, do you still have this issue?

The phone is working great now. It's connected straight to the cable modem. Nothing else is using the network besides the phone and the pc connected to its lan port. This is my first VOIP experience. So I'm loving it. Everything is so instantaneous. The phone is great. The sound quality is great. The configuration possibilities are crazy.

I'm also really impressed with how quick the phone is to reboot whenever I change the network setup. At first, I was going back and forth between connecting the Yealink directly to modem and connecting the Yealink to my old router. Every time I would do that, the IP assigned to the phone would change. So I would have to reboot the phone. All the times I rebooted, I never had a problem. It would start up, accept its new IP and network config, and just work, all in a matter of a few seconds. I must have gone through that drill 30 or 40 times and the Yealink never blinked. I don't know if that's typical for SIP phones. But from my experience with anything related to networks, things usually aren't that easy.
