I am new to this forum page and wanted to post some helpful information to help those using the Netopia method.
Here is a youtube video of how the ringdown system works http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfD4EGjrcFc
As you know telephone simulators such as the ts are very pricey and hard to find. or take a while to build your own.
Another option is to use a Pap2t As a ringdown service. I currently use the pap2t with my netopia and works great. Well not at first I had to do further adjustments to get it to work but i will be sharing this with you today.
Fax settings the voip device shows that it works with fax. but not out of the box. and also you may want to static your voip device and make sure it works before setting up your ringdown. after the ring down is setup you will not be able to reset the device using the telephone because *** will not work it will ring the other line before you can dial anything. if you static the device and unable to get in just dail *** reset ,(before you setup the ringdown) on your phone pad it will then reset the device.
also *** 110# , will give you your ipaddress the voip device is getting on the network.
here is a video of my setup hopefully this is helpful to you all.
these are the scripts i talked about on youtube
line 2 settings
I hope this information will help save you guys some money.
(also if you guys can help me with a serial modem setup with netopia that will be great then i can help test out other netopia models to get them online)
I have a website that has my configuration it will look like a real pap2t. you can make changes it will save the changes in your browser but not for everyone else. enjoy also included it the html file to download as well if you like to download the original file.
i included the configuration of my pap2t it will open in your web browser and you can look around
