I signed up with voip.co.uk
back in 2007, and used their service with a
PAP2T for many years. During that time I was given a BT Voyager 2500V
router which has got 2 phone ports, and managed to get that working with
at my holiday flat in about 2012, but never really used it in
anger. I hadn't used the PAP2T for several years either, and that has
Fast forward to 2020. I'm about to cancel the landline and ADSL BB at my
holiday flat, and have installed a D-Link 4G router which has 4 ethernet
ports. I want to use the Voyager just as an ATA, not as a router - but I
can't now get it to work with Voip. I've set it up in Bridge Mode, and
computers connected to it get their IP addresses and internet access
from the main router with no problem.
Can anyone confirm that the domestic service provided by voip.co.uk
Firstcom) is still live? I'm aware that they're now majoring on business
users, and haven't accepted any new domestic customers for many years.
But it appears to be live in that when I dial my voip numbers I hear my
outgoing message on their voicemail service - even though they no longer
support basic voicemail. Also, I can still log on to their dashboard and
see my SIP accounts.
But I can't get the Voyager to register with them, so there's no
dialtone and I can't make and receive calls.
I have configured the Voyager with the information which used to be in
the PAP2T - which is quite a challenge because many of its parameters
are not easy to get at. The web interface is very limited. But there's a
Telnet interface which is a lot better - but that doesn't reach every
parameter. Then you can backup its config to an .XML file, edit that and
then restore from it. I'm very happy to share the config info with
anyone who can tell me where I'm going wrong.
I know that Woody has/had a voip.co.uk
account - hence the Ping.
