In particular its DTMF (touch-tone) handling is excellent, and the audio quality when using its FXO port is perfect...unlike the SPA3102
I have an SPA3102. I have never experienced DTMF issues, but I'm using firmware 5.2.13(February 2012). I'm aware of people using older firmware versions having issues with DTMF.

Audio quality on the PTSN line, when set to G711u, is perfect. G711u is G711u. 5.2.13 fixed a problem where the preferred codec setting was ignored. I can't speak to older firmware versions.

That's good to hear. Did you ever have any issues with echo when using PSTN, before the firmware update? If not, is there any secret to that? :)

No. But I did have the PSTN line set to the G711u codec.

Not that I'm aware of. But

Echo Canc Enable:
Echo Canc Adapt Enable:
Echo Supp Enable:

are all set to "yes" on the PSTN Line tab.

Before the firmware update, I did have callerID not passing through the name (only the phone number) on the PSTN line.
I can't confirm whether that's been fixed on the SPA3102 with the latest firmware.

I'm thinking of checking out an Obi202 just for the Google Voice. I'm wondering whether it's possible to configure Freephoneline, Google Voice, and Voip.ms all
on the same voip line without needing to use a third party routing service (like sipsorcery). But with free calls likely dying in 2013 with Google Voice, I don't know
if it's worth it.

It should be possible with the OBi202 since it supports four VoIP services. The OBi100 and OBi110 only support two.

These obi products appear to have a built-in DISA option as well, which the SPA3102 lacks. I think I'll check out the OBi202.

...and that's where using Voip.ms comes in handy... :razz:

I just got started with VOIP stuff and picked up one of these a month ago. Anyone care to answer a few questions for me?

I bought this adapter not realizing it only supports 1 line. I was hoping to use both a free voip service like FPL and voip.ms, but there is only 1 line port on this so I think I am limited to 1 voip provider. Sadly the cheaper pap2t and 2102 seem to support 2 lines so you can run 2 providers and you can have 2 calls going on simultaneously. This is a feature I wish the 3102 had.

Anyone know what benefit this fxo port is? I would assume most people buying a voip adapter like this are interested in ditching their local telephone POTS line and using a voip provider instead. Is the fxo port usefull for anything if I cancel my local telephone provider? Or is it only usefull if you are using both a local telephone provider pots line, and another voip provider?

Sorry for the newbish questions.

if you want FPL and voip.ms to ring the same phone then you bought the correct one. if you wanted it to ring separate phone then yea you bought the wrong one.

3102 and 2102

Other than one being better by a 1000, what is the real difference and limitations. I can get a 2102 cheap, and want to set it to a provider like phone power, but also to another for overseas, is this possible with the 2102? Can you guys direct me to a forum that talks about this stuff, or you guys are already a part of?

Thanks in advance

And why would I want to pay a monthly charge for an extra DID I don't need? Oh yeah, right

I don't.

i find one post OBI110 setting with Google Voice, Fongo, and Voip.ms http://www.crazypig.org/2012/05/14/obi1 ... d-voip-ms/
any one try this? it would be work?

Thanks for the information. That is my ultimate goal and also to create to option of callback feature with auto attendant so I can make cheap long distance calls from my cellphone. Still reading my head is about to explode. Already have a obi110 so looking at moving my phone number from Bell to FPL for local calls, voip.ms for international calling and setup gv for US calling.
