So I did find out that the GT286 does not have G.711u. At least it's not an option on the drop down menu that I could see. I only have G.729a/b which the HT286 config guide for FPL said should be set to PCMU as the first option and G.729a/b as the second option. Should I swap the G.729a/b as the first option and see if that works instead?
Could my problem be that the alarm companies need the G.711u protocol?
I changed my voip modem and alarm company so I can't tell you the difference. Sorry.
Here are the two type modems I tried and it's working with Protecton alarm system recently (this year) .
1. Grandstream HT502 (works with any ISP with internet connection, dsl or cable). I can't remember HT486 works or not. Someone tried HT486 and update us here.
2. Edgewater 200a or 200aw ADSL2+ modem + router combo. (This ONLY works with ADSL2+ connection up to 15m/1m. I use Freephonline in this modem to do alarm dialout only. Works great).
NOT WORKING devices I tested: Cisco/Linksys SPA1000/2000 , PAP2/PAP2T, SPA2102
