VoIP phone carries some problems. Below we mention them and their solutions:
If the VoIP provider appears to be unable for registering the IAD then you will not be able to receive the incoming calls. So if your VoIP phone has the voicemail features enabled then the call can be forwarded to voicemail. This facility can be taken from the VoIP provider by asking them for having so on your VoIP phone.
You may bump into the trouble of making calls even having a high-speed DSL connection because of the non-presence of dial tone. If you have a Linksys router or IAD, do see the light on the phone number 1. If you do not find any light then you should go for rebooting the IAD. If you find the light on number 1 turned on, connect the phone directly to the IAD sans any device or splitter.
Often the user stumbles upon the vague and full of distortion calls. This takes place because of the insufficient bandwidth and due to Internet’s overloading. Ask your ISP to have more bandwidth. Often you find the more compressed codec and by changing them a user may solve the problem.
An echo sound often irritates the ears. In this case, lower the volume to eliminate the problem.
Buzzing or sluggish noise disturbs a lot. Do check to see if the wireless phones are changed and there is no weak battery in the phone set.
