PostPosted: Tue Dec 20, 2005 9:44 pm    Post subject: Call quality when Windows 2003 server machine is on Reply with quote Back to top

My call quality is EXCELLENT when using Vonage and only 1 Mac is turned on, however I have a windows 2003 server with just a local apache webserver running, and the windows firewall on. My RTP300 router has the machine on lockdown.

As soon as my PC boots up, my call quality starts to drop and it sounds like a broken choppy conversation. What could be causing this? It only happens when that PC is on, and immediately starts breaking up when this machine is on. I have no services installed on the machine that could be causing any incoming or outgoing traffic.

My blue lights on the RTP300 are almost always solid, unless I know internet activity is happening.

Anyone else have this problem?

Any Windows Server broadcasts all the time. They are constantly looking for other computers on the network. Try turning the Browser service off. Are you running WINS? If so, turn it off and use HOSTS entries. (I assume this is a home network?)

I don't recall if I'm running WINS or not - how can I shut off the Browser service? just turn off WINS if it's on?

Go into services under the administrative tools. (may be computer management). Make sure the WINS (Window internet naming service) is not running. Make sure the service named Browser is not running. You might also want to google windows 2003 server and excessive broadcasts. Is your adapter behind your router? If so, the broadcasts from server will slow it down

By the way, why are you running server?

thank you very much for your help - i've tried these options, but i think it was something else - everything seems to be OK now.

i'm running server becuase i'm a web developer / designer and i'm currently struggling getting Apache::ASP to run on my OS X server.

PostPosted: Wed Dec 21, 2005 12:11 am    Post subject: Windows 2003 Server causing choppy voice Reply with quote Back to top

I have 2 sites with an IPSEC VPN between them and I have noticed the same. If I just run pings on the gateway, the response time is ~50ms. Then I unplug the ethernet cable from the W2K3 server and it falls to 9ms.

This doesn't happen all the time - just when the W2K3 server is doing certain things. But the odd thing is that the congestion it causes is way higher than the actual bandwidth being used. It appears that bandwidth usage is ~600Kbps, but the congestion makes it seem like 3.5MBps.
