PostPosted: Wed Aug 20, 2008 4:41 pm    Post subject: At wit's end: Other end cannot hear me well or at all Reply with quote Back to top

I am not technically inclined, but know my way around the computer for certain things. I have had Vonage for almost 2 years now but the last 6 months have been a nightmare with audio quality.

I use Brighthouse Roadrunner cable for my internet connection with a Webstar router, and the modem is a LINKSYS. My Vonage device is a VTech. I have the wireless phone. I have the Vonage device connected to the router, and the internet cable box connected to the router.

I have messed with my firewall settings previously and this does not help, and I have messed with the broadband saver feature several times. I had it set on normal and today switched back to high but nothing seems to work still.

I should also mention I turn off everything with the internet to talk on the phone to try and see if this helps and it does not. I have tried moving the base to different rooms but this also does not work.

Some calls start out fine, but then the longer I talk then they cannot hear me and start complaining. Sometimes they just cannot hear me at all. Today I received a few calls and they just said, if you can hear me call me back at so and so number. I tried calling back and they could not hear. This is a problem with ingoing and outgoing calls. Strangely I always hear them perfectly on "my" end.

Nothing has changed in the two years with my internet service or equipment. I need to figure out something fast as I cannot use the phone and it's getting to the point where I will need to cancel if I can' t get it working dependantly. I hate doing that as it is a good deal in terms of price, and if I can get it working again it would be great. I don't use the phone THAT much, but when I need it, I need it!

I ran my VOIPtest and here is what is says, I don't know what this means personally:

Two percent packet discards is moderately high. Please remove the router, plug your computer directly into the modem, and repeat the test. Please post the results for both to and from Boston.

You might want to repeat the test a few times with some time between to see if there is an intermittent issue.

Is it better for voice quality to be set at normal or higher? I do not choose highest as I do not have a souped up internet connection.

Is packets being moderately high a good or negative thing?

I hooked up the modem directly, and here are the results:

Media Quality
MOS
3.6 / 5.0
(Best with G.711 is 4.4)


Degradation Sources
Codec 0.57 40.2%

80kbps IP BW)

Packet Discards 2.7%

Yeah, I'd rather have a hard time hearing them myself. At least this way we know the phone isn't working. I have no way to tell unless they start going hello? hello? or hanging up on me. Or else just saying, boy your phone is breaking up, your phone ****, or what is wrong with your phone? Every one of those has happened to me with different calls this week alone lol

Yeah I even went and got a new phone. I have a hubby who is out of the country with military so our conversations mean a lot and him not being able to hear me is getting so frustrating. I hope to get some kind of help.

I know what you mean. Today I think one of the calls was a job place, I have been unemployed and really need work, but they couldn't hear me and kept hanging up. I was thinking of another phone but I'm broke. If the solution is to buy more equipment I would rather just cancel. Knowing my luck it wouldn't solve the problem anyway.

Packet loss is a negative thing. In the latest data it's up to 2.7%. You'll notice that the test reports that packet discards are responsible for 59.8% of degradation in your communication. Since you've connected your computer directly to the modem, it indicates that the problem is with your ISP (which includes the modem itself) rather than your personal LAN gear.

Please post the rest of the details listed in the sticky.
