Lately our outgoing calls have been getting worse and worse, with people unable to hear us, choppy and/or garbled audio. Up until tonight, I'd had the Linksys running behind the Buffalo in a DMZ with no QoS. When configured that way, I got a 4.2 on the testyourvoip.com test. Now, I'm getting the above. I've enabled QoS on the Linksys, but it's set at 512Kbs. Should I set that to 300kbs so it's more within my upload range?

This is, of course, one of those intermittent problems which can happen at any time of the day. Could it be the Webstar modem? I thought I read on the forums somewhere that I need a certified DOCSIS 2.0 modem, and I believe this is only certified for 1.1. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Patrick

It looks like you have a good deal of packet discards which is similar to what I am seeing.

You noted in your subject that you are having outbound issues, so inbound is ok? Reason I ask is that I am having the same issue. Outbound had been poor at best, inbound - perfect!

I have a Linksys BEFCMU10, which is currently loaded with 1.0.9 of the firmware (DOCSIS 1.0). My ISP has *recommended* a 2.0 compliant modem, but they have stated that they will gladly *support* my 1.0, and my Vonage service works perfectly.

The rest of the Vonage-supplied Linksys router has given me no end of heartache, but the Vonage part works GREAT.

2.0 would probably help, but I'd call your ISP with that packet discard info and ask them what to do. They might give you a loaner 2.0 modem (or replace it if you are renting their gear) to help diagnose the problem, if they think it's modem-related.

Also, if you have a router, try pypassing it and making your connection straight from a computer to the Modem. See if that changes your numbers...

Thanks for the replies. Of course, now that I've screwed with my network, I can't remote into it today. So, I will try straight from the modem tonight. And, yep, this is only outbound traffic. Inbound has always been fine.

Anyone know what the difference is between inbound and outbound? Why inbound would always be perfect but outbound poor? I posted this in another thread "On way calls". I was curious if it has to-do with the codec. I have mine set to 50 but it seems that people tell me when I call them I sound far away. But if it is an inbound call, they say I sound perfect.

Not trying to jump in with that ? in this thread but it seems as if your problem and mine seem related and I don't understand how inbound differs from outbound.

Thanks everyone!

I'm also on Comcast, and although I have a modem certified for DOCSIS 2.0, Comcast network is still running DOCSIS 1.1, they haven't yet gone to 2.0. So my 2.0 certified modem is on 1.1. By the way, you can get to a set of status pages for most cable modems at http://192.168.100.1/

So if your modem is dropping too many packets, a new modem might solve the problems, but not because its DOCSIS 2.0.
