Re: Can't call out - Billion 6404VGP

Here's what I get when trying to upload it:

The extension html is not allowed.
The upload was rejected because the uploaded file was identified as a possible attack vector.

Re: Can't call out - Billion 6404VGP

Why would an incorrect config first work and then stop working, without change? And then work again, with the only change being that from routed to bridged config? I need you to clarify first, is it just the phone that stops working or you lose internet? As I wrote: the same problem as before - jus...

Why would an incorrect config first work and then stop working, without change? And then work again, with the only change being that from routed to bridged config? I understand that there are no QoS (or any other) settings to be made on a bridge, just wondering whether the 6404 does the right thing ...

Re: Can't call out - Billion 6404VGP

It was just the same problem as before, that I could not call out. I didn't make any changes whatsoever, it just stopped working.
I guess the next thing I'll have to look at is QoS, or is that handled automatically by the 6404?

Cheers,

Ronald

Re: Can't call out - Billion 6404VGP

True. And it feels crap when things stop working again, for no apparent reason. Back to bridged mode, then, and after some to and fro (reset, re-enter, restart, etc) it works again. Will see how it survives some use & power cycles but as of now I don't feel too excited about giving up my landline ju...

Re: Can't call out - Billion 6404VGP

Working now.
For future reference: "DTMF Method" needs to be set to "RFC 2833".

Re: Can't call out - Billion 6404VGP

Ok, I don't know what changed, but for whatever reason the connection works now.
(I believe I had a typo in the name server address...)

Still can't call out, though - calling in works.
So with that one the problem seems to be the 6404.
Any ideas what to check for?

Cheers,

Ronald

Re: Can't call out - Billion 6404VGP

Same thing as with Windows.
In fact not much to configure there - just the service name, user name and password, computer plugged directly into the modem.
To me it basically just confirms that the problem doesn't seem to be caused by the 6404, because the result is the same.

Re: Can't call out - Billion 6404VGP

When applying that change, the router writes it to flash and then restarts. No, I didn't have Internet anymore afterwards. Not even from the 6404 or my Mac through a PPPoE connection.

Re: Can't call out - Billion 6404VGP

I also tried to make a PPPoE connection directly from my computer but also got the message that "no PPPoE service was found" or similar. ok, if the 7300 is in bridged mode you won't get internet until you establish an internet connection via the 6404 or your PC, best way to test it if you are using...

Re: Can't call out - Billion 6404VGP

Hi jok11n, Thanks for the advice and the links. I tried that and the 7300 seems to connect ok, however the 6404 then just sits there and says "Attempting to Connect" but never finishes doing that. (Using "WAN Type: PPPoE".) I also tried to make a PPPoE connection directly from my computer but also g...
