My Billion 7404VNPX default timeout is 3600 (out of the box). I bought it new about 4 months ago.
The router has two VoIP ports, each of which can be configured separately from the other.
I changed one port to 1800, as required by Engin, my backup VoIP provider.
On the other port, I tried 240, as per Exetel's instructions, then changed it to 1800, but my outgoing
calls are still timing out if unanswered within about 35 seconds of dialling the first digit.
It usually takes me two or three attempts to achieve a successful connection, except if the
person on the other end answers very quickly. In that case, I only have to try once.
Also, if I have to redial when the first attempt fails, after the 15 seconds, I often hear a lot of noise
on the line instead of a ring tone from the other end. On the third attempt, I can usually connect
Prior to the VoIP server problem of the last two weeks or so (the original subject of this thread), my
outgoing calls were timing out if they were unanswered within about 1 minute and 15 seconds after
dialling the first digit.
I should also add that after the dialling process is complete, it takes about 15 seconds before I hear the
number ringing at the other end.
Furthermore, I have no such problems making calls with my Engin VoIP account, only with my Exetel VoIP
Now, I have no idea whether or not the timeout on the router has any bearing on this, but if anyone can
explain it to me, I'd be most interested to learn about it.
What is the timeout for, anyway? What is it that times out? Registration, or, if not, what is it?
Best regards to all
