Can't get them to load their config filesUnfortunately, you picked one of the hardest to configure ATAs that you could possibly find. They are configurable, however. I have two here myself that I bought for grins, and I did get one working once. Good news is, several of us here and on the C*NET list have made them work, so there's help here for you on this aspect, too.

I assume that's $34 plus shipping which brings it up to around the $45 to $50 area. That's about right, some sellers sell them that way, some sell them around $50.00 with free shipping.You just plug them into your network, access them via a web browser from any computer on your network, put in the extension number and password for each port, and you're done! (There's lots of other options you can change, like dialed digits accepted, ringing options, but you don't have to do any of that to get running.)Call me if you need help. That goes for anyone with questions about Grandstream ATA's, FreePBX and Asterisk, 1A2 key systems and Western Electric phones.Remember, at Los Angeles Telephone, our motto is, "If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong!"
Quote from: Brinybay on May 06, 2012, 12:35:54 PMIf I hooked up to C*Net, and somebody tried to call me via C*Net, does it show up on the caller ID? I don't use the Xlink anymore, I have a POTS line.
Quote from: DavePEI on May 06, 2012, 12:44:02 PMabout dialing international numbers on C*NET. I tired to call John Mulrane in Ireland today whose number is listed in the directory and in my logs after a call he made here - is there a prefix which needs to be included before the number, e.g. 011, or 010 when dialing?
Quote from: Adam on May 06, 2012, 01:07:43 PMTo do other C*NET country codes, you need an outgoing C*NET route just like the other one, but one that does not append 1 to the outgoing number. Your access code for this route could be 011, so, for example, to dial Ian Jolly's speaking clock, you'd dial (without the spaces)011 44 352 8081
Quote from: twocvbloke on May 06, 2012, 09:19:30 PMHere's a question, if someone has a UK-type number, and wants to call another UK-type number, do they have to use the access codes, or is it just like dialling within one's own country as per regular phone lines?
