    step 17.

Warning: If it continues to not save all the changes, you can try resetting the
Linksys to factory default by holding the reset button on the back for 5 seconds. If this also
does not work, the firmware version of your Linksys Router may be out of date. Visit out
ftp site at and download the procedure How to:
Upgrade the Linksys RT31P2 Firmware.doc.

19. Select Line 2
20. With three exceptions, change all the same settings as step 17. (See Fig. 3). The three
    exceptions being:
    A. SIP Port: 5060 (Same as line 1)

        G711u and Use Preferred Codec only. (Step m) set to No.
21. Click Save settings. Make sure to check that all your changes have been saved
(Refer to step 18)
22. Go to the tab SIP and change RTP Packet Size from default of 0.030 to 0.040.
(See Fig. 4)

Note: If all phone calls work and fax only works intermittently after you install and test the
Linksys, you can increase the RTP Packet Size in increments of 0.01 until the fax either
starts working or you reach a packet size of 0.15. If the fax is still having problems you may
have a fax incompatibility issue. Some newer & expensive faxes are not lenient enough to
allow FoIP (Fax over Internet Protocol).
23. Click on Save settings
24. This should conclude the set-up of your Voice router.
25. Dialing string will be 00 + Country code + Number

Note: If the calls are not working, one of the first things to check is if the lines are
registered with the SIP Gateway. Look under the Info tab on the Voice
Admin page to see if Line 1 and 2 have been registered with the Sip gateway
(See Fig. 5). If they are not registered, wait for five minutes and try again. If they still do
not register, check your settings including password on both line 1 and 2. If all settings are
correct, contact the WaveCall Support Team for assistance.
