Computers, Software & Accessories / Re: Losing DNS server connection
« Last post by EV607797 on July 18, 2021, 02:26:22 AM »
Upon further research, I found that most of my other IP devices were associated with fixed IP addresses, rather than URLs.  Maybe that's why this laptop, the only device using Windows and URLs, was having trouble.  It appears as if was a DNS server issue.  I changed my DNS server's IP in this device's adapter settings to and it works fine now.  I'm still stumped as to why this happened, but it always seems that something goes awry after a Windows update.
Computers, Software & Accessories / Losing DNS server connection

I have one device, a laptop using Windows 10, that just started losing DNS server connection.  All other devices in the home work just fine.  I did a hard power reset of the modem (battery removed) and nothing changed.  I just chalked it up as a cable provider issue, which is quite common around here.  Today, after about 24 hours, I went into the router and reset it that way.  It worked and I got internet access on this laptop long enough to last about one session.  It is now gone again and I'm using a tethered connection to my cell.

My laptop shows that I'm connected to network, but with no internet access.  This is via wired or WiFi access. Because all of my other devices (about 17 of them) all seem to function just fine, I'm pretty sure that it's something in this laptop.  I will shamefully admit that it is still receiving automatic updates.  Each time that I shut it down, I go through the dreaded 'Windows update' procedure.  At this point, I believe it's the only computer that I have doing this and I'll be sure to fix it.

Because I have NO problem connecting to my LAN, or to the internet via my cell's hotspot feature, I'm pretty sure that my laptop has become yet another victim of Windows.  I mentioned earlier that I also lost spell check after an update.  Could this be that they are just trying to speed along the demise of W10?  It's just strange that it works fine on my hotspot, yet is dead in the water when connected via wired or wireless LAN.

Any suggestions?
Nortel / CS1K setup Peer to Peer Sip Trunk?
« Last post by matherton on July 15, 2021, 09:26:08 AM »
Has anyone set up Peer to Peer sip trunking on a CS1K?  I'm trying to get Bell Canada to engage on setting up a sip trunk to a Grandstream PBX.  (gone are the days of northern electric where they would be hell yeah we can do that)

We are trying to set up a peer to peer to a grandstream because its an integration to a nurse call system.  CS1K is coming out next year so this is an interm step until that happens, but the old nurse call is failing daily and we need that replaced.
Any experience on setting up peer sip trunks?

You'd have to have a router capable of it, but you could put her on a separate vlan and therefore a different subnet.

Hal,  being on the same network opens you up to Hacking if She gets hacked .
Many of my customers provided a separate internet circuit to work from home.  Protecting the home network from the company network.

Marty, we do it all the time.  We actually have one in progress right now so that the customer can add SIP trunks.  We also do this frequently for existing systems to support IP phones.

Figure this out. The company that my wife used to work for had their computers hacked. Nothing to see there right? Well, apparently it was the IT company that maintains their computers and server that got hacked. I'm guessing that because the IT company maintains remote administration of their server that that's how it spread.

I'm wondering if the IT company didn't get hacked directly, one of their other clients did and it spread to them... or the hackers know that IT companies are stupid enough maintain open links to their clients and had a field day.

That got me thinking. My wife now works out of my office on a computer provided by her company. I know their IT company can remote into her computer any time (as a matter of fact I encourage her to call them instead of me). The only thing we share is my network printer.  Wondering about this because she is on the same network with my machine although there is no communication between them.

Panasonic / TDA Cab - TDE MPC card - compatible?
« Last post by matherton on July 12, 2021, 03:56:40 PM »
For my lab, I have an older TDA100 cabinet with processor and a number of cards.  We removed a TDE100 from a site but I didnt have room for the TDE cabinet in my suitcase to bring home.  Is the cabinet / backplane the same/compatible - can I just swap in the TDE processor into the TDA cabinet?
My Panasonic experience starts with the NS series so I have no real experience on the older cabinets.
