Config Info: Obihai OBi-110 ATA 1 of 2

Hey FPL Colleagues:

I read the reviews of FPL at DSL Reports and decided to take the plunge. My review at DSL reports won't go up until I've stress-tested the system.

I read the on-line reviews of the Obihai OBi-110 and its smaller sibling, the OBi-100, and decided to test an OBi-110 in conjunction with FPL.

The first challenge: if you purchase the OBi-110 or OBi-100 from Amazon.com (.com not .ca) it won't get shipped to Canada. Don't know why -- and don't really care except it involves one more step. Have the device shipped to a friend / relative in the good ol' US of A and then have it transshipped via UPS. It adds about $28 to the price -- but I believe in the long run it'll be well worth it.

STEP 1:
I presume you can read the instructions which come with the OBi-110 / OBi-100 about what plugs in where.
However, to summarize (I purchased an OBi-110 so I'll use this going forward; the OBi-100 is identical for purposes of these instructions):
#1. Plug in the supplied RJ-45 cable to the OBi-110 and plug the other end of the cable into your router. I have a D-Link DIR-615 with 4 wired ports of which 2 were free. The other two router ports have D-Link Gigabit Ethernet DGS-1008D switches / hubs attached.
#2. Plug the supplied telephone cable into the PHONE jack on the OBi-110 and the other end into your telephone handset
#3. If your router is set up for DHCP as soon as you connect the power (standard 12 V adapter) the device should receive an IP address
#4. Check that the POWER and PHONE LEDs are SOLID GREEN, and that the ACTIVITY LED flickers periodically
#5. Perform an echo test of the Obihai unit (using the OBiTALK network) by dialing **9-222-222-222
Alternatively you can make a test call by dialing **9-333-333-333 followed by the outgoing number

IF THE ABOVE IS SUCCESSFUL, YOUR OBIHAI DEVICE IS WORKING AND YOU CAN MOVE ON TO THE NEXT STEP

STEP 2:
#1. I don't like random IP addresses, so I configured the OBi-110 to have a static IP address. This can be done on the device itself by following the voice prompts. To enter a "period" press the "star" key on your phone handset. I gave my OBi-110 a fixed IP address of 192.168.0.188
#2. To make sure the router is on the same page, I logged-in to the D-Link DIR-615 and mapped the OBi-110's MAC address to the IP address above

AND NOW THE FUN BEGINS

STEP 3:
#1. If you haven't already, purchase the SIP "key" from FPL -- $50.00 plus HST ($56.50)
#2. The e-mail will contain 3 items of info:
1. The Server Name (FPL calls it a "Realm"): voip.freephoneline.ca
2. Your User Name (the FREE DID telephone number you signed up for): 1AAAXXXNNNN (Your Number Goes Here)
3. Your Password (unique to you; this is the SIP "key"): 12345678 (Your Password Goes Here)
#3. Log in to the web configuration for the OBi-110: http://192.168.0.188 using the default admin user name and password

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please note that in order to change the settings, you need to Uncheck the "Default" box on the right hand side.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#4. Navigate to "System Management --> Network Settings"

#5. As you see from the screen capture, you need only to enter the "Local Time Zone" -- and this isn't critical to the functioning of the Obi-110 with FPL. It does help if you care about accurate call logs.
#6. Click on "Submit" and you will be prompted to reboot the OBi-110. Go ahead and do so as it takes less than 30 seconds.


STEP 4:
#1. If prompted, log in to the web configuration for the OBi-110: http://192.168.0.188 using the default admin user name and password
#2. Navigate to "Service Providers --> ITSP Profile A --> General"

#3. As you see from the screen capture, you need only to enter the "ITSP Name" Please confirm that "SignalingProtocol" shows "SIP" as the Default.
#4. Click on "Submit" and you will be prompted to reboot the OBi-110. Go ahead and do so.


STEP 5:
#1. If prompted, log in to the web configuration for the OBi-110: http://192.168.0.188 using the default admin user name and password
#2. Navigate to "Service Providers --> ITSP Profile A --> SIP"

#3. As you see from the screen capture, you need only to enter the "ProxyServer" name. Enter "voip.freephoneline.ca" without the quotes.
#4. Click on "Submit" and you will be prompted to reboot the OBi-110. Go ahead and do so.

Any official howto from guys from Fongo (like this one -> viewtopic.php?f=15&t=5366)? I have both ATA (obi110, Grandstream HT-701) and the obi110 has lots of settings which can be tweaked. The sound seems to be better with Grandstream. I followed the FONGO_steve's tutorial.
It would be great to get feedback & tips from Fongo about obi110 how to set it up.
Thank you.

PS: I can provide screenshots of the web UI if it helps.
