Hello, I have a strange problem that's robbing my sleep lately. I purchased a new Linksys PAP2T and connected my wired phone (actually a fax/phone) and configured it ok. Incoming calls would ring and dial tone was ok.
I then disconnected this fax machine and connected an older, unused Philips Xalio DECT phone. Now the phone rings normally, but I can't pick up the line (no dial tone). I have it configured on Line 1 and the LED on the PAP2T is lit as if everything is ok. I tried to modify the options in the web based config but to no avail.
I reset the PAP2T with the other phone back to factory settings, still no success. I tried different solutions found on the web (eg: Trapezoid vs. sinusoid waveform, ecc.), but I'm at a loss now...
Here are the specs: - Linksys PAP2T connected to a local Asterisk/Trixbox box (192.168.1.91), online and correctly set up - Phone is a Philips Xalio TD6200 DECT cordless, plugged in Line 1, LED ok. The phone is ok when connected to landline POTS - router is a Linksys WRTG54G but that shouldn't be an issue since it's on LAN
Thank you very much in advance. -Fabrizio

Hello and thanks for the reply. I tried a regular phone as stated and it was ok - incoming ring tone and outgoing dial tone was fine. The problem is within the DECT cordless device. I tried all possible combination of FXS polarity but still no improvement.
