Faxing over VoIP

While it wasn't a very scientific test. Because I changed both my router and added the DSL filter, and the destination fax is different.

I just successfully set two faxes since making the changes.

Instead of, before, sending a 3 page fax taking 21+ minutes and failing on page 3...but enough made it that I got an email confirmation that they can start the process.

Just now I sent a 3 page fax via Lingo and Vonage. The Lingo one took 3:11 to send while the Vonage one took 1:43 to send.

Not sure what that says about Lingo versus Vonage....especially since Lingo is going to be where I'm going to park my fax machine. Lingo does distinctive for a little bit extra, I'll probably reimplement this solution for sharing voice and fax on a single line.

Only hitch in the process is my Vonage number is of the non-portable variety...and I really don't want all that hassle of telling the whole world about a new phone number. But, I have toyed with getting a Universal number in a different state or perhaps even a different that's what I'll probably get for Lingo.

WRT54GS w/Sveasoft and QoS == better latency

Well, one nice thing about the QoS/Wondershaper of the Sveasoft is that it has helped my ping times. As shown in my DSLreports line monitoring. - Line status

WRT54GS & Lingo

Well, I removed some of the wiring nest...and worked in the WRT54GS.

Everything went smoothly...the only tweaks afterwards mainly involved getting PRTG and WallWatcher working again.

With WallWatcher, the WRT54GS seems to log way more. Or perhaps the old router was just ignoring more. Though it could just be interface that logging is done at. One thing I started seeing was all the broadcast noise on the WAN interface. Guess it explains why the activity light on the Cable Modem is on solid, even when I'm not doing anything.

Dead Harddrive

Wouldn't you know it...the harddrive in my computer at work died this afternoon.

I managed to run chkdsk enough times to get it to boot finally...but things are serious messed up, that I can't log into my account and services won't start properly. The big problem right now is NTbackup is having I can't toss my data onto a tape.

Dell is supposed to be dispatching a new drive for Monday...though I'm on vacation on Monday...and so are a lot of other people. Our local IT person was out today as well.

But, there is supposed to be a ghost server, so that might have been something.

I'm probably gonna trundle in tomorrow and try copying some of my data onto network shares, and then shut it down until Tuesday.

New Linux Server

Well, the new (if you can call it that) server is up.

That's the Dell Optiplex GX100 I got off of eBay for like $35. Celeron 433MHz/128MB. The only upgrade I did to the box was drop in a 40GB drive that came out of one of my ReplayTVs. And, installed a version of SuSE on it.

I moved the role of DHCP server from my old linux box to this one, along with NTP. And, made it my master DNS server. I reconfigured my old DNS server to be the slave DNS. And, an NTP peer.

Minimal changes to the rest of my network. Next is to work the WRT54GS in, and setup the Lingo box. Might cleanup the network nest....

WRT54GS v1.1 is here

But, I don't know if I'll get around to playing with it before the weekend.

There are some home network changes I've been meaning to make that I need to get done before I start experimenting with the new router and the Sveasoft.

Lots of packages today

The 802.11g card for my notebook arrived. As well as, (another) new Fisher Telescoping Pen.

There's a UPS delivery notice, which is probably the pillow I ordered from Select Comfort. I'll pick that up after work.

Got notice that my Lingo package is on its way to me. No ETA from UPS yet.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
