This will fix all your obi issues if you are getting cut out, call drops, no calls....

You need to change your router settings and setup and VLAN and change the subnet mask on the obi so that it is on it's own subnet.

no more problems with it, and it doesn't fight for bandwidth anymore.


UPDATE: Try this fix before the subnet, this should fix 95% of all problems.
Force OBi to 100Mbit/Full duplex.

Hi kthejoker,

I'm trying what you said above, but I'm having trouble figuring out what you mean. I'm not very experienced with the terminology so I went into my router settings (medialink) to see if I could figure it out, but I'm having trouble matching up what you said with the options. Would you mind breaking it down as to how and which settings you changed? I'm experiencing dropped calls on every phone call (GV), and have tried several ideas (for changing the Obi settings) mentioned in these forums. So far, no fix.... however I'm thinking I need to change my router settings as I've already switched routers and that didn't help). I contacted Obi Support as well but they suggested hooking my obi110 directly up to the modem. This is not an option for me as I need to have it in my office (the modem is in a different room). If you could help me, I would be ever so grateful.

Thanks!

To expand on that, you need to do 2 things.

First, reprogram the obi, and make it FORCE connect 100meg/full duplex.  For some reason, the obis are only conencting to network devices at 10meg half duplex.  This should fix a majority of problems.

Force OBi to 100Mbit/Full duplex.

If that don't work, then put it on its own subnet.

All your normal lan on 255.255.255.0, then create a VLAN with 255.255.255.128
