This is my first encounter of OBi 110 originally my thoughts were about the character in the likes of OB One Kanobi of Star Wars. My Dad asked me to talk the agent of our telephone service provider.
Originally I was tasked to assist the telephone service representative to configure my old man’s Outlook desktop . For the past few weeks my Dad had certain issues in sending out his email to friends and family after experiencing a really bad thunder storm.
We were able to isolate my Dad’s problem and fix the issue but before hanging up . The representative asked me if I had additional concern.
I blurted out that yup pointing out my siblings from the US were having issues calling up receiving incoming calls at our end. Okay exclaimed the agent from PLDT asking me what I see. I pointed out we have a Medialink router connected to a Zyxel modem and a Panasonic VOip phone and a device called OBi110.
Okay nuff said the phone representative pointed out the OBi 110 is not included in the service plan. I was advised instead to get in touch with OBtalk from the US for further assistance. End of story….
Somehow I wished I paid extra attention to my big brother who arrived last year in 2015 while he was setting up the system.
So for the next few hours I will try to figure out what’s causing the problem. Crossing my fingers ..hopefully. First things first is to read up and research about OBi110.
