I used to have a v1 Home Hub until the WiFi went a bit intermittent but those nice people at BT kindly sent me a v2A replacement. What I found was that, when using the phone socket on the back of the hub with DECT base station plugged in, landline calls became increasingly noisy after 2 or 3 days. Landline calls on a clockwork phone connected directly to the incoming line (i.e not via the home hub) remained fine. Restarting the hub immediately fixed the problem for another 2-3 days when the noise gradually reappeared again. A couple of replacement v2As had identical problems.
So I gave up with the phone socket and tried registering DECT handsets directly with the home hub. No more noisy landline calls. But the problem this time is that some of the DECT handsets would ring for a single cadence only.
After several marathon calls with the BT Broadband helpdesk, there seemed to be an admission that these were both known problems and they were fixed in home hub v2B which, after several false starts, I have just received.
But on the v2B I don't seem to be able to originate outbound SIP calls.
Finally to the point of this post:
1. Can anybody advise me how to get outgoing SIP calls to work on the home hub v2B ?
2. I could probably live with the v2A if I restarted it every day or two via a scheduled task. I've tried something like http://192.168.1.254/cgi/b/info/restart/?be=0&l0=0&l1=0&tid=RESTART&user=admin&password=admin but it leads to a page on which I need confirm the restart. Is there any way of forcing a restart of a home hub without human intervention?
