Prefered Encoder with Beta VOIP

I've used the service for the first time today and all seems well. I used to have problems connecting to the sip.plus.net server and sometimes it would drop the connection during a conversation - it'll be interesting to see how this fares.
I was wondering if anyone can advise as to which encoder would be the best to use with this service, I connect via a Grandstream 486 with 1.0.6.7 firmware.
thanks
Phil

Re: Prefered Encoder with Beta VOIP

The Gradwell support portal has a page for configuring the Grandstream range http://www.gradwell.net/support/grandstream
but it does not seem to mention codecs.
I use a Sipura SPA-1001. On the Gradwell page for configuring this ATA, they say:
"By Default we support the G711a or G711u Codecs but if you are using multiple phones on your broadband connection, or you have a low bandwidth internet connection, then in the Audio Configuration section we recommend you choose G729a as the Preferred Codec. This will allow the phone to use less bandwidth where possible.
Please note that if you wish to use G729a you will need to request that this codec is enabled for your extension."
I left my ATA at its default G711u setting (which is what I used for PlusTalk and still use for Sipgate.)

the sip setting for the beta version should be sip2.plus.net

Thanks for the info I'll check it out when I'm back next week.

Sorry, what I meant was that the sip.plus.net server did not provide me with a reliable connection and I'm hoping that the sip2 will be much better. I also used to experience intermittent "feedback" and am crossing my fingers that with a change of service it has now been rectified.
cheers
