We recommend setting your Codec 1 setting to G.711ALaw unless you wish to save bandwidth in which case you can select G.729 as your preferred codec.
Set DTMF Mode to RFC2833
Set the Fax codecs to T38 as Codec 1 if you are plugging in
a Fax machine

This final step is important as your phone will not work unless you tick the Voice check box under your Internet settings.
