The old phone lines have been phased out in my area and now they connect via the internet router (VoIP), I’ve plugged the BeoLine Mk2 into the hub, making external calls is fine but nobody can phone me, rings once their end not mine then drops the call, I’ve tried a ADSL Filter with no joy, hopefully there’s a solution because I love my BeoCom 6000’s and BeoCom 5’s it’ll be sad to see them moth balled

Suggestion: Name your carrier & location, and the CPE model number. Thus someone knows if their experience might be helpful to you.
An experiment you could try is substituting an old bell ringer phone, or even a moderately-old AT&T slimline. Does that work? Then parallel it with your Beoline. Does that work? “Their end not mine drops the call” implies that something on your end is picking up and immediately hanging up, though it’s not clear where in the chain that something is. A DSL filter added should both be unnecessary anymore, and should make no difference, which it doesn’t, so that’s good at least.

I once had that problem. I solved it by restarting the modem while BeoLine connected to it.May 2, 2022 at 11:31 pm #4642
Thank you trackbeo for your reply, I’m in the United Kingdom and with a provider called Virgin Media using their Hub 4, tried the suggestions with no prevail, seen a lot of people having the same issue in the UK on forums when switching from the old phone lines to VoIP, managed to resolve it tonight if anyone has the same issue in the future…
– Unregister all phones
– Unplug BeoLine PTSN
– Plug back in
– Register Phones
Fixed the issue

Thanks for letting us know that the problem is solved. It’s useful to know that Beocoms connected direct to routers/hubs are still likely to work when UK switches off the analogue (copper wire) phone network in 2025. I hope to still be using my Beocom 6000s 😀October 13, 2022 at 5:46 pm #9673PaulBRONZE Member
Hi, I have the same Beocom 6000 PSTN setup as isthat the bedtime. Plus a BeoTalk 1200 connected to a Virgin Media master phone line socket. Well-matched was last week, now I am connect to the hub via voip. I gave exactly the same issues.
Would it be possible to provide step by step instruction, as I have not changed my phone stuff for 10+ years.
Fingers crossed I can keep using this great kit.

Hi Paul I’ll do my best
step 1. Go into menu
step 2. Scroll to Base
step 3. Scroll to Remove Handset and click ok
step 4. Unplug PTSN Line for at least 2 seconds
step 5. Plug the PTSN Line back in… the light should flash green indicating it’s ready for registration
step 6. The BeoCom handset should say register to base… click okay
step 7. The base should then come up on the display… click ok to register
hopefully that should be everything
hope that fixes the issueAugust 14, 2023 at 5:42 pm #23011
To Isthatthebeotime: I have the same problem having been switched by Virgin to their fibre service using their Hub 3. I have an old Beocom 600o PTSN (c. 1997) but trying this didn’t work for 3 Beocom 6000 MK1’s and one Beocom 6000 Mk2. I’ve now tried to use a Beoline 2 with the Beocom 6000 Mk2 without success. Were you plugging into the Hub 3 directly or via the Virgin provided adaptor? I would be interested if this worked for Paul as well or others? Many thanks

Although I don’t have experience of the Virgin Hub, I think that the problem here may be an incompatibility with the wiring of the RJ11 lead.
Both my Beoline (Type 1130GB) PSTN and my BC6000 PSTN use RJ11 pins 3 and 4 for the phone connection (the latter from the LINE socket of the little black 3-way adaptor*). These connections are normally routed to pins 2 and 5 of the BT plug/socket, which works fine.
I think that most UK telephones use RJ11 pins 2 and 5, and perhaps the Virgin Hub 3 telephone socket expects this. Thus you may not be able to connect your B&O RJ11 direct into the Hub’s telephone socket.
Try using you original RJ11 lead into your original RJ11 to BT adaptor and then use the Virgin-supplied BT to RJ11 adaptor to connect to the Hub.
* My 3-way adaptor is the version without the white spot – on the right in the picture below:
You can see that the version without the white spot has the LINE connections close together – RJ11 pins 3 and 4.
In the version on the left with the white spot, the LINE connections are further apart – RJ11 pins 2 and 5. If you have this version then let me know and there is something else we can try!
(As you view the socket, RJ11 pins are numbered right to left 1 through 6, but pins 1 and 6 are not used in this application).
For info, on the BT plug the pins are also number 1 through 6, with pin 1 being nearest to the locking lever.August 18, 2023 at 9:13 pm #23138
That’s something which originally did think may have been the issue but managed to solve with trial and error despite thisAugust 19, 2023 at 6:59 pm #23147
Many thanks for your input.. My Beocom 6000 PSTN connector is as per your illustration on the left with the white dot & the line connections further apart. The Beoline (113068 GB) RJ11 plugs into a B&O adaptor with the pins close together – 3&4 from your description. Further attempts to use the Beoline direct & via Virgin adaptor have failed.
If Isthatteh beotime looks in again has anyone else fed back to him on success with his sequence?
Many thanks bothNovember 1, 2023 at 10:34 pm #25606
Well, I have solved the issue of Beocom 6000 not accepting incoming calls after enforced switch by Virgin to phone over fibre via their adapter by moving away from Virgin. I’ve ported my home phone to a separate VOIP provider – https://www.voipfone.co.uk/ – others are available. Using a generic VOIP adapter/gateway the whole Beocom system functions seamlessy again – despite using a very old PSTN base. Virgin take note
