How to transfer a call with the caller's caller ID?

by PisoiuFericit / May 12, 2015 5:56 PM PDT

Ok, first of all I hope I put it in the right category, I tried searching google and the user guide to my router, and did not find a solve. Tried calling the guys who host the pbx and they say it's my equipment and I should know how to configure it and they will not help me.

I have a RT31P2 linksys SIP adapter with 2 evolio C40 phones in one location, and in the second location a cisco SPA112 with a cordless phone attached. Extensions are given by a PBX hosted by Someone set this up and it ran for quite some time until I accidentally reset the linksys rt31p2(long story).

So, before the reset the phone rang in location 1 and someone answers and sometimes needs to transfer the caller to location 2, and they pressed flash#100 (100 being location 2's extension). The caller's callerID appeared on the cordless phone in location 2. Now, after I put all the settings back in the RT31P2 flash#100 no longer works, the caller is put on hold but the phone does not ring in location2. Someone said to try flash100# and that works but the caller ID appears as 102 on the screen of the phone in location 2. I need the caller ID to appear as the caller's ID.

Hope I was specific enough, I really don't know what I'm doing and am really gratefull to anyone helping me, I have searched trough the user guides, and google, and tried flash*100 like the user guide of the rt21pt says but that does not work.

The easiest would be to ask that "someone", who set it up initially. Or contact Linksys, maybe?

That someone is not helping me at the moment.

Do linksys have a place where one can ask questions?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
