Hi, I’m experiencing difficulty using horizon on my laptop for work phone calls. We’ve recently upgraded to hub 4. My internet connectivity is fine - normally connect via WiFi but have plugged directly into the the hub with an Ethernet cable too but still no joy. I can make calls, I can hear the caller but they cannot hear me.
Is there anything I can change in the hub settings - Horizon IT support have told me it’s an issue with virgin?
We had hub 3 previously but only worked from home since hub 4 installed so don’t know if it worked. Horizon said it should work without changing settings so I haven’t changed any settings.
When they found out I was with virgin they said that was the issue. They are happy to set up to my mobile phone to take calls but want to try to avoid this as it’s personal mobile and don’t want work calls on there.
on hub settings it says telephony disabled - could this be the issue.
virgin customer service said try wired connection and try disconnecting all other devices - hub 4 isn’t compatible with the connect app so I’m not sure how to disconnect everything - normally I’d isolate devices on the connect app!

That's for plugging a VOIP phone in directly to the Hub. I'm guessing your existing phone line is a wall socket.
You could try putting the Hub in modem mode and connecting just your laptop by cable. This will by pass all the Routing elements of the Hub. If it works. then it will confirm the Hub is not compatible. In that case, depending on your contracted speed, you could ask for a Hub 3. Otherwise just buy your own Router and keep the Hub 4 in Modem mode.
