X100P card does not detect incoming rings

I think I have installed a X100P card correctly on a Ubuntu Lucid desktop with stock asterisk:

localhost $ lspci -v -s 05:03 05:03.0 Communication controller: Motorola Wildcard X100P Subsystem: Efar Microsystems Device 0001 Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 17 I/O ports at 1000 [size=256] Memory at e2001000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel driver in use: wcfxo Kernel

Just to make sure, this is my output when I load wcfxo:

Dec 9 19:33:36 localhost kernel: [ 7212.942767] FXO PCI Master abort Dec 9 19:33:36 localhost kernel: [ 7212.948506] wcfxo: DAA mode is 'FCC' Dec 9 19:33:36 localhost kernel: [ 7212.948508] Found a Wildcard FXO: Wildcard X100P

Also, my card seems to be known to asterisk …

localhost $ sudo asterisk -rx 'dahdi show status' Description Alarms IRQ bpviol CRC4 Fra Codi Options LBO DAHDI_DUMMY/1 (source: HRtimer) 1 UNCONFI 0 0 0 CAS Unk YEL 0 db (CSU)/0-133 feet (DSX-1) Wildcard X100P Board 1 OK 0 0 0 CAS Unk YEL 0 db (CSU)/0-133 feet (DSX-1)

However after starting asterisk -rvvvvvvvvvvv and waiting patiently while an incoming call comes, I can here the ring on the pass-through phone but asterisk does not seem to detect anything.
I also tried looking with dahdi_monitor 1 -v but there was nothing either. Not sure whether there should have been.

At any rate, the card does not seem to detect incoming calls. Nor am I able to call out (although my grip on the asterisk originate command is even less firm than the above; who knows whether my extensions.conf is correct …)

Any help or pointers for diagnosis much appreciated.

[Or should I just ditch the card and spend much more money? I’d rather not since it’s only for a desktop-connected answer phone]


Can the people that sold you the card give you a few pointers?

Hi I just wondered how you go the card to show up in Asterisk. I have the same card and use Ubuntu Server 14.04LTS. I’m trying to install the x100p to use with Asterisk but I just get the Dummy card showing up. Thanks for any help with this.
