Change Ports

If your magicJack is plugged into your computer, switch the device to a different USB port. If your device is plugged into a router, switch the ethernet cable to a different ethernet port on the router.

Test Your Network Connection

Errors can be caused by low internet speeds or unstable network connections. We recommend using a broadband-equivalent (or better) connection with a minimum upload speed of 128kb/s.

You can test your internet connection speed at sourceforge.net/speedtest/.

Change Cables

If restarting your device did not resolve the issue, and you have confirmed you have a stable internet connection that meets minimum speed requirements, we recommend you replace the cables associated with your configuration:

  • Ethernet cable
  • Phone cable
  • Power adapter (if available)

Update Device Firmware

If all previous troubleshooting steps have failed, the device should be upgraded to the latest firmware. Click here for further information.

Contact Your Internet Service Provider

If you still receive an error even after the above steps have been completed, please contact your Internet Service Provider and request assistance with the following:

  • Opening ports 5060 through 5070 on your router/modem
  • Lowering the internal firewall on your router/modem

If you still experience issues, please contact our Customer Care team for further assistance.
