There are countless complaints about Magic Jack on Google. Many of them focus on call quality and missed calls. Others cite the magicJack error 3002.
This is not surprising. With normal “landline” phone service, the customer is responsible for maintaining the phone and the cable that is connected to it. When the user encounters a problem, he makes sure the phone works by testing it elsewhere. If it works, he reports the problem to his phone company.
The Magic Jack-based phone system puts much more responsibility on the user. In addition to the Magic Jack device and the telephone handset, the system depends on the functionality of the user’s Internet connection and, for earlier MJ devices, on his computer system. The task of finding the exact error rests with the customer.
This error should inform the operator that the Magic Jack Plus cannot connect to the Internet. The following are methods are prepared by Techquack to resolve this error.
What Causes magicJack Error 3002
Firewall Failure: If you are using a third-party AV program with a firewall feature, it may be interfering with your Magic Jack. In this case, you should try uninstalling the third-party antivirus software package and see if that solves the problem.
Current TCP/IP mismatch: It turns out that one of the most common causes of this problem is IP or TCP mismatch. To solve the problem, simply reboot the router to force it to restore connections (including those involving the Magic Jack device).
MAC Filtering Enabled: If your router is configured to actively use MAC filtering, the Magic Jack device is an obvious target. In this case, you can either completely disable MAC filtering in your router’s settings or add it to the list of blocked MAC addresses.
Magic Jack Ports Blocked: On some routers, it is possible that the ports used by the Magic Jack for VoIP are actively blocked. In this case, the most effective way to fix the problem is to create a static IP and then use it as a DMZ in the router’s settings.
