What were your zapata gain settings before you started tweaking them?

As far as gain goes -- what about the Polycom phone? Are you using the
defaults from the SIP firmware package?

Do you have other analog extensions connected to the line? I had a
situation in which there was audible humming because there was a fax
machine connected to the analog line between the Asterisk server and the
demarcation point.

Where is the Asterisk server located?
