Firmware Modem Alice Gate Voip 2 Plus Wifi Card

In this digital plug and play world, you would expect to order a digital based phone service such as VoIP, connect it to your local network and Internet connection and immediately have a dial tone. Most times this is indeed the case but occasionally, an incompatibility will occur between hardware (and software) in your communication path and your VoIP service may experience problems.

In this article we have collected information from some of the most well known service providers in the VoIP space and also from testing we have done internally at WhichVoIP.com in order to create a comprehensive list of over 270 modems and routers and their corresponding compatibility with VoIP. We view this page as a working document and one that can be updated over time. Please use the comment form on this page to let us know your findings so we can keep this page up to date.

Which Modems and Routers are Compatible with VoIP?

Buna ma numesc dany si doresc sa va intreb o sugestie,cum anuma sa minstalez modemul in romtelecon.Specific ca acest modem nu l pot comfigura cu comenziile 192.168.1. Ci ma gandesc ca doar cu comanda cmd as putea modifica parametri in care lucreaza romtelecom,mentionez ca nu i pot modifica vci-vpi adica nu pot sa pun pentru romtelecom 0.35.ce ma sfatuiti.va rog din suflet sa mi dati variante. SELCSG2/3 (Select Gate) software is a SES dedicated programming software application for programming the Select Gate Series products. This software has been uniquely designed so as not to interfere with other programs that may reside on the host computer. It is a free application (when downloaded) that allows users to make changes quickly to.

Find your modem or router in the list below to see if there are any known compatibility issues when using it with VoIP. We have structured this table so it indicates the make and model of a modem, router or firewall, whether it is compatible with VoIP and some accompanying notes. In terms of compatibility, we have tried to keep this to two options, compatible (thumbs up) and incompatible (thumbs down). This of course cannot be 100% accurate as there are many variables at play but is based on our findings from our internal testing and also from data gathered across the Internet.

You will see some common themes in this list of over 270 modems and routers across more than 60 different manufacturers. The most common problem is SIP ALG (Application Layer Gateway). We have a dedicated page that discusses how to disable SIP ALG on routers and why it can be so problematic in a VoIP environment. The real issue at hand is that many of the device manufacturers do not provide access to the SIP ALG setting and tend to have it enabled by default which can cause real problems. If you are seeing dropped calls, one way audio or general registration issues, we always recommend some investigation around SIP ALG. This may also be referred to by some device manufacturers as SIP transformation or SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection).

If you are having no success and your device is marked as incompatible below your best option may be to replace it with a compatible device. Another option is to place the device in question into DMZ or bridge mode so it is not affecting the SIP packets but in some cases, even in DMZ mode, issues can occur.

We now have a SIP ALG VoIP detector test as part of our VoIP testing suite. It may be worthwhile running this test and once done, look in the summary results to see whether ALG is on or off.

NVG510, NVG589, 3360, 2210No way to disable ALG (contact provider if need this as may be way to do it using Telnet but depends on ISP i.e. set ip alg sip-enable off). This causes calls to drop. Passthrough required to compatible router or replace.
NVG595Turn off SIP ALG (Firewall > Firewall Advanced). Add google DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) if using Polycom. May need to get ISP to add this for you.
SBG6580Disable ALG and ensure firmware is 3.3 or newer. Still some reports of issues but newer firmware should help.
Netopia 2000, Netopia 3000Disable ALG. Disable DNS proxy if using Polycom phones. Make sure firewall set to ClearSailing or lower, otherwise expect registration issues. Can use PuTTY to access SIP settings (e.g. set ip sip-passthrough off).

Netgear

R7000 Nighthawk, R8500 Nighthawk X8Disable SIP ALG and DoS settings. Also do not setup QoS. May still have some audio related issues or registration failures.
AC1450, RP114, FVS Series, JNR Series, JWNR Series, R4500, R6050, R6700, R6900, R7000, R7500 Nighthawk X4, R7900 Nighthawk X6, SRX/UTM (all models), WGT624, WNDR3400, WNDR3700 v2, WNDR3800, WNDR4000, WNDR4300, WNDR4500, WNDR4700, WNDR4720, WNR1000 v1, WNR2000 v1, WNR2500, WNR3500, WNR834B, WPN824, MR814, FVS318, FVG318Dropped calls and poor audio. Try updating firmware to see if ALG setting becomes available. Otherwise, replace.
7550Disable ALG and DoS. DMZ mode if still issues.
C3000, C3700, C6300, C7000, WCOM, CG814WG/T, CGD24GAudio problems and also dropped calls. Replace.
CG3000 (Comcast!)Problems even when in DMZ or bridged mode. Note that Comcast often brands this device and gives you no access to SIP ALG (some forums suggest Comcast SIP ALG can be disabled if you call them). Many problems reported with this device. Recommend replacing. Get a Motorola Surfboard modem (e.g. SB6141) and use your own router. Can then remove the Comcast rental fee for the modem. Will likely pay for itself within 6 months. I can personally attest to issues with CG3000 and spent way too many hours troubleshooting.
CGD24GIssues. Recommend pass-through to compatible router.

Pace

ModelCompatibilityNotes
PLC 3801HGV, PLC 5031NV, PLC 5168NV-110Disable attack detection and put into pass-through mode to better router. Consider adding custom service to all SIP traffic through on ports 5060 through 5080. Many models give no access to SIP ALG so unable to disable. Some phones will have registration issues (e.g. Polycom) due to the inability to add DNS servers. Bridge mode is not effective so even doing this and using another router will not guarantee success. Also recommend editing UDP session timeout to something higher (e.g. 600 seconds).

Quantum

Q1100, G1100Dropped calls. Also Busy Lamp Field (BLF) issues. Recommend DMZ to other router. No way to disable ALG.
