Re: [Home Network] How do I maximize my modems potential? I have a couple of 3347's around and from time to time try one to replace my 2210...which hasn't failed since the bad ones were culled out years ago.
I am not a gamer but use VOIP as my only phone service along with having my ATA behind my router with NAT.
I tried every type of connection with the 3347 in bridged mode but never improved what I have now...6 meg down service that actually nets about 5.80.
I have the router send VOIP to the ATA with a fixed IP while forwarding the ports. In the past, the only reliable way to guarantee VOIP was to disable the SPI and SIP ALG. I was never convinced that the so-called router firewall did anything. The routers function really only routes correctly to each computer. That's why I always have a software firewall also engaged.
Does anyone have a similar setup and have they found a way to improve what I am getting?
