Re: netopia 3347-02-1006L

Thanks, guys....

I was familiar with all the things you both indicated and the port range refused for me as well.
I've never been comfortable using the DMZ for my setup.
I did have it set to clear sailing as the SPI firewall setting on any of the routers tends to interfere with the Voip from time to time. I use a 3rd party firewall with no problems.

I have never had a good result using a combo modem/router, especially with Voip that I have used exclusively for many years now.

With all my other modems and routers, I have no problems. For me, the Voip works flawlessly when I assign a fixed IP to the ATA and have the router point to it for the full port range indicated..

I guess like we all tend to do with spare time...try to conquer new frontiers and reinvent the wheel. My shelves are already cluttered with devices that I'll never live long enough to use. I will put the 3347s along with them.

Thanks once again....

Generally speaking separating the modem and the router are the better approach. This allows you to buy a modem once, put it into bridging mode and forget it until it breaks.

Then you can change routers until you get happy. I would imagine that there are some pretty strong SOHO type units that can handle just about anything. But for me I have gone with things like m0n0wall or pfsense running on rather meager PC type hardware or specifically for firewall type headless x86 units.
