Re: Upgrading Firmware on Thompson DCM475 I changed my network yesterday with a new router and switch.
The switch links the desktops in the living room and ties it to the router in the basement that has a dual band wireless network and gigabit ethernet speeds.
The VOIP connects to the Netgear router directly this time.
Before it was two routers and this caused some issues on latency because the routers were slower and placed together so they delay the packets a bit, with the VOIP on the basement router.
The new router I got I can configure the QoS priority on the VOIP so it uses less bandwidth most likely.
Gigabit routing also works from this desktop to the modem.
