PostPosted: Mon Dec 26, 2005 1:10 pm    Post subject: Problems after switching to FiOS and Dlink DI-604 Reply with quote Back to top

I'm looking for feedback from people using Vonage with FiOS. I recently made the switch from Optimum Onlne and a Netgear router to FiOS with a DLink DI-604 and ever since have had problems with my Cisco ATA establishing a connection resulting in no dialtone. Rebooting the ATA rarely solved the problem; it seemed that it would take several reboots before I would get dialtone again and that was short-lived as the connection would go dead after a few hours. I tried putting the ATA on the DMZ with no luck.

I've tested bandwidth and latency and the connection is outstanding. I've yet to notice that I was losing connection to the internet. I've even monitored the logs on the DI-604 and see nothing to indicate the connecton going down there either.

I had Vonage support on the phone and was just about to throw my ATA out the window when i realized that it seemed like after a reboot that it would take a minute or more before it pulled a DHCP address from the router, although the light on top of the Cisco indicated it had allready made connection to the network.

So as a test I put the Netgear router between my ATA and the DI-604. (ATA -> Netgear ->DI-604 -> FiOS) I set a static address on the WAN side of the Netgear and configured the DI-604 to put that address on it's DMZ. Now I can boot my ATA up and it connects pulls an address from the Netgear and connects to the network immediately.. Viola! I've got dialtone. I've only just done this, so I don't know if I'm going to loose it after a while, but things are better so far.

Anyone else have any successes or failures with FiOS or the DI-604?

I have been using Vonage over FIOS for about 2 months now with very good results. Crystal clear audio even when browsing and downloading. This has been through the WRTP54G directly connected to the FIOS box. I have 4 computers/devices connected wirelessly and 2 connected wired. I previously had a WRT54G v1.1 connected and it worked very well as well.

Some observations:

1. Some issues with CID as everyone here has seen. Seems to work fine now with the .58 firmware update.
2. Others report that when they call us and we pick up there is a slight delay before we can hear them. This is something along the lines of us saying "hello" and them having to say "hi" twice before we pick it up. Not a big whoop.
3. On ocassions we have noticed some latency when starting to browse the internet after a period of inactivity. I am not sure if this is an issue with the Vonage/Linksys router switching over its QoS or something like that.

Just for grins I recently purchased a WRT54GX4, just to play with the enhanced wireless performance *and* to isolate the phone function of the WRTP54G. I hooked the WRTP being the GX4 and experienced intermittant (like every second) pulsing outages in both inbound and outbound audio. This was with QoS settings set to High on the GX4 for the voice device.

I have not messed with this for a couple of days now, and service directly through the WRTP54G continues without issue. I do not know if this is just an issue with the GX4 (that will be resolved by some firmware update sometime) or if I need to explore options involving the GX4's firewall, or a DMX setup as you indicate.

I don't know as much about this as I should, but I assume that putting the WRTP in the GX4's DMZ will bypass the NAT/SPI firewall checks, and perhaps clear up any interruptions that the GX4 may be introducing?

I plan to give this a shot early this afternoon, and will post what occurs.

yes the SPI firewall on these GX routers causes exactly the pulsing, throbbing audio you described. Disable the firewall to alleviate this issue.

I just finished playing with this thing again, and *did* end up eventually disabling the firewall, which (as ColdGin indicates) eliminates the pulsing audio issue.

Okay, so the next obvious question is: "Is there something else that can be done short of disabling the whole firewall?" I hate to have the entire HW firewall down. Is this something which I should expect Linksys to fix at some point or is it a special feature of these GX routers?

Instead of disbaling the firewall you can forward the ports to the Vonage router they are:

5060-5061- Voice traffic for the Motorola MTA's

69 - DNS

53 - TFTP port (to register and get XML updates)

123 (Caller ID port Smile

10,000-20,000 - Main Voice traffic ports

These are all UDP protocols.

I would reccomend all these be forwarded.

Ok, 5061-5061 are NOT voice traffic -- they are SIP which ONLY initiates and ends the call and sends CID info.

69 is NOT DNS it is TFTP.

53 is NOT TFTP it is typically used to DNS

123 is NOT caller ID -- Caller ID info is transmitted via SIP

10000 - 20000 are not even used .. only 10050 - 10150

Also you should not need port fowarding, the device sends the request outbound first, which created an entry in the routing table which then lets the traffic right back.

yeah I was doing this off a pure memory and got the ports mixed up. But still forwarding this ports in the past has worked, or just completely turning off the firewall

Agreed. Turning off the firewall is the best solution

there was some post on here about a customer who had an MTA behind his GX router who had gotten it to work with the firewall on, it was all a question of turning the firewall off, connecting the MTA and then enabling the firewall, something like that. I'd just leave the firewall off, the processor on these routers is woefully underpowered to do real SPi

The wireless range is awesome though.

"Well, that's what I heard!"
