Currently have two phones connected to the HG659 but want to replace the router with a different device that has more features. I believe with Vodafone you can't just plug directly into the ONT. can you get an adaptor?

You will need to use the existing Vodafone router for your voice. Convert it to DHCP and plug it into your new router.

 

There are numerous threads on here discussing the pros and cons on this. You will also need to ensure things such as SIP ALG is disabled on your new router.

Awsome! thanks guys for pointing me in the right direction. 

 

Found what I was looking for with these instructions.

 

These instructions assume you have set up your third party router already. Setting up the third party router will differ depending on the make and model. Generally, the only settings that you should need to change are setting the WAN port to "DHCP" and tagging that WAN port "VLAN 10".

 

 

 

1) Unplug all cables from the HG659, except for the power cable.

 

 

 

2) Plug an ethernet cable from one of the yellow LAN ports on the HG659 to your computer.

 

 

 

3) Open your web browser on your computer and go to http://192.168.1.1 to access the management page of the HG659.

 

 

 

4) Log into the HG659 using the account "Admin". You can find the password for your HG659 on the Vodafone help pages here. Note that the username is Admin with a capital.

 

 

 

5) You might be asked to change your password. Feel free to do that, provided you remember the new password.

 

 

 

6) Once you have logged in, click on the red "Internet" button near the top of the page.

 

 

 

7) Scroll down the page until you find the "Internet_Ethernet" section. Click on the "Edit" button just below those words to expand out all of the options in that section.

 

 

 

8) In that section is a box next to the option "Enable VLAN". Uncheck that box, then scroll down and hit "Save" to save the settings.

 

 

 

If you want to disable WiFi, follow the next 3 steps. Otherwise, skip to step 12. If a device uses WiFi from the HG659 after following this set of instructions, it will be behind double NAT and some services may not work. 

 

 

 

9) Click on the red "Home Network" button towards the top of the screen.

 

 

 

10) Click on the "WLAN Settings" button to the left.

 

 

 

11) Uncheck the boxes next to "Enable WLAN 2.4GHz" and "Enable WLAN 5GHz" and click save.

 

 

 

12) Plug an ethernet cable from the red WAN port of the HG659 to your network (e.g. a LAN port on your third party router, or a port on your ethernet switch).

 

 

 

13) Plug your phone(s) into the green ATA port(s) on the HG659.

 

 

 

14) After waiting a while, pick up a phone to make sure you hear a dial tone.

 

 

 

If you need to log back into the HG659 after following these steps, you can plug an ethernet cable back into a yellow LAN port and into your computer to access the management page. Note that the address used to access the HG659 may have changed - mine became http://192.168.3.1 automatically.

I think you need to turn on SIP ALG on the Asus router, otherwise the sip registration wont be set right out in the network (private ip versus public)

 

See how that goes.

Actually I'm fairly sure as sbiddle said you should generally disable SIP ALG as it shouldn't be needed and normally makes things worse.

Not when you are using FXS ports (as opposed to a LAN SIP phone)  on the router which is behind the ASUS, which is what you are doing here.

 

You should try and see.
