Hello,

I have been trolling around these forums for a wee while, looking at the Xnet offering. I already have my broadband through Xnet and was umm'ing and err'ing over the Voip stuff too.

Anyhow I was about half a mm away from buying an SPA2102 and then started to wonder if I would have issues with this and my current gateway/modem (Linksys WAG54G).

Does anyone know if these 2 will play nicely together with the Voip stuff? I sent the Xnet people an email asking them, but they referred me on to Linksys...so I had a wander around Linksys and google to see if I could see any reference to whether or not the WAG54G will handle the voip or not, and came up empty.

So hence my post on this forum. Do you wise people know whether or not this setup will work?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers
Troy

Not too sure whether it is a version 2 or not - sadly I am at work at the moment, and can't check/confirm...does version 2 work and version 1 not? :(

Oh damn - now after looking on the internet for WAG54GP2 to see if it looks the same as mine, I am all confused as mine looks the same as the WAG200G argh....damnit...I need to go home and confirm *groan*
I suppose I was hoping that I could just forward some ports and it would pass the stuff through, without actually having to be compliant with voip traffic *sigh*

Will confirm and post back :) Sorry for the dumbness :(

No worries, you don't know if you don't ask, generally you should be okay will depend on if the devices handles SIP nat, if the units is a wag54gp2 it has voice lines built in.

For the 2102 always good to set it on a static Ip as well , actually this is the best bet for any device behind a router.

Thanks Maverick - am almost positive it doesn't have any dedicated phone lines on the back, so most likely is not the P2 version...so I will go home and confirm the model number and then see if I can find any information on the tech sheets about this device supporting SIP...then hopefully I will either get to order one device :), or have to look at buying 2 :(

Will post back here to gleem some knowledge off you later.

Okay well I am officially a muppet and I have confirmed that I don't even have a WAG54G.
What I do have is a WAG200G

Looking at the spec sheet I couldn't find anything that refer's to SIP nat, however there was a reference to SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall *shrug*
Can you tell I have no idea at all?!?! :(

Anyhow if anyone could confirm for me whether I am likely to have problems using this with the SPA2102 it would be much appreciated as I really have no idea what all the different things mean!
Specs here:

Any input is hugely appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Troy

You should be okay, possibly not the best router but if you go with a 2102 then you can use it behind any router if this does not do the job.

You can do a port forward to the static IP of the 2102 on port 5060 which is the standard SIP port

The reason I say it's possibly not the best is that it dosnt have any type of SIP nat which can assist with handling of SIP traffic, by using Port forwarding it will probably be fine, once setup a good way to test is have a call up and try downloading via a wired connection and the wireless and see how it effects call quality.
