What sort of VOIP. Using an external ATA or using their internal VOIP option?? I have a Linksys PAP2T working on a Dynalink homehub with no problems..

There was a thread here quite some time ago around the orcon home hub. I think from memory the consensus was then that if you rang them and asked nicely they would enable the VOIP port.



My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

You can prioritise VoIP traffic if you know how to do all the complicated QoS setup that is different for every type of router. I think you would ask orcon nicely to help with that as well, but only for upstream traffic. Downstream VoIP traffic would be managed on the Orcon side already. ATAs like the PAP2 shouldn't be too much problem unless you are using bittorrent or similar P2P software, but worth trying to use the builtin voip function.
