Hi Guys

I need someone to recommend a new DSL Router, which is grunty enough, and has to support the following:

USB Port WAN 3G Failover which is compatible with the Telecom T-Stick
SIP ALG OR SIP Proxy - Multiple LINKSYS SPA504G Phones behind the same router/public I.P
VPN be nice but not necessary as there is another connection that can go on

The SRP527 is excellent but you will have a problem with XT on failover for your VOIP I'm afraid, I have been doing a lot of testing, funnily enough I have actually been doing just this testing on a the srp range in the last couple of days with new beta firmware loads but thier is issue with XT that has been known about for a while.

Any outbound SIP call that is answered automatically without ringing, ie automated attendants, IVR's etc will drop within a few seconds due to the speed of the sip connection not getting passed back via the 3G connection in other word a lot of 0800's , this issue is not router related but an issue with how XT handles this type of traffic.

Vodafone 3G is not affected by this, only XT

Any ideas if Cisco are expanding their 3G stick compatibility to include a few more of the Vodafone variants?

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Actually I used a couple so far and all good , K3715 , K3250,

K3715 auto detects and connects automatically, the K3715 requires you to manually put in the vodafone APN as does the XT TStick MF626
