I've been running woosh through my WRT54G v3.1 router without any problems.
Just been setting up the phone gateway and its fine hardwired but no-go through the router.

Any ideas?

It's more than likely a case of you needing to forward some ports for VoIP to work. If you ring Woosh they would be able to tell you what ports you will need. One will be 5060/UDP which is the standard port for SIP (call setup) and there will be a port or range of ports somewhere between 10000-20000/UDP which carry the actual voice traffic.

You could try opening 5060/UDP and 10000-20000/UDP to test things (and it should probably work) but leaving 10000 ports open on your router is not a wise thing to do and may also affect other applications that may want to use the ports.

Thanks for the response. I'm not much of a geek so your reply sounds like double dutch to me!

Anyway I may have confused the issue with the way my question was written- it's not VoIP that's the problem.

After everythings set up VoIP works fine but I only get the internet if I'm hardwired to the gateway. If I connect the gateway to the WAN on the router I can't connect wirelessly to the internet. So there's obviously a communication issue between the gateway and the router.

I've been using a Woosh PPPoE cable from the modem to the router (it's a v 3.1) so I wonder if it's the cable that's the problem. I can't use that cable in the new setup between the gateway and the router because the fittings are both network (???)                  

I guess it could be the router settings because I needed to set them up too when I set up the modem/router.
I did have a look in there but couldn't see anywhere to adjust things. I was hoping someone may be able to point me in the right direction.
