I am with telecom looking to jump to voda because of some deal ...

My question is - is the Voda modem any better than the Thomso 585 that I got from telecom - very poor wifi range ...

Thanks

:D

I guess the question was too specific for that other thread which was mainly asking about the Voda package whereas I can ask a specific question in the modem forum ...

But they block SIP and force you to use the 2 built-in analog outputs if you want a voip phone number. Voip traffic gets redirected through some obscure tunneling protocol, probably for QoS but seems to block SIP traffic from going to other VoIP providers.




Time to find a new industry!

I use VOIP provider 2Talk in conjunction with my Vodafone BB connection, as do a number of other GZ users. It's pretty easy to enable SIP on these modems.

EDIT: If you go down this route you'll need to enable Telnet first, then disable it when you've finished.

might also be worth noting Vodafone have recently changed the modem they send out

Don't know about this one. The old HG520 Wireless G modem was nice, and very stable. We had no end of problems with the Broadband Complete - the wifi or ADSL wasn't very stable from memory. Changing to a Draytek Vigor 120 and TP Link TL-WR1043ND fixed it completely though.

The LCD on the station is very cool!
