I am currently with Orcon for my ISP and on the Genius White plan with the Netcomm NF4V Modem+Router supplied by Orcon. The WiFi has been absolute crap and I have been wanting to buy a 3rd party modem+router and a Cisco SPA112 for our VoIP phone line, but read that it wouldn't work because VoIP only works with the modem+router supplied by Orcon. Is this true? Can I use a 3rd party modem+router while still having VoIP?


If true, would I be able buy a router and just connect that to the modem+router supplied by Orcon?

Ask them to replace it...?
