I tried a bunch of settings on the router like adding Port Forwarding for the Blackberry on IPSec, etc. Nothing works till now. The Actiontec is darn pain in the neck to configure but am assuming there is a way since it lets you control everything.
Does anyone have a solution that does not involve piggybacking another router onto the Actiontec?
Mine actually works on the Actiontec well enough that I unplugged the Linksys. Here's are my settings. No science to it, I just tried a bunch of things all at once and it's ok. So can't pin down the ones that really make the difference. I think the main improvement is I got a warranty exchange when my phone fried. This phone seemed way better on UMA from the start.
8320 running 18.104.22.168. 22.214.171.124 seemed to be ok as well, but connecting took coaxing. Now my phone only has problems with some hotel routers.
WEP 128-bit password
SSID Broadcast Enabled (Seemed ok on disabled as well)
Under QoS, Traffic Priority: my Linksys router, VOIP box, and 8320 all are set to Priority 6
No other QoS settings changed
I don't think I changed anything else. No port forwarding or things like that. However I do note than in Port Triggering under Remote Administration, there are 2 settings that I may have messed with. They don't quite look familiar, but who knows. Here they are:
L2TP Triggering - Layer Two Tunneling Protocol
UDP Any -> 1701 UDP Any -> Same as Initiating
TFTP Triggering - Trivial File Transfer Protocol
UDP 1024-65535 -> 69 UDP Any -> Same as Initiating
If I did add them, they were added by me trying to add UDP priority. But they might be something already there. They may be related to my VOIP box as well.
Edit: I can use my Motorola H700 headset with no problems. I just tried a call using bluetooth to my VOIP line and it sounds great. That's with having Fidelity Activetrader with streaming quotes running on my computer. I have just the basic bandwidth plan from Fios. That should have been a high demand connection, but I can drop the handset next to the tv, have a lot of 2-way info going and it'll stay connected. I think I got it to 20 minutes one time on a test before I got bored.
