Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router
The problem is that i have a linksys wrt10n router which when I connect a siemens IP phone (w/ dynamic ip) to it, for some reason won't give the ip phone access to the internet which it needs to make internet calls
when i connect the siemens directly to my modem it does work
also the laptop which I use to write this e mail is connected to the internet so it means that as such the modem works
somebody suggested this was related to port forwarding
the ip protocol for the ip phone is 5060 this I know
what I don't know is whether port forwarding is the solution indeed and if so how to do this
What VoIP provider are you using?
Try connecting router directly to the modem and the laptop to the router and see if your laptop can get out onto the internet. If you cannot, then your router might not be handing out IPs to the devices on the internal network. You can enable the DHCP server on the router using the administrative web interface at http://192.168.1.1.
If you can get out onto the internet with your laptop behind your router then look at defining a DHCP reservation on your router for your VoIP phone and then forwarding the following to your phone:
These are common ports amonst the VoIP providers.
Hope this works, if not we'll give it another shot.
