Help opening & forwarding ports on WAG54G v2

    Hi. Hope someone can help me with this.

    I am trying to get a Linksys SPA3000 working in conjunction with a WAG54Gv2 router. On a VoIP board I have been advised to open and forward ports 5060 and 5061 UDP for SIP and 8000-8010 UDP for RTP.

    On the WAG I have been to the Port Range Forwarding page and set the first two records in line with the above plus the IP address of the ATA and checked the Enable boxes. Is this all I have to do? Judging by the page name it is only forwarding, does this open them as well?

    Thanks, Dave61

    It does, they say open if your running a firewall between the ATA and the internet connection, since yiour just using the WAG you should be fine... The main purpose of that forwarding is so you can recieve incoming calls. Outgoing should work fine with no forwarding... Incoming calls will work SOMETIMES with no forwarding but some will go right to voicemail.

    Thanks for the help.

    I have now managed to register the ATA with SIP server, the problem was that on the ATA the DNS server was not set. Have not managed to make a call yet but that's another story.

    if it registered with the SIP server DNS really is a non issue for the ATA... it should get that from DHCP though... try making a call.

    I am using a static IP address, recommended to help with setting the port forwarding, and was failing to register until manually setting the DNS.

    if your using a static IP (which you would want to do for port fwding) you need to set up DNS manually.
