    Has anyone had any sort of luck getting the WRV200 working with any VoIP providers?

    My phone adapter regulary looses it's connection back to the Verizon head end and I am forced to reboot the router and phone adapter.

    My network consists of Verizon FiOS "modem" connecting to the WAN port on the WRV200 I then have one Ethernet cable goint to a Netgear 8 port gagabit switch where all of my cpmputers attach. The Verizon Voicewing box (a Linksys PAP2T-R) is connected to port 2 on the WRV200. My VoIP adapter has a reservation in my DHCP server (Windows 2003 Server) box to always hand it the same IP.

    I had tried port forwarding for the VoIP box but that did not work, so I put it in the DMZ on the WRV200, but I am still getting disconnects.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

    I´m using my WRV200 with a SIEMENS S450IP and 1.0.34 Firmware. It´s running without any problem. My SIP Application Layer Gateway is enabled (Firewall settings). The SIEMENS can be combined with any SIP Provider.

    Unfortunately for me, I am set up exactly the same way. I have SIP Application Layer Gateway enabled and I'm running the 1.0.34 firmware.

    One possible difference is that I have disabled DHCP on the router. (I have a W2K3 server that handles DHCP)

    Thanks for the info! I had misunderstood the Voicewing support person and had forwarded port 6969 not the range 69 - 69!

    Hoping it stays stable now!

    Well, so much for that being the cause. I changed from forwarding port 6969 to port 69 but it is still dropping it's connection to the head end.

    BTW I do have all of the other ports forwarded properly.

    Unfortunately, none of that has seemed to help.

    One other thing I have noticed with my router is that about 80% of the time I power cycle it will connect to the WAN side and then drop the connection after a few seconds.

    This is very strange to me because I would think that everything should be cleared when I remove power. Any thoughts?

    After plenty of time on chat with Linksys they declared my router faulty.

    In addition to the problem with VoIP, about 80% of the time after I reset the router, it will only have Internet connectivity for a few seconds and then the connection drops. All of the lights look fine on the router, but no Internet. After resetting it a 2nd time, things work.

    So, not it's time to exchange the router and see if that fixes things.
