Introduction

An Application Layer Gateway (ALG) is a common function on router, however such functionality is not always implemented in the same way across different vendors. A SIP ALG will modify the VoIP traffic and in most cases cause the service to work unreliably if at all. We therefore STRONGLY recommend that you use a device without a SIP ALG, or one that allows you to fully disable such functionality.

Whenever possible you should choose a router that has QoS (Quality of Service) if you plan to share the same Internet connection with non-VoIP services.

We also recommend that you always make sure your modem is bridged and updated to the newest firmware available.
