I am looking to buy a better router than the one provided by Plusnet.
Can anyone recommend one that works with Fibre and with Vodafone Sure Signal.
I had a Draytek 2820 but the firmware doesn't allow fragmented UDP packets so Sure Signal just never worked (though I believe the 2830 does)
Thanks in advance
I can confirm that the 2830 will work with Sure Signal. Actual combination is:
DrayTek: Vigor2830Vn Firmware Version: 3.6.3_sb_232201 Build Date/Time: Sep 17 2012 16:18:48
Sure Signal MODEL 9361 HOMECELL V2-V PART NUMBER 3JR09110 ABBA
Open Ports required
UDP 4500, 500, 123
Don't expect it to spring into life straight away. A reboot of the router and VSS is required and it takes about 15 minutes to sync.
It goes without saying the mobiles you are using needs to be registered with the unit and of course this is for the Vodafone network only. Make sure the mobile mobile used is listed as being compatible with the unit.
Some people reported that they got the combination of 2820 and VSS working but I simply do not believe that is the case. I had a LOT of technical help for Vodafone and between us we could not crack it.
Of course the 2830 is not a bit of kit that replaces the OR modem; you link the two togther with CAT5 into the WAN port; one the draytek routers does but whether you could gett VSS working with it is unknown.
Please report back your choice of router and whether you achieved the oracle.
