Telus + 2Wire 2700 Router Horrible

Telus + 2Wire 2700 Router Horrible

Well first of all let me say this is the only router/switch that sometimes seems to crash/disconnect computers on the local network.

This device also thought it would be smart to block VOIP packets coming from my Sipura ATA VOIP adapters so I disabled the [quote:cb89ba7bff]"Invalid TCP Flag Attacks (NULL/XMAS/Other)"[/quote:cb89ba7bff] option

Then all of a sudden I couldn't get onto any web pages, the wireless network stopped working and my SSH sessions all dropped.

Now because of those VOIP packets going back and forth between one of my Asterisk PBX it decided my FreeBSD box must be infected with some kind of virus so it was intercepting all traffic on port 80![/b:cb89ba7bff]

Anyway disabling [quote:cb89ba7bff]"Excessive Session Detection"[/quote:cb89ba7bff] fixed the problem nicely.

I have to say I'm not impressed with this router.

It also lacks other things like:

[list=*ability to refresh/release/renew DHCP leases
*ability to reboot
*advanced port forwarding
*filter by MAC address][/list]
