Hi. Wondering if you can help me. In the past I've use Linksys routers - which have full access to all the settings. For my own reasons, I use the 5366TN connected first to the NBN modem (as it seems this is the only way to get the phone to work). Then a Linksys MESH system connects to the LAN ports and runs the rest of the WiFi.
The previous Sagemcoms I've used made it reasonably easy to port forward through 2 routers to access things on the MESH network from outside the LAN. The 5366TN seems not to want to play ball. Any help would be appreciated.
If you want to access your local network externally, then having the 5366 as the first router is problematic. You should be able to get the 5366 VoIP to work behind your linksys with info here .
Indeed it is problematic.... I'd much prefer to have Linksys first, then it can control the whole network the way I want it. I'll never understand why they make things complicated by preventing access to simple settings.
I am not sure how to change the. VOIP to work though - but I'll read the link you suggested to try to figure it out....
Hey - oddly, the phone did work - but did not ring - until I port forwarded. Have to have both WiFi and ethernet simultaneously otherwise incoming MOBILE calls do not appear on the iMAC. But this is no issue. Because of your help, I was able to port forward all the stuff I had before - works well. Thanks.
Hey all, I'm sorry for the lack of response from my side.
I'm going to put aside some time to read through all your feedback (thanks for all the input btw).
I'll collate as much as I can and send it through to our product/network team for review. More than likely, I'll create a fresh forum post that addresses your questions/concerns.
Dan is collating customer questions on this thread, I'm going to merge your post over to it to be included.
The only reason I have a 5366TN is I was experiencing NBN dropout and theis modem was 100% guaranteed to fix that! However, with the locked down firmware I can not correctly configure port forward to allow external access to my devices.
Is there any progress or anticipated date on opening the Firewall settings so that port forwarding will work?
I have had to revert back to the 3864AC as this is a show stopper for me. I need external access to a number of devices.
