Whether the FVS124g gigabit VPN router is a good piece of equipment or not I leave for another day. But, if you want it to work with Vonage you must do the following (thanks to Netgear Enterprise post moderator endurorider – used with permission)

You need to turn off SIP ALG on the FVS124G.

Disabling SIP through CLI on FVS124G to allow VoIP traffic to pass

Step 1

Telnet to the LAN interface of the router. You must be connected locally to one of the router’s LAN ports.

Step 2

Enter your Username and Password. This is the same as if you were logging into the webGUI.

Step 3

Type ‘Cli’ using a capital ‘C’.

Step 4

You should now be in the CLI of the router. Type ‘config/algs’.

Step 5

There are 6 different protocols you need to disable.


Use the command ‘disable ’.

Step 6

Check to make sure the 6 protocols have been disabled by using the ‘show’ command.

Step 7

Save your work by typing ‘save’ command. When you hit Enter, there may be a slight delay while the router is saving.

Step 8

Finally, type ‘exit’ and then ‘logout’ and you’re done!
