Technicolor TG588v v2 Updated Firmware (15.3)
image coming soon If you are using VoIP and you are getting issues where calls are failing, one way voice, cutting off at regular intervals, or you are unable to transfer calls internally, this may be the result of the router showing as SIP Aware (SIP_ALG).  Some suppliers will disable SIP_ALG in the firmware to combat this issue, however, there has been cases where the above symptons happen but the router doesn't look SIP Aware.
Technicolor TG588v v2 - Create a network bridge
image coming soon

A network bridge is where two routers are used on the same connection.  The reason why this may be required is either to create two separate networks or to extend the range when the host router is in a different part of the premises.

As the TG588 and TG589 do not allow you to pass the WAN IP directly to an attached device (aka.  Modem Mode) this guide takes advantage of having multiple WAN IPs assigned to a connection.  In this example we have used a TG588v v2 as the host router and a TG389ac as the bridged router although any cable/DSL router could be used for the bridge.

Locking down the Technicolor TG588 v2
Locking down Technicolor routers

With the latest version of firmware (16.2) it is now possible to lock down a router so it can only accept incomming connections from a specific IP address and port.  This is extremely useful if you are using this router to connect a device which only needs to communicate with one place (e.g. a VoIP system).

The reason why you may want to do this is to reduce the chance a third party is able to connect to your devices from other locations.
