Wifi Phone won't work with Actiontec/FIOS Modem

by hch3rd / May 27, 2008 10:49 AM PDT

I have a Wifi phone that worked GREAT with my Linksys router until I had FIOS installed for TV and Internet. My phone sort of connects but it's a one way conversation. I can talk through the phone to the other end....but I can't hear anything on my end of the phone. I've tried T-mobile....but they know less than I do. I now have my linksys router hooked upto the LAN on the Actiontec router and my son can connect his wifi phone to it and send/receive texts but we can't talk over them. No one seems to know anything other than...pull the plugs...reset....pull the battery....reset....if it doesn't automatically work....they are lost. Anyone have ideas?
