How to edit/config the "SIP Network" of a Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2?

Post by kkfat » Thu May 09, 2019 11:16 pm

Does anyone know how to edit/config the "SIP Network" of a Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2?

It does display the details, but I wasn't able to find where to edit the values.

If the values can be set like http://exewiki.exetel.com.au/index.php? ... A_for_VoIP

then it is probably a great modem option for Exetel including both the broadband (tested working fine) and VOIP.

Anyone got any hint? Or is there a different username to be used for this configuration?

We are not sure about the config page or the editing option of this specific modem. However, display name / username has to be the 10 digits voip number.

Thanks KavindaS.

Apprently, the Telstra Smart modem Gen 2 VOIP feature is jailed, and it may require a jailbreak for the modem's VOIP feature to become user configurable.

That is fine. I may just use the ZTE modem coming from Exetel as my key router for the house.

However, only using the Telstra Modem after the ZTE, and using the Telstra modem for the home wireless network for kids, which has an apparently nice "Parental Control" feature built-in.

I wonder how does Exetel address the parental control needs for the customers? It seems not as significantly addressed as many other providers. Maybe something you can look into and get a ZTE firmware update?

While the ZTE 268 is quite powerful and works just fine, I think it is missing the
- good parental control
- guest network for internet without LAN access

Otherwise the ZTE is quite nice.

Unfortunately we have checked the "parental control" before and have addressed with ZTE. As per the to their feedback, modem doesn't have the feature. There is filtering function available, but it may not suitable to control internet access. (Internet---> Security----> Filter Criteria)

- Guest network for internet without LAN access

If you can further elaborate the requirement on above, I will check with modem support and provide you a feedback.

Thanks KavindaS.

The guest network/WiFi is basically when someone go to your house, and they may ask "what is your WiFi password?". However, if they use a infected laptop/handset or if they do the wrong thing while connected to your WiFi, your internal computers/NAS/mobile...etc could be under a risk.

So, many modems nowadays comes with a "Guest WiFi feature" where internet service is provided to the Guest WiFi with a separated SSID, and the connection to the Guest WiFi are individual, devices connected to the Guest WiFi network would NOT have access to the other local network connected devices.

Some links to explain the feature is here.

Hi,

This is the exact feedback i have received to my escalation on your queries.

" Customer can allocate a SSID for guest use. However, the modem is unable to separate traffic of guest SSID from other traffic. "
