1) Is it true that with the generic firmware that the router ceases to function (PeteC)?
What exactly did you mean by generic firmware? Did you mean the firmware provided by SIPPhone? If so, the DVG-1402S VoIP router will still function as it is. If your DVG-1402S VoIP router is not unlocked and you don't plan to use any VoSP services, your DVG-1402S VoIP router will still function as a router regardless what firmware you flash it with unless your DVG-1402S VoIP router is defected.
2) With the 1402s/l and the generic 1402s firmware, can the second port be programmed for a different service provider, or must both accounts register to the same proxy like with the cisco ATA?
The currently firmware only makes the DVG-1402S VoIP router to support a single VoSP with two VoIP lines.
3) has anyone installed the generic 1402s firmware on their 1402s/l and stayed with lingo? If yes; A) did it resolve your bandwidth issues? b)What do you use for your configuration, and can you provide exact details such as Server addresses and whether your password is the same password as in your account (web page) login. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO ME AS I HAVE ACTIVATED A NEW (SECOND) LINGO ACCOUNT AND THE UNIT , A UT STARCOM IS BEING SENT OUTSIDE OF THE USA AFTER IT IS RECEIVED IN THE USA. IN THE MEAN TIME, I WOULD LIKE TO ATTEMPT TO CONFIGURE XLITE FOR THE ACCOUNT, AND HAVE NOT YET BEEN ABLE TO. I DONT WANT TO MISS OUT ON THE FIRST MONTH FREE WHILE THE DEVICE IS IN TRANSIT.
I don't reckon the S36 Lingo and S49 SIPPhone firmwares for the DVG-1402S VoIP router have resolved the QoS issues. If you go and post your questions to the SIPPhone and Broadband Reports VoIP forums, I am pretty sure your questions can be answered by some of the DVG-1402S VoIP router owners, ;et alone the answers are already there. Please be specific asking questions there mainly because this DVG-1402S VoIP router has been extensively covered in these two forums unless you want to get flamed. Also, it certainly is a good idea always to read related DVG-1402S VoIP router posts in these two forums before asking questions.
4) The Dlink 1402s apparently has the capability to save a configuration. Can that configuration be saved from a locked 1402s/l and restorerd onto the generic firmware for the 1402s? Does it back up the who Enchilada, firware and config info?
Yes, but the information is not compatible in the sense that some featureas found on one firmware may not be available on the other. For instance, on the S34 Lingo Firmware, there is XML Provision feature; however, since SIPPhone has scrapped out this XML Provision feature and replaced it with the Plug-and-Dial feature, the configuration on your DVG-1402S VoIP router (with the SIPPhone firmware) restored from a config file from another DVG-1402S VoIP router with the Lingo firmware will not have the XML Provision feature set to reflect to the Plug-and-Dial feature set.
5) Has anyone packet sniffed their Lingo box to determine what Lingo Uses for User , password, and proxy addresses?
The S34 Lingo firmware username/password have been out and they are PrimusAdmin/tu7w3z39op4n. As with the recent S36F Lingo firmware, I have yet to find out from any forums. I reckon sooner or later someone will find it and post to any forums to propaget to all forums.
[quote]I will probably be ordering the Dlink 1402s/l as soon as I know what the responses are to this post./quote]
If I were you, I would not spend any $$$ on this device unless you can get it very inexpensive. I got mine for US$30 after the US$50 rebates (no Lingo subscription activation was required to submit in for the rebates). I found this information from (if not) one of those two forums mentioned above.
