Extend Home UDP port usage

Does the information found in the Router Tweaks - Keep WiFi 1st - a Community Guide as far as UDP port usage apply to the Home Extenders?

I have 2 of them setup for mine and my wife’s phone and want to get the QoS on my UTM properly configured.

I authored the Router Tweaks, however, I do not have a Extend Home, and it is my understanding they are pre-configured by Republic prior to delivery to users.

  • Now if is a UTM is what you’re trying to configure, I am not familiar with the term … just a guess, but I would think both the phone and the Extend Home would use the same ports for communication

Thanks for the reply. I’ll give those settings a shot and do some testing. UTM is Unified Threat Management. It’s a router with extra bells and whistles.

Thanks, it’s always refreshing to find yet another subject I knew nothing about.
I see there are multiple hardware vendors, plus at least one free DIY software
As it seems yours is effectively a router, then it will have to pass the Republic data stream via its Ethernet port un-changed.
Post back your results and share your knowledge with a grateful community.

Hi @giljorak and @jben,

Our engineers have let me know that all the existing SIP-related info about our smartphones applies to the Extend Home adapter, but Extend Home doesn’t use MQTT.

Thank you and the Engineers for the confirmation

That’s great to hear I’ll get it configured this weekend. I’ll just swap the no longer needed Vonage settings with the new ones for the Extend Homes. I am using the home licensed version of Untangle running on a repurposed desktop for my UTM.
