 +====== How to Disable SIP ALG on a D-Link Router ======
 +SIP ALG (Application Layer Gateway) is a feature which is enabled by default in most D-Link routers and inspects VoIP traffic as it passes through and modifies the messages on-the-fly.
  
 +In few situations this is useful, but in most situations SIP ALG can cause problems using the service. Very often, SIP ALG is poorly implemented causing VoIP messages to be modified in a harmful way or simply corrupts them. In such cases you may experience issues registering your handset, one-way or no audio, unable to receive calls, and issues with [[features:​blf|Busy Lamp Field (BLF)]] and Message Waiting Indicators (MWI).
 +
 +For our Hosted VoIP service, including out Single User services, SIP ALG must be disabled on your D-Link router.
 +
 +This guide explains how to disable //SIP ALG// on most D-Link routers.
 +
 +
 +====== Step-by-Step Guide  ======
 +  - Fire up a browser (Firefox, Chrome etc) and go to **192.168.0.1** (this is the default IP address on most D-Link routers)
 +  - Log into the router
 +      * The default //​username//​ is usually **admin** and the default //​password//​ should be blank
 +  - Click on **Advanced**
 +  - On the left menu click on **Firewall Settings**
 +  - Uncheck **Enable SPI**
 +  - Set **UDP Endpoint Filtering** and **TCP Endpoint Filtering** to **Endpoint Independent**
 +  - Under **Application Level Gateway (ALG) Configuration** uncheck **SIP**
 +  - Click **Save Settings** towards the top of the page
 +  - If prompted, reboot your router (firewall)
 +  - Close your browser and restart your handset. SIP ALG is now disabled.
