How to disable SIP ALG on Thompson Technicolor Routers

Fortunately, a SIP ALG can be disabled on a Thompson Router using command line tools like telnet

Telnet is a free tool available on all windows computers

If it is not installed, you can activate telnet by entering Control Panel > Programs & Features > Turn Windows features on or off

Once enabled, open a command prompt (Start > Run, type CMD and then press enter) and do the following:


> ipconfig (Press “Enter”)


Find the line that tells you the IP address of the Default Gateway.  It will be similar to or or similar

The default username is admin and there is no default password ie leave it blank


> connection unbind application=SIP port=5060 (Then press “Enter”)

> saveall  (Press “Enter”)

> exit (Press “Enter”)


Then re-run our SIP ALG test to ensure that it is disabled
