Does anyone have the vodafone sure signal box working with their broadband connection?
Mine will not connect to the internet so is completely useless and their online help may as well be written in a foreign language.
The failure to connect to the internet in order to boost the 3G signal may be something to do with the modem/router settings or to the firewall.
Any help or suggestions would be gratefully received as I don't want to have to ring the £1 a minute pc help line just yet.
Thanks a lot

I'm having issues with my Sure Signal but only as much as I can't MAKE calls - receiving is fine as are text and data. My broadband is 10mb. Try the Vodafone eForum, they're really good and are currently helping me with my issues.

Hi, just to give you an update, I have resolved my sure signal problem.
Long story short, I have a Dlink dkt-110, dir-301 router with firmware 1.02 hardware a1
I had to upgrade the firmware to the german version of 1.02.de
hope this helps anyone reading

I should have said, that the drawback is the control panel is now in German, but it works!

Hi, hope this helps those of you who have sure signal boxes from Vodafone.
Log in to your router and go to port forwarding.
Go to add custom rules.
Device name you can just choose one I chose VDSS as an abreviation.
Enter 500 for start port and 4500 for end port
Use Protocol "UDP"
and finally enter the final digit that corresponds to your sure signal boxes ip address.
Click add and thats it for your router.
Then press and hold the reset button of the sure signal box, remove the power cable for 10 seconds or so (still with your finger on the reset) then plug the power back in wait a few seconds and then release the reset button.
Then wait and watch as your sure signal goes through the sequence of start up (takes about 3-5 minutes).
Check your phone, make a test a call and hey presto one working sure signal
PS for those who are unsure as to how you find out the sure signal ip address.
First have a look at the lable on your sure signal box, you will see part of it says mac address, this is its personal identity code.
Log in to your router and go to mac filtering there you will see a list of trusted devices, one of the columns is mac addresses, simply look through and find the one that matches the address on the lable of your sure signal, the ip address listed nect to it is the one that its connected to, you then need the very last digit for when you do your port forwarding.
Hope this helps
