Cable/DSL routers config access

Hello folks,
I need to get internet service and I want to make sure I don't get stuck with a router I don't have control over.

What is the situation with Cablecom and Swisscom?

Do either of them give the option of just delivering Ethernet to your flat letting you deal with Natting/Firewalling/WLan so that I can use my own router and access point(s)?

Alternatively, do either of them provide equipment that can be configured (either officially or by using default config credentials by the manufacturer) ad hoc by the end user? Example: Direct port mapping, traffic shaping, uPnP...

Thanks a lot
miguel

Cablecom - they supply you a modem which gives you one Fast Ethernet port, to which you can connect your broadband router / Wireless AP. All ports are open except ports 5060 / 5061 if you have subscribed to their telephony service.

By "not open" do you mean inbound/outbound or both?

Also, do you happen to know for a fact that if you DON'T buy telephony service from them those ports will be open? I am a heavy SIP user and run a software PBX to manage all my lines.

again thanks

Re: Cable/DSL routers config access

Like you, I am a heavy VOIP SIP user, and by not subscribing to their telephony services, my modem(s) both ( the new one and the previous one EPC2203 ) had 5060/61 opened both ways.

My experience with customers having subscribed to their telephony services indicates that both 5060/61 are effectively blocked insofar as 3rd party SIP providers are concerned.

EPC2203 Scientific Atlanta / Cisco

Re: Cable/DSL routers config access

Cablecom works fine with standard SIP accounts (external providers, I have NOT subscribed to the Cablecom VOIP service). I have 2 accounts set up on my cordless phone (Siemens Gigaset) plus another 2 set up on my softphone and I have never had any trouble.

I'm using the standard Cablecom modem (which does not provide any configuration) with a third-party wlan router (airport extreme)
