Weave phones work well with Linksys Smart Wifi routers. There is typically just one important setting to verify in the router configuration. To ensure that no additional firewalls will interfere with phone traffic, it is necessary to verify that the router receives an internet-routable (public) IP address on its WAN interface. 

Checking the Internet Connection Type

Login to the Linksys configuration page

  1. In the sidebar, click the gear icon which is labeled Connectivity
  2. Click the tab labeled Internet Settings
  3. In the Connection Type field verify that the router is not set to Automatic Configuration-DHCP (see image.)

Note: If you see that the connection type is set to automatic configuration then the router is not receiving a public IP address and you should contact your ISP to put your modem in bridge, DMZ, or PPO.
