Maxis Fiber Router Replacement to support VOIP
This is very interesting topic to discuss, how to replace the maxis router with your own router to support the VOIP. Maxis fiber come with default router Technicolor TG389AC which for me is not that good for wireless signal especially for Condo type of house.
If you dont like this setup, you can buy DLINK DSL-G2452DG which is around RM300 come with VOIP support.
For this tutorial i will show how to configure the Maxis fiber Internet using your own router
