If the problem is fragmentation i really have no clue on how to handle it.
It sounds really strange. In my setup i have approx. 15 SIP klients and 5+
VoIP providers. I've never seen this problem.
Please take a look on the MTU settings in you monowall and in your modem if
any. Set it to default values (typically 1500 for DSL connection, 1492 for
PPP). This may help.
In general the SIP packages sent btw. the SIP entities should not be
fragmented since they are really small. Large SIP packages will cause
degration of audio quality.
