Vonage A few weeks ago I purchase both a basic residential and premium business account

A few weeks ago I purchase both a basic residential and premium business account from Vonage. I work out of a home office, so the numbers associated with the accounts I signed up for both come into the same house. I informed Vonage of this, but to my dismay, Vonage shipped me two Linksys RT31P2 routers, each with one number mapped to it. I called technical support and begged them to map both numbers to the same router. They told me that they could not do this unless both numbers were associated with the same customer account. Following their lead in, I asked if I could merge the two numbers onto the same account. They said that since one was residential and one was business, the two lines could not be on the same account.

So I found myself in the unfortunate situation of having to setup both routers in order to accommodate both phone lines. To complicate things further, my home network consists of 5 computers, so the meager supply of LAN ports available on the RT31P2 routers made it necessary to introduce a switch. I struggled for three days trying to daisy chain the two routers together. I spoke with Vonage tech support no less than 12 times over the course of three days. I give them an A for manners, a C for script reading, and regrettably an F for problem solving. In the end I finally got a convoluted configuration working, which I’ll describe now.

I’ll be refering to my routers as “Router A” and “Router B”. Each router has 1 WAN port (labeled “Internet”), 3 LAN ports (labeled “Ethernet”), and two phone jacks (labeled “Phone 1” and “Phone 2”).

Cable Modem connected to Router A WAN port

Router A Setup:
Internet Connection Type: Obtain IP Automatically
Local IP Address:
DHCP Enabled with range - 150

Router B Setup:
Internet Connection Type: Static IP:
Local IP Address:
DHCP Diabled

Now here is where it gets crazy:

Router A Ethernet Port 1 connected to Router B WAN port -This enables the phone line on the second router (B) to function. To give the Voip packets from Router B priority as they travel through Router A, go into Router A’s configuration and under the applications & gaming’s QoS section, specify Port 1 to have high priority.

Router A Ethernet Port 2 connected to Router B Ethernet Port 1 -This allows computers on the second router to register on the first routers subnet.

This is a ridiculous setup, but the only one I found that worked. It leaves you with only one remaining ethernet port on the Router A and two on the Router B. I’ll be connecting a wireless access switch with 5 additional Ethernet ports to the last port on Router A. The remaining two ports on Router B can be connected to anything you like.

All of this mess and wasted time could have been avoided, if Vonage would have just mapped both number to one router. I can’t belive they don’t have telecommuter / home professional configuration. Hope this helps.
