Vonage Are you sure that you have the cabling right between the modem, BEFW11S4, and RT31P2?

Are you sure that you have the cabling right between the modem, BEFW11S4, and RT31P2? Let's work through this and get you set up. It seems to me that the cable modem must connect to the Internet port on the BEFW11S4 (it is clearly marked as such), then a numbered Ethernet port (WAN or LAN) on the BEFW11S4 connects to the Internet port on the RT31P2. It simply won't work any other way, in my opinion! The following describes what I mean (with extra RT31P2 and PC's):
This is your hookup description:

I am sorry JO3 but it seems to me that your hookup description, as it reads, has a few flaws in it, first of all it makes no sense to me at all, but that's my problem:
1) cable modem to WAN (Wide Area Network) on the wireless-b router just can't be a correct description or a correct connection; The Specifications for the Linksys BEFW11S4 are as follows:
The port specifications clearly describe:
One - 10/100 RJ45 Port For Broadband Modem (Internet)
Four - 10/100 RJ45 Switched Ports (WAN or LAN as you call them)
This means that the cable modem is to be connected to the separate Broadband Internet Port on the router and Not one of the numbered Ethernet (WAN) ports.

2) Next you run something into the RT31P2 WAN port. (Forgive me but I find that description too vague to make any sense out of it.) In the same manner, this cannot work. You must run a BEFW11S4 numbered Ethernet (WAN) Port into the RT31P2 Internet Port (it is clearly labled as such).

3) Now for some reason you run a LAN (WAN) from the RT31P2 back to a LAN (WAN) Port on the BEFW11S4. You got me on that one. I am sorry JO3 but this one makes absolutely no sense to me at all. I think that, maybe, you are having difficulty in understanding the standard nomenclature for these Ports and their uses.

If you have followed me this far and have chosen to take my advice on this issue, then please take the following steps as necessary that are described in: (it's easier to give you the URL than writing them out).

After everything has been hooked up and running, I suggest that you reset your BEFW11S4 and your RT11P2 to factory defaults by depressing the reset button in the rear of the routers for about ten to thirty seconds and then release. You will have to reset your password. If you have a need to set up certain ports you will have to set them up again. It's worth it. If you need further instructions on not being able to access your Web-Based Utility or to reset your devices they can be found in the Linksys Installation and Troubleshooting Guide that came with your equipment.

In my opinion I recommend that you enable DHCP and set it to "Obtain an IP Automatically". Let the routers adjust the IP addresses by themselves. I find it tedious to manually adjust Static IP's especially when you have Wi-Fi and the machines will do it for you anyway.

That's my two bits. Good luck. I hope that you solve your routing problem.
