Vonage First of all you are entirely missing the point if I am reading you correctly. 1)

First of all you are entirely missing the point if I am reading you correctly.

1) Vonage and the Vonage telephone adapter/ router does not block RDP protocol on port 3389.

2) You can perform port forwarding from one router to another which I will explain later.

3) Port forwarding has nothing to do with what you just explained.

If you are at home and the Remote Desktop computer is at work, if you are trying to access your work computer from at home, this is an outbound connection. Same as anything else. Same as opening up a web site. Your local computer sends a request from a private IP, the router's NAT masks this private IP and transmits your request across the internet via your public IP.

Port forwarding is ONLY needed when you are hosting something such as Remote Desktop or a Web Server. If you tried to reach your computer at home from any outside internet connection, you would need to port forward TCP port 3389 to the private IP your computer hosting the Remote Desktop connection. You would then enter your public IP into the Remote Desktop client from the remote PC, the request would hit the WAN interface of your router, and the router's NAT table would relay your request to the IP address entered into the port forwarding.

Now, if your trying to access a computer at work, I have to assume there is a firewall or router in place. I don't think your work computer is directly connected to the internet via a public IP address.

1) So are you using a VPN connection to your office and then trying to use Remote Desktop to your work PC via it's private IP?

2) Are you sitting at home and trying to enter your work computer's private IP into the Remote Desktop client?

If this is what you are doing, it wont matter whether you are behind 2 routers, 1 router, or PC directly to modem. If your IT staff has not enabled a port forwarding rule from their NAT to your PC, this wont work. Unless you are the Network Admin who has full access to your firewall and routers, you cannot access your work PC from home.

Lastly we come to port forwarding with 2 routers.

Set up is modem to router 1 to router 2 to PC. Note: All IP information used is for scenario only. It does not represent your exact setup.

Router 1 WAN port got assigned an IP of

Router 1 LAN side operates on subnet so Router 2 has an IP of statically assigned to it's WAN port.

Router 2 has a LAN subnet of so the PC connected to it has an IP of assigned to it.

In the Router 1 port forwarding, you would set TCP port 3389 to forward to Router 2 at IP address

Then in Router 2 port forwarding, you set TCP port 3389 to forward to IP address which is the PC.

At the remote location, you enter into the Remote Desktop client, it hits the WAN of Router 1 which forwards your request to the WAN of Router 2 which forwards your request to the PC with IP

You just traversed a Double NAT configuration. So easy, this is networking 101, the remedial course. If I were to box this up, it would say "Recommended for ages 5 and up" on the box top.

But you wouldn't even need to do this since your PC should be connected to a LAN port on Router 1.

I hope this makes sense to you and I have covered in detail exactly what you are trying to achieve.

Hi I have a vonage account and this weekend I tried to connect a Linksys WRT54G wireless
You can change the order around and have the WRT be the main router and both the Vonage
The order of the units will not effect the quality of the phone connection?
Under most circumstances, the order won't matter. As long as you have a decent
unfortunately, the order didn't matter. I still cant connect to my work computer
