Vonage I have an almost identical setup as yours and currently use VPN to connect to work.

I have an almost identical setup as yours and currently use VPN to connect to work. The only major difference is that I use a Linux box as the router where you have the 3com.

Note that I have the Linux box run a DHCP server and assign a fixed IP ( to the RT31P2. This is essentially no different than setting it manually in the RT31P2 like you did.

When I first got the RT31P2 I hooked my PC up to one of the LAN ports and did some configuration via the admin webpages. One thing I did was to go to the Administration tab and enabled Remote Administration. I used port 8080. Now with my network configured in it's normal day-to-day setup (i.e. nothing hooked up to any of the RT31P2 LAN ports) I can access the RT31P2 at

Here are some details of my setup:

Ambit Cable Modem -> Linux machine (nic1 - DHCP)
Linux machine (nic2 - -> Simple 8 port switch
Switch -> several PCs ( thru .6) and the RT31P2 (

Here are more of the details of my setup:

- RedHat 7.1 kernel 2.4.20-28.7
- Shorewall 1.4.10c
- I have QOS configured in the kernel via Shorewall. I am using HTB (hierarchical token buckets) which gives me complete control over the outgoing traffic.
- I am using the RT31P2 in a completely degenerate mode, i.e. just using it as a phone adaptor.
- I have my Linux box configured so that it is running a DHCP server and is supplying IPs to the PCs and the RT31P2. I have specifc IPs that are associated with the MAC addresses of the PCs and the RT31P2. I am confident I could configure the RT31P2 to have a static IP (and not get it's IP from the Linux box via DHCP) and make that work.
- I have a regular CAT5 cable running from my 8 port switch to the Internet (WAN) port on the RT31P2. This is the same kind of cable that runs from the switch to the PCs.
- I do NOT have ANY ports forwarded or treated in any special way on the Linux box for the benefit of the RT31P2. **** Any reasonable router that is doing connection tracking and can apply that to UDP traffic (e.g. iptables-1.2.8-8.72.3 in collaboration with the kernel) does NOT NEED PORTS forwarded. Forwarding ports will not hurt - it is just not needed. The RT31P2 constantly initiates a call home (that is why the led blinks about every ten seconds) to reestablish a connection. Look at /proc/net/ip_conntrack on your LInux box.

When I first got my RT31P2 I connected the WAN port to the hub and twiddled with the admin web pages to set it up and verify the MAC address. Once I had configured the RT31P2 I then setup the DHCP on the Linux box and power cycled the RT31P2. All is working well since.

Hi vonage-user, I'm using an almost identical setup to your's (and vtex's): Motorola
Thanks guys - it actually looks pretty straightforward then. I think my only problem
You can plug computers into the LAN side of your RT31P2. This makes things more
OK - I am still a little confused but you managed to get me on the right track. My
