Vonage I have been a Vonage user for a fair while now. I have had a trusty old BEFSR41 Linksys



I have been a Vonage user for a fair while now. I have had a trusty old BEFSR41 Linksys modem for about 8 years now, and it's been rock solid. Since it was strictly an old wired router I also added a Linksys WET11 access point to it so I could have wireless, and this has all worked great. Lately my old router has been giving my problems so I decided it was time to upgrade, and I chose a Linksys WRT160N modem.

Except I can't get the thing to even be recognized to configure it. The way the system is currently cofigured is as follows:

Cable Modem ==> Vonage V-Portal ==> BEFSR41 (with WET11 connected) ==> wireless to the PC.

To configure the WRT160N I just removed the BEFSR41 and WET11 from the mix, but left the Vonage V-Portal in place. Modem cable connects to the "internet" connection on the Vonage box and then a cable goes from the Vonage box to the "internet" connection on the Router. I have no wired devices as the location of the cable, etc is in a very inaccessible place.

So I went to set up the new router, basically just removed the BEFSR41/WET11 and put the WRT160N in its place, and crouched on the floor in the corner so I could connect my laptop wired to the router. But when I went through Setup the router was never recognized. I kept getting an error 322 when I tried.

Never could connect in the new router at all, even to configure it. I tried actually removing the V-Portal from the mix entirely and just connecting the modem directly to the new router - and that never worked either. I realize now that I didn't power cycle the modem so perhaps it had a MAC address problem.

But when I put my old BEFSR41/WET11 behind the V-Portal I'm back in business instantly. But with the WRT160N behind the V-Portal the WRT160N is dead as a dodo. Not even recognized as a box.

I had initially set the V-Portal first as that was the way the Vonage setup instructions specified, and since it has worked rock-solid I never found any reason to question it.

But I read here that this is not required in the setup. I can't play with it now as I'm working from home today, and I need my internet connection to be available! But perhaps later I can try reversing the order or something.

But anyone have a clue why the WRT160N is not even recognized as being there when behind the V-Portal? It all works like a charm with the ancient 8-year-old BEFSR41.
