Vonage QoS should be under "Applications and Gaming". You mean DHCP? No,

QoS should be under "Applications and Gaming".

You mean DHCP? No, I wouldn't, assuming you just want the RTP300 to be a Vonage device, it'll make it a bit easier to administer it if you leave it on, since it'll issue an IP address to any PC plugged into ot.

The RTP300 should be set to "obtain IP automatically", or set up with an IP address that is in the same range as your PC gets when connected to the NetGear.

When you have two routers, you will have two networks. If the NetGear is first, the RTP300 will be a CLIENT of the NetGear's network, and a SERVER of its own. The RTP300 will, in essence, have a TCP/IP address on the WAN port that is part of the NetGear's network, then TCP/IP addresses on its LAN ports that are its OWN network.

The NetGear will probably not "see" the RTP300 if you don't allow the NetGear to assign it an IP address. Most of the "attached devices" screens on consumer routers show the DHCP lease table, and is only populated when a device asks for an IP address.

If you intend to use your RTP300 purely as a Vonage device, and it's already behind a firewall, I'd turn those off and allow the device to open itself up more on your internal LAN.

Here's your big challenge:

You want all of your computers, wired and wireless, on one network, correct?

If so, all of your computers will have to be on your NetGear unit, or you will have to combine networks between your NetGear and your RTP300.

So, here are your options:

1. Put the RTP300 out front. Turn on its firewall, and whatever else you can find. Place the NetGear in its DMZ so the NetGear has full access to the Internet. Plug the NetGear into a port on the RTP300, and plug ALL of your computers into the NetGear.

Advantage: Simple. The RTP300 has Vonage access. All computers on one LAN internally.

Disadvantage: All computers wanting to access the Internet have to go through BOTH routers. Performance may be affected, and VPN access even more so. But it might work.

2. Put the RTP300 out front, plug the NetGear AND your wired PC's into it. Use the NetGear as a wireless access point only.

Advantage: As simple as 1, and all your wired clients get single-NAT access to the Internet (better performance, better VPN)

Disadvantage: Wired and Wireless will be on different local networks, unless your NetGear can become a simple access point.

3. Put the NetGear out front, plug the RTP300 and all your computers into it. RTP300 gets set up with "obtain address automatically" (at first, you can play with fixed IP later).

Advantage: simplest of all. All computers are on same network, and have single-NAT access.

Disadvantage: It doesn't appear to be working. But I'd try it with automatic IP on the RTP300 first, and don't mess with fixed IP yet.

4. BEST:
(A) Put the RTP300 out front. Disable DHCP on the NetGear, and plug a LAN port from the RTP300 into a LAN port on the NetGear, turning the NetGear into a simple switch and access point. *OR*

(B) Set the NetGear up for transparent routing (where it forwards DHCP requests and everything else to the RTP300) and plug a LAN port from the RTP300 into the WAN port of the NetGear. Plug all pc's into either the RTP300 or the NetGear - doesn't matter now.

Advantage: You now only have one network, bridged between two routers. VERY simple network. Only one range of IP addresses. The NetGear isn't even ASSIGNED a network address, since it's not doing any kind of NAT, it's only routing packets.

Disadvantage: I don't know enough about your NetGear to know if it will support either of those scenarios. Worth a try, though. You may need a crossover cable for the "4A" solution.

There are all of your options. If I was there, I'd play with them and see which one worked.
