Vonage The simplest way to install your new adapter will be to just connect it to an open

The simplest way to install your new adapter will be to just connect it to an open ethernet port on your existing router and leave the rest of your current setup alone. Then just plug a phone into phone port #1 on the back of the adapter. That makes the setup process about a 2 minute deal.

If you do that, your software firewall on your computer will not affect your Vonage unit at all. Also, you can easily remove and take your Vonage phone adapter with you when you travel, because the only cables to unplug will be (1) the ethernet cable between the new adapter and your old router, and (2) the power cable/brick for the new adapter.

Now, others (probably more expert than I) will say here that this is not the best setup, and I admit there are drawbacks to using the RT31P2 behind an existing router. The major problem with putting the adapter behind the router is that you will not be able to take advantage of the QoS feature of your adapter, but that is not important if you have enough bandwidth and your call quality is OK. (I have a lot of bandwidth and have not dropped any calls or had any quality issues, so I don't miss the QoS feature at all. And some routers will allow you to assign a QoS priority to the port you use for Vonage, so you may not lose that feature at all.)

Another problem with putting the adapter behind the router is that by default it will create a separate network if you decide to plug other devices into the ethernet ports of the adapter. Your existing network and the new network will not talk to each other and you won't be able to share files or printers between networks. That's not a problem for me, because I don't use the ethernet ports on the adapter. I just use the ethernet ports and a wireless access point on my existing router and use the RT31P2 adapter only for my phone, so I don't need to use the ports on the adapter.

If you need to use thoe additional ethernet ports on the RT31P2 as a switch for other computers or devices, you can disable DHCP on the RT31P2's router and then the adapater will operate as a simple switch and you'll be on the same network as your other devices. If you do that, be absolutely sure not to put the adapter in the DMZ on your main router, or you will expose your network as a security risk open to the Internet. Your software firewall on your computer will not have any effect on that, as it only protects the computer on which it is installed and will think anything coming through the RT31P2 is to be "trusted."

In brief, you have the option of putting the new adapter in front of or behind your existing router - or even discarding your existing router and using the RT31P2 adapter as your only router. There are benefits and disadvantage of either arrangement, so you'll have to decide. Others here will probably speak to those advantage and disadvantages now that I have opened the subject. In fact, I'd like to hear other views as well. :-D

Good luck.
