Vonage This is actually not that complicated of a setup and is pretty much what I have.

This is actually not that complicated of a setup and is pretty much what I have. Firstly, to address why you cannot get access to the internet via a LAN workstation, that could be a number of things. Your ISP may restict what MAC address is allowed on the network and the RT31P2 (P2) does have MAC address cloning. So you may want to pull off the MAC address that your Netgear has, which also may have used MAC address cloning from your initial cable modem PC setup. Also, you may want to double check the IP address, DNS Servers, and Default Gateway are the same in the P2 as they were in the Netgear routers. I am not sure what O/S you are using, but if it is Windows XP or 2k, you may want to open a cmd window and type "IPCONFIG /RENEW" to make sure that windows is configured properly on your new LAN with the P2. If you are running Linux you may need to do a "IFDOWN eth#" followed by "IFUP eth#" (where # = the ethernet interface in question - most likely 0).

What I would suggest doing is putting your Netgear router back online and get it to work as you had before the Vonage router. Then get the following information:
IP Address, DNS Servers, Default Gateway, and MAC address.

Then put your Vonage router in between the cable modem and the Netgear router and verify that the above information matches in the Vonage Router. Put the cable modem cat 5 cable into the WAN port of the Vonage router. Then put a cat 5 cable from a LAN port of the Vonage router into the WAN port of the Netgear router. You are essentially running two different subnets (one for the Vonage router, which would be something like 192.168.15 and the other for the Netgear router something like 192.168.0). You need to make sure that these are different. Then try and get into each of the routers and Set the Vonage router to obtain IP addressing information automatically as you had before. This should then inherit the settings that previously were in the Netgear Router. The trick now is to go into "Applications and Gaming" and enable "DMZ" with an address of Also, in "Port Range Fowarding" set "Application" to "ALL", "Start to "0", "End" to "65535", "Protocol" to "Both" and "IP Address" to .2. Then go into your Netgear router and set to obtain IP address statically with an IP address of (which is the DMZ of the Vonage Router), Subnet mask to, and both the ISP Gateway and the Primary DNS to (which is the Vonage Router).

I have done a bunch of installs like this and they work great and also allow QoS and VPN. This may help with some understanding but one aspect is actually WRONG - "VPN connections, as well as the ability to host applications and services (which require Port Forwarding) behind RT31P2 (2), will not work due to the double NAT arrangement." - it will and does work:


I may try and post some more detailed instructions with JPG images to help with understanding of this approach.
