Vonage What is the most ideal way to set up my network with Vonage, based on the hardware

What is the most ideal way to set up my network with Vonage, based on the hardware I have below? Eventually I will be connecting from this network at home to my network at work via VPN, so I need to have this set up in a way that works well with that need. That is one reason why I thought I should have the Linksys on the lan side of the 3com router.

I was generally going for the "alternate" setup shown here
but I have some questions related to this setup ...
- If I set it up exactly like that guide say (I'll have to reset the TA to default first) will I be able to access the TA config pages from my lan?
- Will I be able to connect another computer to the ethernet ports of the TA?
- Will the TA be on the same subnet as my router (192.168.1.X/

My ISP is Brighthouse Networks (roadrunner), dynamic ip.

I have tried to configure my network generally as follows:

cable modem to 3Com officeconnect router (wired/wireless)
3com gets wan IP from RR via dhcp
3com assigns lan IPs via dhcp
The 3com is (
3com out to a switch
switch also connects
-networked printer
-TA wan port (Lynksys RT31P2)
Lynksys dhcp off, lan ip static, wan ip ???
phone plugged into RT31P2 is working but I can't access the Linksys config pages from anywhere on the network with this setup.

No port forwarding, no dmz, no static routing, no mac address cloning.

Should I set it up where the Lynksys is on a different subnet 192.168.15.X ? I'm not sure how to do that and how to set the routers to work together, but that seems like it would complicate things so I was trying to keep everything on 192.168.1.X.

I'm pretty confused about it, but right now I have the flexibility to set it up any way I want. I want to get it going correctly, not just so that it works haphazardly.

Here's something I came across that sounds pretty strange:
" have a Linksys (model # in sig) wireless router behind the RT31PT & mine works fine. I had trouble with mine until I used the RT31PT like a switch behind the wireless router. I will give you my setup to see if this type of setup will help you. Plug the modem ethernet to the WAN/INTERNET port of your wireless router & run all your wired pc's through the LAN ports of your wireless router (basically keep the router in front setup like you would without the RT31PT). What you do different is with the RT31PT. You take an ethernet cable & plug it in to the WAN/INTERNET port on the RT31PT & run the other end to one of the 3 LAN ports on the RT31PT then take another ethernet cable & run it from one of the LAN ports on the RT31PT to one of the LAN ports on your wireless router. This should fix it if your problem is a setup issue. If you already have this setup or a correct setup then it may be something else........

Thanks for any help here ...

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