PostPosted: Sat Jan 28, 2006 3:05 am    Post subject: Problem with RTP300 and p2p Reply with quote Back to top

Hi guys, I just got my router today. After hooking it up, I only ran into the problem of a bad phone, but after switching I really couldn't be more happy with the phone service itself.

My only problem is, after switching my old Linksys hub for this new router, my p2p speeds seem to have taken quite the dive. Shareaza, for instance... I'm searching for a topic with the new router and probably get 100 search matches when typing in something like "The Beatles". On my old linksys hub I'd get near 1,000 when typing that in. It also appears that the download speeds after finally getting a nice search match, are atrocious.

This is honestly my first router, I'm fairly knowledgeable with computers, but not so much in the networking area. Anyhow, after playing on google, I found an article that recommended port forwarding? the port that Shareaza uses. I went into the router configuration and followed the instructions, which were something like:

Set begin Port range and ending Port range to the port that Shareaza uses, enable both TCP/UDP packets, and the last point in the IP address should be 10 (or so the site says). I enabled this and it still seems as if Shareaza's speeds are horrid at best.

If anyone could direct me to a thread that addresses this issue, I'd be really thankful. Also, if you have had similar problems, I'd really appreciate the help.

Thanks!

I have no answer for the question as asked, but if the old hub was doing what you need done, then consider continuing to use it. Relegate the RTP300 to adapter-only status. The RTP300 is a fine router for the average user, but we've seen a lot of complaints that it doesn't hold up well as a router for the power user.

Since the port range forwarding doesn't have any impact with throughput speeds, I would turn that back off. You don't want your computer's IP address to change and have the router forward the data that comes in through that port nowhere.

Now, without looking at anything else, it would appear that you have a quality of service problem. Try turning QoS off in the RTP300 (you can find this in the Applications and Gaming section of the router setup page) and see what happens. Your upload and download speeds through the router should go up. Just a warning though... doing this may cause choppy audio on your phone calls if you are using your internet connection for something else at the same time. Also turn off DNS proxy in the basic setup section.

Oh, Trek. You are the man!

This fixed it almost immediately. My girlfriend was almost ready to get rid of this just because she couldn't download songs anymore.

I read another post that said that OoS? kept bandwidth in check so you have the available bandwidth for an incoming call. I suppose I could easily enable this if I wanted the bandwidth reservered for phone calls again.

I wouldn't expect the quality to be good if I'm say... downloading 100 songs. I suspect it would be fine though if say our computers are idle/off.

Anyhow, this almost completely solves any problems I was having with Vonage. The phone service is fantastic so far, great discount from my local phone company.

Anyhow, thanks again, and I will pass this info on to those with similar problems.

Trekologer,

I haven't been able to access the Vonage RTP300 since connecting it.

My connection is as follows:

Moto Surfboard 5120==>Linksys WRT54G==>PC and RTP300, on separate ethernet ports.

I can access my Linksys Wireless router on 192.168.1.1 and the cable modem on 192.168.1.100.1, but I cannot bring up the RTP300 on any IP I've tried.

I'd like to check the settings there, particularly the QoS.

Thanks for any help!

Edit: BTW, the IP address assigned to it by the WRT54G appears to be 192.168.1.100, but I can't access that. And the default of 192.168.15.1 or 2 also yields nothing. Do I have to connect directly to it, and not through the WRT45G to access the settings? Thanks again.

You'll have to plug a computer directly into the RTP300 in order to access its settings. When you do, I would recommend just enabling remote router access on the Administration tab so you can get to the admin stuff without having to plug directly into the RTP300 in the future.

I would like to post my setup as it resolves a lot of issues I was having with sharing between the two routers.

I wanted the Voip router attached directly to the internet as the wireless sometimes locks when people in the house use P2P software and this causes loss of phone service, as well it seemed to reduce latency.

Router 1 Vonage RTPS300 Connected to the internet
Router 2 WRT54G

Router 1 settings:

I turned off QOS to allow fater downloads on the Applications and Gaming section on the QOS tab

Local IP 192.168.1.254
Subnet mask 255.255.255.128
DHCP: enabled
DHCP range anywhere from 192.168.1.129 to 192.168.1.252
I used 192.168.1.150 with 50 addresses

Advanced routing tab

Route name: wireless
Destination LAN IP: 192.168.1.0
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.128
Gateway:192.168.1.253
Interface:local

after connecting to the internet you can make a note of your DNS servers on your status tab

To connect to this router after the settings remember it is now 192.168.1.254. If not using DHCP to connect remember to set the last octet your subnet mask on you network card to 128.

Router 2:

Static IP: 192.168.1.253
Subnet mask 255.255.255.128
Gateway: 192.168.1.254
DNS 192.168.1.254 and any others you found on your status tab of the 1st router (optional)

Local IP 192.168.1.1
Subnet mask 255.255.255.128
DHCP enable
DHCP range anywhere from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.127
I used 192.168.1.50 with 50 addresses

Advanced routing: turn off NAT by changing from gateway to router

Add a route:
Route name: Vonage
Destination LAN IP: 192.168.1.128
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.128
Default gateway:192.168.123.254
Interface:WAN

on the security tab you can turn off all the firewall protection as the first router is providing it.

Turn on remote management on the admin tab, so that you are able to access the wireless router from the first router

Done..

You can access the 1st router using 192.168.1.254 and the 2nd using 192.168.1.1

Any machines connected to the 1st router with have IP's from .129 to .252

Any machines connected to the 2nd router with have IP's from .2 to .127

* If you use and port forwarding do it all on the 1st router as they are both now on the same subnet
