PostPosted: Mon Mar 13, 2006 11:26 am    Post subject: Question about this setup (Dlink and RTP Linksys) Reply with quote Back to top

hey guys, phone adapter is getting delivered today, and wanted to do some testing.

While my number is being ported, i'm trying to figure out a good way to wire this since i have a wireless dlink 524 g. router. I will do the testing without wiring the entire house, since the phone is not ported, and the pots line is still active.

here goes.

Cable modem to DLINK router (wan port)
Dlink router (Lan port) to Linksys Router (Wan Port).
all devices still plugging into DLINK ROUTER, only phone is plugged into Linksys router.

Enable MAC CLONE on the DLINK to clone the mac of the LINKSYS RTP300 ROUTER. Which in turn would give me a new ip.

DLINK is giving DHCP, LINKSYS will get IP from DLINK DHCP SCOPE .

now thats the way I originally thought it would work...but also saw this way as well.


Below:


Cable modem to RTP Linksys (Wan Port)
Linksys (Lan Port) to DLINK Wireless G Router (Lan port).
Linksys will be primary DHCP, push the DHCP through the DLINK router, which is now a switch...and all devices should get DHCP.

with RTP as first point of entry into the house .

any thoughts?

If the Dlink is a good router with QoS, then you should go with your first setup, configuring the Dlink to favor the Vonage box to assure good quality on the phone. However, you do not have to do the MAC cloning business. Your modem will handle MAC ID with your ISP as it's doing now. Your Vonage box will get its IP via the Dlink DHCP and "call home". It will handle reporting its own MAC to the Vonage system; you don't have to worry with it.

here is what I did in the end.

LINKSYS Phone adapter as first point of entry from cable modem.

So it goes, Cable modem > Wan port on linksys > Lan port on linksys goes into LAN port on DLINK router. The DLINK router was demoted to a switch, but still handling all WEP handshakes in the network.

The LINKSYS phone adapter is handling all DHCP ip's, including anything that is plugged into the switch.

Seems to be working ok. I am using the high bandwidth setting. to get optimum sound...

Also testing the phone while downloading at FULL pipe, hitting 1.15 MB/s (yes, thats MEGABYTES) and no degradation of the signal (so far).

Only using it with 1 phone right now, 1 base....2 cordless phones...so we'll see how it is when I hook up the entire house with its wiring.

There was 1 instance though, when I couldnt hear anything at all, but the caller heard every word I said. I rebooted the router and it seemed to be fine after that.

Sounds good; what works works. If you start having problems, try the other way.

FYI, my QOS upstream rate on the router is 512kbps.

When im maxing my pipe...now i'm getting a little distortion and some crackling, but as soon as the download stops...its good.


Also, by default QOS was disabled, so im not sure if its at a high priority, or low priority when its disabled...so i enabled QOS.

and made everything a low priority except for voice which was set to high.
