PostPosted: Sat Apr 08, 2006 11:18 am    Post subject: Out of Ethernet Ports Reply with quote Back to top

My setup is - Cable Modem>Belkin Router>Phone Adaptor.
All the ports on the Belkin router are used up now. I want to use another phone adaptor from another Voip provider I have a account with. Can I simply plug this other adaptor into one of the available ports on my RT31P2? Or do I need an extra switch or hub coming off my Belkin router?

Thanks,
James

You could probably chain another phone adapter off of the switch ports on the RT31P2 bout I would not do it. It would be better to get another switch and use the uplink port on the switch to connect to the Belkin router.

Is something like this what I need? http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?categoryid=cat01033&id=1110266457435&skuid=7169244&type=product&ref=06&loc=01
Do I just plug it into the Belkin router and it will see the additional ports or is there configuration involved?
Thanks again!
James

That would do it. You would just free up one port on your Belkin router, connect that port to the uplink port on the switch. You can then connect devices to the remaining ports on the new switch. This should be transparent as if you are connected directly to the router and no other configuration is required.

The important thing is that you connect the new switch to the router using a port that is capable of being an uplink port. From the page you linked to I see:

Quote:
Auto negotiation ports support auto MDI/MDIX function, allowing each port to operate as un uplink or general port.

Another option, if one of the items plugged into the Belkin is a PC with modest internet usage requirements, would be to plug that PC into the RT31P2 and plug the new adapter into the port the PC vacated.

If I were to do that, would that put that PC on a different network?

Thanks,

Yes, it would put it on another sub-net and it wouldn't be able to talk to your other computers. That's probably fixable if you know more about networking than I do- not hard!

I know a little about networking (enough to set up my own) but I'd rather not take the time to figure out sub-nets. Keep it simple.
Thanks for your replies mharvey and Steve48!

All you would need to do to avoid the subnet problem is to go into the RT31P2 configuration page and turn off DHCP.
