PostPosted: Sun Apr 23, 2006 10:17 pm    Post subject: Two Moto routers behind a router; home network cut in two Reply with quote Back to top

Hi All.
I had a Cable modem with a Belkin F5D8230-4 Pre-N Wireless router; then two computers hooked off that. Everything hardwired. I just got Vonage with two separate billing lines - one for my wife and one for me. To make this work, we had two get two separate Motorola VT2442 routers. I hooked both of these up downstream from the Belkin router, and then put the computers on the LAN side of of the Motorola routers.
Overall similar to the diagrams at http://vonage.nmhoy.net/tworouters.html, but there are two Vonage routers.

The problem I'm running into is that the computers plugged into the routers cannot see each other (browse Windows shared files, etc.). They used to be able to see each other before I put the Vonage routers in. I tried setting DHCP passthrough on the VT2442 router, but that just broke *everything* and I had to set it back.

Any ideas? Option 3 in http://vonage.nmhoy.net/tworouters.html sounds interesting, but I'm not sure if it's the best, or if it would work with two Vonage routers.

Another idea is to just buy a couple of cheap switches and put them in front of the Vonage routers, with the computers coming off of them. However, I did want the QOS improvements by having the computers behind the Vonage routers.

Thanks,
Bob

Since the QoS improvements are not going to exist (due to the fact that even if the Vonage routers' QoS works, they are going to be upstreaming to your Belkin which will have to re-prioritize the bandwidth anyway) I'd say go for the switches, and configure your Belkin QoS (if it exists) as follows:

- Tune your Belkin QoS as best you can in terms of upstream bandwidth.
- Both Vonage MAC addresses = HIGHEST
- Everything else according to your tastes, but nothing else nearly as high as Vonage MAC addresses.

http://vonage.nmhoy.net/qos.html is a basic guide on how QoS works. I don't know how well it works on your Belkin, or even if the Belkin has it, but it might lead you in the right direction on setting it up, and help you with reasonable expectations when it is set up.

Option "3" in my setup guide tells you how to turn the switch on your Vonage router into a switch you can use to feed the router. As far as I know, it willl work with as many Vonage routers as you wish, though I'd set their "LAN IP Address" or local IP addresses to different subnets (192.168.15.x for one and 192.168.16.x for another, and both different from your Belkin).

That would save you the expense of a switch, but also put a potential (though unlikely) circular route in your network, and also make the configuration screens inaccessible for some reason. However, a few people are using the configuration and swear by it. I'd recommend the cheap switch, though. Wink

Thanks for the quick feedback! I already had one switch, so I'll just pick up another - about $20 at Best Buy. According to http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic3647.html the Belkin has auto-QOS so I sem set.
Thanks again for your site and helping out us newbies!

Best wishes,
Bob
