Hi -
I just got Vonage yesterday with a VT2442. It installed fine as a secondary router after my Netgear wireless router. Now that it's stolen a socket on the Netgear I need the computer plugged into the Motorola to see the other computers on the network. I fiddled with turning off DHCP and making IP static but something went wrong and the powerlight started flashing.

Suely there must be a step by step set of instructions for the VT2442 for newbies on this issue as it must happen every day. Or could one of you guys guide me through it?

Thanks

Earlier in this thread there was a solution posted (using two cables), but I'm trying to find a way to just do it with ONE, as that seems like the more proper way to do this (especially since this router HAS "DHCP RELAY"...you'd think that's all you have to enable)

I'm hoping someone wiser than me could explain how to do this with ONE cable.

I used the two cable method but it clearly didn't work with the settings I had. Surely this isn't a rare question. I think I will start a new thread unless i get an answer soon.

Why would you have to use two cables? Couldn't you just connect one of the Vonage router LAN ports to a LAN port on the wireless router and connect the PC to another LAN port on the wireless router? It's just really a phone adapter isn't it? I wouldn't even imagine that you would have to connect any of the PC(s) to the Vonage router as long as it was connected to the wireless router. Would you really have to disable DHCP on the Vonage router if you aren't connecting anything to it but an RJ11 phone line?

Confused

I just became a Vonage customer and have the same equipment as mentioned in this topic, the Linksys WRT54G and the Motorola VR2442. Everything was fine until I discovered that the computer I had hooked up to the Motorola router couldn't talk to the rest of my computers. It seems that the DHCP Relay should work so this computer could get the IP address from the Linksys and after talking to Vonage support, they couldn't help me either.

Since the last post here was in July, I'm hoping that somebody got this working correctly with the Linksys being the DHCP server and using only one cable between the two. Anybody?

No replies yet but this morning I tried the 2 cable method and did get that to work so am happy at the moment. It would be nice to get it to work the correct way the with the relay. I went from 3 open ports on the back of the router to just 1 now, but I don't need any more at the moment anyway.

There was one poster that said the 2 cable method didn't work, so I'll briefly explain what I did. On the Motorola router, just changed the WAN to a static IP address aligned with the normal Linksys IP addresses of 192.168.1.140, and made sure the gateway 192.168.1.1 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0 were entered. Then on the LAN config page set both server and relay off. That's it.

Still would like to get it working correctly though. Confused

I seem to have gone against all prevailing advice and documentation and done it completely the other way round with great success and satisfaction.

Cable->Cable Modem->VT4224->WiFi Router.

I can't understand why this isn't the desired config. It solves a number of problems.

1) all my LAN devices behind my WiFi router have the same topology, although their packets take another hop, their subnet is as it has always been.

2) The WiFi Router (as far as it's concerned) has just jumped subnets, but could care less since he gets his address via DHCP.

3) All traffic going to and from the Internet are properly (in theory) QoS'd by VT2442, so my voice quality is wonderful. I've tested this and I do in fact get about a 30% sheer drop in bandwidth as soon as I make a call. No amount of network stress that I could generated seemed to change the sound quality.

4) If my WiFi security is compromised, there is still no risk of my voice calls getting sniffed (ie, someone can't tap by phone by hacking my WiFi <I've yet to see a secure WiFi config>).

5) I trust the NAT/Firewalling of my WiFi router more than that of Motorola, simply because I see Motorola as new to the business of small scale network security.

Any reason why what I've done is a bad config. The only thing I can come up with is that either:

a) Your provider requires RouterX behind their cable/DSL modem, for some reason that they can't explain.

b) Your RouterX is able to handshake with your cable/DSL modem in a way that VT2442 is not.

Thoughts?

What wi-fi router do you have? If it's the Linksys WRT54G, what exact settings did you have to change in its setup pages? I saw there was one setting that changed from Gateway to Router but am not sure if there are more.

Since your only problem seems to be that the computers on the different sub-nets can't talk to one another, you might want to take a look at this thread:

I understood most of that thread but will have to wait until I get home to try and understand the static route part. Thanks for the post.
