PostPosted: Wed May 10, 2006 4:07 pm    Post subject: How to place Motorola VT2442 in existing network? Reply with quote Back to top

I currently have a network consisting of Motorola Surfboard Cable Modem -> Linksys WRT54G -> Linksys PAP2 Vonage adapter.

Vonage is sending me a replacement which is the Motorola VT2442 according to the order details. This is itself an adapter/router correct? Just looking for some information ahead of time on how I should place the Motorola VT2442 in the network. Can it be configured simply as a switch and connect to the internet through the WRT54G? Or does it have to connect directly into the cable modem?

Thanks for you time.

Yes you can use it as a switch, I do. I changed it's WAN and LAN address to fit my IP scheme here (10.100.1.x), and I turned DHCP off. One thing to remember is that you have have to plug both the WAN port and and LAN port into your router (or another switch/hub) on your network or it will not provision...

On the other hand, you can simply plug it's WAN port into the Linksys, the same way that you're currently using the PAP2. You needn't use its router properties at all.

Fair enough on the provisioning of the Wan port, however one should not have to connect both Lan and Wan port into the other router, the VT2442 should have the DHCP relay turned onto the gateway of the main router with only one chord between the two devices.

Interesting work around though, but not practical in a larger setting, you will end up using two ports for every VT2442 you have in the network.

(Attempting to install 8 VT2442 at an office to bring company onto Vonage, but the settings are not holding on the device,) good luck either way

cygnus, did you contact Vonage (particularly the link on the left hand side here at vonage-forum that says "questions? have special needs?" they have different equipment for businesses and multiple lines.

You would think that would be the case but I could not get it to provision. It was just dumb luck that I had the WAN and LAN ports both plugged in.

It's only for my home so no biggie...

Hi guys.

Everything's working, I've got the VT2442 connecting through the WRT54G. Not using it as a router, just set it a static IP so I can easily config it from my computer connected to the WRT and tucked it away.

Did you end up using two cables? (one on the WAN and one on the LAN) or did you manage to get DHCP relay working? I have been trying to get DHCP relay working, but to no avail...the motorola router seems very non-intuitive!!!

Does having the two cables plugged in like that cause network problems? (it doesn't really make sense to me?!)

Anyone?!

Hi. I just have one cable going from my router to the VT2442, connected to its WAN port. Everything works fine. I use the VT2442 exclusively as a phone adapter, all router functions are turned off and i've assigned it a static IP for connecting to my default gateway (the other router). DHCP server and relay have been turned OFF. Below is a diagram of my network that I have. I've set QoS in the WRT54G to give priority to Voip traffic coming from the VT2442.

Right, but the original question of this thread was how to hook up the Motorola router, and use it as a SWITCH, and have the other router do the DHCP assigning for the WHOLE network (including what's plugged in the lan of the motorola)
