I just got my Motorola router and it does not go beyond 4 blinks.

The set up is as follows. Motorola Speedstream 5660 DSL Router conected to one of the 4 ports of a Linksys WRT55AG Wireless Router, Laptop conected to port #2, Office Hub connected to Port #3 and Vonage conected from PC port to Port #4.

The WAN port on Linksys is empty since I was never able to make it work so I ended up putting my DSL on one of the four ports.

The Speedstream DSL is my laptops gateway and DSL conects with Specific DNS but no static IP.

After I put in my DNS, Gateway and any IP on Vonage, I get it to step of 4 Blinks and stays there, no more. It does get info on my phone number and firmware is version e .

What am I doing wrong.

Try this next: put the ATA DIRECTLY behind the modem and reboot the modem. Give it five minutes and see if the light goes solid and you get a dial tone. If not, you likely have a bad ATA. If it does we've eliminated that and can try to figure out your kinda' convoluted setup.

Why multiple routers? Which one is assigning IPs? Can you forward ports through all this?

I assume this is your broadband source, right?

So you're using the Linksys as a switch, I think. Alright so far.
Quote:

Does this mean what I think it means, that your ATA's "PC" port is plugged into the Linksys? If it is, that's wrong, plug the ATA's WAN port into the Linksys/

That's fine, I think, as you're only using the switch function of the Linksys. I believe that's right, anyway.
Quote:

Is that a wireless device, too? Or do you have it's IP address (likely 192.168.xx.xx) listed as "gateway" for your laptop? I'm not sure what you're saying here.

That means it can't register with the Vonage servers.

Can you plug your ATA directly into the DSL router? Can that router assign IP addresses (provide DHCP)?

Ok, I tried conecting directly to DSL and still stays in 4 Blinks.

I do not know where to put this but the DSL has an specific IP which I use as my PC Gateway.

I do get my tel # info on the Vonage Box, when I access the setup interface. So I guess that means that it did comunicate with Vonage, but does not finish what it has to do.

Our Ips are static on my network, the Linksys Router, the DSL and my PC are all programed with specific IP.

Can it be a port or IP problem, since my linksys router has a different IP than 192.168.X.X and my DSL is different than 10.0.0.1 or 2.

Can your DSL "source" assign IPs, or does it need to have the devices it talks to have thos already assigned?

It could be, yes. I can't recall at the moment if you can assign the WAN-side IP from the PC interface or if this box needs DHCP. I'll have to look later. Kind of strange that it's able to get part way through, though.

I just looked it up and you can provide the Moto box a fixed IP. Does your provider insist on your using a single IP? If so, set the Moto box to that address and put it in first behind the modem and reboot the modem, see what happens.

If it works, at least you know the box is ok.

Again, I'm still not sure I understand your topology. You have a "DSL router?" Does that box have multiple Ethernet ports? Does everything you plug into that have an IP assigned by that box, or do you have to set their IPs to values provided by your ISP?

You guys are really helpfull. And by the way this forum is much better than many other I visit.

Ok, I am sorry fort the mixup, it is DSL modem with ONE ethernet port that currently goes to my Linksys and a phone cord that goes to the wall.

I do not know if I can attach word documents to this forum but if you want I could send you the setup interface info page on the DSL, the Linksys Router and the Vonage Box.

I have a private network with specific IP's, then the DSL modem has a specific IP that I put in for my lan that serves as my laptop's gateway.

The wan on the DSL has dynamic IP I believe.

I tried doing direct Modem>>Moto>>PC but the same thing happens and stays on 4 blinks.

I am trying to tell you everything I think you want, please ask me and will answer or try to answer the best way possible.

I really would not like to send it back because I am messing up installation and the Moto could be OK.

It MIGHT be one other thing. Some modems (usually cable modems, but possibly DSL, too) are set to only work with one MAC address. Call your ISP and ask them if there could be issues with that, perhaps because you bought a new computer or network card. If that is the case they should be able to walk you through resetting the modem to work with it.

Question

I've been thinking that "your DSL" is your raw broadband connection, with all ports open to the Internet. Is it? Exactly what hardware (mfg. and model #) do you mean by your "DSL?"
