PostPosted: Mon Jun 14, 2004 6:40 pm    Post subject: Problems with MTA Behind Router (Netgear RP614 v2) Reply with quote Back to top

Alright, I recently set up a webserver on my PC and I needed to forward port 80 to be able to allow access to it. I had tried port forwarding through the MTA (I had the router hooked into the MTA), but it didn't work. I spent countless hours with tech support and in the end, I moved the MTA behind the router. Everything was pretty much okay for a couple of weeks, but then I started getting disruptions in service. People were saying that I was cutting in and out and that I was hard to understand. Before I moved the MTA behind the router, I never experienced this problem. Right now, the router needs to be reset about every hour (I think it's because too much data is going through the router, that's what tech support said). As one can see, having to reset the router every hour is very inconvienent. Is there any way to fix this problem? I have no clue what to do.

Okay, I think the disconnecting problem is fixed, but people are still saying that I'm fading in and out. I lowered the voice quailty to 50kbps at the start of this whole endevour. If I raised it back up to 90kbps, would that fix the problem?

It turns out that my dad got fed up with it and told me to set it back to have the MTA in front of the router. Is there anyway to still configure port forwarding for my web server, even though the MTA is in front?

I have a cordless Radioshack ET3514. The only reason that I don't suspect it to the phone, is because everything is working flawlessly with the MTA in front of the router. Is it possible that the MTA is defective and needs to be replaced? (the port forwarding on the MTA doesn't work, even when there's only one PC hooked up to it, no router). I believe it should have worked with just one computer, correct me if I'm wrong.

If you place the TA behind your router, you'll lose the built-in QOS functions. In order for the TA to ensure you have the bandwidth necessary for your calls, it must be in front of your router and directly behind the cable modem.

Another possibility is that you are just experiencing Internet latency. The TCP/IP protocols do not provide for end-to-end QOS, so Vonage service depends on successfully routing your call through the public Internet.

The fact that the problem started when you moved the TA, should make the solution obvious.

Well, I figured it needed to stay in front, but that still doesn't totally solve my problem. I need to be able to forward ports for my web server. Are there any detailed instructions on how to forward ports through the MTA because I've been trying for the past 3 hours with no luck at all. And like I stated before. I removed the router from the whole setup and just placed one computer on the MTA, tried to forward ports, and it still didn't work. From what I understand, it should. Thoughts?

Moto, I've already tried that and I got worst phone stability. Disconnects of the phone and the internet every hour or so. With the box in front, everything but port forwarding works. That's the only thing I need to fix. I don't know what your internal setup is Moto (LAN, gateway, and subnet IPs) but if it works behind your router, maybe you could tell me what you're using for the LAN IP and gateway for the MTA.

This was my setup: Cable modem -> Router ->Moto -> 3 PCs into the back of the router. One PC had a static IP, the others cannot have a static IP (they're being used for home and the office and so they're configuration can't be changed, it's a company policy).

I upgraded my firmware to version 5.20 RC3 when you told me to update it. I did not do port forwarding. I tried at one point, but after doing so the MTA would no longer be able to establish a connection (the light kept blinking twice). It still had the disconnecting and people still found it hard to hear on the other end. I'm kind of at a loss.

Alright, when I get a chance to try another phone, I will. If anyone else has a suggestion, please share it with me. Thanks.
