PostPosted: Sat Jul 15, 2006 10:25 pm    Post subject: How Do I Set Voice Priority on Motorola VT1005V? Reply with quote Back to top

I have the Motorola VT1005V connected to a netgear router. Is it possible to set it up so voice traffic always gets the highest priority over internet traffic from my computer?

Every time I start a large download on my computer, somebody calls me and my phone is all choppy because of the download and it's very annoying. Do I need to buy a special linksys Vonage router to do this kind of setting?

I also have the Motorola VT1005 adapter and I thought that the Voip QoS was already implemented (p.29 of the manual). I don't have problems with voice quality during downloads.

How do you have your system configured?, i.e.:

- -> cable or DSL modem,
. then - V
Motorola VT1005 --> telephone,
. then - V
LAN (router/switch/computer/etc.).

With this configuration all traffic must go through the VT1005. I would think if your adapter is simply hooked to your LAN like any other device, it wouldn't manage the Voip QoS. In that case you would have to configure your router or cable/DSL modem to manage Voip traffic priority (if possible).

I think he pretty much described his setup as modem - netgear - mta. chances are your netgear does not have qos. check your manual. you can either do what xnewuser recommends and put the mta first, or get a real router like a linksys wrt54gl for instance, replace your netgear, and setup qos with it. the mta is pretty much a wimpy device that was designed for the average home web surfer who has one computer and no network. that's not to say it won't work for you, but others have had issues. might as well give it a shot, after all, it could be a free solution.

ya, my setup was modem > netgear > then mta. I changed it so now it's modem > mta > netgear. The switch has helped improve the QoS but I still notice downloading and web surfing interrupts the quality of my calls but not as much as before. A new problem I have now though is that my website that sits on a server behind my netgear doesn't work anymore. The mta doesn't seem to be forwarding the requests coming in on port 80 to my netgear router. Is there any way to get it to do that, or do I need to replace both my mta and netgear with a linksys router like the wrt54gl?

You might want to check out the advanced configuration page of your Motorola VT1005. It looks like you can open specific ports with the virtual server options or even set a DMZ. Refer to page 22 in the manual.

tdoman: I had the same issues as you, where I am hosting Windows SBS server with email and web hosting, in addition to my Vonage Motorola VT1005 adapter. I basically needed to turn off the NAT routing that the VT1005 adapter does, but could not. Nor could I reroute all the ports to be able to host effectively. I tried using Linksys BEPSR81 router because it has QoS configuration, but it still did not fix it.

But I eventually got PERFECT service now. What I ended up do is get 2 static IPs from my ISP, put a switch in, setup the network router and the Vonage adapter with separate static IP addresses, and added the Hawking Broadband Voip QoS Booster. So I have
Code:

modem => switch => hawking booster => vt1005
                => LAN router => SBS server
                              => workstations

I get no phone problems on 2 simultaneous lines, including faxing. And network setup is easy and not affected by Vonage considerations.

Hope this helps

mharr: that's sounds like a great option that would work; however, I was looking for something cheaper to get me by, but I appreciate the advice!

xnewuser: I checked out the config screens on my Motorola VT1005. I used the virtual server section even though I'm not sure if that is the same thing as port forwarding. I set the IP address be to the WAN IP address of my router because the the WAN port of my router is connected to the PC port of my VT1005. Then for the port I entered in 80 and under Transport I selected Both (TCP and UDP), even though I probably only need to select TCP. Then I set my router to forward all incoming traffic on port 80 to my webserver. After saving the changes, I still couldn't get my webpage to come up. So I enabled the DMZ on the VT1005 and directed the IP address to my WAN port on my router and still no luck. So then I scanned the WAN IP address of my VT1005 on port 80 with nmap and it came back saying that port 80 was filtered when it seems like it should have been open. Also, I know my router is configured right cause when I move it back in from of my VT1005 (modem > router > VT1005) then my webserver works fine.

So I don't think the VT1005 will allow port 80 traffic through unfiltered and redirect it to my router that is sitting behind it.

Is your router or server expecting to be the external address? As I remember from trying this, the router or server on the inside of the VT1005 will not have the external address. Even with port forwarding, your router/server will have to accept dhcp address from the vt1005.

I just did not know enough about tcp, forwarding, and routers to understand how to get it all setup behind two NAT routers.

my router is not expecting a public address. It will take whatever ip address on the WAN port the DHCP server sends it because I have it setup to automatically obtain it's WAN ip address from a DHCP server. Therefore, when placed behind the VT1005, the VT1005 will assign my router a private 192.168.102.x address, which would be ok if the VT1005 would forward ports. That way if a request comes in on port 80 at the external ip assigned to the VT1005, then if I have a rule setup on the VT1005 to forward all incoming traffic on port 80 to the private address of my router (192.168.102.x), my router will pickup the request coming in on it's WAN port (192.168.102.x) and forward the request on to my webserver based on the same port forwarding rule I have setup in my router. Hopefully that makes sense.

The problem is that the in the Advance Configuration screen of the VT1005, it doesn't seem to have port forwarding capability. I thought the virtual server section was the same as port forwarding, but it doesn't seem to be working the way I've described in the paragraph above.
