PostPosted: Mon Jul 24, 2006 8:09 pm    Post subject: Motorola V2442 Router Fixed Voice But... Reply with quote Back to top

When I received my Motorola V2442 Router I plugged it into my D-Link DI-604 router and it all worked well until I really started to use the voice. I received intermittent complaints that I was breaking up when I could hear just fine.

I knew that the V2442 Router prioritized voice so I decided to make that my primary Router. Now the voice seems to be working great. However, I run a radio server from one of my computers. I have literally tried all day long to get my radio server working through the new router.

It's a matter of doing simple port forwarding to my computer that runs the radio server. With the D-Link and other routers I had no problem whatsoever getting a simple port forwarded to the computer. With this router it flat out does not work.

So now I have a choice; do I want good voice over the motorola, and drop a radio station that has been up for over 2 years going on 3 years, or keep the radio station and drop the Vonage router.

I know that using a router without voice priortiziation will give me the choppy and intermittent voice problems I was having.

Does anybody have a working knowledge of port forwarding on the Motorola V2442? I went to [web]http://www.portforward.com/routers.htm[/web] and did exactly what it told me to do and it still does not work.

Has anybody got port forwarding to work on this router?

Thanks

From what I looked up, the DI-604 is not a wireless router... therefore why not just plug your computer into the Motorola and disconnect the D-Link altogether. My guess is that your computer is plugged into the D-Link, which is plugged into the Motorola. In this scenario, you have two NAT devices (routers) chained which is probably messing up port forwarding.

PostPosted: Tue Jul 25, 2006 8:34 am    Post subject: Clarification Of Problem Reply with quote Back to top

I originally had my home network connected to the D-Link which worked. Including the port forwarding to my radio server. I have 3 computers on my home network.

I then got the Vonage V2442 Router which I plugged into into the existing D-Link Router, it worked, however, people were complaining that when I spoke on the Vonage line I was cutting out and the quality of me talking to people was intermittently very bad. I could hear just fine.

I figured the problem was because I had the Vonage V2442 router plugged into another router which caused some delay, plus the V2442 Router prioritizes voice. So I made the V2442 my primary router.

Now the voice works but the advanced features of the Motorola V2442 (port forwarding) is not working for my radio station.

I have tried everything so I am assuming that I have a defective router or the firmware of the router has a problem.

I will call Vonage today about sending out another router.

If anyone has got port forwarding to work on the V2442 router, I am all ears. The reason I picked this router is because it prioritizes voice over the internet connection. I understand the D-Link from Vonage does not have this capability.

I am guessing the problem is due to having both the Motorola and D-Link function as routers. That is not going to work well with port forwarding. You need to configure the D-Link as a switch as opposed to a router. Do the following with the D-Link:

- turn off dhcp (make sure the motorola has this enabled)
- turn off nat
- set a static IP address on the same subnet as the motorola
- connect D-Link to Motorola using numbered ports only (not WAN port).

To clarify. There is no more D-Link. I am only using the Motorola V2442. The port forwarding is not working on the Motorola.

It worked on the D-Link. I did not have to set up a static IP on the subnet for the radio server to work with the D-Link to work.

The motorola recognizes the radio server as an fixed ip no matter what port I plug it into. However, I will try setting up the radio server with a Static IP anyway to see if that does anything.

Thanks for your input

Ahh, I see... I misunderstood your first post and somehow assumed you were using both devices. Well in that case, it should be cut and dry. Although it may not be necessary depending on your network, it is usually a good idea to set a static IP for the target computer used in port forwarding. You can also try using the ipconfig command on the radio server to verify the correct IP address to port forward to.

PostPosted: Tue Jul 25, 2006 7:51 pm    Post subject: I have done the ipconfig command until I am blue in the face Reply with quote Back to top

I have used the run cmd and done ipconfig numerous times. The IP is always the same, even after I reset the router, default the router, and even move the radio server to a different port on the router. The ip for the radio server is 192.168.15.3. I have forwarded the incoming ip of 0.0.0.0 with a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0 to 192.168.15.3 port 80 only no ranges and it flat out does not work. I disabled the firewall and it still does not work.

I am wondering if anyone has tried port forwarding with this router?

On the D-Link all you have to do is specify the subnet IP address and what port you want to open up and it works. On the Motorola you can do custom port forwarding or apply rules which basically do the same thing for different subnet addresses. I am thinking that I have a bad router.

I even tried opening port 8080 which the software supports and it still did not work. The software requires TCP and I have set that up as well.

I am at a loss.

Any other ideas?

I called Vonage tech support, they are sending me out a new Router. I was very suprised that I was able to reach knowledgable tech support in a timely manner in the evening.

The tech support people know routers and exactly what I am trying to do. No questions asked they are sending me a new router. It should be here tomorrow!

So did you have to pay shipping for returning your old router?

I am having intermittent choppy audio problems with the same motorola router that you have....

I used to have a linksys RTP300 router, it developed a 60 cycle hum.

The new router took care of that problem, but my voice is always choppy when I talk to someone else with this router, with no other changes made.

Any nodes in my home connected to the router are spyware and virus free.

I am wondering if I will have to pay to ship out this potentially defective router that i just got. Last time they were determined to make me pay for my old router as per their terms of service, but I got a month free in lieu of that. I still lost 5 days of service due to that, so I am at my wits end.

The new router has the same problem as the old v2442. As a matter of fact this one acts stranger.

As far as shipping, I assume I am going to have to pay for return shipping because there is no return prepaid label.

I ended up putting my D-Link back in as my main router so my radio station would stay up.

I am going to need to look for a router other than the D-Link DI-604 that will allow me to prioritize the ip for the motorola. I will be contacting Motorola directly.

There is a bug in this router if it cannot do basic port fowarding!

The dilema is I want my voice to work correctly and my server as well.

We will see. It looks like I am going to have to eat the shipping.
