PostPosted: Mon Jul 31, 2006 4:44 pm    Post subject: Motorola V2442 v. Linksys WRTP54G Reply with quote Back to top

Many of you have probably already read about my problems doing port forwarding with the Motorola V2442. If flat out is not working with my Pirate Radio Broadcaster software.

At portforward.com they give the setup, I have tried everything and I have the same problem with two V2442's that I presently have in my possession.

There is a definite Bug in the Router. With my DLink DI-604 plugged in it works perfectly, but my voice is degraded with the V2442 plugged directly into the DLink. I need voice prioritization.

Now the question; Has anyone done port forwarding on the Linksys? Does it work?

Are there any issues with the Linksys on the voice side that I should be worried about?

I am running a cable connection and the speed test shows that I can run 4 voice calls at the same time.

I want the voice to work, but I also want my radio station to be back up.

Should I switch to the linksys?

Port forwarding works fine on my WRTP54G. I also have no issues with the Linksys on the voice side. I did add to my network a Hawking HBB1 for QoS priortization...the WRTP54G lacks in this department.

I'd go with a WRT54GL, and just put the Motorola behind it. Its less expensive, and more capable than the WRTP54G.

My problem is that when I put the Motorola behind my existing D-Link that works with port forwarding, I get voice degradation.

I guess I just need to find another router on which the port forwarding works, and has A Quality of Service setup to give priority to the Motorola Router for voice.

Can you tell me more about the Hawking and how much it cost?

So the Linksys does not have QoS settings?

Thanks

PostPosted: Tue Aug 01, 2006 2:49 pm    Post subject: A Question about the Hawking Reply with quote Back to top

I just did some research on the Hawking. Will this device work with multiple routers. Lets say I plug my DLink DI-604 which works with port forwarding into the hawking, and then the Motorola V2442 into the DLink, will it still prioritize my voice?

Or should I just get the Linksys for port forwarding and plug it all into the Hawking?

From what I looked at on the hawkingtech.com web site, the HBB1 sits between your cable or dsl modem and your router...I do not know if it will work with multiple routers. I would contact Hawking and ask them specifically if what you are trying to accomplish is capable with the HBB1. If not, "Arcking's" suggestion is the more cost-effective approach to take. Instead of purchasing a WRTP54G and the Hawking HBB1, you can purchase the more superior router, WRT54GL from newegg.com for about $70.00

PostPosted: Tue Aug 01, 2006 6:15 pm    Post subject: Purchased the Hawking Reply with quote Back to top

I just went out to Fry's Electronics and purchased the Hawking Booster. It cost $59.95 with a $10.00 rebate for a total of $49.95.

I am going to play with it tonight. I was looking at the 54GL routers at the store but they do not have the voice ports that I need.

Tech support from Vonage just sent me an email telling me that the Vonage V2442 Router is meant more for voice over ip and not to run servers on. I found that out after 3 days trying to get the server to work. It is amazing that a $29.95 DLink DI-604 runs my server perfectly but the motorola does not.

I will check out the Hawking with the Hawking going to the cable modem, then to the DLink as my main router and then plug the Motorola into the DLink.

If that does not work with respect to voice quality then I will get the Linksys G Vonage router. I do not need the wireless, I just want port forwarding to work for my Pirate Radio Broadcaster software, and good voice quality.

I am planning on getting a second Vonage line as soon as they port my number over to Vonage. The voice quality to me is the highest priority in the line of priorities that I have, the second highest priority is being able to surf the net and get emails quickly, the 3rd highest priority is the radio server. I want it all.

I will let you all know how the Hawking works out. Thanks for the suggestions.

You would replace your D-Link with this router, or you could just use it the way you would use the Hawking. The WRT54GL is not supposed to have phone ports.

I understand. I am going to first try the cable modem-hawking-dlink-motorola v2442, setup first. If that does not do it then I will go with the router your are recommending. At least I can set of QoS on the Linksys for the V2442. I have some testing to do tonight.

Being an old time engineer, I get off on this stuff. I will let you know how it goes.

The Hawking HBB1 is a plug n play device that automatically configures your network for optimal performance, so you should know rather quickly if this device will work for you.
