PostPosted: Sat Oct 21, 2006 7:43 pm    Post subject: Microsoft networking plus VOIP PBX Reply with quote Back to top

I'm setting-up a small business network running Microsoft networking via fast ethernet. However, I also want to run a small-box PBX (D-Link brand) with 4 separate Voip phones. Am I correct in assuming I'll need TWO separate routers to accomplish this...each on it's own subnet ? Also, each office workstation will need two separate RJ-45 connections, correct ? One for the phone and one for the computer network.
If I am wrong on any of this, please correct me.
Thanks in advance.

You're right with one minor change. Since Vonage equipment gives you a maximum of two lines per adapter, you will need two adapters. However, they needn't be router/adapters. You could use one router and two non-router adapters, like the D-link VTA or Linksys PAP2, plugged into the router on the same sub-net. Or you could use one router/adapter like the VT2442 and plug an adapter into its LAN for the other two lines.

I'm actually going with a Linksys router with 2 phone ports...I believe the model # is RT31P2....and now I see it makes sense that phones and workstations reside on the same subnet. Now it also makes sense to go with a 16 port hub for some potential expansion.

OK. Will you be going with 2 RT31P2s? How do you plan to network them? If you daisy chain them, you'll want to change the subnet address range on one or the other so the one second in line doesn't have the same address range on its LAN side and on its WAN side. If you plan to plug both into a primary router, that's good. I'd recommend that over plugging them both into a hub.

I don't think you "get it" regarding a PBX. If Vonage offers 2 lines, we'll use one for a dedicated FAX and the other for the PBX. Thru a SINGLE line, the PBX will handle MULTIPLE PHONES as extensions. I want to plug the phones into the same hub as the computer network. The Linksys router has the 2 Voip line option which is perfect in this case....but the wiring has me confused. For the dedicated FAX, will I need to make a direct connection from the Linksys router to the FAX for instance, or can I use the hub ? Same goes for the phones....I want to connect the other Voip jack on the router to the HUB with the Voip phones also connected to the same HUB.

You're right. I didn't get it and maybe still don't. When you said you wanted 4 separate Voip phones I thought you meant that you wanted 4 Vonage numbers piped to multiple ordinary phones via a PBX phone system. With actual Vonage registered Voip phones, you just need to hook each of them to your broadband connection via the router or hub. For the fax, you need to have one of the phone ports on the Vonage router/adapter activated and a dedicated run from the adapter phone port to the fax machine.

What you need to understand- and maybe you already do- is that a typical Vonage router/adapter, like the VT2442, will have one WAN ethernet port for connection to the broadband internet service and 1 or more (4 for the VT2442) ethernet LAN ports for ethernet devices (computers, printers, and, yes, Voip phones). In this respect it's just like any other router. It also has 1 or more (2 for the VT2442) ordinary phone ports, either or both of which can be activated to provide one ordinary phone line. There are no "VoIP" ports per se.
