PostPosted: Fri Nov 10, 2006 11:03 am    Post subject: Port Forwarding with Linksys WRT54G and Motorola V2442 Reply with quote Back to top

Hi All

This is my first time posting on this site. I am also very new to the Vonage setup and here is my problem. Yesterday, I was trying to setup a Static IP and port forwarding for my torrrents, because it seems that I can download fine, but my upload ratio is not very good. Well, I ended up messing up and not being able to connect to the internet and had to call Vonage Tech support to troubleshoot my Motorola router. Well he setup PPPoE on the motorola and made it the first dedicated router, then my linksys second. Well, this does not help me at all because now there is no wireless connection throughout my house. The way he told me to set it up is have my dsl modem connect to the motorola adapter and then have the adapter hook up to the linksys wireless router, and then have my computer hardwired to the wireless router. But before I messed up the settings, I had it reversed and had the dsl modem going into the wireless router and then into the phone adapter. So now, I want to reverse the process that the Vonage Tech Support guy have me do, so I can obtain my wireless again throughout the house. Also, I am interested in learning about port forwarding, because my upload ratio on my torrent site is not very good, and do not want to get kicked out. I am currently using Bitlord. Any help would be Greatly appreciated.!!

Welcome aboard. You've posted this in the hard wiring forum. You'll get a better response if you post it over in the Voip forum. That's where more networking issues are discussed.

Basically, what you're trying to do shouldn't be too hard. You need to set up the Linksys to establish the connection that the Motorola is establishing now. Plug your computer into a LAN port on the Motorola and access its admin page. Make some careful notes about how the WAN (internet) side of the Motorola is set up. Then change its WAN setup to DHCP. Power down and remove the Motorola from the setup, plugging your modem into the WAN port of the Linksys. Plug your computer into a LAN port on the Linksys and configure the WAN side of the Linksys the way the Motorola used to be, using your notes. Reboot and you should have internet access via the Linksys. Now plug the WAN port of the Motorola into a LAN port on the Linksys, reboot, and you should have phone service.

Very good. I'd take it over to the Voip forum now; I don't know anything about the port forwarding myself.

you are talking about your torrrents is not working...is that the FTP thing that you are using to download mp3's and file...if your ftp manager is not working, you need to know what is the port being used by that application...most FTP or file transfer Protocol managers like torrrents is using port 21 so you just have to open that port...with Vonage port 21 is already open from default becuase Vonage is using it as one of those port for UDP or User Datagram Protocol...these port is being use to transport the live voice packets...

maybe you need to call your software distributor and ask them what ports you need to open in order for it to work...

Please don't take it personally... but you 'REALLY' have no clue what a torrent is... I understand you are trying to help but sometimes it's better to let others answer...

Yes, Torrents are you could say a type of 'FTP' as in it's meaning (ie a 'file transfer protocol') but so is http. Torrent is a method of P2P, but it does not use port 21. Neither does Vonage or Voip in general.

to the OP, go to the the other forum ...
