PostPosted: Sun Nov 19, 2006 1:27 pm    Post subject: Linksys Router conn to D-Link wireless router w/MAC filter Reply with quote Back to top

I have a D-Link DI-524 wireless router connected to my cable-modem. (cable modem output to WAN connection on wireless router)
I then have my Vonage Linksys RT31P2 (WAN conn) connected to my D-Link wireless router (Ethernet 1 conn).

With no IP address or MAC filtering I am able to get a dial tone and make calls.


I then turned on MAC filtering on my D-Link and entered the MAC addresses of all my network devices, PC's wireless network cards, Vonage Linksys router, etc...

I am able to get all my other network devices to work, but my Vonage Linksys router. I have tried re-booting my Linksys router and notice that the POWER LED flashes during bott-up, then goes steady. The INTERNET LED appears to remain steady. Both PHONE port LED's light up for 1-2secs, tehn go dark and remain dark, and I cannot obtain a dial tone.

Any suggestions how to change my D-link settings or network configuration to allow the Vonage to work with MAC filtering?

Can't you do the setup like I did:
Cable Modem -> Linksys RT31P2 -> D-Link DI-524?

Wait 30 seconds in order of devices listed above. For example:

1. Plug in cable modem.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in Linksys RT31P2.
4. Wait 30 seconds.
5. Plug in D-Link DI-524.
6. You're done.

It's a whole lot easier since you don't have to configure your router to work with your Linksys RT31P2, assuming your cable modem acts as a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) and assigns IP address to your router. It's better to have Linksys RT31P2 in front of D-Link DI-524 since you get better call quality from there because of QoS (Quality of Service) consistency and less number of hops from routers to routers to get to the Internet and from the Internet.

I found I had MAC cloning ENABLED on my Linksys router. Once I turned this off it worked fine with MAC filtering enabled on my D-link wireless.

I'm glad to hear that you got it working. However, there is a bigger issue with call quality b/c you have the Dlink in front of your Vonage adapter. The reason is b/c the Dlink does not have QoS abilities and therefore, if everyone is on the internet, your call quality will most likely suffer. To prevent this, you will want your Vonage adapter first so that it controls which data goes first (i.e. your phone conversation before any other computer).

I would take Grayson's advice and I have done the same with my own set up and I turned the Dlink into a switch and not a router to prevent any conflicts with my rt31p2.

See my post here...

D-Link 524 still has Gaming Mode.

Log in to D-Link DI-524, and look in Tools -> Misc -> Gaming Mode.

But because I have a TTY, I still go with modem to ATA (analog telephone adapter) to router. So again, if you have someone who has a TTY (but even if you don't), you'd want to have it setup as modem to ATA to router.

Also, since I read that you're using a MAC filter in your D-Link for your wireless, MAC filter is not a good ideal. Anyone, including passerbys (those who're in a car, searching for wireless networks as they travel), can use a laptop or a wireless handheld device (known as a wireless personal digital assistant, or PDA for short) to clone a MAC (every physical computer has a MAC address). So after password-cracking (dictionary attack, for example), they can claim the PDA is yours (even though you don't have one, as an assumption) and can access your wireless network, like for downloading illegal music files, videos, etc. which can slow down your network and use all your bandwidth.

So strong password with no commonly used "came-from-dictionary" words, with vowels replaced by numbers, can help make your network secure. But there's more than that. If you update your router's firmware, wireless network drivers, and download WPA2 Update for Windows XP Service Pack 2, then you can use WPA2 (better than WPA and WEP). Don't use WEP -- WEP stands for Wired Equavelancy Protection and you can configure it for either 64-bit or 128-bit encryption. But there's a catch--because you're creating a hexidecimal password (0-9 and A-F (A is 11 and F is 16)), no matter how strong you make it, hackers will find a way to crack the hexidecimal password. But keep in mind -- some devices may only accept WEP and some devices may accept both WEP and WPA. So better check the user's manual for wireless encryption support.

I may be wrong but I hope I can be of any help to you.
