PostPosted: Tue Oct 05, 2004 10:37 pm    Post subject: Can't install the motorola phone adapter in front of router Reply with quote Back to top

I can install it between the cable modem and the router and the phone works fine, but my pc's cannot access the net. I cannot even ping the phone adapter.
If I install it behind the router then everything works except I still cannot ping or log into the phone adapter.

But I really need to install it between the modem and router so it can use the QoS. I download alot of files and this really ruins my reception.

Any ideas?

I ended up installing the phone adapter after the router (A Linksys) so that it shares the connection with the rest of the computers. To do this, I temporarily connected a computer to the Computer port on the Phone adapter to give it a Static IP (192.168.1.50) address and manually set the gateway to the router (192.168.1.1). Once this was done, I moved back to a router connection and set the port-forwarding for the phone adapter: 53, 69, 5060-5061, 10000-20000 All UDP Only.

This has been working reliably for a month now.

I have it working after the router. That's not a problem.

But I need to get it working BEFORE the router.

Why? Is your modem so slow as to make that much of a difference?

It is because I am constantly downloading large files that eat up all my bandwidth(3mbps down and 256kbps up). Having it installed after the router gives the phone adapter very little bandwidth while I am doing this. Which leads to very crappy reception.

If I put it before the router it can then take all the bandwidth it needs and give me perfect calls.

Well, it can be placed between the router and modem, but a few problems arise. Some routers have an option to switch it to a bridge (disabling the DHCP/firewall services.). This can be done and then the phone adapter effectively becomes the router.

Another route (what I would do) is to set the router to a static address to the phone adapter's range (I don't like the DHCP of the adapter.). Unfortunately, the phone adapter's port forwarding stinks. Each only allows setting one port and there aren't enough of them. Ideally, I'd set forwarding in the phone adapter to forward all ports 0-65535 to the router's address. This would still block the UDP ports the adapter needs for itself. Then forwarding would be handled entirely by the router.

I cannot log into the phone adapter to forward any ports. I can't even ping the thing.

Like I said, the DHCP on the adapter stinks. It's difficult, if not impossible for the router to get an IP address from it. It's best to manually set the router to a static address that will access the adapter.

it sounds like you need to set a bandwith limit on your downloads. You can do it on most routers, but the easiest way is to use a download manager. This way you can install it after the router, and it will still work well

archer75,

I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your phone adapter. Just a quick suggestion.

To try to deal with the inability to access the phone adapter consider doing the following:

Connect only the motorola adapter to your computer using an ethernet cable between computer and the adapter's LAN port. This will create an isolated system. Don't connect the adapter to the modem or to your other router. Just connect the two together (the computer and your motorola adapter). Then type in the url (I don't know specifically what the motorola's url is specifically but it should be in the user's guide). Then you should be able to get in there and make any adjustments.

Before proceeding, what is the model number of your router and your cable modem anyway?

Regarding your inability to connect to the internet when it is between the modem and your other router, I suspect conflict issues here.

1. You connected from the motorola's LAN port to your router's "internet" or WAN port. You probably left the router in its default configuration. The result, two routers working as if they are the routers will introduce major conflicts.

2. Having both routers run NAT and DHCP will result in all kinds of conflicts.

One possible solution if you want the motorola adapter between your router and your cable modem...

1. Connect from the LAN port of the motorola adapter to the LAN port of the router. Then make sure to disable the router's DHCP.

This will essentially convert your router to just a switch. You might also want to put the router's ip address in the same subnet as the motorola adapter.

If (I am not sure of this so check your user's guide) your motorola's ip address is 192.168.15.1 then you would want to set the router's ip address as 192.168.15.250 or some number outside the range of ip addresses that the motorola adapter can give. It's ok so long as its 192.168.15.xxx. Now you should be able to access both the router and the phone adapter using their ip addresses.

get back to us with the results.
