That's an elegant solution for the given parameters; probably the same thing I'd have done.

However, it doesn't seem necessary to forward ports 0..65535 on the RT31P2. Shouldn't enabling the DMZ take care of that automatically?

Only reason I wouldn't recommend putting the Vonage device as the DMZ is because then you can't use it as a switch for further expansion of your network. I refuse to use it as a router/firewall, but I do plan on using it as a 10/100 switch in the future instead of buying another switch.

Of course, a switch doesn't perform any routing; it's just a hub with separate data paths. $30?

But as I said, I have my own parameters. I have a full network behind my real firewall with 16 and 8 port 1000BT switches.

Paul,

Putting the rest of the network on the DMZ means that there is no firewall protection, but NAT is still in place. Or put another way, you and I know that there is only one device (the second firewall) hooked to the built in hub, but the RT31P2 doesn't. So without port forwarding, when someone from the outside wants to access a Web server on port 80, the RT31P2 has no idea where to direct that request if port forwarding is not enabled.

In re-reading your post, you say "putting the RT31P2 in the DMZ". I'm not sure if that is mis-typed, but actually, you are putting the rest of your network in the RT31P2's DMZ. Any other devices connected to the ethernet ports on the RT31P2 are still NAT routed and firewalled via the RT31P2. You would in effect have 2 internal subnets:

[Cable/DSL modem]
|
[RT31P2]
^
| DMZ | Other ethernet ports
192.168.1.2 192.168.1.*
[Router]
|
192.168.0.*

Just an FYI for people with a setup similar to this, but with a different model of Netgear Wireless Router.

I use a Netgear MR814v1 Wireless router. Unfortunately, it will not operate as an Access Point. Therefore you cannot turn off DHCP on the Netgear unless you want to statically assign IPs onto your wireless devices.

In other words, a wireless router such as mine will not receive the wireless signal from the wireless device and forward it on to the Linksys to obtain an IP address via DHCP. It will ONLY allow you to grab an IP via DHCP from itself.

Nethog, thank you so much for providing this solution. It worked perfectly for my setup (using Netgear's FWG114P router). Prior to that, I was struggling to get it set up (and I'm pretty good with networks).

I took the route where I still will have both my PC's running through the Netgear router. I still have not tested the Wireless connection yet, but I imagine it should work fine. The desktop connection works as it used to for sure. And I will be setting up my new printer on the print server as well this weekend.

My only question is that I would really like to assign static LAN IP addresses to my two computers on my network (1 desktop, 1 laptop), rather than have the local DHCP hand them out first come, first serve. I have some services (like VNC) that need to be forwarded to the desktop only. Can the Linksys router handle it, like the Netgear can?

Again, thank you a bunch for this. So far it works perfect.

Hello everyone,

I've use therickster's way of setting up my network, but am unable to assign static IP's on my 192.168.0.* subnet. I'm allowing for 10 DHCP addresses, so I should be able to assign 192.168.0.111, but it when I do, I'm not able to get outside my LAN, even though I set my gateway. DHCP works fine.

I've got:

Cable modem ----> RT31P2 ---> Linksys Wireless w/ 4 Port Switch BEFW11S4 V.2 ---> PC's

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Kevin

When you say you can't get beyond your LAN....are you trying by IP or name? If you are setting the IP addresses statically for that subnet, then you will also have to set the DNS servers statically.

Hi Nick,

Yes, I've done all of that too. Set all 3 DNS servers in resolv.conf and set the gateway to 192.168.1.1 in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0.

I haven't tried setting the gateway to 192.168.1.2, but am not sure if that will work.

I can learn to live with the DHCP setup as I really only need to have one server have a "static" IP address. I can just make sure it's the first to boot up on the LAN so it get's 192.168.0.100 and I can just forward all traffic in my LAN Router on the various ports to it.

Thanks for your help!

Kevin
