I installed the linksys after my Netgear router but just before one of my computers for convenience reasons. Ie not all my computers are behind Linksys.
Now I have a problem because I can't see all my computers on the network. The one behind linksys has a different IP adress than the ones behind the Netgear. It is as if they were in 2 different network.

I use to transfert files from computers to computers, now I can't.
How can I do without modifiying the position of the 2 routers?

Many thanks

I sucessfully set up 2 routers that work perfectly together - a Netgear wireless WGR614 and the Linksys RT31P2 with the Voip capabilities. My setup is as follows:

Cable Modem
|
Linksys
IP address: 192.168.15.1 DHCP range: 192.168.15.{100-150}
| |
| PCs
| IP address assigned: 192.168.15.{100-150}
|
|
Netgear (wireless)
IP address: 192.168.15.200
|
PCs
IP address assigned: 192.168.15.{100-150}

Important things to know:
(1) I used a standard cable (i.e. NOT crossover) to connect the two
routers one of the standard ports on each router (i.e. do NOT use the WAN or Internet port on the Netgear)
(2) disable DHCP on the Netgear router
(3) assign the netgear router a new fixed IP address OUTSIDE THE DHCP RANGE of the linksys
(4) Do (2) and (3) above at the same time - if you just did 2 and then applied the changes you will be unable to connect to the router to set the IP.
(5) make sure that the first 3 portions of the IP address are the same for both routers, i.e. 192.168.15 in my case

In my setup any machines connecting through the netgear either through a wired port or wireless get assigned DHCP addresses in the range specifed in the linksys DHCP setup (i.e. 192.168.15.{100-150})

Since you have the Linksys behind the Netgear you should replace the word "Linksys" with "Netgear" and vice versa in the notes above. I wanted to keep the linksys product in front of the netgear to take advanage of the RT31P2's "QOS" (Quality of Service) capabilities for voice when there is other network traffic occuring.

Hope this helps!

Just a quick thanks to Nethog. Your solution saved me a lot of trouble. Although I am using the same setup as Nethog, I think this method will work for any router / router combination.

Is it easy to assign the ip's as you stated? I have never done any of this before! Thanks for taking the time to detail your method!

The Nethog solution works! I spent days trying to get my new Netgear Digital Music player to recognize the server which was behind the Vonage supplied 3 port router with phone ports and a Linksys 4 port router. (all wired)

I had to put the Phone port router first or else the phone lights on the router did not light up and phone service was intermitant.

Sure, this turns my 4 port router into a 3 port router but I'm happy!

Thank you!! This was days of frustration solved.

I have mine setup as:

cable modem
linksys wrt54g
then
Vonage linksys device and other computers.

I refuse to let the Vonage device be my firewall, so I'm treating it as just another PC in my network. Turn off everything on the Vonage device having to do with dhcp and firewalls to turn it into basically a switch. Run the ethernet cable out of a free port on the main firewall into the WAN of the Vonage device. That will give it an IP address. You can now make calls going out, but won't get anything coming in. You must port forwareto the device all the valid ports (i'll have to look them up). After doing that everything works just fine.

If your firewall supports static DHCP addresses use the MAC address of the Vonage device to assign a static address through dhcp to it.

The wrt linksys firewall has QOS built into it so you get to take advantage of that also.

I've tried your method Nethog. However, am still not able to get a dial tone thru Vonage. They are sending a new phone adaptor, but I don't know if that is going to fix the problem. Ambit 60678eu cable mobem, connected to linksys rt31p2 phone adapter, connected to Netgear wgr614v5 wireless router. Still connecting to internet, no dial tone. No phone lights. no dhcp server on netgear, ip range 192.168.15.200 - 250.

PostPosted: Mon Jan 03, 2005 9:15 pm    Post subject: Using RT31P2 with another router Reply with quote Back to top

There are lots of ways to skin this cat, depending on exactly what
your parameters are. Here are my parameters and how I solved the
issue.

1) Take advantage of RT31P2 QoS. This implies that the RT31 has to
be "inline" the WAN connection (either in front of or behind another
router).
2) NOT use RT31P2 as a firewall. I have a much better firewall/VPN.
3) Not disrupt the port forwarding, DMZ, etc. (or any other configurations)already working on my existing firewall - the only allowable change is to
change the WAN IP settings to connect to the RT31P2.

My solution follows. Note that I am not trying to use the RT31P2 as
a switch - it must route to take advantage of QoS.

I am using 192.168.0.* as my internal subnet.

[Cable/DSL modem (WAN)]
|
[RT31P2]
(WAN address configured to Cable/DSL modem specs)
(LAN address is 192.168.1.1)
|
[Existing firewall]
(WAN address set to 192.168.1.2. gateway set to 192.168.1.1)
(LAN address set to 192.168.0.1)
|
[Servers, PCs, other devices (DHCP in the 192.168.0.* subnet)]

Now here's the trick. On the RT31P2:
1) Turn off the DHCP server
2) Go to "Applications and Gaming" and select "DMZ". Change to "ENABLE"
and enter the address 192.168.1.2. You'll notice that this is the WAN address of the other router. This bypasses all the firewall features of the
RT31P2.
3) Go into the "Port Range Forwarding" page. On the first line, under
"Application", enter "All" (simply to be descriptive). "Start" should be "0",
"End" should be 65535, "Protocol" should be "BOTH", IP address should
be 192.168.1.2. Click "Enable".
4) Save settings.

The two routers are now daisy chained and you are getting QoS, but since
the second router is in the RT31P2's DMZ, and all packets are forwarded
to it, the RT31P2 is effectively invisible. About the only thing that won't
work this way is if the second router is a hardware VPN router attempting
to establish an automatic IPSec key exchange with a matching router
(if you don't know what I am talking about, then you are not attempting
this). However, even that can be worked around if you have the routers
establish IPSec sessions using manual keys.
