I have the same router hardware you've mentioned. Although I can't claim this is necessarily the best way to set it up, here's what I'm doing:

cable_modem-->linksys-->dlink

Linksys:
- NAT firewall on
- DHCP limiting to one address (not really using it as a router)
- disabled remote update and admin
- phone connected here

D-Link:
- MAC address filter on
- static DHCP defined
- WEP enabled
- wireless enabled
- desktop PC plugged in here

I would reccomend like this:

DSL Modem-->RT31P2-->Dlink

But different Config, just use the Dlink as a access point. The RT31P2 device has a built in 3 port 10/100 switch. I cant find if the 624 is a hub or a switch, but the RT31P2 does do QOS for the Voip, so I would think you can get better QOS to your non wireless devices, by plugging them into the RT31P2 rather then the 624.

On a second note, I have had two dlink routers in the past and returned both for poor quality, the RT31P2 isnt exactly a cisco 2600, but so far so good for me *knocks on wood*

This reply isn't meant to rebut zachlee's config, since again, I have no idea which will give you better quality or performance. The main reason I connect to the D-Link (both wired and wireless) instead of connecting the wired to the Linksys and use the D-Link as an access point (wireless) is to consolidate my IP addresses.

With everything connected to the D-Link, I can keep all my local IP address mappings on one router. And using static DHCP to assign IP addresses to known MAC addresses in my household, it's all there on one web page.

With the split that zachlee recommends, the D-Link will have wireless connections and the Linsys will have wired connections. And unless you take the time to configure static IP addresses on both boxes, you'll have dynamic IP's of 192.168.0.xxx from the D-Link and 192.168.15.xxx from the Linksys.

I am not too familiar with setting up the ip's and all that fun stuff. I will try to do it both ways (if I can!!!) and post back what I found!

Thanks again for the input and any other input you may have!

Nix, I posted a detailed method on how to set up two routers in another thread: http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic1827.html

My configuration is: cable modem->Linksys RT31P2 -> Netgear Wireless

In theory this configuration should give you the best voice quality of service, however I have not done any formal testing to prove his. I can say however that with 3 computers simultaneousy hitting the internet (gaming) and speaking on the phone at the same time, I have not noticed any voice degradation.

OK thanks for the replys!! I set up like this

cable modem --> linksys --> dlink

I have my desktop plugged into the linksys, linksys takes care of dhcp. the dlink has dhcp = off, web on, mac address filter on and it all worked perfectly.

The only thing I don't see anywhere is how EXACTLY to set the QOS settings in the linksys....any suggestions would be great!

Thanks again to all of you!
