PostPosted: Tue Nov 27, 2007 10:33 pm    Post subject: Best config. with 2 routers +2 isp and load balancing Reply with quote Back to top

Good Day,
Sorry for the long post or if this has already been covered but here it goes:

I have been playing around with my settings for a few days now.

note: Voip was perfect in the original 1 ISP > WRT54G > Vt2142 for 8 months.

Internet works fine but even with the QOS turned on in the LB router, voice calls get dropped and/or quality becomes unbearable (echo,garble,etc) It works fine sometimes though.

Trial 1 Scenario:

CBL modem > Dlink LB604(wan1)-----|
+ -------------> continued below
DSL modem >Dlink LB604(wan2)-----|

<static connections to LAN ports 1-4>

---------> L1(WRT54g w/2 PC's wireless) + L2(PC3) + L3(VT2142, 1 line Voip) + L4(Print Sharing device)

This layout works well for other purposes like gaming, browsing, BT, etc. but the Voip just plain stinks even with QOS turned on and designated to a specific WAN/static address with all ports open.

After much aggravation, I decided to do this instead:

CBL modem > VT2142>Dlink LB604(wan1)-----|
+ -------------> continued below
DSL modem >Dlink LB604(wan2)-----|

---------> L1(WRT54g w/2 PC's wireless) + L2(PC3) + L3(Print Sharing device) +L4 (none)

This works great, except that when making a Voip call, all traffic stops to Wan1 (priority?)

I guess you could say that the problem was solved. I wish to know if someone has a better configuration.

Thanks in advance. Very Happy

Are you saying you have a DSL modem connected to a router that is connected to a cable modem?

Hello Brian,
Yes sir, I have CBL and DSL plugged into the load balance router (2 wan ports)

I live in a rural area so there are times when one or the other ISP service conks out so having two guarantees availability of the internet service.

cheers. Lol

Ahh ok, I was reading your post wrong, I was thinking you had Cable modem to wan port on a router and DSL modem on LAN port of that router. Didn't catch the 2 wan or that it was load balancer.

I would think your first set up would be ideal for all, provided the QoS is set up correctly. Are you sure it is set up correctly?

Brian188,
Yes I followed the install guides specified by Dlink. I did dig up some posts about people using the same router without issues but they did not go into specific detail about their setup so I will have to wait for more comments.

My main concern is that with the existing setup (VT2142 after modem) means that if the particular ISP fails, I will NOT have Vonage service Mad

Yes exactly, and when gaming, P2P etc. most traffic is passing through your Vonage adapter which won't be good for those apps. I would still look to the QoS setting on the Dlink.
