PostPosted: Fri Mar 21, 2008 7:23 pm    Post subject: How to network my VT2442 with my existing router Reply with quote Back to top

Hi all,

I'm trying to network my VT2442 with my existing router but I don't know where to start.

I already have an existing WIRED router that has 4 Ethernet ports. ALL of which are used by 4 computers in our house. Now the Vonage VT2442 came in, so I have to use 1 port to connect my Vonage and then connect my computer to the Vonage ethernet ports.

This works well. I can use my phone line and have internet access on my computer.

The problem is my computers are all connected to a network before. My brothers and I play LAN games all the time (sometimes, battle.net). We also do some file sharing and stuff. In summary, all of the computers SHOULD be networked through LAN.

Of course, the VT2442 will give an auto DHCP IP to the computer connected to its ethernet port. Which is 192.168.15.x. The other 3 computers have 192.168.1.x .. With these different auto DHCP ips .. I cant connect to other computers through LAN.

I went to the VT2442 router modem settings and I dont know what to do there. Under SETUP > LAN Configuration > Subnet IP Address: is set to 192.168.15.1 .. should I change it to 192.168.1.1 (def gateway of my existing router)?? and give a different "Start IP" and "End IP" that would not conflict to my existing router.

Should I set my existing router to give static ip instead of auto dhcp and do that with my Vonage router as well?

Please help.. I just need all my computer to be connected to one default gateway to do some LAN games and printer/file sharing stuff.

Thank you very much!

EDIT: BTW, I can't make my Vonage router as the MAIN router then use my existing router as the Extension. I called my ISP and I they said that they made some special firmware modification to my router and it should always be the MAIN one.

Thanks for the link Very Happy

However, it doesn't give any specific instructions on how to setup Shared LAN .. he just says that its not his first choice Sad

Or maybe I just don't get it?

Thank you.

Turn DHCP in the VT2442 off. Make sure that the connection from your primary router to the VT2442 is to a LAN port on the VT2442. Then run a second ethernet cable from another LAN port on the VT2442 to its WAN port. (That's needed to make your phone work.) Plug your computer into a third LAN port on the VT2442. Now your primary router will provide the IP to the computer plugged into the VT2442, and all should be well.

Steve's got it. The issue with trying to do the instructions in any level of exacting detail is the sheer number of router models out there, so I stuck with simple diagrams and bullets.

However, the basics are to turn the DHCP server *OFF* on the router that is to be the "shared LAN" unit. Basically, you want to use the switch on the router as a switch, but not as an actual router. If your MAIN router provides the IP addresses, then it will also serve as the gateway to the Internet for all of the clients on that switch.

This also includes the WAN port of the router itself, which is why you want the cable running from one of the LAN ports on the Vonage router to the WAN port on the Vonage router - that's what allows the Vonage router to be a client of your MAIN router.

So:

1. Log into the Vonage router and pretty much turn off anything. Leave the DHCP *client* on, but don't allow it to be a DHCP *server*. QoS and other features are superfluous, turn them off. Turn remote configuration on (if you ever want to administer the Vonage router) only because you will not be able to administer the Vonage router from any of the LAN ports - the Vonage LAN ports will be part of the MAIN network now.

2. Run a cable from a LAN port on MAIN router to a LAN port on the Vonage router. Run another cable from a LAN port on the Vonage router (or, if you prefer, a LAN port on the MAIN router, doesn't matter) to the WAN port of the Vonage router.

3. Bask in the glory of the goodness that is saving a few bucks on a cheap switch. (grin)

Or, just go out and buy a cheap switch. Like I never did - I ran the "Shared LAN" configuration for quite some time - over a year, and other than spotty access to the Vonage administration screen, it worked fantastically well.

Hi NateHoy,

It was my fault .. I didn't understand the diagram .. but now, when I had a 2nd look .. I got it. I was just looking at the words, waiting for instructions .. Sorry about that. Next time I'll look closer .. lol

By the way, Great guide!

Thank you!

Hi,

It actually worked! Now I have my Vonage router working and I can play LAN games and stuff.

The only thing is I can't access the Vonage router configuration settings anymore (as said by NateHoy) .. I forgot to turn on "remote configuration on" ...

Now I try to redo everything again. I removed every Ethernet cable connected at the back of my Vonage router > grabbed 1 ethernet cable and directly connected it to the back of my pc. 192.168.1.1 doesnt work , 192.168.15.1 doesnt work as well.

How can I access the Vonage router again? Should I reset it (press with a pin, that small hole at the back of the router?)

Chances are you'll never have to administer your Vonage router. Vonage takes care of the firmware, etc.

If you do really want the ability to administer it (which will be intermittent anyway), the best way is to disconnect the Vonage router from the network, hook a single computer up to it, and either configure that computer to access the IP address assigned to the LAN side of the Vonage router, or just do the factory reset so you can log in, turn on remote admin, and redo it.

But I'd say wait until you have some need to do the administration. If it ain't broke... Smile
