PostPosted: Tue Jul 22, 2008 7:53 pm    Post subject: VTech ip8100, WHR-HP-G54, dd-wrt, and no phone service! Reply with quote Back to top

I am trying to setup my buffalo whr-hp-54g/dd-wrt with my ip8100, and I am unable to get it to work.

I want to set it up like option 1 here http://vonage.nmhoy.net/tworouters.html

but I can't figure out how to get it to work...

From the primary router connection to the ip8100, do I use the blue (crossover?) cable to hook to the WAN port?

Also, can I change the ip addy on the ip8100 to be on the same subnet as my primary router (192.168.1.1 is the router, can I set the ip addy for the router as 192.168.1.2)

I have dd-wrt on my buffalo WHR-HP-G54, are there any specific settings that I need to configure? (should it dole out dhcp addresses, do I need to enable dmz and point it at the ip8100 etc)

Regarding the ip8100, what needs to be set?

Lastly, the only way I can connect to both devices from the wireless is to hook up both cables to the primary router...I have tried getting it working with just the WAN hooked up, but I have been unsuccessful...

FYI, I have tried a bunch of various settings, all to no avail, and am getting really frustated with this Smile

primary router
firewall off/on
dhcp server on, 1 address doled out
dncp forwarder enabled, using the modems public ip addy
dmz enabled, pointed at 192.168.1.2 (ip 8100's addy)

ip8100
I have tried running the wizard (setting for dhcp), and it does not work.
I have also tried assigning the basic setup as dhcp, as well as assigning an internal ip addy (192.168.1.3), as well as my public ip addy

lastly, I have a cable modem, and if I hook up the 8100 directly to the cable modem it works, but I would prefer to have my "real" router as the outward facing device...

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

flapper,

I share your frustrations in trying to arrange everything in your new network. Here is what I did with my dd-wrt setup on my wrt54g.

Main router: Enable DHCP, Enable QoS give highest priority to the MAC address of your Vonage device (in this case IP8100). Also make sure to give the lowest priority to all the other ports though.

From port 1 of your main router connect to the WAN port of your IP8100.

From ports 2-4 (or however many you have) of your main router connect to other devices.

In order for the other devices to work however, you need to decide how you want it configured.

I personally decided to give my Vonage device a static ip outside the range given out by the main router. I kept my computers on obtain ip automatically.

For example, most routers will start with 192.168.1.100 and go up to 192.168.1.150 or something like that.

Of course, in order to access the IP8100 web configuration page at this stage, you will need to connect a computer directly to its PC port.

I chose 192.168.1.175 for my Vonage device as a static ip.

You also need to enable remote access in your Vonage device so that you will type in:

192.168.1.175:8080 to access the web interface for it from any computer in your network.

Now once everything has been configured, you need to power down everything and then turn them on one at a time.

Modem first (wait until all lights are solid)
Main router next (wait until all light are solid)
Turn on IP8100 and wait until all the lights are on including phone line 1.
Turn on the computers and see if they can surf the web.

Hi Mundy5, thanks for your suggestions, however I am still having problems with my setup, and I figure I am missing something...

I have enabled QOS and made my IP8100's mac addy "exempt" (this was the top setting in the pull down menu. I have static ip addresses on my local network, and have assigned an address to the 8100 for administering it.

On the 8100, in the basic tab, I have assigned a local IP address to the 8100, (different from the administration address) and given it the dns info and gateway address that I assigned to the main router. The yellow light on the router starts to blink, but after about 5 minutes it fails and turns red. I have tried to reboot the 3 devices as you suggested, but the light is just steady red when everything comes back up.

I have also tried running the wizard, but that doesn't work either.

So, if you or anyone else can think of what else needs to be set on either the 8100 or buffalo, I would love to hear it

I guess I could put the Vonage adapter first, as it does work this way, but I really would prefer not to.

Thanks again...

Flapper,

I am a bit confused on a couple of items.

#1: What is "exempt?"

#2: Why do you have different ip addresses for your ip8100?

#3: What are the dns and gateway addresses you are entering in?

The third question is an indication of confusion on my part.

For my setup, I did not enter in any dns or gateway information on my router.

For my Vonage device, I entered the ip address of my wrt54g as my gateway but left the dns section blank.

So for example, my wrt54g has an ip address of: 192.168.1.1

so I entered in for my rt31p2 the following:

ipadress: static at 192.168.1.175
gateway: 192.168.1.1
subnet: 255.255.255.0

That's all I did.

can you double check all the data you are entering into your buffalo router and your ip8100.

I have a feeling you have over configured it or incorrectly configured them.

Hi mundy5, thanks for getting back to me so quickly...

(this is on the buffalo)
regarding the setting "exempt", when you configure the QOS mac Priority, there is a pop up menu with the following choices:

exempt
premium
express
standard
bulk

previously you had said to configure the QOS priority at the highest setting, and exempt looks to be the hightest

(this is on the ip8100)
as far as the different addresses go, one address is the management interface address, which I set to a local ip addy (192.168.1.2). If you log into the ip8100, and click basic > ispconfiguration, there is a space to enter the ipaddress, gateway, and dns servers. I entered these manually because when I tried to configure the ip8100 as a dhcp client it would always fail. I thought that if I gave the 8100 a local ip address that was different from the management address, and assigned the correct values (that are set on the primary router), that it might work. I manually set these because when I ran the wizard and set it the 8100 to receive an ip address, it would fail.

If there's anything else you can think of, I would like to hear about it, as I am stumped!

Thanks again...
