PostPosted: Thu Dec 31, 2009 10:50 am    Post subject: Router with 3 phone lines, fax line plus 2 phone lines Reply with quote Back to top

Are there any wireless routers with more than 2 phone jacks?

I would like to add a second line and we already have 1 phone line and 1 fax line plugged into the Linksys router we have.

The ultimate wireless set up for us would be a wireless router with at least 3 phone lines and at least 4 preferably 8 ethernet connections.

Does anybody make something like this? Or is there any way I can get 3 phone lines set up?

Thank you.

No. The devices have only 2 phone lines. (some only have 1) if you want more that 2 phone lines, you need an additional device.

Thanks. Can I just plug another router behind the first one and disable it's wireless function?

Or is it more complicated than that?

Thanks again.

The new Vonage devices are only routers and are not wireless. There is no wireless to disable. You should be able to put one after another, but it would probably be better to get a 4 port router and hook each device to the router.
You will get better QOS (quality of service) on each that way.

Okay, but I'll need to have wireless connectivity.
I am currently a long time Vonage customer, but have never received or used actual Vonage equipment. I have phone and fax but want to add an additional phone line.

I have a Linksys WRTP54G as my primary router, and it has wireless.
I have an older Linksys RT31P2 that is not wireless, but has two phone ports, that I'd like to try to connect to use the additional phone connections.

What I've done so far is set up the WRTP54G to 192......2 and connected the RT31P2 to one of its LAN connections with an address of 192......1 using a standard cable. To my absolute astonishment, everything seems to work with the exception of the phone jacks on the second router, RT31P2. There is a printer connected to the RT31P2 which I can see and access, so it appears to be working as a switch.

Does the second router need to be set up as a router via a WAN connection to enable the phone functionality? Or do I need a conversion cable? Or both? Or can you just tell me what I need to do and I'll shut up?

Please don't misinterpret any of the terminology or techniques stated in my message to in anyway imply that I have any idea of what I'm doing here. It's simply regurgitated from what I've read and heard from people like yourself who know what they are doing and are kind enough to help those of us who don't.

Thanks again for all your help, I feel like I've very close to being able to accomplish what I've set out to do.

Okay, I got it. First off, you need to order the additional line you'd like to connect. As my wife pointed out at lunch, you need something to connect to. The rest wasn't too hard, set the routers to two different addresses, disable DHCP on the second router, then connect one of the ethernet ports to the WAN / internet port of the second router. Works fine. Couldn't get the phone lines to work using the LAN to LAN set up.

Actually had to go back and change the address of the second router to 192.168.2.1 so that it was on a different subnet? and enable DCHP in order to be able to access the internet and have phone access on the second router.

But I frikking got it!!!
