PostPosted: Tue Feb 01, 2005 3:34 pm    Post subject: Linksys RT31P2, is this a router too? Reply with quote Back to top

I just signed up with Vonage and the order says I am getting a Linksys RT31P2. Well upon looking at it online it looks like this is actually a router as well as a Voip hardware device..

1.) I have cable internet and my cable modem is hooked up to a D-Link wireless G router. Do I hook the RT31P2 from Vonage up to a port on the D-Link router or do I hook it up directly to the output of the cable modem?

2.) I also have a security system installed in my house and the panel that the phone jack connects to is located downstairs away from my cable modem and where the Linksys RT31P2 will be connected. So how do I have my security system use my Vonage phone line?

Thanks

here are articles from vonage.com (the place you ordered from) about your situation.
http://www.vonage.com/help_knowledgeBase_article.php?category=45&article=61
http://www.vonage.com/help_knowledgeBase_article.php?article=88
the first method is recommended because the linksys has QoS (quality of service) which in a nutshell is supposed to give you better quality phone calls (while you're using the internet) by giving the phone call priority over the web pages you're browsing.
as far as the alarm goes, there are a ton of threads on here about that. search for them. here's a link from Vonage that talks about it a little bit.

There! That should do it for you.

OOPS! Reebok beat me to it, and always one better! The linksys link might give you a bit of info too.

okay only thing about connecting the linksys phone adapter BEFORE my router is that I use Static IP addresses on all my computers, and one of my computers has a program that retrieves the WAN ip address to update a dyanmic dns service I use. If I have the phone adapter infront of my router, will my computer still be able to detect the WAN ip address?

also, will my internet speed while NOT using the phone be slower by having this QoS infront of my router, thus infront of my computers?

ah, I don't think this is going to work for me with my alarm system, because it appears that I would have to connect my Vonage adapter to my phone line BEFORE the alarm, which I believe is downstairs AWAY from my cable modem and I cannot run wiring through my house..

I guess it's back to the tradition landline.. the only reason I need a phone line is for the alarm system anyhow, everything else I use my cell phone for..

it won't affect it while not on the phone.
I suppose it depends on the program, I'm not familiar with it. but it's a normal 4 port router besides the qos and phone ports. check out mike's link to the product.

Actually, the RT31P2 is a 3-port router if that makes any difference.
Very Happy

yup just cancelled my Vonage account as I won't be able to use it with the alarm system...

my alarm panel is downstairs and my cable modem is upstairs, and I cannot run wires downstairs to connected the Vonage phone adapter to the phone line BEFORE it hits my alarm system..

plus, I didn't realize that if I lose power in my house my alarm system won't be able to dial out, at least with a landline phone, I can still have my alarm system dial out because it's using a regular phone line and the alarm panel has a battery back up in it.

squale: Which security provider do you use? (kinda pointless now that you have cancelled Vonage but...)

I have Brinks and the "3000" model security panel. The panel is located in a hall closet with the phone line running to the storage room on my deck; the location of the telco interface. The Brinks connect is immediately before any other "splices" or what-have-you for the phone extensions.

My Vonage adapter (the RT31P2 - I also have a PAP2--3 lines) is plugged into the phone wall-jack in a bedroom which then energizes the entire house with "Line 1" of said adapter. I know my security panel is before all the others, however, it still dials out perfectly for test signals and updates (I see the 800 number on my call detail) and seizes the line, too. And, it works like a champ when the alarm sounds (yes, we all set it off every now and then!).

The security system (3000 model per the Brinks rep) worked with absolutely no re-configuration. Of course, this is just my set-up: yours may be a bit different (service provider, cat5 instead of older 4 wire, star configuration from the NID, etc.)

Too, to ensure the security system can dial-out in the event of a power failure I purchased an inexpensive $40 UPS just for my cable modem and RT31P2 (the panel has its own battery back-up). The cable internet spans have their own backup so normally even when the power is down I still have internet (and Vonage!) access. Also, I keep a basic, generic wired phone ($5 from D*llar G*neral) in the storage room for use during a power failure.

Anyhow, just to let you know there are systems that do work with Vonage (the Brinks rep told me they have "a very high success rate" with their systems & Vonage along with the obligatory "internet" warnings)

Good luck to you.
Smile
