PostPosted: Fri Feb 04, 2005 7:34 pm    Post subject: Putting a phone adapter in front of my VPN/firewall Reply with quote Back to top

So I set up a test phone at my house like this:
Comcast Internet - Toshiba 2600 Cable Modem - Sonicwall Soho2 - Linksys PAP2

It works great but the quality suffers when I am surfing the web. I want to buy one of the adapters that I can put in front of my Sonicwall. I need the Sonicwall because it runs a VPN connection to my office. If I can find a VT1000 (or another alternative), can I put the adapter before my router or will it kill my VPN connection? Will I get a nasty letter from Comcast about using two devices?

Thanks.

you should probably go with the linksys RT31P2 or the WRT54GP2 (wireless) for the QoS, since this is really what you're asking for. even if you put the motorola in front of everything, sure the voice packets hit it first without going through another router, but all of your other web surfing packets are hitting it at the same time. the moto is going to be forwarding the web packets at the same time its decoding the voice packets and you're back to square one. with QoS, your bandwidth will be reserved so that there is enough available for the voice packets at all times. your web browsing will be slower (but may not even be noticeable). at any rate, qos is designed to solve your issue.
as far as vpn, there is a vpn passthrough option on both of those routers I mentioned. I'm not sure about the comcast thing. see this thread for more vpn info:

Vonage supplied me with the Linksys RT31P2 router that has the QOS feature that you desire. The router documentation claims that "...The VPN Passthrough screen allows you to allow VPN tunnels using IPSec, PPPoE, or PPTP protocols to pass through the Router."

So, depending on how your Sonicwall Soho2 creates its VPN connection it may work. You'd almost have to try it and see.

More info here: http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=34&scid=29&prid=652

If you placed your router in front of your SOHO2 then Comcast would only see the one device. No nasty letters.

I bought extra IPs from Comcast. So my setup is a 10mbit switch right after the cable modem, and My Apple Airport and the VT1005 adapter both plugged into the switch. Allows the phone adapter to be right no the internet, and not have to worry about double NAT'ng

The RT31P2 is not the solution. VPNing TO a remote computer is OK, but not FROM a remote computer.

FYI, my RT31P2 does not allow a VPN (PPTP) connection to be established. The "enable VPN Passthrough" option does not work.

I also have a SnapGear IPSec VPN box that will not work behind the RT31P2.

Switching routers fixes everything, so the RT31P2 is definately the problem.
