PostPosted: Mon Feb 21, 2005 4:41 am    Post subject: RT31P2 configuration and comments Reply with quote Back to top

I'm wondering what the options are for configuring the RT31P2. I believe Linksys suggests putting it next to the modem (and before any router). Can it be put after a router? Also, can the DHCP server on the RT31P2 be turned off?

Also, I've read about quite a few problmes ith the PAP2--seems like the RT31P2 is a bit better and when I called Vonage yesterday they said that that is what they are shipping to new customers. Is there any concensus on the RT31P2's? So far I've only used the Motorola TA and I'm also interested in hearing if anyone has any comparison between that and the Linksys products.

Thanks.

Yes to both questions in your first paragraph, and if I were putting it behind another router, I'd rather have the Motorola.

Call me confused but. Sometimes I don't get why you want to connect two routers together when you have no need to. If ya have issues later over this and that you may want to change that scenerio.

Well, for my purposes, I need two because my current router (SMC barricade) is wireless and also has a built in print server. I signed up for Vonage online, so I got the router from Vonage that didn't have those features. Also, it took me forever to get my ports, etc., configured on my SMC for online applications I use.

Also, when I move in a few months, I am going to have my cable modem in one room with one computer, and network cable running to one other room out one jack. From that jack, I'd like to be able to route 2 other computers into a network.

I would agree. The rise of combination boxes often makes it necessary to have more than one box on your network that can be routers. In my case, it seems that Vonage only offers a router based box. (Even the Motorola box is a router and they aren't even using Motorola anymore--I don't know why.) Meanwhile, I have a wireless router that has more features. I could turn off the router on the wireless and just use it as an access point, but it has more features and I'm told is more robust than the Linksys router/TA. I understand why some people like the all-in-one approach, but I feel that so far if you choose an all-in-one you aren't getting the best of any of them--you are comprimising all over the place.

I also use an SMC Barricade, and it includes my ADSL modem, so I can't really strip it out of the loop...

I have got it working with the RT31P2, initially by disabling the SMC's firewall, but got it working through the firewall by reading a little further and forwarding the UDP ports 5060-5061 and 10000-20000 to the router. (It's under NAT - Virtual Server on the SMC).

Note: I was a little surprised that putting the RT31P2's IP address as the DMZ didn't work...?

PostPosted: Sat Mar 19, 2005 8:47 am    Post subject: Set-Up Help Reply with quote Back to top

This posting is from a newbie so please give me some slack, OK??? I’m overseas and have just hooked my house to ADSL service (not cable but via ISDN lines). The ISP provided a D-Link ADSL modem, model DSL-360T. Before I traveled back here from the States, I was provided the Linksys RT31P2-VD router from Vonage after I signed up for their service.

The direct modem-to-laptop connection works fine Very Happy However, the problems start when I add the router between the modem and the computer. Sad The best I can do is to get both the modem and router to successfully “ping”. No matter what I do, I cannot get on the internet. Obviously, the phone hook-up is irrelevant at this point.

I’ve tried the Linksys router’s CDROM and manual set-ups to no avail. I even had the ISP techie out to the house for several frustrating hours. He ultimately gave up on me!

The problem appears to be that both the router and modem want to be the DHCP server.

Anybody have a simple walk-through that might straighten this all out?

have you set the router up for PPPoE with your username and pass at http://192.168.15.1 ?

This is fairly straightforward - you need to turn off DHCP on the modem. All you need to be able to do that is the IP address of the modem page, which your ISP can tell you.

Yes. I have but I continue to get the message to the effect "Router is not connected to the internet. Please try turning the modem off and then back on" when I am configuring the router through the CDROM set-up. Should I do as suggested by Michael545 and specify the IP on the modem (turn off the DHCP)? If so, does that mean the router stays on DHCP?

Thanks!
