this is how i have mine setup.
cable modem--->internet port on ATA
ATA internal static of 192.168.15.1
ATA just cause im lazy gives DHCP to my WIFI Router
port 1 on ATA to internet port on WIFI router.
WiFI router does DHCP to my two wifi computers.

Because i only have 2 computers that are always on i just left DHCP on, they automaticly renew their lease and it has not been an issue. for portforwading. my ATA forwards the port i.e 3389 for remote desktop to my wifi router, the wifi router then forwards to my pc.

its a bit of "tag" but so far i have not had any phone issues i made it my "primary" device, i am also not running any streaming heavy bandwith programs.

I hope this helps.

Well my router showed up today and after some theatrics with the home wiring everything is now set up.

My observations are as follows;

Call quality is not as good as I get from my local CLEC, on one call I got some static for a while, which cleared up. I notice a bit of delay/echo on calls at times and my mom (in VT, 2000 miles away) commented that it sounded a bit like I was on a Walkie-Talkie.

Overall I would say the sound quality is accepteable. I primarily use the phone for business and would not think it would bother too many customers of mine unless the noise problems become chronic. I've been on the phone today probably for 3 hrs since installing and only had problems for about one minute. The FW version on the router seems to have upgraded itself from 1.26 to 1.27.01.

As far as networking goes, there are a few things I still can't get working the way I have them configured. I have the RT31P2 hooked up behind my Comcast cable modem and then have one of the switch ports from that connected to the WAN port on my Netgear wifi access point which is getting a DHCP addy from the RT31. All of the client machines are connected to the Netgear box (for a variety of reasons).

Some of the services I use that require port forwarding do not seem to work now. I tried putting the IP address of the netgear in for forwarding ports but it doesn't seem to work correctly (at least not all the time). I also tried putting the IP address of the Netgear into the RT31 as the DMZ address and some services still don't work. I figure that I will probably be forced to move one or two client machines to sit directly behind the Linksys box unless I can come up with another solution for getting a few of these port forwarded services to work.

All in all I would say that this has worked out about as well as I would have expected. I'm sure I will appreciate the extra $25 a month I am saving on my phone bill. I haven't tried faxing yet, hopefully that still works.

I was having simmaler problems, for the ports you need to forward them twice. I.E On the linksys port 80--->to IP of netgear and then on the netgear 80---> to your client computer. For the walkie talkie sounds move the linksys power cord and the phone power cord away from eveything else, I was having problems until I moved everything off of the crowded power strip i was using.

I have the ports forwarded on both routers and it still doesn't work, I'm not sure if there is a solution to this, I think it might have something to do with this being a double NATd connection.

As far as the walkie talkie sound I think my mom was referring more to the audio delay in the conversation, much more noticeable than on a regular land line connection.

Get one of the 5.8Ghz phone systems and plug the base station into the Vonage adapter (whether it is the router or PAP2). Unless your house is huge or damped (like made of stone), the 5.8Ghz system should cover your whole house.

I like the PAP2 because it maintains router independence from Vonage. The WRT54G routers are very good devices for this situation as they have QOS and work with the PAP2 out of the box. The WRT54G also can be enhanced with the sveasoft or hyperWRT firmware. The sveasoft firware is very good at QOS, among other things.


Ya, I have a 5.8ghz Uniden phone system that is very nice, but I need the base station in my home office (use the speakerphone on the base a lot) and don't want to shell out another $50 for an extra handset. I also just bought a really nice new Netgear Soho router with 802.11g turbo support and don't want to replace that either.


I have a Uniden 8560-2 or something like that. Base station, 2 handsets, 5.8Ghz, excellent audio quality, and the handset have their own speakerphone function (which works better than the base station speakerphone). Was $168 when I bought it, but I understand prices have come down since then.
