i got my linksys rt31p2 and i want to use my freebsd as my router like i've always done so..

i'm using these two sites for reference:

http://pete.kruckenberg.com/blog/archives/2005/01/setting_up_vona.php

http://openthought.org/blosxom.cgi/2005/01/04

i connected to 192.168.15.1 with a straight ethernet cable from my switch to ethernet port 1 of the linksys, mac cloning was already off, i set the local server ip as 192.168.0.11, everything is showing correctly, i was getting stack overflows but not anymore.

if i put the cable into the "internet" port, it wont respond via ping or anything else. currently i'm not getting a dialtone either.

my assumption is i need a crossover cable from my switch to the "internet" port? is this correct? i already asked my uncle to bring one, he'll be over in an hour. i'd appreciate if anyone knows what i'm doing wrong to help me out here, i'm very anxious.

also:

Firmware Version: 1.25.00, Nov 16 2004
Current Time: Not Available
Status

Login Type: DHCP
Internet IP Address: 0.0.0.0
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 0.0.0.0
DNS 1: 0.0.0.0 -dont worry about this i changed it from my private one.
DNS 2: 0.0.0.0
DNS 3: 0.0.0.0
MTU: 1500

could this have anything to do with it ? i made it obtain, i dont know why this router needs 2 ips.. but as of now.

IP Address: 192.168.0.11
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
DHCP Server: Enabled

that's the set up.

thanks

i specified the address:

Firmware Version: 1.25.00, Nov 16 2004
Current Time: Not Available
Status

Login Type: Static IP
Internet IP Address: 192.168.0.10
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

DNS 1: 0.0.0.0
DNS 2: 0.0.0.0
DNS 3: 0.0.0.0
MTU: 1500

and now when i go to places like voice, it gives me a stack overflow.. although in the voice info it shows this:

Have you tried just putting the RT31P2 in front of your FreeBSD to see what happens? You won't get into the RT31P2 via the internet port unless you enable remote management on the device first.

I think you should see if it works by itself before injecting the FreeBSD PC into the mix.

actually i just put the straight cable from my LAN to the WAN of the RT31P2 and i saw the lights going crazy, i guess it downloaded the firmware patch and now it works..

also i installed a dhcp server on my router so i see the lease pick up:

lease 192.168.0.110 {
starts 4 2005/02/24 01:19:47;
ends 0 2005/03/06 01:19:47;
binding state active;
next binding state free;
hardware ethernet macaddy;
uid "\001\000\023\020\022\337\340";
client-hostname "macaddy";
}

but i am incapable of pinging it or connecting to it through the web. is going from switch port to wan of the router fine with straight through? or is it better with the crossover? i've yet to find anyone who's used a crossover but i'm hoping i can get into the routers administration page somehow.. also 192.168.15.1 wont respond, it was after a fresh reset, maybe the new firmware resets the local ip address?

Jeev, its not difficult. Remember, the RT31P2 is a router itself. Its internal firewall will block you from pinging its WAN port. Just plug a PC into one of the RT31P2's LAN ports and surf to 192.168.15.1 to get the admin page.

I also expect you'll be running the 1.27.01 firmware on it now since it did the download.

One more thing....why don't you just use the RT31P2 as your router instead of cluging up something like FreeBSD on a PC? The RT31P2 is a router after all.

i will eventually figure out why i cannot connect to the router, but i dont want to use this "router" as a router because it isn't a true router. why would i be dumb enough to use a piece of **** little box when i can use such a customizeable router like freebsd? how does it "clug" up whatever that means? this linksys is trash.

Uh, yeah. OK. I'll leave it to your greatly elevated intellect to figure out why you can't make a little piece of sh** work behind the great and powerful FreeBSD.

Whatever. Rolling Eyes

that has nothing to do with it, you think a stupid little box is more reliable and featurable than a freebsd router? go learn somthing.

Allow me:

kludge

In information technology, a kludge (pronounced KLOOdzh) is an awkward or clumsy (but at least temporarily effective) solution to a programming or hardware design or implementation problem.

Why yes, I think we have an accurate description of your situation!

Cool

It is just odd that you have the knowledge to set up a Freebsd box, but can't figure out to just plug your computer directly into the cheapo Linksys to configure it...

Strange...

Are you running ipfilter or ipfw? If so, you will need to actuall open the SIP ports along with the upper range (specified in the piece of **** instructions with the piece of **** box)

You also need to make sure your natd translates the sip packets correctly.

If you want assitance with this, let me know. I've used netbsd as my gateway with Vonage without any issues.

I should also add that your FreeBSD box isn't a true router either Wink
