PostPosted: Tue Mar 01, 2005 8:11 am    Post subject: Help with Netgear RP614 and Linksys RP31P2 Reply with quote Back to top

I have the below setup.

Cable Modem
Netgear RP614 Router
Two Computers Hooked via Netgear Router
Linksys RP31P2 Phone Adaptor
One Computer Hooked via Linksys Phone Adaptor

My problem is I cannot reach the computer hooked via the linksys adaptor from anything on the netgear side of things. Everything works great except I cannot transfer files from systems behind the netgear router to the computer behind the linksys phone adaptor. I do want to keep the netgear as my primary firewall and router.

Can anyone guide me in getting these two talking.

Thanks in advance to all

Matthew

The Linksys is acting as a firewall, isolating your one computer from the others. You can probably make it work by disabling NAT on the Linksys (Setup->Advanced Routing), but it would be much easier to connect all your computers to the same place. If you don't have enough ports in the Netgear, you can always get a small hub or switch to get more ports.

PostPosted: Wed Mar 02, 2005 1:31 am    Post subject: Connect your computer to the Netgear instead of the Linksys Reply with quote Back to top

Is there any reason you need to connect your computer through the Linksys router? I think the ideal setup would have been to leave your netgear alone and the Linksys would just be used to run Voip. The only time you should need to connect your computer to the Linksys is for initial configuration. Here's my instructions on how to use the Linksys with an existign router:

I'm no network expert. I read a bunch of posts in various forums and here's the simplest way I've found to make it work without disturbing an existing router. I've tried to word everything as simple as possible and start from the time the Linksys RT31P2 still has factory settings...


PRINT THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

These instructions assume the Linksys RT31P2 still has the factory settings. If you’ve already changed the settings, you can reset to factory settings by holding down the Reset button at the back of the router for 10 seconds. If you already have your Voip service working with the Linksys RT31P2 router, you can skip to STEP 2.


STEP 1: Getting the Linksys RT31P2 to connect to the Internet and getting Voip to work with your phone (without your existing router).

You’ll need to write down some information from your existing router. DSL users: write down your username and password. Cable users: write down the router’s MAC address. Everyone: write down the DNS addresses from your existing router’s settings.

Unplug the Internet (WAN) cable from the back of your existing router and plug it into the Linksys RT31P2’s Internet jack. (This is the cable that connects your DSL/cable modem to your existing router.)

Unplug the cable that connects your computer to your existing router. Connect the cable from your computer to jack 1, 2 or 3 behind the Linksys RT31P2.

Open your Web browser and go to 192.168.15.1 to access the Linksys RT31P2. Use admin/admin as the username/password.

Configure the Linksys RT31P2 to connect with the Internet.
DSL users: Select PPPoE next to Internet Connection Type, click Save Settings at bottom.
Cable users: Click the MAC Address Clone tab, select Enable next to MAC Clone Service, enter the MAC address from your existing router (do not click the “Clone” button as that will change the MAC you just entered), click Save Settings.
If DNS addresses were required in your existing router, enter those addresses into the Linksys RT31P2’s settings as well. Remember to click Save Settings.

Open your Web browser and visit some websites to ensure connection to the Internet is successful. The power light on the Linksys RT31P2 router may blink for up to 5 minutes while it communicates with your Voip service provider for updates/settings. Once the power light has stopped blinking, plug a telephone into the Linksys RT31P2’s telephone 1 or 2 jack. Pick up the telephone handset and check for a dial tone.

(At this time, you can either leave the Linksys RT31P2’s password and IP address as set by the factory or change it to your preference.)


Step 2: Getting the Linksys RT31P2 to work with your existing router. (If you skipped Step 1: write down the DNS addresses from your existing router. Then unplug the cable that connects your computer to your existing router and connect the cable from your computer to jack 1, 2 or 3 of the Linksys RT31P2.)

Access the Linksys RT31P2: Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of the Linksys RT31P2 (the default address is 192.168.15.1). Enter the username/password (default is admin/admin).

Select Static IP from the drop-down list next to Internet Connection Type.

Next to IP Address, enter an internal IP address. (I used 192.168.1.20 because my existing router’s DHCP is set to assign IP addresses from 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.20. You can try this address as well. If it doesn’t work, you’ll have to look into your existing router’s DHCP settings to determine what IP address to use.)

Leave Subnet Mask as 255.255.255.0.

Default Gateway is the IP address of your existing router. (This is the IP address you enter into your browser to access your existing router.)

Enter the DNS address(es). (You wrote these down earlier from your existing router).

Click “Save Settings” at the bottom of page.

Unplug the cable from the Internet jack behind the Linksys RT31P2 and plug it back into your existing router’s Internet (WAN) jack.

Connect a network cable from any jack on your existing router (other than WAN/Internet) to the Internet jack of the Linksys RT31P2.

Pick up the telephone handset and check for a dial tone. If you hear a dial tone, all is well.

You can now disconnect your computer from the Linksys RT31P2 and plug it back into your existing router.

PostPosted: Wed Mar 02, 2005 8:30 am    Post subject: Info appreciated however.. Reply with quote Back to top

The reason that I have one computer hooked via the linksys is because the main router and switch are in the junction box downstairs and the linksys adapter is plugged into the wall jack upstairs where the phone and office area are. The house is smart wired with cat5e. I think what I am going to have to do is move the linksys adapter into the junction box and plug directly into the phone switch using a cat5e to regular phone jack adapter. This way I take the linksys out of the equation all together as far as computers are concerned. I did try to setup the linksys using the same IP range as the main router however I still could not see the computer behing the linksys. I believe there is a problem with he linksys and dmz and port forwarding. Thanks for the details and information you provided, it was helpfull.

If you want to talk to your other PCs, you just need to configure the RT31P2 as a simple switch, not a router. Those instructions can be found here in the forums.
