I know nothing about "Azureus", so can't help you, but I suggest you start a new thread with an appropriate title for the help you're looking for. Burying a question about RTP300 configuration and setup within a thread about RT31P2 disconnect issues isn't a very good way to get an answer.

PostPosted: Fri Nov 04, 2005 12:18 pm    Post subject: RT31P2 as a router / switch only. (Third party firmware.) Reply with quote Back to top

Just curious what non-Vonage Linksys product the RT31P2 is equivalent internally? I have an extra one of these and thought I would use it as a router if I could use other firmware on it, such as Alchemy. I would think it would have the same "guts" as the WRT54G, without the wireless and minus one ethernet port.

I have NO idea, just a shot in the dark. I have the WRTP54G i currently use for Vonage, but I also use P2P applications (eMule, eDonkey), so I'm having the same disconnect problems as everyone else.

I would put the WRTP54G behind the RT31P2 and use it for wireless, as I would connect the dedicated P2P computer to an ethernet port on the RT31P2.

If this doesn't work, I will just purchase a WRT54G and use the WRTP54G behind it with the wireless disabled.

Any help or information is appreciated! Idea

Its not the equivalent of any other Linksys router, except for the wireless WRT54GP2, another Vonage router, with wireless. The ONLY thing those two routers share with the common WRT54G is the same case, the guts are completely different, and the firmware is not Linux based, so no third party firmware for them.

When you go buy your WRT54G, just make sure its not the newest v5, or you won't be able to run third party software either.

dmanmad & dallasflier,

I recall reading posts on the overheating issue a long time ago. As far as I know, the two of you have found a suitable answer if you wish to stack these routers on top of each other. I have my rt31p2 by itself and have never had overheating issues except when my 6 yr old son puts papers on top of the vents Very Happy

But if it is overheating when it is by itself, then it's definitely defective. You should try a test by removing the rt31p2 a significant distance away from any other heat source to see if it is still overheating.

Lets see, I have my RT31P2 in a stack of 3 as the MIDDLE device, and its barely above room temperature when I touch it. It works perfectly, its been currently at least two months since its been rebooted, and the stack of 3 looks nice. So I should try a test why??

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Oh, by the way, my PC would overheat and quit running without fans too. Maybe its defective too. <shrug>

Dallasflier,

I apologize, I was talking to dmanmad when I was talking about testing since he was unclear as to why he was having disconnects. I was not addressing you for the test since you obviously have a solution. I am sorry it was not crystal clear on my post who I was addressing for the test.

Alright, after months of troubleshooting and holding onto my technical pride by not asking for help, I am finally at my wits end.

For at least 4-5 months now I have had Vonage in my home with the setup as follows: My own Linksys BEFCMU10 ver2 -> RT31P2 -> 2 other computers and a Uniden TRU8888 Expandable cordless phone.

The problem i have been having is this: I use VPN at my home just fine. and have the QoS set to 512 (but at one point it was set to 384). Several times a day while using VPN working from home, the cable modem will not disconnect or reset, but literally crash, leaving me no other option but to actually unplug and reset the cable modem in order to regain my internet connection. I cannot time it, but it happens so often I can bet that it will happen within a period of time. I have noticed over my months of troubleshooting that it seems to get messed when throughput must become saturated and for some reason, cannot handle it and crashes. I returned ComCast's cable modem to try to fix this as this also happened with their modem. I too have the promo of 8Mb/768Mb transfer. Had the RT31P2 replaced to fix this. Removed the stack of the 2 devices because I noticed that the generated heat may have been an issue. I have literally run out of options.

Anything you guys/gals may be able to suggest would be great because it happens to me, but it really isn't me that I am concerned with as my wife works from home and she is at wits end calling me everytime it goes down. I cannot tell you how many times I have called both Vonagte AND Comcast to try to resolve this. I have not experienced the super long wait periods you have experienced when calling Vonage, however I do have a huge issue with their understanding and their textbook reading solutions. But then hey, Clinton Embarassed signed the bill to extend the reach of outsourcing and Bush Twisted Evil was re-elected...yAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!

Well, although I'm not fond of the routing capability of the RT31P2, in this case it sure sounds like its the cable modem, not the router, since resetting it solves the problem every time. The v2 version of the BEFCMU10 is an older DOCSIS 1.0 only modem, and its possible that 8M/768k is enough to swamp it, when operating near the peak of those bandwidths. In addition, its possible that Comcast's modem was also older. I'd recommend purchasing a newer model of the BEFCMU10, which is what I'm using myself here on my Comcast line, although at a lower tier speed than you're at. You can get the latest version (v4?) of the BEFCMU10 relatively expensively via eBay, and even the v3 is fully DOCSIS 2.0 compliant and capable of higher speeds. Can't guarantee that's the solution, but its what I'd try.
