Ok, after speaking to someone that speaks good English I found out that it does need to be connected to the WAN port. Ususally when you connect two router together you want to plug the cable into ports on the switch end of the router instead of the WAN port. The tech support individual stated that for this Linksys router it HAS to be plugged into the WAN port. My pc that was plugged into the Linksys router can no longer get an IP address from my D-Link wireless router because there is not a cable in place from a free port on the d-link to a free port on the linksys. So I have to plug my pc back into the D-Link for it to get an IP.

So...

If I want to login to the Linksys router I need to setup Remote Admin? Wouldn't think I'd have to do that. I've been screwing with this stuff so much this a.m. I don't remember how the hell I logged into it the first place earlier.

Yeah, you have to setup remote administration because you're not logging into your 2nd router as the dhcp manager. So setup remote administration. You'll have to login with your pc plugged into that router. You'll probably have to rest the router using the reset switch on the back so that you will be able to log back into the router since you changed it's IP address. (NOTE: you will have to setup your settings again on this router.) Change the password of your router and setup remote administration at the same time. Save the changes. Log back into the router with the new password and give the router it's static IP address w/ DNS and Gateway settings (other router address). reboot the router with the new changes and you'll get the static IP again. Do an ipconfig /refresh then a /renew and you should get an IP address from your first router. Go to an IE window and type in the static IP of the second router, you should be able to see the login screen for that router.

You shouldn't need to do that.

The linksys unit will get its IP from the Dlink. Make sure that the linksys unit has dhcp disabled and that its IP address is different form the dlink. DLink 192.168.1.1 : linksys 192.168.1.2. And do not use the WAN port on the linksys, plug the cable from port 1 on the dlink to port 1-4 on the linksys.

Through your browser you will then beable to view both set up pages
192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2 from any pc plugged into either unit.

Tried that but no luck. I try it again. My phone has cut out on me since I've changed my hardware setup around. Grr.. But my bandwith for getting on the internet is back. The Linksys was really slowing me down. It appears the unit I have has a capacity of 10Mpbs. ****?

Need some help:

1) I cannot access my Linksys RT unit. I cannot find the IP address to login. Also...is it normal that the phone light is off on the RT when you connect your router to a regular port on the RT instead of the WAN port.

2) My QOS ****. How do you guys get your QOS so high?

3) My MAX Pause looks to be off the scale compared to those that are testing well. Is there a way to correct this?

By the way. Isn't it risky plugging my RT into my DLink router via a regular port on the RT instead of the WAN port. I've discovered that if for any reason you power cycle the RT you lose phone service. The only way to get it back online is plug the ethernet cable back into the WAN port on the RT. Seems you can move it back to a regular port once online. But...do you lose phone service again over time?

It will give you a basic idea

After looking through some dlink pages it appears that your standard dlink ip is 192.168.0.1 and from the screen shots I saw you can't change the 2nd to last digit

The standard linksys ip is 192.168.1.1, I would attempt changing this to 192.168.0.2

Could some of you help me on my posting?

Unable to set up Router No Dial tone+ many attempts


My emotions are close to the service on this. I give a short history, not a rant.

I have been w/o dial tone since Wednesday, and I am trying to switch out a "defective" RT for a new one.

Only trouble is that before the line dropped, I spent 3 hours, mostly on hold with different techies Wednesday afternoon trying to get Vonage service up. I The service died after someone changed a setting at Vonage on Wednesday.

I have also made 4 special emails to the tech department in three days without any acknowledgment, not even an auto reply.

Even yesterday, when I called from 20 miles away to talk to a person, I got a "supervisor" who told me that my problem was due to me having a cordless phone, not a line phone.

He also insisted that my new modem was good because it hit the Vonage system when I daisy chained it through the old RT.

I still did hot have any dial tone, no matter what I did. Thus I am wrong, Vonage right, and I feel like I got a kick in the pants.

For more details as to what I have done please go back to the string.

Well...I followed the instructions at the Linksys link. It's not clear if I should be plugging my DLink into the WAN port or one of the regular ports on the Linksys. It appears as though it wants you to plug into the WAN port.

However, if I plug my laptop into a port on the Linksys now I cannot get on the internet. The Vonage service does work. I cannot log into the Linksys from my laptop directly connected to the Linksys nor can I log into the Linksys from my desktop that is plugged into the DLink -> Linksys.

???

okay....I must be in a hurry..

The cable between the DLink and the Linksys has been moved. It now comes from port 1 on the DLink to port 1 on the Linksys. Now I can login and now I get an IP address on my laptop when it's connected to the Linksys. So....they makes it obvious.

However, I'm a little concerned about the phone light on the front. It does go off shortly after making this cable change. PLUS....I lose phone service as well.

So....I guess I have to move the DLink cable back to going into the WAN port on the Linksys otherwise this simply doesn't work. How does you other guys get this to work when you have Cable Modem -> Router -> Vonage RT/Adapter?????
