I wish I could attribute it to a Cablevision service outage but I can't. If I disconnect the ATA and hook my laptop to the modem, everything is fine. My problem is definitely with the ATA. Like I said, I'm hoping it's just that it doesn't work well in the pass through mode and can't handle the traffic. So far the outages have been like clockwork, every other day, right about midnight. It's not difficult to reboot the system,it's just a pain in the butt. I also found it's better to allow the ATA ten minutes instead of the recommended five to re-establish a connection.

definitely see if you can put it behind your router, then. if there is some pinging or something going on at midnight every night, maybe sticking it behind your router will make it go away?

good luck!

It's behind the router and so far, so good. I guess I'll know in a few days. I've seen references to tweaking the setup(redirecting ports and such) when using it in this manner but mine installed behind the router without any changes.

That's it! It went down again. This time I can't get it back up. I give up. It's going back.

Today I realized that Vonage was getting a DHCP address from my ISP (Millenium Cable) but then giving my router a private IP address. This is no good for me because I run mail/web/etc servers on my home network that I need to be reachable from the outside world, and I did not want to use the limited port forwarding in the MTA when I have the much better facilities in my Netgear router.

My setup was (and still is):

cable modem ---> Vonage MTA ---> netgear router ---> my PCs

After much playing about and frustrating dead-ends I finally made this work.

1) Disable NAT on the Vonage MTA.

2) Reboot everything in order (cable modem then Vonage mta then netgear router), and then reboot the cable modem *again* so that it gets a chance to "see" the netgear router through the MTA pass-through.

This worked for me, but the second reboot of the cable modem was important. I remember my cable installer telling me that the cable modem would need to be rebooted any time a different device was plugged into the network port, so I tried it and it worked.

Everything seems to be working just great now.

However, I have one question. I can no longer ping or http to 192.168.102.1. It seems that the MTA has turned off it's listeners. So if I ever want to change the configuration on my MTA it seems I'm screwed and I cannot find a way in the documentation to return the MTA to factory settings. This might be because my internal network is not 192.168.102.x - I use 192.168.0.x since that is the netgear default. But with the MTA in NAT mode I was still able to successfully ping/http to the MTA on 192.169.102.1.

So, just in case I need to make a change in the future, does anyone know how I would restore my MTA to its default settings? Or how I can get back into the http interface?

Thanks, and I hope my experiences help anyone trying to get this to work. Smile

Ah, I am now also experiencing the same problem.

I'm looking forward to trying this procedure!

You should be able to get back to factory defaults by disconnecting the vt1000 from the cable modem, plugging a pc into the LAN side of the vt1000 and rebooting the unit. When it comes back up it should respond at 192.168.102.1. Does that work?

Oh, forgot to mention that you should probably set the pc's static ip to 192.168.102.2.

there's a step by step in here somewhere for it. I was going to hunt it down. It's in a similar thread. search static ip and you'll probably find it. i had to set it up that way and then get back into it to turn the nat back on, etc.

i may give this another go this weekend. haven't had too many problems with the router this week, though.
