I am glad the link works now........... I hope this helps people out, although yahoo briefcase states that you can't share public files with their free version anymore............ Of course I don't care as long as it works now............

Mundy5, you are basically just patching the rt31pt by running the wan to it's own lan. It's like capping it off or however you want to put it. This is how alot of people do it. I was told to do it this way and it works really good so I use it. I haven't tried reversing the setup & switching the routers around for QOS but I imagine you could do this setup exactly opposite for that affect. I dropped the bandwidth saver to normal 30kbps & I still get excellent sound quality. With edonkey however it still cuts out some on the other parties line but it is better & doesn't cut them off completely. I may be able to fix this altogther by putting the rt31pt in front & using QOS if I ever get around to doing it. For now I am getting great service though...............

Hmm... Being able to intentionally create dropouts would be a nice option for some phone calls. <evil grin>

What is the benefit of setting up two routers like this?


My BEFW11S4 is a wireless router & I already had it before I got my RT31PT Vonage router. If I wouldn't have already had a wireless router I would have just bought a Vonage router with wireless built in. There is no reason to trash my current router just so I can use one router for everything. Plus if you have more pc's than ports on your router you either have to get an 8 or more port router or get a second router/switch/hub according to your needs. I only have 2 pc's wired to my lan & one laptop setup wireless but I have 5 pc's in all & if I decided to hook them all up that would be 4 wired & one wireless. My BEFW11S4 has 4 ethernet lan ports & wireless capability but my Vonage RT31PT only has 3 ethernet lans & no wireless. Although you could get one router that had Voip, 4 to 8 ports & wireless capablity to handle all of this like I said above im not trashing my wireless router for this especially when Vonage sent my RT31PT for no charge.................

If you really think about it though; you will eventually have to use another switch or hub if your network gets large enough. A second router is not necessary for normal network expansion but under the circumstances it is. For normal network expansion a switch would be ideal.............

Oh & I almost forgot the very very most important reason for having more than one router if it is a Linksys: "LINKSYS ROUTERS LOOK SO DAMM AWESOME STACKED ON TOP OF EACH OTHER"........ It's like the ultimate decore for a tech head like me & others on this forum & techies all over the world.........

I hope this helps.............
Thanks,

You know, you may be onto something here.............
But seriously an unintentional yet perfectly timed sequence of cut outs happened when a telemarketer called me one day & it was funny. He was like I can't here you & there is that eh_eh_ya_eh cutting out sound (you know what I mean) & I was thinking sweet revenge baby............
I know the guy was just doing his job but it was still perfect timing/funny..............
If it is someone I want to talk to I will just simply stop edonkey, although I am soon to start using QOS to see if I can stop it altogether...........

If you did want to intentionally do it at intervals you could have a large file just setting there on your pc waiting like a beast to be uploaded to any unsuspecting victim of a site. When you get the unwanted call you could answer it and then drop the bomb on them_________ baaaaaby......Pissed Off....... You dropped a bomb on them............ Or we could just screen our calls with caller id like regular humans but where would the fun be in that.................

Not to get off subject but I have to mention; has anyone seen the popcorn eating emoticon? It looks like it is doing something else or maybe it's just me........... Popcorn ............ Maybe we should forget I mentioned it LOL...........

I just tried this... changed the QoS on my WRT54GS to give the Voip the lowest priority and sure 'nuf, it worked beautifully. I'll have to remember this trick when relatives call & are being far too long winded.

CH3MI5TR4NG3R,

I just connected my two routers as you described and now I can connect computers to each router and they all talk. I have a modem-to-WRT54GS-to-RTP300 configuration with computers connected to each router.

I had to disable the DHCP server in the RTP300 and also had to disable the Firewall in the RTP300. When I did that, all seemed to go well. All computers are now communicating as they were before the new router. Since each router has 4 ethernet ports and 3 are consumed in this connection, I have 5 available. Any further expansions will necessitate a switch, but for now...

Note that I also have a VPN connecting satisfactorily from two computers, one connects through each router.

How can I get admin access to the Linksys?

I have a Belkin Wireless G router F5D7320-4 and a Linksys RT31P2 in your configuration.

Seems to work fine (>10min) but I can't get to the Linksys' admin page. I disabled DHCP on it. What else should I do, or is this not going to happen anyway. I really don't understand how that all works plugging the WAN into an E-port...

Try to connect your computer to one of the RP31 router ports. I can only access the Linksys Admin page from a computer connected directly to the Voip router.

I am assuming that the WAN port of router #2 is attached to a LAN port of router #1 and that your PC is normally attached to router#1.

In order to access the router #2 even though your PCis attached to router #1, you need to allow "remote administration" on router #2 (that's sort of through the back door).

Follow these steps:

First connect your PC to router #2 through a LAN port.

Allow for remote administration: Go to Administration - Management and allow for Remote Management. You also need to specify a port, say 4563 for example. Save the settings and reconnect your PC to router #1 (LAN port).

You now need to figure out what address this router (#1) assigned to router #2. You can either try to guess or go into Administration/Advanced Routing/Show Routing Table (which should show everything that's hanging off of that router). Let's say it is http://192.168.15.101. Once you know that, just put it in your browser address, followed by the port number, e.g.:

http://192.168.15.101:4563

Et voila. You can bookmark the page which will allow you to get back in there, so long as router # does not assign a new address - you would have to look for it again, the port # would remain unchanged.

PS: do understand that, for security purposes, you just opened a back door and left it open. Router #1 is till there "hiding the network", however.
