PostPosted: Tue Aug 23, 2005 2:01 pm    Post subject: RTP300 ahead or behind existing router Reply with quote Back to top

Hi all,

The directions that came with my RTP300 indicate that if there is an existing router, such as for wireless, that the RTP300 should go behind the existing one. I'd kind of like to have it in front so I can let it give voice bandwidth priority. I can't test it right now because my internet service from Adelphia won't be restored till Monday. I would think I could put it in front, but would like to hear others' thoughts.

My other question is also regarding the RTP300's instructions. The manual states that the phone port should only be connected to an actual telephone and not to a phone jack. I had my RT31P2 on the phone jack (after disconnecting the outside box from telco) and had no problems, and all my phones worked. My guess is they said this because they wanted to be safe and not assume the user physically disconnected from the telco at the outside box, running the risk of damage from telco voltage. Again, does my thinking seem on track?

Thanks,
Mike

My experience thus far.

The network-ability of the RTP300 still needs firmware work (even with .43). I have a Linksys VPN router sitting behind the RTP300 and the VPN portion of it doesn't go through (web traffic goes through fine). But you're right - putting the RTP300 behind another router (that doesn't have QoS) will sacrifice the QoS functionality.

Connecting the RTP300 to the wall jack is fine. I had it that way with the RT31P2 as well. I assume that it's a safeguard against people mistakenly blowing it up like you mention.

Yep...behind the other router and your QOS is gone..
As for the home wiring, they tell you not to do that as a CYA, because most people would try to just plug it into any old jack they found, then call techsupport wondering why their TA is fried...

thanks for the replies!

I'm relieved that it looks like I can use the phone jack still.

I am somewhat concerned about the VPN issue, as I do use VPN. However, I don't do it via VPN router; rather, I do it using a Nortel VPN software client. I don't know if that makes a difference. If not, I hope they get the VPN part fixed soon.

Sounds to me like you are doing outgoing VPN connections to a nortell account. I am not positive but I believe that what the other users are referring to is incoming VPN to their router. My router has VPN capability and I never use it but I am sure that other people use it. Especially if they have a small business and need to get into files from home.

Ray, you were correct. I've had about a week or so since my internet has been restored to work with the new router. I do use outgoing VPN and it works like a champ.

Also, the setup I use with the RTP300 has worked well. It's set up the following way:

SB5100 --> RTP300 --> MN500 wireless router

ISP is Adelphia 4000/368.

Firmware is 1.00.43

I have been very happy with the RTP300, especially since the phaser noise is gone and I don't have to mess with the spliced RJ11 on port 2 anymore.

The only thing that surprised me was that this router runs pretty warm too. From what I was hearing in the forums, I wasn't expecting that. The RTP is in a cool basement and has plenty of room to breathe. But it works like a champ, and I'm not complaining.

It's passing the spouse test with flying colors, and that's the most important thing, isn't it?
