PostPosted: Sat Sep 17, 2005 9:00 am    Post subject: Added RTP300 for 3rd line & it doesn't connect Reply with quote Back to top

I have added a third phone number & Rec'd my RTP300.
My configuration is:

Cable modem to Linksys Wireless router WRTPG54G
The WRTP54G to the new RTP300

The RTP300 cable from Internet connection back to the WRTP54G ethernet connection.

Don't have a dial tone from the new modem.

Everything else works fine.
Any ideas?

Thanks

I reversed the procedure and put the RTP300 in from of the wireless router and get a dial tone on the RTP300 BUT not on the wireless.

Ideas appreciated

Thanks

Your configuration seems all right, and the experts here can probably help you get it working. Meanwhile, since it works with the RTP300 coming first, and since you probably want to assure priority for your phone anyway, why not put the RTP300 first and plug the wireless into an RTP300 ethernet port to see how that works?

Did the switch and the RPT300 is in front.
It works fine, the phone connected to it works fine and the Internet is up and running.
I have a cable running from the RPT Ethernet connector to the wirless Internet connection. Now I don't have phone capabilities, 2 line, from the wireless. I am right to run the cable to the blue internet port on the back router, right?

It appears that whichever router is in front allows phones to work fine. The back router doesn't get phone connections?

Thanks

Your setup sounds right. There's no disputing that the "back router" isn't getting a phone connection, but I don't understand why. I assume that you can connect to the internet through the wireless with the wireless behind the RTP (?). And you can connect to the internet through the RTP when it's behind the wireless? Let's hope one of the more experienced troubleshooters weighs in at this point.

Yes, I have internet access whichever way the wirelss router is set, front or back. However, I don't have phone access on the back router, whichever one it may be.
Frustrated and need three lines.

Thanks

Try using a free port instead of the WAN port on the 2nd router not connected to the the cable modem.

The 2nd router just needs to be a switch, not a router, so using a free port bypasses the WAN port's firewall and routing.

I do not have phone lines on both routers but this method solved a lot of configuration hassles in my setup. It made it transparent for my wireless computer to access resources on the RTP300 connected computers and vica-versa because they are all sharing the same gateway no matter which router they are connected to. The RTP300 is the only router working as such and is the only one handling firewall duties.

Doug,

If the advice from Csnet works, you might want to try the same trick, but with the RTP300 in back. That way the router with 2 phone lines gets priority over the one with just one line.

I forgot to mention that because both routers share the same RTP300 gateway, I changed the administration IP Address of the WRT54G to 192.168.15.2 instead of its default 192.168.1.1

Admin/Setup:
RTP300 192.168.15.1
WRT54G 192.168.15.2

Thanks for allthe advice and ideas, but to no avail yet! I've tried all the ideas EXCEPT looking at my Linksys congiguration.
Do you think that could be my problem?
If so, my other problem is that 'my dog ate my login/password' info. How should I go about resetting & reconfguring my both my routers?

Thanks

I don't know about the WRT, but the RTP has a reset button on the back panel. It's labelled, but recessed so that you need a thin probe to get at it. The book says to hold it down for about 5 seconds. I suspect the WRT has something similar.
