PostPosted: Sat Oct 08, 2005 1:29 pm    Post subject: Help with complex setup Reply with quote Back to top

I was wondering if someone could help with my setup:
Code:

              Internet
               |
         Cable Modem
                |
             WRT54G (using latest Sveasoft)
               |
       Computer(1)   - Wireless -  RTP300(1) - RTP300(2)
                                                    |
                                                Computer (2)

I am using the WRT54G as my main gateway (which will also handle of QoS for all Voip routers).

I would like to have both RTPs assigned a static address in the DHCP range (which I can set up via the WRT DHCP page). This is so that I can administer easily since their IPs are set.

I can set up the static addresses for the RTPs, and with remote access turned on I can get into the RTPs from any computer on the network. I also disabled DHCP on both RTPs since the WRT will act as the DHCP server.

The issue I am facing is that computer 2 can't get an IP address. How would I allow the RTP (2) to allow computer (2) to get an address on the network?

Also - are there any other complications due to this setup? What about Vonage network updates?[code]

I dont' know alot about network setups, but if your computer 2 is connected through the RTP 2 you need to turn the DHCP back on on that RTP. or connect it as a bridge rather than the router setup, but you need loop-back cables and it's a messier setup.. turn it back on and it shold be fine..

my setup is running kinda similar to that and it works with 2 routers having DHCP on, but file and print sharing don't work this way, you need it as a bridge i beleive to have that..

you will get a more detailed reply by someone who knows more I'm sure, I just know what i've read a million times on this forum, do a search and you'll find lots of usefull info Smile (the search on this forum actually works well) Smile

I guess my biggest hangup would be computer(2) being able to access the different network resources if it's under a different DHCP structure.

Ideally - I want to ensure that computer two can get to all shares and printers of the network.

I think thats why ppl set it up like this,
LAN cable from your first router(or modem) to LAN1 then a cable from LAN1 to WAN(or internet) then LAN3 to your computer, this makes it into a bridge and also allows teh phone portion to function.. again, try a search, there's posts explaining how to do this, they may include a different ATA but just substitute teh RT31P2 or Moto for the RTP 300..


here you go, i found a post.. http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic7801.html there's a link in there to yet another post both explain how to do this. Smile

Like me, you only need one router and one DHCP service.

As my signature implies, the cable modem connects to the WAN port of the RTP300 so the QOS in the RTP 300 gives the phone service top priority.

Instead of using the wireless WRT54G as a router, it is used as a combination switch + access point. Here's how: A standard (not reversing) CAT5 cable connects one of the ports of the RTP300 to one of the ports of the WRT54G. Very important, the WAN port of the WRT54G is not used at all. This way, all ports on both routers share the same gateway and DHCP service of the RTP300.

I left the RTP300 at its default 192.168.15.1 router address. I changed the WRT54G to 192.168.15.2.

Now any computer on the network can see the exposed resources of any other computer on the network whether it is a wireless computer using the WRT54G, or a computer connected to a port of either the WRT54G or the RTP300.

After posting the above, NOW I see you have 2 RTP300s. Smile

Does the phone service of an adapter only work if the WAN port of that adapter is used? I recommend you try connecting a port of the 2nd RTP300 to a port on the first RTP300 and see if you get phone service from that 2nd adapter.

It truly simplifies things if there is only one router and DHCP in the LAN. Please let us know if that works with 2 RTP300s.

ron2112,

could you try putting computer 2 behind rtp300(1) instead of 2 to see if it works? Then you can see that it's behind too many routers to get the ip from your wrt.

in other words, is there a particular reason why it has to be behind rtp300(2)?
