PostPosted: Thu Nov 03, 2005 4:24 pm    Post subject: Linksys RTP300 router slows down Fios Reply with quote Back to top

I was talking to a verizon tech and he mentioned they use PPPoE for Fios. I checked my linksys (RTP300) router and by default it isn't configured for PPPoe, it's configured for obtain IP automatically. I'm a newb and don't know what the correct configuration is but I do know that if I use the default router (dlink 604) which comes free with Fios my websites load instantly. With the Linksys it takes about 30-60 seconds for even google.com to load.

Here is a model of my setup:
[mycomputer]----[Linksys]----[Dlink] = Slow
[mycomputer]-------------------[Dlink] = Fast

Before upgrading to Fios everything ran perfect on Comcast.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Why not put the DLink first in the circuit and forward the necessary ports to the Linksys for Vonage to work? Let the DLink route to the Linksys and not vice versa?

That's the way I have it setup.

I understand that my model

[mycomputer]---[linksys]---[dlink]

isn't very clear, so I'll try to explain it better here.

My computer connects to the linksys RPT300 which connects to the Dlink 604 which connects to the Fios box.

[mycomputer]--->[linksys]--->[Dlink]--->[Fios]

I hope this makes more sense

I think he means you should connect like this:

[Linksys]------
                     |----[DLink]-----[FIOS]
[Computer]---

Then put the Linksys on a DMZ for the DLink or forward the Voip ports from the DLink to the Linksys. This setup will give your computer the high speed connection and give the Voip the connection it needs.

Your right however I can't do this because my room only has one jack which can be connected to the dlink in my basement. I then plug my linksys into this and have two computers and my phone connected to it.

[Mycomputer]-----\
[Myserver]-------->[linksys]--->[walljack]--->[dlink]-->[Fios]
[Myphone]---------/


It seems the best resolution would come from someone who knows how to configure PPPoE for a Linksys RTP300 to work with Fios.

The RTP300 seems to have a weak router in it to begin with (see the other threads about it bogging down), so it very well might not be capable of dealing with FIOS-type speeds. Get a cheap switch/hub and connect it to the wall jack, then you can plug in as many things as you desire without them having to go through the RTP300.

*or*

If the wiring diagram you show is the total extent of your network, move the Netgear router into the room where all of your computers are. They make RJ-45 couplers if wire length/ends are an issue.

The RTP300's WAN port, like many consumer grade routers, cannot go faster than 10Mbps, the D-link they give you can. It looks like you have the setup exactly the way I would have it - Fios to D Link to RTP300 to PC.

How slow exactly is your PC running? Have you done any speedtests? (Not the Verizon fios test either. I hear thats more of an animated GIF than an actual test, but what do I know...)

Try adding in some static DNS into your RTP300, that your PC is plugged into, I'm interested in this because fios may be available in my area soon so let us know what happens.

I figured it out! Apparently power cycling it doesn't reset it enough. Once you switch over to Fios you need to hard reset the Linksys RTP300 by simply pressing and holding a paper clip or pen cap in the tiny hole in the back of the router for 45 seconds while the power is ON. Then magically it works like it should. I asked the tech why that worked and he said "I have no idea."

Glad you got it working. I have to admit, I hadn't hear of FIOS before, and now that I have, let me just say.
