Vonage spindley, I have almost an identical setup that you have and it works fine. Here


I have almost an identical setup that you have and it works fine.
Here is my specifics:

Ambit Cable Modem -> Linux machine (nic1 - DHCP)
Linux machine (nic2 - -> Simple 8 port Hub
Hub -> several PCs ( thru .6) and the RT31P2 (

Here are more of the details of my setup:

- RedHat 7.1 kernel 2.4.20-28.7
- Shorewall 1.4.10c
- I have QOS configured in the kernel via Shorewall. I am using HTB (hierarchical token buckets) which gives me complete control over the outgoing traffic.
- I am using the RT31P2 in a completely degenerate mode, i.e. just using it as a phone adaptor.
- I have my Linux box configured so that it is running a DHCP server and is supplying IPs to the PCs and the RT31P2. I have specifc IPs that are associated with the MAC addresses of the PCs and the RT31P2. I am confident I could configure the RT31P2 to have a static IP (and not get it's IP from the Linux box via DHCP) and make that work.
- I have a regular CAT5 cable running from my 8 port hub to the Internet (WAN) port on the RT31P2. This is the same kind of cable that runs from the hub to the PCs.
- I do NOT have ANY ports forwarded or treated in any special way on the Linux box for the benefit of the RT31P2. **** Any reasonable router that is doing connection tracking and can apply that to UDP traffic (e.g. iptables-1.2.8-8.72.3 in collaboration with the kernel) does NOT NEED PORTS forwarded. Forwarding ports will not hurt - it is just not needed. The RT31P2 constantly initiates a call home (that is why the led blinks about every ten seconds) to reestablish a connection. Look at /proc/net/ip_conntrack on your LInux box.

When I first got my RT31P2 I connected the WAN port to the hub and twiddled with the admin web pages to set it up and verify the MAC address. Once I had configured the RT31P2 I then setup the DHCP on the Linux box and power cycled the RT31P2. All is working well since.

1. What are the leds on the front of your RT31P2 doing? My Phone1 led is solid green and the Internet led is green but blinks every 10 secs or so.
2. Can you access the admin web pages in the RT31P2?

I don't see any reason why your RT31P2 would not work behind your Linux firewall.
