Thanks for the reply. The adapter is a Motorola VT1005v used with Vonage. So if I understand correctly after resetting the DHCP (sorry for the non-technical language) I will have .20 through .254 as dynamic IP addresses that can be obtained automatically by devices. Furthermore, IP's .2 through 19 can be assigned as static IP's. If I do this will the static devices, be listed in my router where I can see all of my connected devices. Or will my router only list those within LAN range .20 through .254. Also the phone adapter requires some UDP ports to be forwarded, (see below). If I put the adapter outside the LAN range and I assign it a static IP will I still need to port forward those ports. I'm asking this because in the router configuration when I specify a port it asks for the IP address. Will that work even though it's outside the LAN range?
The following ports are needed for OUTGOING Internet communications from the Vonage device to the Vonage servers.
DNS: Port 53 UDP
TFTP: Ports 21, 69, 2400 UDP
HTTP: Port 80 UDP
NTP: Port 123 UDP
SIP: Port 5061 UDP
The following ports are needed for INCOMING and OUTGOING Internet communications from and to Vonage devices and servers.
RTP (Voice) Traffic: Ports 10000-20000 UDP. When a call is made, a random port between 10000 and 20000 is used for RTP (Voice) traffic. If any of these ports are blocked, you may experience one way or no audio.
Thanks for all you help….
