First of all .... I apologize if this is off topic / or not the right group - but I am hoping that someone has the answer or can direct me to the answer.
I just switched from Comcast to FIOS.
I used to have linksys cable modem vonage motorola vt2442 phone lines, and 16 port switch that has all the computers, printers, NAS storage, access points, etc. Basically - with Comcast I was using the vonage router as a router and it was connected to my phones.
I have verizon actiontec modem/router/wireless access point vonage motorola vt2442 phone lines, and 16 port switch that has all the computers, printers, NAS storage, etc. Now basically - with Verizon FIOS, I have the 16 port switch connected to LAN port 1, and have the vonage motorola vt2442 connected to a LAN port 2, with only phones connected to the vonage motorola VT2442.
All is working well - as I assumed it would.
My question is ... are there any ports on the verizon actiontec router I need to open up to allow vonage to work correctly / better?
I swept thru the vonage help site, dsl reports, vonage forums. There was only some reference to "IF you were having problems - open these ports". There was no discussion regarding voice QOS for vonage device/router behind another router. Also - no discussion regarding two way communication needed for vonage updates or heartbeat communications / firmware updates, etc.
I called vonage tech support - and they knew less than the web site. They suggested putting the vonage motorola vt2442 in the dmz off the verizon actiontec router - but without any real rhyme or reason or explanation.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
