Hi,

I have the following devices:

Netgear TA612V - VOIP adapter with two phone ports, a WAN port and a LAN port
Netgear WGT624v3 - Wireless router with 4 LAN ports and a WAN port
Motorola modem for the Telstra cable service

This is what I want to do with the above - set up TA612V to be the primary router so that it can do the Qos stuff with Italk but with my LAN going through WGT624 as the gateway as that is the more flexible router for my other needs.

I have found some documentation on this, but nothing that is specific to NZ.  There is something interesting on the Australian Netgear support site, particularly the link to a pdf labelled TA612V and BigPond Cable with existing NETGEAR Router.

I tried this setup by connecting the WAN port on the WGT624 to the LAN port of TA612V and enabling DHCP on TA612V.  The WGT624 succeeded in getting the IP through the internet port but I can't ping any site from any computer on the LAN.  Am I doing something wrong?  Am I missing something?

The pdf I mentioned earlier mentioned setting up port forwarding to forward Telstra Bigpond Cable heartbeats but I don't think this would apply here in NZ.  I also called the Netgear support number but they weren't much help either - they suggested that I needed to do port forwarding as well for packets to get through to the TA612V and to ask Telstra what port it is that I need to forward. 

This doesn't really make sense to me.  Any ideas?

The WGT624 supports QoS - why not simply things and use that as the main router and plug the VoIP adapter into it? What you want to do is a very messy configuration - if your main router didn't support QoS it could be a solution to maintain voice quality but with a QoS capable router it's rather pointless.

Sorry I must have missed something.  Does WGT624 have Qos for VOIP?  I have looked through the web admin pages for the router and I haven't found any.  And I haven't seen anything about it in the manual.  If it did then what you suggest would indeed be much easier to set up.

Set it up with statics. I doubt the TA612V will be able to NAT a subnet which is not configued on its LAN port so you will have to do NAT on both the routers, bit of a no no but *shrug*.

Modem<->1st router WAN Interface, NAT,Static IP from TCL.  1st routers LAN interface, stub network 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.252 <-> 2nd Router WAN interface NAT 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.252, default route/gateway 192.168.1.1. 2nd Router LAN interface 192.168.1.129 255.255.255.128 DHCP pool 192.168.1.130-254.

After looking into this a bit further it may not. I simply did a Google search for "WGT624 QOS" and the first few links for reviews showed that the router supported QoS but upon on the Netgear site I can't see this mentioned. What version firmware do you have?
