Dual WTRT54's and PAP2 VOIP Problem

    I am using two WTR54G's connected wirelessly via WDS using Alchemy firmware. I got some help with the configuration from using the setup guidelines Justin suggested in this post: WDS Setup for Satori/Alchemy. Setup was a snap and both routers worked great until I installed my new Linksys PAP2 VoIP adapter. Nobody at Linksys or Vonage is any help so I came here. Outgoing calls are great! with excellent quality and perfect service. When I added the additional router and extended service via WDS to my kitchen and reconnected the PAP2, I have had great outgoing service but I my phone only rings once before it defaults and sends it to my "network outage" number which is my cell. I have static ip's set for the PAP2 and both routers with all of the ports forwarded that both Linksys and Vonage suggested. I also enabled QOS via Alchemy and selected the H323 protocol. I didn't see a Vonage option but knew that H323 deals with telephony. I am not sure if this was the right setting or not. After rebooting both routers and the PAP2, it processes incoming calls properly for about an hour before it started forwarding them to my cell phone again. Each time I reboot the routers I get the same result.
    When I had the PAP2 hooked up to just the main router which is connected via CAT 5 to my Linksys cable modem, all incoming calls are processed normally. I keep looking for problems with my second WRT54G that I am connected to wirelessly. If anyone could shed some light on this setup I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks,

    Gregg

    Hi Greg,
    PAP2 is SIP based, not H.323 - I'm not familiar with the Alchemy firmware, but if there is a SIP option there that would be the one to use.

    Thank you so much for the suggestion. SIP was one of the options available in Alchemy and since I added it to the QOS profile all has been working well. I will keep an eye on the PAP2 through the weekend and let you know how everything is working after some more uptime.
