    Just thought I'd ask a "gee whiz" question out of curiousity.. Is anyone else here running 2 routers for their home lab/home office connection? I figured this would be a good way for us all to compare notes on some issues that may occur such as double nat'ing, static routes, and the likes.

    I "always" run a minimum of two routers for my connection. Right now, I'm running a netgear dg834g router as my gateway with my wrv200 sitting behind it on its own subnet. From the WRV200 I have a vonage router (RT31P2) connected to one of its 4 LAN ports; the other end of the CAT5 is connected to the RT31P2's WAN port. From there, I have a second RT31P2 that's connected to the first RT31P2 in a similar fashion as the first one is to the WRV200.

    I'm looking at the very minimum of putting a static route between the netgear and the wrv200 because as of now, all I've done is just port forward from the netgear to the wrv200. The wife has been getting ill with me for always dropping the connection on wrv200 while she's on the voip, so I've got to expand on the infrastructure. Then again, ifcan has discovered the formula to route quickvpn through a pix, so I might put my pix 501 back up front instead :)

    Anybody else got a similar setup to share with default static routes implemented with linksys equipment? The more input, the more helpful for everyone... :)
