    I just bought this router and am begining to think I should take it back.

    1. Problems with setting up a PS2 on the DMZ. PS2 can detect internet connection but always fails at DNAS authentication. Errors point to DNS issues. The settiings on my PS2 are set to static.

    2. I have VOIP and two networked (wired) pc's - The PC's are set to DHCP. If my pc's have internet access, my phone won't connect. If my phone connects, I don't have internet access on my PC's. I am using cable internet that gets its IP automatically. I have tried multiple things. I can ping my router but can't ping anything on the internet. from the router I can ping the internet. I can't ping my pc's from the router however which is wierd unless the router is only designed to ping out and not in. I have played with the QOS and nothing seems to help. I have rebooted the router, the cable modem, powered on/off the phone. Rebooted the PC's. It's crazy!!

    The WRTP54G is a Vonage router. I know it well, because I have one. It uses Vonage-customized firmware, and most of the good stuff is not accessible. I just put a WRT54G HyperWRT in front of my WRTP54G the other day because the WRTP54G is, well, great as a phone adapter.

    It sounds to me like you have some sort of setup issue on your network. But it is also possible that you have a defective router. First, take your PS out of the DMZ and try a simpler configuration. The PS may be demanding too many ports that need to be forwarded elsewhere (just a theory).

    PS: You might also want to try the Vonage Forums at - or call Customer Service.
