Odd WRT54G/Vonage RT31P2 throughput problem

  1. Hi there,

    I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place and if it is I'd be more than happy to move it. However I'm experiencing a couple of odd problems and I'm sure that they're related.

    I have just bought a RT31P2 from Vonage. I already had a WRT54G (v4 I think) that I had flashed to dd-wrt v23sp1. So I was looking at setting my network up like this:

    Cable Modem (NTL:Home 100) <-> WRT54G <-> RT31P2

    However when I do this if I use the phone the WRT54G becomes unresponsive to computers connected via either Wireless or Ethernet. I swapped the networking around to this:

    Cable Modem <-> RT31P2 <-> WRT54G

    And this allows me to use the internet at the same time as making a call.

    However to put more fuel on the fire I tested the speed of my connection (I'm on 10Mbps down and 512Kbps up). Wireless the best I get is 1Mbps down, though I do get close to full up speed. When connected to any of the devices via ethernet I get 8Mbps+ down. There are some other wireless networks in the area, and mine shares a channel with the weakest signal.

    Has anyone else experienced these kind of problems, and did you solve them?

    Thanks, Steve

    Edit: not v4, v2.2

    I am having a problem also, the power light(more than a few times an hour) starts to blink and the cisco light at that time stops glowing.....as this is happening, I loose internet/network connection, and my 2 wireless computers that are connected to the network have ip address conflicts?????
    Do you have any idea what is going on with this???
