    We are in the process of setting up a VPN using the RV042 but have not yet hooked it up.

    We currently have a Linksys RTP300 VoIP router on a network that is setup like this... Note that everything is Static-based;nothing is running DHCP on this setup: Everything is working fine.

    Windows 2003 Server with (2) Nics:
    Internal NIC/LAN IP =
    GW: empty
    External NIC/LAN IP =

    Server configured to run RRAS so the client PCs can route out to the Internet using the external NIC. We are trying to isolate the network from the Internet by using (2) NICs

    LAN IP:
    Configured with ISP Static IP & Gateway & DNS information

    LAN IP:
    GW: empty

    The ISP cable modem plugs into the main network switch and then into the RTP300's Internet port.

    We want everything to remain static whe we introduce the RV042. How do we set this up, namely physical cable connections & IP information. Are there any particular settings in either router we need to disable, enable, etc?

    Here's what we think:

    The RV042 WAN1 port will plug into the ISP Cable modem
    The cable modem is plugged into the main network switch
    The INTERNET port on the RTP300 is plugged into an Ethernet port on the RV042

    We change the settings in the RTP300 listed above to:

    LAN IP: (treat it like a Client PC)
    Remove all ISP settings

    On the new RV042; we set it up like the RTP300 was setup. Then setup up the VPN.
    Does all of these seem correct? Thanks!
