    I have a WRT54GP2 that I've been using for several years, but I'd like to configure it to extend my network rather than operate as a router. I'm using it as a router behind my existing Linux router. It runs my VoIP as well as handles my wireless connections.

    So, I configured it to run alongside my existing network with a LAN to LAN connection between the WRT54GP2 and my Linux router. Both are on the same subnet, where the two routers have different IPs. All is well, but VoIP on the WRT54GP2 does not work I assume because it needs to use the internet connection (which is now unplugged) for VoIP. NAT and DHCP are disabled on the WRT54GP2.

    Is my only option to buy a separate VoIP adapter and not use the one built into the WRT54GP2? I've tried connecting both the LAN and internet connection to my Linux router, where the internet IP is either on the same subnet or not on the same subnet. In both cases, the device is not fully operational. When I choose an IP on a different subnet, VoIP works, but the WRT54GP2 no longer operates as a switch. I cannot get to the setup page from a machine on the Linux router.

    Any advice would be appreciated. I know the topic of using a WRT54G as an access point/switch has been rehashed over and over, but I see very little on trying to use the WRT54GP2's VoIP capabilities at the same time.
