    Thanks ...

    My concern though at the time was for the Ooma terminal if the 23/2 internet connection speed was sufficient for best voice quality over VoIP.

    I have had to do a similar setup on my Ooma Telo for Remote Desktop Connection to my Windows PC. Leave the Ooma between the modem and router to maintain good call quality.

    On the Ooma, set the DHCP server to have a dynamic range of only one IP address and use port forwarding on the Ooma to forward your desired ports to that one address.

    Set up port forwarding on the router to forward those ports to the GenieGo. You will need to reserve the GenieGo's IP address in the router's DHCP setup.

    Yeah, although right now, before I switch the Ooma ter. to after the router. I'm seeing if I can have the best of both hookup arrangements by trying Bob's suggestion of placing the entire router in the DMZ. Therefore outside the Ooma's firewall.

    Both GG ports are fowarded on the router and I deleted the ports in the Ooma's settings and the GG connectivity test passes so I know the router is indeed in the DMZ past the Ooma's firewall.

    However OOH streaming is still only partially working. Trying to stream many shows simply give the message that GG streaming is unavailable. So oh well ...

    Running things through ooma is just complicating things. You should be fine with your speeds. Also you can still set qos in the router to always prioritize the ooma. That's the only reason they want you to run the stuff through the ooma. So that its qos is set for the ooma for priority.

    I'm having a similar issue with trying to get my GG past my modem to get to the router. I have a netgear DM111PsPv2modem/router and an Asus RT68R wirelessrouter. I did all the port forwarding on the Asus router but I can't get the firewall rules on the modem to accept the GG address. I had this combination working a while ago but not sure what happened. The address on the router for the GG is 192.168.1.75 but when I try to put that in the modem to allow it past the firewall I keep getting an illegal address error. I tried runnhing the modem in just modem mode not modem/router mode and it kills my internet connection. Not sure what is going on. (not trying to hijack the thread... thought this was similar)

    Thanks,

    Nick

    You need to forward the ports in the Netgear to the ASUS IP . . . then in the ASUS forward to the GG IP. (and reserve that one in the Asus).

    Correct. ...

    Remember routers can only "route" between different networks or subnetworks. So the Netgear routes to and fro, to the (sub)network the ASUS is on. And then the ASUS routes to and fro, to the (sub)network the GG is on.

    As with the Ooma when placed ahead of the router. The www IP <----> to the 172.27.35.xxx private IP range.

    Then router at 172.27.35.28 <----> to the 192.168.1.xxx private IP range.

    But does the Netgear have a setting to place the ASUS router in the DMZ?

    Or even this question, Can you put the Netgear in Bridge mode (to make it transparent and just a modem)? You really don't need 2 routers and it complicates life.

    He said he tried that (called it "modem mode" w/o the router"), but it kills his internet connection for some reason ...

    Everybody has their likes and dis-likes but I've never been a fan of Netgear. They had some firmware updates that broke DHCP on wireless years ago that burned me.

    I'll try using the routers IP address through the netgear and see what that does.

    I'm also assuming that you're using the WAN port on the ASUS from a LAN port on the Netgear. (different networks)

    Again, does the Netgear have a DMZ option in it's settings?

    I did not see a DMZ option in the settings.

    I put the address of the router that was shown in the netgear settings as a connected device. That took care of it. Out of home access is now set up properly.

    Thanks...

    Now if I I could find a way to check the c link green led on my cinema connection kit. shows amber then goes out but everything at for whole home is working properly. I'm thinking the green LED is burnt out??

    Yes it does.
    The PC web based app GENIE (yeah Genie) is very flexible. There is an option in the WAN setup page to set an address default DMZ server.

    Contrary to others here, I am a fan of Netgear products. Can't recall in years the last time I had to reboot this thing. But its one of the higher end models with external antennas.
