G- Actually, you can't put it in front of the modem, it expects ethernet,
G- unless they have some kind of dual hardware that does the dsl modem
G- thing, but then, you wouldn't need the other modem.
Yes - I understand.
I wasn't clear or correct here. I meant to say, "behind the
firewall/router". My system has two static Ips. What I really had in mind
[DSL modem]<-->[hub]<-->[IP1 firewall/router]<-->[Vonage adapter (ATA?)]<-->
| +--------> (computers)
+--->[IP2 firewall/router]<---> (computers)
Since there are two users on IP1, I felt a bit more comfortable putting the
hone adapter behind that side's router, parallel to their computers. I
suppose it wouldn't really matter for privacy or security if it were in
front, and might give a better phone line. I can't put the phone adapter
ahead of the hub due to the physical layout of our place.
Thanks for your help.
