small network setup

#1
Hi,

I've been trying to following the 'small network setup'
http://www.voipfoneuserforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=2024
but unfortunately had no luck, let me explain what I'm trying to do.

we have 2 lines (2 routers, 2 internet connections), 1 for phones, 1 for Internet, so the computers and phones arnt connected. with the end goal being able to have the facility to click on a number while in an Internet browser and get it to call directly.

firstly we need to the computers to see the phones, i tried that setup for a small network but had no luck. is it just supposed to be as simple as switching one router DHCP off and leaving the other one on??? or do you have to change the phone settings.

second is, can some please recommend a piece of software that if everything worked, we could right click on a number on a web page and call it direct.

thanks for you help

Bradley

As well as turning off DHCP on one router static IP addresses need to be setup on either the PC's or phones. Usually setting them on the phones is the best idea.

Here is an example of how the IP's could be set up:


Router 1 - 192.168.1.1 - With DHCP pool of 192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.100
Router 2 - 192.168.1.2 - No DHCP pool

Computers:

Computers will get an IP from the above pool in the range of 192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.100 and will use the gateway of 192.168.1.1 automatically.

Phones:

Phones should have static IPs, the easiest way to do it is use the ending of the IP as the extension:

Phone 200 - 192.168.1.200
Phone 201 - 192.168.1.201
Phone 202 - 192.168.1.202
Phone 203 - 192.168.1.203
Phone 204 - 192.168.1.204
Phone 205 - 192.168.1.205
etc.

The gateway on the phones need to be set to 192.168.1.2 while the subnet is set to 255.255.255.0 and DNS servers 1 & 2 can be 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

It is a little technical! What routers do you currently have on each connection? Do you know what the IP addresses of each router are at the moment?

Ok great, this looks good!

the phones currently run on a netgear and the computer currently run on a BT 2wire router. i would need to check the ip of the routers, though i thinking i will be able to set one to 192.... 1 and the other ...2.

Do you know of any good software that will allow us to call from a number found on a web browser, because if there isn't any good software for this, the whole exercise is a little pointless.

but thanks for your help so far! it might be worth adding it to the sticky "small network setup post"

thanks again
Bradley

Not sure quite waht you mean by the web browser thing. Do you mean 'call me back'? See

No sorry,

what i mean is... lets say for example...

I'm on a webpage, and a company has a telephone number on that site, the software would recognise that is a telephone number and i could click on it, and it would get my Snom 300 to start calling, saving me the time of keying it out manually.

i hope that is a bit clearer.

thank you

We don't have that atm - but it's got the coder geeks talking.........

It may well make its way onto the development list at some point.

Skype (sorry, I'll wash my mouth out straight away) does something similar.

Uses some kind of IE plugin that mangles the HTML whenever it sees something that looks like a phone number.

Plays havoc with any HTML editing packages though, so it needs to be turn-offable!
