Can you help? - Livebox with Netgear router

  empeebee 12:57 10 Aug 2007


A colleague has just got a Livebox which he wants to use to get cheap phone calls. Currently, he has a Netgear DG834 router which I'd like to leave in place as it handles a vpn tunnel to another organisation, DHCP and provides a good firewall. The VPN tunnel is the critical bit.

So, I'd like to connect both boxes, with the Livebox just providing the telephone service. Orange say that I can fit two boxes but won't tell me how. My thoughts are that perhaps I can plug the Livebox into the Netgear router, disable the Internet logon on the Livebox and just enable the telephone service in the config. If there's someone out there who knows about these Liveboxes and could give me some guidance, I would appreciate it enormously.
