I am interested in buying a new cordless phone system for my place. One with the base and a few handsets. I have a lynksys wireless G router and was wondering what people recommended me to use.

I was looking at the ATT 5830
VTECH 5831 and the Uniden 8865-2

Any thoughts?

Any phone should work, 2.4 or 5.8 GHz. Some people say 2.4 GHz phones interfere with wireless networks, but you can always change the channel on the wireless router. I used temporarily a less than $20 2.4 GHz phone from Wal-Mart that even has a message indicator that lights up when I have voice mail in Vonage. It never interfered with my wireless network. My Siemes 2420 2.4 GHz system also works fine and it is like the system you want; a base with wireless handsets. If you are married, just buy the one your wife likes the most. Smile

PostPosted: Sun May 15, 2005 12:43 am    Post subject: Where did you purchase your router?? Reply with quote Back to top

Right before signing up for Vonage, I converted my networking for my home setup to a wireless one. Since I am technologically challenged, I asked customer service if everything they were sending me would work with my system. They told me it would, but not until I received everything did I realize that I would need a wireless router in order for me to keep everything wireless. I went to Best Buy yesterday to buy one and it would cost me 142.39 with tax (there is a $50 rebate) but I was wondering if there was somewhere or some other brand besides Lynksys that I could use that others have had good results with.

Try Microsoft Wireless, it was under $80 which included a notebook card.

To TechChallenged,

The Vonage rep didn't lie to you. Their router works with your wireless network. It just depends on where you want to connect the Vonage router.

You can plug it in directly to a wired port on your existing wireless router. You only need to plug your phone into the Vonage router, nothing else needs to change.

I'm not sure what router you would have purchased at Best Buy, that would make a difference.

Ditto Orlando!

Not sure why you needed another router if you already had wireless b4 switching to Vonage. I had a wireless setup b4 making the plunge a couple of weeks ago and everything works quite well.

modem---->RT---->Belkin 54G/wireless router

The Belkin feeds off one of the RT's ethernet ports.

The only problem I've had in the past two weeks was a power outage for a few minutes causing me to reset the RT but voila. Got a UPS backup Saturday.

PostPosted: Mon May 16, 2005 5:54 pm    Post subject: Still really confused.... Reply with quote Back to top

As my name implies, I really am technologically challenged. I am aware that the Linksys router that was shipped to me would work with my wireless network, but the thing I am most confused about is the fact that I would only be confined to the area where the Linksys router is when I wanted to use my laptop. The whole purpose of going wireless was so I could have the freedom to move about with my laptop.

Correct me if I am wrong, but are you telling me that I would still be able to hook up everything with the Vonage issued Linksys router and still be in another part of the house on my laptop and still be able to make phone calls with everything hooked up properly?

When I called customer service (once I got the Vonage issued router) for assistance in connecting everything, they did in fact tell me that their router would work, but I would be confined to the area of the router (because of the cord), and if I wanted the freedom to move about, I would have to purchase a wireless router........

I am just confused and hope someone can help.

From what you say, you have set your network up so that you can use your laptop wirelessly, but you do not state how you have managed this.

This can be done in many ways, including, but not limited to:

1: Broadband modem connected to wireless router which inturn is connected to all devices requiring network attention (either wired or wirelessly)

2: Broadband modem connected to PC which has a 802.11a/b or g adapter (either PCI board, USB adapter or Bridge connected to 2nd network interface), with the laptop setup as an "Ad-Hoc" connection.

If your setup is like No.1, then all that you would have to do, is position your Vonage router between the modem and the wireless router, and after altering or original router to not handle the login details and setting up the Vonage router to login to your net service (if PPPoE) you shouldn't have any problems with the setup.

If your setup is like No 2, then all you need to do is connect the Vonage router inbetween the PC & the Modem, then configure the router to login to your internet service.

Note if your internet service is cable or verizon DSL (& others that use DHCP instead of PPPoE) then you will need to call your ISP's customer support to inform them that you are using a new device to handle the login process and provide them with the Vonage router's MAC address.

PostPosted: Mon May 16, 2005 7:24 pm    Post subject: Details of my setup Reply with quote Back to top

The setup I have is similar to #1 - the cord runs from my cable modem (from the ethernet jack) to the my Dell wireless router (to the internet jack). There is a cord in my Dell Wireless router in a LAN jack (there are 3 LAN jacks) but it goes to nothing.

Are you saying that I take the cord from the internet/ethernet jack from my cable modem or from the Dell wireless router and connect it to the "internet" jack in my Linksys router? Which cord from where goes into one of the 3 "ethernet" jacks on the Linksys router? and I know to take the phone cord from the wall jack to jack on the Linksys router. In addition to that, when I call my ISP, what is it that I am asking them to do? I know these all sound like really stupid questions, but again, it's just that when I call tech support, I would probably spend my entire evening on the phone with them and that's not what I want.

Thanks again!
