PostPosted: Thu Apr 22, 2004 1:39 pm    Post subject: Need help DSL Modem with USB connections only - thoughts? Reply with quote Back to top

Hello All,

I appreciate if someone can help me plot a solution to my problem. I am travelling abroad and have brought my Vonage Motorolla VT1005 voice terminal with me.

I have DSL service set up here. However I can't get it to work due to the DSL Modem which only has USB sockets and connections The DSL Modem Connection works fine – its providing internet connectivity service 100% and does not have any service or quality issues. I have a Lucent 20A Dial Up PPP (the model is CELLpipe modem).


Problem: The problem is the Lucent Modem has a UBS connection and therefore cannot connect directly to the Motorolla Voice Terminal (i.e., the Vonage device). The vonage/motorolla device has only RJ45 (Ethernet) sockets.

So I have tried an alternative solution which I know has worked for some folks. My DSL Modem -->> Laptop (XP) --->> Vonage Motorala VT1005 -->> Phone.

To connect to the Laptop and the Vonage device, I have a crossover RJ45 cable. However I just can't get it to work.

Right now I have the Local Area Connection is Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection it alternates between getting connected and being disconnected until after a extended period of time it claims to be completely disconnected.

I also have 1394 Connection as enabled. I also have an Network Bridge (MAC Bridge Miniport). I have alternatively turned them on and off (all possible combinations) with no impact to getting it connected fullftime. Should I delete them or turn them off?


I have tried every possible combination of things. Can anyone out there please suggest a solution for me?

Many many thanks

Sorry forgot to add three critical things to the note:
1) The Motorola VT1005 was working in the US and so I know its not an issue with the device itself.
2) The greenlight on top of the box blinks twice and then stops for a sec and then keeps blinking.
3) I can't get to 192.168.102.1 from the web browser.

Thanks

Assuming the laptop is connecting to the internet with the USB modem, you should have the MTA's WAN port connected to the laptop not the PC port. Also, you'll have to temporarily put the laptop on the PC port to access the MTA's configuration page and give it a static IP on the laptop's net since I doubt you are running a DHCP server.

So if the laptop's ethernet adapter is at 10.1.1.5, for example, you need to set the MTA's to 10.1.1.20 or something else unused.

Thanks for your suggestion. Two quick questions which I would appreciate a response to:
1) How do I access MTA's configuration page?
2) How do I know what the ethernet adapter's static IP is.

Thanks

To get to the configuration page, browse to 192.168.102.1 while connected to the PC port. If you have messed up the configuration, you may have to manually set your IP on the laptop. Search for netmask on this forum for directions.

Determining your IP address depends on your OS. Try ipconfig from a prompt or get the connection's TCP/IP properties.

Just a thought, and I am not at all sure this will work but it sounds simpler than what you are trying to do. Have you considered getting a USB -> Ethernet adapter and plugging the USB end into the DSL modem? This should allow you to connect the ATA to the Modem via ethernet and then place your laptop behind the ATA. The USB -> EThernet adapters are pretty cheap so this may save you some headaches. Good luck.

I don't think that would work. The modem is a USB device and needs to talk to a USB host. The network adapter is also a USB device and needs to talk to a host.

Of course, you could use a USB/eth adapter to give the laptop an ethernet port and proceed as I mentioned before, but I doubt the modem would accept a USB/eth adapter since they both want to plug into a USB host.

There is a new USB spec that allows devices to talk to each other via USB, but I doubt seriously any of this equipment implements this today.
