Hello,

I have Vonage and one laptop. I would like to go completely wireless. Is there a router (or two if necessary) that will allow me to access the internet wirelessly and my Vonage wirelessly?

Thanks.

I have my linksys RTP300 adapter plugged into a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router, and use a motorola 5.8 Ghz cordless. The base station is plugged into the RTP300. Very few wires involved ...
Is that what you are looking for? Not sure what you mean by accessing "vonage wirelessly".

Why can't you use a wireless router and a wireless phone?

WRT54GL plus aftermarket firmware can make the WRT54GL a "wireless client" if you have a Wireless ISP (WISP).

From the WRT54GL, you'd then run network cables to the laptop and the Vonage router, or you could get a second WRT54GL to serve as a local Wireless access point, and a wireless phone to use as your telephone.

What I mean by completely wireless is that I would like to have my laptop unwired from both my internet router and my Vonage modem. I want to be able to use my laptop anywhere in the house and still be able to get internet access and use my Vonage service. Is this possible?

Absolutely, if I understand your request.

Just get a standard issue Wireless router. Plug your Vonage device into a port on the router.


MODEM -> (WAN Port) on Wireless Router (example: Linksys WRT54GL).

Wireless Router (LAN Port) -> (Internet/WAN Port) on Vonage device


Wireless Router (Wireless Connection) -> (Wireless Connection) on Laptop.

Thanks for your reply. This is very helpful.

In your configuration, won't I still have to have my laptop connected to the Vonage modem?

WAN --> wireless router --> Vonage modem --> PC

Can I set it up as follows?:

WAN --> Vonage modem --> wireless router --> wireless connection to pc

Also, do you think an Apple Airport Express would work with this setup?

Thanks again.

I'm sorry, that second setup was wrong. I meant:

WAN --> primary router --> Vonage modem --> wireless router --> wireless connection to pc.

I've used two different wireless setups successfully. The first one works best because I can access the Vonage router's internal settings directly from my computer. It goes like this:

Internet > RTP31P2 Internet port
RTP31P2 LAN port > Airport Extreme Base Station WAN port

There is also a laser printer and an ink jet printer connected to the LAN port and the USB port on the Airport Extreme. Two G5 iMacs have wireless access to the internet and can use both printers. I can also get to the internal web server on the RTP31P2 directly from my iMac.

The drawback to this setup is that the RTP31P2 must be within ethernet-cable length of the Airport Extreme (which can be pretty long, if you don't mind an ugly wire running around your house). Also, your phone would have to be near the RTP31P2 (except, of course, if you don't mind having ugly phone wires running around your house). If your phone supports multiple handsets, put the phone's main base station near the RTP31P2 and put one of the other phones where it's convenient to use. This is the setup I am using right now.

The second setup is more flexible in terms of locating the various equipment, but you need to connect a cable to the RTP31P2 to access its settings web pages. It goes like this:

Internet > Airport Extreme Base Station WAN port
Airport Express Ethernet port > RTP31P2 Internet port

Set up the Airport Express to "join an existing network" (i.e. your Airport Extreme Base Station), and to "share its internet connection" (but don't allow wireless clients to join). This way, you can put the RTP31P2 anywhere you can plug in the Airport Express.

This setup has worked very well, but I changed to the first setup because I thought that I had to change some settings on the RTP31P2. It turned out to be one of the recent Vonage service blackouts, but it took a while to convince myself that I hadn't screwed anything up. Also, I think that the first setup will manage QoS better since all network traffic goes through the RTP31P2.

Good luck, and I hope this helped!

That should work fine.
