Hey all...

I have an interesting setup here at the house and need some help in getting things going...

First of all, I rent the bottom 1/2 of a house from a lady upstairs, and SHE has Cable Internet and a Wireless Router (that is in HER living space) and I get internet access by hopping on her wireless network (Yes, I am on her network with her permission, its part of the deal renting this space =)

Here is a basic setup of my home network...

Upstairs:

Cable Modem > Wireless Router (Belkin 802.11g)

Downstairs (where I live):

Desktop (Wireless on the net)
Laptop (Wireless on the net)
Misc devices

Ok... Here is what I have tried, but failed (and will be willing to work through if I can get some help...)

Option 1

Desktop system has a Linksys 802.11G Wireless PCI card as well as a built in 10/100 ethernet card.

What I tried was to bridge the ehternet and wireless together, so I could plug in the Vonage Router's Internet Port to the Ethernet Port on the Desktop (using a Corss-Over Cable) to get the router on the internet and get phone service.

Problem:

When I do this, I get a Windows System Error stating that there are multiple devices on the network with the same IP Address. I have not been able to figure this one out... >.<

Option 2 that I would LOVE to use...

Bridge the Wireless Router Vonage Router to the Router upstairs (Wirelessly).

If you know how I can accomplish this, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

try this set possibly,

this shows that the wireless rtr in the upstairs and ur rtr has the same ip address bcoz of which u get an ipconflict.
so, first u disable the wireless card(PCI) in ur laptop just for few minutes....
connect ur laptop to ethernet port on ur router alone..also remember that ur rtr should not be connected to any other router or cable modem, check whether u hav only the power light & ethernet light alone in ur rtr...
check whether u get the ip address of ur rtr after that log on to the router page...... in the set up page of ur router change the local ip address as 192.168.20.1 & save the settings.....
just wait for atleast 10 mins....after that check whether u get the new ip address .........
now connect ur router's internet port to one of the ethernet port of the wireless rouetr in upstairs .......just check wheteher u r able to go online...........

Glad you got it working. Of course, your computer will need to stay on for you to have phone service. Another option would be to get a wireless access point to connect to the landlady's wireless. Then plug the Vonage unit into that.

Honestly, I would not have an issue putting the Vonage router upstairs, but the phone has to be plugged into the router in order for it to work, soooooo... Unless I am willing to pull cable (I'm sure she would let me), thing is, I would rather not put that kinda burdon on her.

All in all, my computer runs pretty much 100% of the time since I am on it more often than not...

For now, this will work, but in the future, when I have another place with my own service, I will be glad that I have the Wireless Vonage Router... ^_^

Thanks all!

Here's another suggestion... pick up one of those wireless bridges like the Linksys WET54G. It converts a wired-Ethernet device to Wireless-G network connectivity. These are often marketed for wireless gaming so you can connect an XBOX or PS2 to a wireless network.

You could pick on of these up and plug a Vonage phone adapter or a Vonage router into it.

In theory, it should work. Smile

Yet another option...

Get a cordless phone. Plug the WRTP54G into the router upstairs, plug in the base to the cordless phone upstair...

Then you'd need to find a way to recharge the cordless phone -- some have remote bases...

But since it's working...we know what Murphy says...don't fix it!

Everyone has been so helpful and I am thankful. Its working as of now...

I have noticed an issue with this setup (so others can be aware when attempting to do it this way) is that during phone conversations, there will be time of 2-3 seconds of the person on the other end (and will assume myself also) are not able to hear eachother.

More annoying than anything.

Ya know, I remember a while back that there was a device that you pluggged into an RJ-45 port to make something wireless (I remember reading something about this for PS2 network adapters)... Nothing fancy, just a little jobbie that had a cord for RJ-45 on one end, and a wireless antenna on the other and for the life of me am not able to find anything on it now. This wouls be perfect, if it was not software driven that is...

You could always pickup a powerline network adaptor. They are easy to setup and work remarkably well. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1115416876218&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper
