Hi,

I want to use Vonage with Wifi. I found the best way to do it by not having to purchase costly Linksys or other brand wireless bridge.

I found the details on the following link but I would like to know which crossover cable should I buy.

http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic2518.html

1) Belkin Category 6 Networking Cable (A3L980V07S) - Circuit City

2) Belkin CAT-5e UTP Crossover Cable, Yellow, 3 feet, RJ-45 Male to RJ-45 MaleMfg Part #: A3X126-03-YLW-M - CompUSA

I will appreciate if someone can help.

Thanks
Anu

I'm not convinced you need a cross-over cable. Most routers have an "uplink" port, which is automatically crossed over without the need for a special cable. Besides which, most newer PC ethernet chipsets have automatic RX/TX line detection, and can handle the crossover automatically.

However, if you've convinced yourself you need a crossover cable to make this work, both of the cables you listed are equivalent for this application. Cat6 cable has slightly more shielding than Cat5e, but both are rated for handling 1000Mb/s Ethernet, which is probably faster than what your router can handle anyhow.

HTH!

Hello Yaz,

I know there is another way for this by Internet Connection Sharing. Any more help will be nice.

I found the following info by someone to do it. But 2 things I am not clear here :
1) Where to connect the ethernet cable first time & then second time after setting the RT31P2?
2) How to change the IP address for the RT31P2?

____________________________________________________

I successfully did that. I have computer with a wireless card and normal ethernet card. I connect to internet using the wireless card and use Windows ICS to share that internet connection. Then I connected my computer network card to RT31P2 as a client to that machine (not using a crossover cable, not as a internet server to RT31P2). I set RT31P2 to have 192.168.0.254 ip address and 192.168.0.1 as gateway and dns server (192.168.0.1 would be the ip address of my wired network card when I use windows ICS). Then I connect my computer to RT31P2 as a internet server and since internet connection is shared on the computer, RT31P2 will start getting the internet connection through my computer.

Hopefully someone will be able to jump in with some more specifics to help you out. I'm not a Windows user at all, so I can't help you with the software configuration aspects (for the record, all of the machines on my network are currently running Mac OS X or Debian Linux, and in a previous life I was an OS/2 developer at IBM, and have worked with at least a dozen different types of Unix). I've also worked with all sorts of different types of networks, but haven't had a Windows machine since 1993. I like to try to help, but know my limitations.

Based on the directions given, the first time you want to connect it from the PC's ethernet port to one of the numbered ports on the back of your router (i.e.: one of the ones you would be plugging your PC into in a normal networking situation). After you've configured the router (i.e.: the "second time") you want to plug from your PC into the WAN port on your router.

In essence, you are making your PC emulate an ISP that your router will then use to connect to the Internet.

I haven't used this specific router, however I have several other Linksys routers, and the procedure is generally pretty close between them. You need to use your web browser to browse http://192.168.1.1, give it your administrative password (if you haven't set one, check your users manual for the default password), and then go into the Basic Setup. Instead of using "Obtain an IP Automatically", switch to "Static IP", and specify the address and gateway yourself.

This should get you started -- if you hit a wall, let me know and I'll see what I can suggest.

Hello Yaz,

I cannot access this webpage http://192.168.1.1

It gives me error "Connection Failed". The system returned "Connection Refused"

Thanks
