OK..so I thought I'd take my Vonage with me. I brought along the router..the yellow wire , the router connection and phone line. My yellow wire plugs into my laptop AND router..right?...phone line from phone to computer..and computer to router...right?..plug in router..right?...why won't the phone work?...does phone from actual phone plug into router slot..(two slots there..) and wire from computer leads directly to router . Is my problem the phone lines? DO I not have them hooked up correctly? I've tried switching lines 1/2 on the router and still no phone. Can anyone help//thanks.

Some questions:

How are you getting your Internet connection to your laptop?
Wireless?
USB?
Ethernet?

(The best answer is Ethernet, it'll be the easiest to set up).

What phone adapter model?

From your post I think if you're plugging the phone in the *computer* phone jack, that's definitely wrong.... It should go in the same jack on the phone adapter you use at home.

Does your laptop have wireless capabilities? If not, this isn't going to work. If it does, here's how the wiring will work:

Run a cable from the Vonage router's WAN port to the ethernet (network) port on the laptop. Then plug a telephone into the Phone 1 port on the router.

Then, you'll need to power up your laptop (assuming it's using Windows 2000/XP) and do the following:

To enable Internet Connection Sharing on a network connection, follow theses steps:
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network Connections.
2. Click the Wireless Internet Connection and then under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.
3. On the Advanced tab, click to select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
4. Under Internet Connection Sharing in Home networking connection, select the connection that connects the computer that is sharing its Internet connection to the other computers on your network, probably Local Area Connection or similar.

Note that to enable Internet Connection Sharing in Windows XP, you must have administrative rights.

Full Microsoft support article on Internet Connection Sharing here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314066/en-us

This does work, as I've used it many times in hotels. The only caveat to this is that your laptop must be powered on the entire time for Vonage to work (since the laptop's doing the conversion from wireless to hardwired ethernet.) To get around this, you'd need to buy a wireless bridge or wireless router which is capable of running as a wireless client (The Linksys WRT54GL does this if you put 3rd party firmware on it.)

One phone wire only used..from the phone (in condo) to line 1 router?...no phone wire from back of computer to anywhere..right/

Hooked it up as you say..and now getting fast busy signal. I think I can figure it out from here. This is further than I have had before..thanks...

That is correct. The only phone-type wire you will use is from the telephone to the Phone 1 port on the back of the Vonage adapter. You DON'T want to connect it up the phone wire to the wall jack. This can (and often does) damage Vonage adapters when the voltage from the phone co goes into the Vonage device.
