PostPosted: Fri Jul 14, 2006 1:13 pm    Post subject: Home networking, the vonage router and a massive headache Reply with quote Back to top

Here's the deal, folks. I just instaled Vonage the other day. Today I had Verizon FiOS installed. I also live in a condo, so the cable guy couldn't run the fiberoptic cables up to where my network was because of condo association rules. So he installed the wireless router in the basement as I asked and I installed wireless adapters on my laptop and PC. However, the Vonage router (D-Link VTA-VD) is dead in the water. I can't run cables from the wireless router all the way up to the Vonage router. So I'm hoping one of you guys can help me with this.

I have my desktop with a USB wireless adapter catching internet signal from the wireless router. Next to this is a Linksys Wireless router and a Linksys 8-port switch. I can use either for this situation, I think.

What I'd like to do is route the internet through the PC's network card to either the Linksys Wireless router or the Switch where it will then route the internet to the Vonage router.

Can I even do this? How do I get it to work?

Technically it's possible, assuming you're running Windoze, you can use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). However, I really don't think you'll have great results, at least consistantly, with Vonage in that type of configuration.

Is there any way at all you could put the Vonage router in the basement? All you need is one live phone jack near the Vonage router to get yourself going.

1) I don't think the condo association can block it...but this depends on your state's laws in regards to utilities and condos. If you have to do wireless, I'd suggest going back to DSL which could use the existing copper wire in the walls.

2) It can be done through Internet Connection Sharing, 'though I'd suggest getting a Wireless Bridge instead... How far away from the basement are you? If you're more than 1-2 floors, forget it... you're going to have a very unpredictable service then.

No live phone jacks in the basement at all?

If not, and you really want to give it a shot, try this. Setup ICS on your PC (consult Microsoft.com if you don't know how), the wireless USB NIC is the outside (Internet facing) interface, your ethernet NIC is the inside. Connect your ethernet NIC to the WAN interface of the Vonage router, connect the phone (or jack) to the phone port on the router and give it a whirl.

*Note: TPA is right about the wireless bridge being better than ICS, but before you spend the cash on one, try ICS since it's free.

What type of Linksys wireless router do you have? You may be able to convert it to a wireless bridge using free 3rd party firmware.

I like this option... if you're a little bit handy, you can probably find the other end of that phone wire in the basement... Then you could move the Vonage adapter to the basement and connect it up to your condo's wiring and the phones should work like they always did... Total cost: Under $5 and about 30 mins of tracing out wires. Just make sure you disconnect the phone wiring from the phone co first. Actually, if you have FIOS, they've probably gone through the trouble of this for you and you'll find your condo's phone wiring going to the FIOS box.
