PostPosted: Sun Jul 16, 2006 5:02 pm    Post subject: Make Vonage adapter wireless Reply with quote Back to top

My parents are moving to a new house and they are interested in getting Vonage.

We'll be getting a Motorola SB5120 cable modem, a Linksys WRTSL54G wireless router (for the QoS), and probably the Motorola VT2442 Vonage adpater. We will probably get one of those phones with one base and like 10 expandable handsets.

The cable modem and the router will probably be in my room with the computer (upstairs bedroom), but we would probably want the phone base with the answering machine to be in the kitchen. It would be easiset to keep the Vonage router with the rest of the equipment, but then we would have to run phone cable all the way from my room to the kitchen. Not an easy task and probably not the best looking solution either.

I was wondering if there was a way to make the Vonage router wireless... That way we could probably put it in the kitchen somewhere in a cabinet near the phone base. I was thinking maybe something like the Microsoft wireless XBOX adapter...

Do you not have phone lines already installed in the house? That would be the best way.

Yes its possible to make the adapter wireless. You can use a wireless bridge, a game adapter, or a router with extra firmware on it.

We have phone lines in the house, but aren't those pretty much useless if we have Vonage? Don't all the phones have to connect back to the Vonage adapter?

If you can disconnect the phone company's wire at the point where it enters the house (usually there's a grey box with a modular RJ11-type connector inside) you can safely connect the Vonage box to the closest phone jack and every phone jack in the house becomes a Vonage jack. Read the "hard wiring" section of this forum.

Does anyone know if the Linksys WBP54G work with the Motorola VT2442?

I couldn't find a lot of info on it, but I did find that the built-in power adapter will NOT work with the VT2442 - it puts out 5v, the VT2442 takes 12v.

I can't figure out why its only $30 dollars, while the game adapters are $85. They both support wireless G, but the WBP54G also supports POE - anybody know why the price is so different?

I just checked out the hard wiring thing and that doesn't look too bad. I guess I fit under the people who believe the common misconception that the network interface box would have to connect directly to the Vonage adapter. I will try that. That's pretty cool.

Just be very sure that the landline is definitely disconnected from the house wiring before plugging the Vonage box into a jack. If you do that, all should be well. (An alarm complicates things. If you have one, look at the sticky post in the alarm, fax, tivo forum.)
