Hello everyone!

I need help ! Smile

Just got a new laptop with wirless ability.

So, I figured I needed a wireless router to hook up to my home pc so I can surf anywhere in my home...

I currently have Vonage phone service and the linksys Voip router they gave me...

The wireless router I purchased is a D-Link WBR-1310
I ran their set up CD and installed it as instructed but then lost my internet connection.

obviously this router setup is not smart enough to realize I have the Vonage router installed already and need to keep it in there so i dont lose phone service...

How do I setup this wireless router without disrupting my Vonage service????

Thanks!!!

Been trying to connect things differently... no luck.

I am NOT a technical person, so this has been interesting to say the least Smile

Any help out there?

Any tutorials someone can point me to?

Thanks!

Your D-Link router should be configured out of the box for DHCP connection to the Internet. Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the open ports on the back of your Vonage router. Plug the other end into the WAN or INTERNET port on your wireless router. That should be all you need to get going. If this still doesn't give you Internet, use the router software to access and configure the router's Internet connection settings. You don't need any domain or password information. Just make sure it's set to connect with DHCP and you should be good to go.

All that said, I've never had a piece of D-Link gear that I liked, and once had a D-Link router with a range of about 18 inches. If you can't get it going, do yourself a favor & return it. Get a NetGear for about the same price, and less grief!

I posted a response to a similar question a few day ago.

Basically, I wouldn't recommend two routers daisy chained. You really want to use the new router as a wireless access point / switch as opposed to a router. I'm not familiar with DLink, but with a Linksys you would set the router to be a "gateway". Also turn off DHCP... the Vonage router is already your DHCP server (unless you changed that).

If you need more help, let me know.

I checked out the product manual for your router. There just happens to be a section devoted to connecting to another router and using the D-Link as a switch. If you have the manual, look at page 12. If not, you can download the manual here.

Pay close attention to step #5. You will need to put the D-Link on the same subnet as the Vonage router. What router did Vonage give you? If its the Linksys, it probably has an address of 192.168.15.1. If so, you could give the D-Link an address of 192.168.15.2. From then on, in order to administor the D-Link, you would enter 192.168.15.2 into your web browser.

I got to step 5 entered in 192.168.15.2. for "router settings" and then it said my IP was invalid...

My d-link wireless router is 192.168.0.1.
I entered in 192.168.15.2.

there is a 0 instead of a 15??? in the ip address.

Does this mean my router is not compatable with the Vonage linksys router???

May I suggest that you enter an ip address like 192.168.15.150 since that's outside the range of ip addresses given out by your Vonage router. This way, it remains in the same subnet but outside the given range and hence less likely to cause any problems.

This should solve your issue.

Even though my wirless router IP is 192.168.0.1
and my Vonage IP is 192.168.15.1

This discrepency is'nt what is causing the error???

Thanks, will try what you suggested.

The ip address 192.168.0.1 is the standard ip address for a router. But b/c your Vonage router has an ip address of 192.168.15.1, the two routers are not on the same subnet. As a result, if you plug in your computer into the Vonage router and type in 192.168.0.1, it will not be able to access the dlink wireless router. So in order for you to be able to access both routers without having to plug and unplug your computer ethernet cable, it is best to have them all on the same subnet by subnet I mean 192.168.15.xxx where xxx stands for the last 3 digits.

So if you have your Vonage router as 192.168.15.1, then you can assign your dlink router as 192.168.15.150. Then all your computers will have a number inbetween say 192.168.15.101 etc...

This way, all the computers and routers can see each other without issues.

hope this helps.
