PostPosted: Wed Aug 02, 2006 2:13 pm    Post subject: Wired-wireless hookup Reply with quote Back to top

I've never done any networking before so would appreciate some advice. I bought a second computer and want to use my cable broadband service which Vonage also uses as the internet connection for it. The best solution for me would be a wireless connection. Currently I have a Linksys RTP300 router to use Vonage and my main computer and no other devices using the connection.

My question is, what would be the best/simplest way for me to gain wireless internet on the second pc and how do I hook it up?

Do I just get a wireless router and hook it up so it's internet-wireless router-rtp300 or is it the opposite?

Reading a bit here I saw stuff about firmware and such. Do I need to download new software for them to work together?

Should I just buy a WRTP54G and not use a multi-router setup at all? It seems like it would be cheaper to buy a wireless router as an add-on rather than the WRTP54G because I'm already a Vonage user and wouldn't qualify for the rebate.

I need specific information on the hookup, please. Or links to instructions. I found some things but none of it was exactly what I needed and as a total novice I need specifics.

Thanks.

You would need to purchase a "wireless" router. The Linksys WRT54GL is a very popular choice among users on this forum. The aftermarket firmware for this router will also provide you with lots of other features and options that will improve the QoS.

Basically your hook-up would be cable modem>WRT54GL>RTP300. The link provided will give you an illustration on how it should be set up. In the illustration, replace the WRTP54G with your RTP300 and the existing router with the WRT54GL.

The only firmware that you would need to download and install is the "optional at your discretion" aftermarket firmware for the WRT54GL. This is the firmware that provides more features for the WRT54GL. "Natehoy" was kind enough to provide some links for setting up the WRT54GL with the RTP300 and the firmware link.

The WRTP54G is basically the wireless version of the RTP300. So the answer to your question is No. The WRT54GL is a better option for you.

I hope this helps.
