PostPosted: Tue Jan 09, 2007 7:35 pm    Post subject: Can't be online and make a call! Reply with quote Back to top

I'm having a serious problem and cannot figure it out. I have a Motorola SB5120 cable modem and just purchased the Linksys Pap2 to set up Vonage. I have my Linksys Ethernet into my cable modem and had to switch my modem to a usb connection to the computer. My problem is that when my phone is plugged into the cable modem I can't get online. It says I'm not connected. But as soon as I unplug the phome adapter ethernet (and restart the computer) I can get online but I can't make any calls. I've run all the tests to check the modem and the Vonage test everything works just not together. If anyone could help, that would be great. Thanks in advance!!!

What you need is a switch (Liksys, D-Link, etc) to compliment your modem and PAP2. Your PAP2 requires it's own IP address, as does your PC.

The way this should be setup is this:
Coax cable from cable company to SB5120
Ethernet cable from SB5120 to Switch (WAN/Internet port)
Ethernet cable from PAP2 to Switch (Enet Port)
Ethernet cable from PC to Switch (Enet Port)

The switch will assign IP addresses to the PC and the phone adapter, thus allowing the modem to work with both. This is how mine is set up, and I believe is the only way it will work. Both the modem and the PAP2 only have 1 ethernet port, and the modem will only work with USB -OR- Ethernet, but not both.

A hub will not work as it is not capable of providing DHCP or static addresses, but a switch will.

This is one of those "gotchas" that you're not told about, but are expected to know if you want Vonage to work.

A switch will not work either. A switch does not do any DHCP or routing of packets at all, it is just a "smart hub" that has multiple broadcast domains based on MAC addresses. What you need is a router. A router is the only thing that will assign IP addresses and route traffic from your modem to both your PC and Vonage Adapter.

Yes - You would need a router, not a switch or hub. Each device on your network much have its own address.

this will be your set up!!!

ok???? you dont have to configure anything on your pc since a router has dhcp that gives ip addresses to your pc and Vonage device...!!!
