PostPosted: Wed Feb 21, 2007 12:04 am    Post subject: Wireless network? Reply with quote Back to top

i bought a wireless router thinking i could replace the wired router that came w/my Vonage - but didn't realize that it didn't have a phone jack...

are there wireless routers out there with phone jacks to replace the old lynksys that i have now?

is there a way to make the wireless router i did buy - to work? i don't know if i can return it or not now that i've opened the package...

i've seen some of the prior links on wireless inquiries and it seemed difficult to comprehend for me so if someone can spell this out clearly for me - i'd be forever grateful!

thanks!
Rachel

Hi Rachel,

No need to worry.as suggested by lot of others in the forum Vonage supplied w/l routers are not so great by performance.so whatever may be your w/l router,connect the WAN/Internet port of the w/l router to the LAN/Ethernet port of your Vonage router.reboot the whole network.It should work fine.It'll be pritty easy to help you out if you can provide us with the model numbers of all the devices that you have.

thanks for your post -
i am at work and will post back later with the information on the routers and you can tell me if they will work together and specifically how to do it ... i knew enough to hook it up to begin with but once it gets a tiny bit more complicated - i'm a little lost....

when you say w/l router - i don't know which one you are refering to....

okay - i'll be back later - thank you in advance for your assistance.

Rachel

Rachel,

Absolutely, you can make the wireless router work with your network. The reason why the question was asked about make and model# of your wireless router was to gauge the quality of your wireless router as well as its ability to handle the traffic and assign the traffic appropriate priority (this is called QoS) so that your phone conversation will take priority over your computer requests.

Depending on the quality, one of two things will happen. If it is a robust wireless router, you will want to put it immediately after your modem and then connect the Vonage adapter to one of the ports in your wireless router. This will require some configuration of the wireless router.

If the wireless router is not very robust, then you will want to keep the current setup and connect the wireless router after your Vonage adapter.

This will require some more steps to configure your wireless router so that it won't interfere with your Vonage adapter.

So let us know what the make and model# of your wireless router is so that we can see where it should be in your network.

Also give us the Vonage router model #.

again, many many thanks for the offers to assist
sounds like i will need much help configuring...
as well as any advice you can give on networking...

yesterday when i connected the wireless router - before realizing it didn't have a phone adapter - whatever i did made it unavailable to the laptop - which was the main reason for purchasing the thing! I'm sure i enabled some sort of lock on it so others couldn't access it but i didn't know how to make it accessible to my own laptop...

ugh

regardless - i'll be back with more details soon.

I just recently bought a new wireless router for the house and replaced the RTP300 router as the "main" router. Like others have suggested, I just connected the WAN port of the Vonage router to one of the 4 ports of the new wireless router. However, I had to do a "hard reset" of the Vonage router for it acquire a phone connection. To do that, just use a paperclip or ballpoint pen and press the button in the back called "reset" for a few seconds. You'll see all the lights flash and then after a few seconds (30-35) you'll see that magical light turn on that indicates you have a phone line. I haven't touched the Vonage router since then... (about 25 days now). Good luck!

okay - the Vonage router that i have is the linksys rt31p2
and the wireless router that i bought is a netgear wgr614

if i connect them another way from the netgear instruction - do i not load the netgear CD that came with the router?

how do i set it up so it only sees my laptop and is not open to other connections outside my home?

finally, does anyone know how to set up a network so the computers can share info?


thanks again!
Rachel
