PostPosted: Mon Apr 30, 2007 12:49 pm    Post subject: Hotel use of Starcom F1000 Reply with quote Back to top

Many times while travelling, hotels require you to sign in using a wired or wireless connection. The sign in can be a simple password that the front desk gives you, or a longer one such as your name and room number. Once this is established you have either a wired or wireless connection for your laptop, either free or charged to your room depending how the hotel has it configured.

I travelled extensively the last two weeks, and was not able to have the Starcom F1000 connect with any wifi spot, even the ones that were free, as many required some sort of access code.

Take a look at D-Link DWL-G730AP and let me know if this will solve the problem. I can establish the internet through the hotel, and will the F1000 connect to this AP without having to go through the passwords again?

The F1000 works fine with my home network.

Thanks.

Check out the Linksys travel router WTR54GS. It should do what you need. Basically, it connects to the hotel's Wi-Fi, you enter in the access codes, etc., that the hotel requires via your laptop, and then you can use the Vonage WiFi phone to connect to the travel router, instead of to the hotel wifi.

Ok, thanks. Have you tried it using it this way or know anyone that has used it this way with success?

I have not, though I have used the Linksys travel router to do basically the same thing with other types of devices. For example, I've used it to connect more than one laptop to the same hotel wifi network, and it worked for that, so I would presume it would work just as well for the Vonage wifi phone.

The Linksys travel router is a slick little box. Some people have complained that it overheats, but I ran it in a hotel 24/7 for almost a week without any problems. The range is more than adequate for your typical hotel room -- I got "excellent" range throughout my room.

I have not tried the Linksys, but I can say that the Netgear WGR101 travel router works well. In cases where the hotel has a wired connection, I have connected the router to the hotel, then registered using the PC. After that, the router is registered and the phone is happy linked to it. This has the added advantage of not requiring the PC to be on the desk - or where ever the ethernet jack happens to be - but it can move around the room.

I have also used in in combination with the PC's existing WiFi to use Internet Connection Sharing. In that case, the PC links to the hotel and the phone to the Netgear, connected to the PC's wired ethernet jack.

I will add that before I got the Netgear I tried the D-Link 730. It did not work particularly well for anything at all (though it is very small and looks good). I expect that the Linksys would work as well as the Netgear based on other Linksys products, but I would recommend against the D-link travel router.

I have the Linksys travel router and have used it extensively in Europe and the Middle East. It works very well. You have to connect it to the hotel wi-fi or ethernet and sign on with your laptop (connected to the ethernet port). Then I put the Vonage unit in the ethernet port and run the laptop on wi-fi from the router. Sometimes I plug the hotel phone into the Vonage unit and sometimes I travel with a small phone (I've used a wired phone and also a small wireless unit I have).

Bertk,

Do you have to sign on with you laptp connected to the ethernet port, or can you sign on using wireless to the hotel's connection. Suppose they only have wireless in the room?

I did get that to work at a hotel in Beirut. If I recall properly, I signed on with the laptop using wi-fi and registered the account (I had to enter a password the front desk gave me), then I connected the laptop to the router and cloned the laptop MAC address to the router (the hotel systems work by registering the MAC address).

This was about a year ago and my recollection is not clear.

The other thing I may have done is to connect the laptop via ethernet to the router and then had the router connect to the hotel wi-fi.

In any event it worked and I used it with no problems for several days.
