PostPosted: Sun Jul 15, 2007 8:36 am    Post subject: Wireless install using Motorola SB5120 and VT2142-V Reply with quote Back to top

I am new to the Vonage world and I have a scenario/questions for you all.

I use comcast cable as my internet provider and the cable modem is a Motorola SB5120. My Vonage device is a Motorola VT2142-VD modem. The internet cable runs from the wall to the 5120 and from the 5120 to the 2142 and then to my computer. I am interested in installing a wireless network in my home. I would like to install my wireless device (which I assume would replace my current SB5120) in my basement so it is all out of the way. I would have to purchase my wireless NIC cards for my computers. My computers are located two floors above the basement.

How should I connect my Vonage device to my wireless network to ensure everything works? Would my 2142 have to be replaced also to support wireless networking?

Thanks for the help.

Oops - I also forgot that if you all have any recommendations on the equipment that I should use - please feel free to list what you use that works. Also instructions that a idiot could follow would be helpful. Wink thanks again.

You would hook it up the same way as you have it now, just replace your old router with a wireless router.

I have Linksys routers the most.

I have a Linksys wireless Vonage router, just once less piece of equipment in the mix. I broadcast throughout the house without any problems.

when you say to replace my old router, I assume that you are talking about the one my internet cable is connected to right? So I would replace both my router and my Vonage router with a new wireless one like your linksys and a wireless nic in my computer right? What about the phone line? Do I need to worry about it?

Could you tell me the make and model of your Linksys router?

Thanks for the help.

You don't have to buy a wireless router with Voip. You can keep the Vonage adapter you have, just buy a wireless router. I bought the all in one, just so I wouldn't have another piece of equipment. I was running a wireless router with a motorola Vonage box.

My set up was cable internet, Linksys wireless router then the Vonage adapter. Now I just have my cable internet into my wireless router.

If you computers don't have a wireless card then you will have to get that as well, one for each computer.

I am using a Linksys WRT54GP2

Your assumption about the wireless device replacing the SB5120 modem is probable wrong. Most wireless devices for home LAN use are routers, not modems, so you need to keep the 5120. There are basically 3 ways that you can go. First, you can replace your Vonage device with a combo Vonage wireless router/adapter as Roscopco indicated. It would plug directly into your modem. Second, you can keep your existing Vonage device and plug a new wireless router into it. Third, you can plug a new wireless router into the modem and plug your existing Vonage box into it.

Personally, I would prefer the third route, provided that the new wireless router has QoS settings that allow you to specify that the Vonage box gets priority service from it. Note that regardless of the route you choose, your Vonage device ends up hard wired to equipment in your basement, so that's where your phone service with originate. That may or may not be a problem for you. There are more alternatives that get your Vonage box out of the basement, but they can get messy. Not recommended.
