PostPosted: Thu Aug 09, 2007 8:12 am    Post subject: best configuration setup with FiOS actiontec router/modem Reply with quote Back to top

I have Verizon FiOS broadband service, and really like it. I would like to get Vonage, and have noticed that all Vonage adapters are also routers. I mentioned this before but would like a more clarified answer.

What is the best configuration, and best model of Vonage adapter to use? I only want and need a single Voip line, so the "cheapo" Motorola adapter is probably just fine.

My FiOS service come to me via an Actiontec modem/router combo with built-in wireless network capability. I have a main PC plugged right into one of the LAN ports on the Actiontec, and a second PC wirelessly networked to the Actiontec.

I see no need to complicate my network, or create a second network with the router that is built into every adapter Vonage appears to offer. Would it work to just plug the WAN end of the Vonage adapter into one of the LAN ports on the Actiontec? Does a PC need to be connected into one of the LAN ports of the Vonage adapter in order for it to work properly? Or can I just keep my current setup, plug the adapter into my Actiontec, and off I go?

How do I know if I have a "static IP?"

I can find my IP address, that's about as far as I can go. I hear static IP's can cause problems...but I don't know enough about that stuff to know if A-I have a static IP and B-how to solve it if I do...

1. Buy whatever is free after rebates. You don't care if it is a Vonage device only, a router, or a coffee maker, as long as it has phone ports.

2. Plug a computer TEMPORARILY into A LAN port on the Vonage router and turn off the wireless access point. You can also, optionally, turn on "remote administration" so you can log into the device from your network.

3. Unplug the computer from the Vonage device, and plug it back into your main network. The Vonage device should then have a cable from a LAN port on your regular router into its WAN/Internet port, a power cable, and a phone cable (or two if you have two lines), and nothing else.

Congratulations, you've just turned your Vonage all-in-one into a plain simple Vonage adapter.

You can also check retail stores for a small device called a PAP2. I have one that I use for non-Vonage Voip, and it is very small, and features one LAN port, two PHONE ports, and a place for the power cable. And that's it... I think they are still available - at least I saw one at Best Buy about 3 months or so ago when I went in.

Shouldn't matter. As long as your primary router is handing out DHCP addresses (also known as "automatically assigned addresses") on your network - it will assign one to the Vonage device and you should be good to go!

Well, I know that when I set up the wireless connection on the other PC, all I had to do was get the number off the side of the Actiontec router and was good to go, so I'd assume it does what you say.

RE #2 - would it work to go to the other PC that is connected wirelessly and disable the wireless connection? Or do I have to totally remove it? I know VERY LITTLE about networking. In fact, I'm not sure if I'm "networked" per se, as no files are shared between my two PC's, just the internet connection itself. I guess that's still a network, but that shows how much (little) I know.

It's funny - I could build a high end, perfectly functional PC in 2 hours, but I'm clueless about networking.

If you're not sharing files between networks, then you really don't care if all of your computers are on the same LAN (network). So some of your computers could be behind one router and some could be behind two, and they'd ALL have access to the Internet without any problems.

If you are not using wireless on a router that has it, turn it off. If you are using it, set it up securely. This is to protect you from hackers invading your LAN and/or using your Internet connection without your knowledge. As long as you are only interested in getting out to the Internet, though, it really doesn't matter where in your topology the wireless access point is located, as long as it can route to the Internet.

Care to translate to English? I know about as much about networking as Bill Clinton does about marital fidelity.
