PostPosted: Sun Jan 13, 2008 1:48 pm    Post subject: Can I se a "bridge" to connect to a neighbor's wi Reply with quote Back to top

1. I do not have a telephone line or an internet connection line.

2. My neighbor offers to let me connect to his wireless internet signal through a couple of wood frame walls and only about 25 feet away. I would like to use Vonage if possible, but I understand that I do need a hardwire connection for the Vonage "modem"..

3. Can I install a bridge router on my side to pick up the neighbor's signal wirelessly, then connect the Vonage modem to that?

4. If so, does anyone know a good piece of equipment to do this?

5. Do I need the neighbor to do anything to configure on his side - I'd prefer not to ask that of him and also will I ever need to reset anything of his equipment - besides the occasional and customary things that will happen on his side?

Thanks very much.

Yes this is possible, but it can be a setup that has problems.

The problems for your setup are two fold.

1. The bridge connection in general has been a setup that people have problems with when using Vonage. The issue is a reliable connection due to the wireless internet.

2. Your potential for issues is made worse by the fact that you will be connecting to what is probably a fairly weak signal since it is coming from another building.

What you would need is a router that is capable of being a "wireless client" or a "wireless ethernet bridge".

They almost do the same thing, but a wireless client allows you to connect just one device, where a wireless ethernet bridge allows you to connect multiple devices.

If you are going to go down this road I would recommend a Linux based router like the WRT54GL and use aftermarket firmware in it like Tomato or DD-WRT.

I've never used this type of configuration, but I have seen people have luck with it.

Please be warned though I have also seen many people be very unhappy with this type of setup because they could not keep a stable connection and as a result their phone call quality suffered.

Also this is a fairly complicated setup so I would not look in to this unless you are comfortable tinkering with things like this.

If you don't have any other options this is probably worth a shot, but its not without its problems.

Hope this helps.

This is very helpful but I may now cancel my just placed Vonage order. The sales rep who sold me the Vonage pkg told me it was not a problem and that I wouldn't have to get any more hardware. Checking about online, I found out different. I'm not tech savvy enough to attempt this with its problems plus I'm sad that Vonage sales would tell me this obvious fab.

Anyway, thanks again.

I concur with Butterman's assessment of your request and situation. I would not blame Vonage b/c it could be either that the sales rep did not understand your situation very well or that you did not explain yourself very well.

I.e. the sales rep could have thought that you were talking about using wifi with Vonage which usually means you have a hard wired connection and you want to use a wifi router with it.

I must concede that Vonage sales reps usually are not the highest trained folks when it comes to more complex situations like yours.

I'm glad that you have figured out that it would be a difficult situation now than later.

You can receive wifi from your neighbor's wireless router by installing a Game Adapter, i.e., Linksys WA54G in you house. You then connect your Vonage ATA to the game adapter. If the signal is weak, you can upgrade your neighbor's wireless router's antenna (available in stores like CompUSA) to extend the range to more than 100 feet. I have used this setup with another Voip provider, Betamax, and I get very good voice connection.
