PostPosted: Fri Aug 15, 2008 4:05 pm    Post subject: Using vonage in hotel with only wireless access Reply with quote Back to top

I'm going to be staying in a hotel that only offers wireless internet access. The hotel brochure does not specify whether or not there is a browser log-on screen to get internet service (probably there is).

I want to be able to make and receive calls from two Vonage different phone numbers while in the hotel. I have a laptop running XP with a wireless and wired ethernet port. Is there a way to share the hotel's wireless internet access through my laptop to my Vonage linksys adapter?

This is what I want to do:

Hotel ) ) ) Laptop -------- VonageAdaptor ==== 2 phone lines

If the laptop has both a wireless card and a wired ethernet card you can use it to bridge the internet connection from the hotel's wireless service through the ethernet card to the Vonage box. I've never done it myself, but others have reported success. You may find detailed instructions if you search the forum.

A better approach for long term use would be a wireless access point that connects wirelessly and provides an ethernet port.

You are better off to download Vonage Talk and use your laptop's microphone and speakers or buy a head set with mic and make the phone calls, this way you don't need to lug around your adapter.

Here is the link:

http://alpha.vonage.com

Once there you can find the Vonage Talk program. Log in using your Vonage user name and password.

ditto on roscopco's suggestion. it allows you to not even have to bring your adapters.

Thanks for the helpful tips. The problem with Vonage Talk is that it only works for one number. I am not aware of how to use the software to receive and make calls for two different numbers.

if that is the case, then taking the adapter with you and enabling ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on your laptop might work out for you.

I assume you have wireless at home. I would test there first.

Even so, there is NO guarantee that the Hotel or their ISP is not blocking Voip either intentionally or as just part of their NAT implementation..

ICS - that's exactly what I was looking for but didn't know what it was called. Thanks mundy5!

ed56, you have a good point. There's not much I can do if Voip is blocked at the hotel, so I'll have to come up with a plan B at that point. Do you happen to know if VonageTalk uses the same ports as the Vonage Adaptor (i.e., will Vonage Talk get around Voip blocking)?

I believe they share a number of ports, and both use SIP.

Vonage Talk uses:

10000, 10050-10150, and 5060-5061

Vonage ATA uses:

69, 123, 10000 to 20000 and 5060 to 5061

the ports are and update as follows, :

5060-5061 UDP (SIP-TLS) is every 45 seconds or so, 69 UDP (TFTP) every couple of minutes, 123 UDP (Nettime) every 4 hours or so and 10000-20000 (random high ports) randomly - no fixed repeat time

Is there a way to do this without using Vonage talkes. I have read about creating a bridge using a wireless router. I frequently go to campgrounds with free wireless service and in some of these my cell coverage is minimal at best. Would love to take my Vonage device and be able to use a standard phone.
