I have used Vonage for a couple years. Just got a laptop and switched my wired router to a wireless.
so i have a network set up for the two computers
the desktop(old computer) wired to the router
and the laptop wireless

So....
Now i want to get the Vonage up and running again

the old router RT31P-VD
new wireless router WRT110

and i was told to get a phone adapter and did so
its a PAP2-VN

all off these are Linksys

I looked all over the Vonage website for info on how to add the new equip. but found nothing. I found where i could move my number... there was a line about adding a new piece of equip but it didn't seem to lead there. Only a way of moving my number... so i didn't do it because i didn't want to compound my problem.

thanks for the help

I am not sure why you were told to get a new telephone adapter. If the RT31P2 you have still works, you would have left it as is and just connected the WAN port of the new WRT110 to one of the LAN ports on the RT31P2. The RT31P2 would act as both router and telephone adapter and the WRT110 would act as your wireless access point.

or

You could connect the WAN port of the WRT110 to the modem and then connect the WAN port of the RT31P2 to one of the LAN ports on the WRT110. In this setup, the WRT110 would act as your router and wireless access point while the RT31P2 would just be the telephone adapter.

If you really would like to use the PAP2, all you need to do is go to:

http://www.vonage.com/retail_subscribe/

Choose Option 2 -
Current Customer Login:
Add a Vonage retail device to my account.

Enter your Vonage web account username and password.

In the drop down menu under Activate My Adapter – MAC Address choose the option "Move a Line".

Enter the MAC address posted on the bottom of the PAP2 and follow through the rest of the prompts. This will allow you to add the new PAP2 to your existing account and move your number over to it.

Then you just have to connect the WAN port of the WRT110 to the modem and the WAN port of the PAP2 to a LAN port on the WRT110.

Also when setting up your wireless connection, make sure you have it secured using WAP which is the best or WEP (not as secure), if you don't have it secured people around you can be downloading off the internet using your IP address and bandwidth.

Like already posted, there was no need to get a new Vonage adapter.

Thanks for the replys.
I see what your saying about esing the old router and just adding the wireless.
I was trying to set this laptop up quickly or i would have reasherched my options and equipment needs a little better.
The adapter; I had tried to ad it to my account and it was saying that i didn't have a valid MAC address. And I have come to find out its not a "Vonage" phone adapter..... what ever that means.
Imjust going to get a phone adapter ad it to my equip.
list and be done with it.
So when i get a new adapter thats Vonage branded i should be able to fix the problem.

And one last thing regarding the security of my network where can i find out if its WAP or WEP

Thanks
tony

The MAC address must be from that of a Vonage branded unit. Linksys also puts out similar devices that are sold as open units that can be used with providers that allow you to bring your own equipment or you can use them with IP PBX's.

Since Vonage does not allow for this, the device you have has to be in Vonage's device inventory. These devices are valid and have the proper configuration to communicate with Vonage tftp servers in order to download a profile. Now there are cases where some of the MAC addressed were not uploaded into device inventory because Linksys never sent them the file. In this case, the device could be valid and it would take a few days for Vonage to get the information from Linksys and add it to device inventory. You would just need to supply Vonage with the MAC, serial number, and model of device.

For your security question, that is all up to you. You have to configure the wireless security yourself. The wireless router can do WPA or WEP. So you have to choose which you want to use and configure it. Then you would need to configure the wireless adapter in your laptop with the same security in order for it to communicate. WPA and WPA2 would be a better more secure choice over WEP however, they will all give you the security to keep people from just jumping on.

Not having wireless security is very bad. It will allow anyone who is looking to leech off of your connection to do so which could cause quality issues for Vonage. It also becomes a security risk for your internal PC's data. They could also download copyrighted material using your IP address which can get you into hot water with the MPAA and the RIAA. Even people not looking to be malicious could accidentally connect to you and be using your connection without them even knowing it.

I'm not sure why you are still talking about getting a Vonage branded adapter. Two people have already said you don't need one, you can keep using the one you've had for two years. The easiest setup is:

[DSL or Cable Modem] --> [Old Vonage Adapter] --> [Wireless Router] --> [Computers, both wired and wireless].

Just remember when wiring these, anything labeled WAN is input, and anything labeled LAN is output. Your Old Vonage Device, which is also a wired router, probably has one WAN (input) port and one LAN (output) port that you previously ran to your computer. Your new wireless router still has one WAN Port, but probably 4 or 5 LAN output ports.

This is probably very similar to what you already had, except now you are inserting the wireless device between the Old Vonage Adapter and your desktop computer.

Setting up wireless security has nothing to do with Vonage. Your wireless router has a web interface that you can access with your browser. You will have to type the IP address for the router in the address bar of your browser. From there you should be able to find a user friendly (hopefully) configuration page. Somewhere in there you will find a section on wireless security.

To find the IP address of your router, using your wired computer, type the [windowskey+R] on your keyboard. This should open a run window. Type cmd and [enter]. Type in the command "ipconfig" without the quotation marks and hit [enter]. Find the number listed as "Default Gateway". This should look something like "192.168.1.1". Type this number in the address bar of your browser, and it should take you to the page to configure your wireless router.
