PostPosted: Fri Jul 03, 2009 9:49 pm    Post subject: Setting up my V-Portal with a wireless network Reply with quote Back to top

I just changed from DSL to a wireless provider in my area. The reason was the DSL upload was too slow. There is really no modem that came with the wireless internet setup - just an antenna and a little POE block to power it. When the technician arrived, he setup my Netgear router to use PPPOE and it worked great. I was reading the instructions and it says the V-Portal should go between the modem and the router. Since I do not have a modem, I assumed it needed to go between the POE and the router. It did not like this at first. I then read where I need to log in and change the settings to use POE so that it can go between the block and the router. Is that correct? One other thing I tried was coming off the router to the V-Portal and then to my computer. When I did this, I cannot connect over my home network to the other computers. Is it better to place it between the POE and router? Or does it matter?

If you want to take advantage of the Vonage adapters QOS so that it prioritizes voice packets over any other data from your network, the Ethernet cable from the Antenna would need to connect to the WAN port of the Vonage adapter.

Since you say the tech set up PPPoE on the Netgear router to authenticate your Internet connection, the same thing would have to be configured in the Vonage adapter. You would then set your Netgear router for DHCP and connect it's WAN port to the Vonage adapter's LAN port. This way all your computers and peripherals connect behind the Netgear router which places them on the same subnet and they all can communicate.

Having a PC behind the Vonage adapter and other PC's behind the Netgear router will NOT allow them to communicate as is. Static routing would be needed since you are trying to communicate between two Layer 3 devices which places your PC's on different subnets. That's why it is just easier for basic home users to have them all behind a single router.

Ok. That makes sense. Many thanks. I will set it up that way then.

I have basically the same setup as KeithM. I am assuming that when he talks about the POE block, he's talking about the little half-moon device that the Cat5 from the antenna gets plugged in to. (Is that correct)

Judging by VonTechMgr's response, do you completely eliminate that device? I have been trying to set my Vonage device up so that it is first in line, and have not had any luck

I don't know what a 'half-moon-shaped' device is. The terms POE (power over ethernet) and PPPOE (point-to-point protocol over ethernet) both appear in this thread. Are we all speaking about the same device?

If the antenna is actually a receiver that delivers Internet to a connected device via ethernet, then it requires power to operate it. If that power is supplied over the ethernet cable, then you need to connect an ethernet power-injector between the 'antenna' and your Vonage adapter. (Is that device half-moon-shaped?)

If you're using PPPOE, then the router connected to the 'antenna' must be configured with a username and password to log in to your ISP account.

Yes, that is the half-moon device. It is the POE device. I am set up with a PPoE connection, and I have the user ID and password.

I think you need to put the 'half-moon' POE device between your antenna and whatever its ethernet cable connects with -- your Vonage ATA or your router, whichever is first in line.
