I just got rid of Verizon DSL-the worst service in the world.
My question-

I have only Internet wireless on my laptop (built in wireless modem).
How do I connect my LinkSys RT31P2 so that I can use Voip
I tried connecting LAN from the back of my computer to WAN on LINSYS and connecting phone1 to my phone. No dial tone.
I set the LINK YSYto OBTAIN Auto IP

Thanks.

I'm assuming you have a wireless router already. I did also. Vonage just sent me the router with the phone jacks in them. So I hooked the new router up to my old wireless router (which also had ethernet ports for hardwiring a network). Does your wireless router also have 4 or so ethernet ports in the back of it? Or is it strictly wireless?? In which case you might have to switch the order of the routers.

Vonage doesn't offer a wifi phone adapter. you need to go for the softphone or look for wifi enabled phones. there are several threads on that here, though I can't remember off the top of my head if one is available for Vonage yet or not. I think it's still in test mode.

but now that I think about it, you may be able to connect say, a linksys pap2 (vonage device, little different than the rt31p2 in that it's not a router) to the ethernet port on your router and use it that way. There's a thread on it somewhere, I'll try to find it.

edit: this is the thread, but greg's solution is probably better.

I have mine set up using wireless, here is what you have to do.

You need to go buy a wireless bridge, here are a couple of decent ones, I actually use the first one, it is cheap and works:
wireless 1
Wireless 2

You use that to pull a wireless feed from the wireless network. On the back of those it will have a place to insert your network cable, run the network cable from that to the in on your Vonage router.

One thing to keep in mind when using wireless to connect is that using a 2.4 ghz wireless phone will interfere with the wireless network and possibly cause dropped connection or slow down. So it is best to go with either a 900mhz or 5.2 ghz cordless phone

Wi-Fi only provides the connection between your laptop and an access point. As gregh29 suggested, a wireless bridge can "grab" the same wireless signal from the same access point into something your router / TA can plug into. You just need to configure the bridge to pick up the same access point as your PC.

Of course, to connect to the internet, the access point needs to connect to some ISP. Obviously your laptop is connected to a Wi-Fi access point which is connected to the internet. So the question is, who is providing the internet service from the access point? Is it a public access point? A "hot spot" nearby such as a Starbucks / T-Mobile hot spot? A neighbor perhaps? Smile

actually, in his case the answer is quite simple: plug the RT31P2 into the back of the WRT54G. then plug a phone into the back of the RT31P2 (Line 1). You don't need to mess with anything WiFi-related in that sort of setup
