I thought you could just plug into the hotels cat 5 and plug in a phone and off you go. A computer is not necessay for the phone to work. The MAC address in the pap2 will connect to Vonage will it not?


That will work with a wired (cat5) connection to the internet, but the hotel he was at was wireless which is a totally different ball game

Hotels are increasingly providing wireless highspeed internet access. Is there any way to connect the Linksys PAP2 adaptor to my wireless enabled computer so that I can take advantage of my Vonage account while in my hotel?


Read his post folks. WiFI not wired. As he mentioned the majority of Hotels in prime travel areas are providing free WIRELESS internet access. No CAT5 so either use one of the Linksys Wireless Voice Terminals or bring a small bridge.

As mentioned in another post you need this piece of hardware http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=33&scid=38&prid=558 or something like it. That gets the wireless signal and gives an ip address to whatever is connected to it (ex: PAP2 adaptor) which in turn will give internet access to the PAP2 adaptor, then plug a phone into the Line 1 jack (i am not sure if you can use hotel phones as they might be only for use with a telephone network setup) and you are good to go. You may have to connect it to your laptop first to configure for the wireless network and then put it on the PAP2 adaptor but you will have to find that out when you try it.

If the hotel has wired internet then you just need the PAP2 adaptor and plug the Cat5 cable into the PAP2

It sounds great! Do the hotels know that you are using their LAN? If they do, there is the possibility that they will charge you for the usage. No?

The hotel offers free bandwidth. It is transparent to them as to what this bandwidth is connected to. So my answer is, no they should not/would not charge for a Vonage connection.

Time will tell how "tricky" they get though as the hotel telephone is a HUGE revenue generator.

It sure is. They charge for local calls, and even calls to 1-800 numbers most of the time. Even if you call collect, you will be charged by the hotel for using their line. All of these charges will be lost if they allow Voip phone systems to work.

The problem with a Voip system is you would risk having your adapter stolen, and then whoever had it would have access to your line until you reported it. It's likely a small risk, but it is still a risk nonetheless. If you are going to do it, I would probably plug the hotel phone into the Vonage adapter and hide the adapter as best you can behind the night table or something. Maybe I'm paranoid, but there has been a lot of theft from hotels over the years.

Or... put the adaptor in your suitcase when you are out of the room?

So hotel phones do work with ou radaptors, you dont have to bring a regular phone with you?

Dont they run off a phone network the same way phones in offices do (ex: meridian phones)?

It would depend on the hotel. Most of the hotels I have been in have telephones with speed dial buttons on them, but those phones have all been standard analog phones. They would vary from place to place, of course. Unless you know for sure, you should probably take your own phone along with the adapter. Maybe just a cheap tiny phone. You can get some cheap ones that are relatively good and they even have call display on them. That's all you need for travel.

I'm going to Florida soon for a vacation. I wonder if Customs would question the adapter and phone when returning to Canada?!?
