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?

Thanks

You should be able to do this with the CAT5 cable that came with your PAP2 adapter. Your "wireless enabled" computer will still have an ethernet port. You should be able to plug the hotel's connection (assuming that the hotel's service is high speed and doesn't block ports that Voip uses) into your PAP2 and then use the supplied CAT5 cable to connect your "wireless enabled" computer to the PAP2.

Let us know how it works with the hotel's internet service. The forum will be interested to here about the service quality etc.

Cheers

This is interesting. Does this mean that you would not need a modem?

Ah yes, a modem! What a novel idea Embarassed

How the heck would this work in a hotel? You would basically be connecting to their LAN. It should still work shouldn't it? I guess it would depend on the bandwidth that the hotel connection can provide. Who wants to try it first? Question

Nope, I thought that was the answer too, but I've tried exactly that configuration (e.g. connected the Vonage adaptor to the computer ethernet port.... ); doesn't work.

Any other suggestions?

Does the hotel have wireless or an actual wirel LAN to access the internet?

Are you trying to use a phone that you bring from home to connect to the adaptor or the one at the hotel?

What exactly was your setup?

Could you just get a cat5 splitter, one side to the pap2 and hardwire the other directly into the wireless enable computer's nic?.
see this link for splitter details. http://www.accesscomms.com.au/Products/P2315.htm

The biggest thing is how are you going to get the internet connection to the PAP2 adaptor in that setup. Just because your laptop has an internet connection through wireless doesnt mean whatever you plug into the Cat5 connector on your laptop will also have internet. The PAP2 has to get an IP address. If your laptop has wireless internet then you would have to use SoftPhone to make calls.

I would think in order to use the computer/notebook to allow a device like the PAP2 ATA to route to the hotel's WiFi you would have to run an internet gateway on that computer. This is very easy if running Linux, should not be that difficult with the latest MAC OS, but those running WIndows would need some additional software. The computer would have to supply the necessary NAT routing along with DHCP to provide the address and routing details to the ATA.

I have not tried this with Voip, but have done this in an industrial setting to temporarily connect internet devices. I do run Linux on my notebook with all the necessary services installed.

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?
Here is an excerp from the Vonage FAQ

Whether it's a short trip or a permanent move, you don't have to give up your phone number just because you're out of the area. All you need is your Vonage phone adapter and a broadband Internet connection
