PostPosted: Tue Dec 23, 2003 4:13 pm    Post subject: Vonage on the road over Wireless Access Points Reply with quote Back to top

Here is what I want to do. When I am on the road, I want to be able to stop at a Starbucks with a wireless access point, boot up my laptop, log onto the internet over my 802.11b connection, plug in a USB headset into the laptop, and dial over my Vonage telephone account, or receive calls over my Vonage telephone account via the laptop and wireless internet connection. Has Vonage or any third-party written the app to enable this to happen?

Regards,
Richard.

Appears you are looking for the Vonage Soft Phone. Log-in to your account and check the features page. I believe there is an extra charge and a different telephone number.

The VT1005 doesn't work very well over a wireless connection.

Actually, I beg to differ. I have had Vonage since last week and have been using it over a wireless connection flawlessly ever since.

VT1005 -> Linksys WRT54G Switch -> Linksys WET11 802.11b bridge -> Purdue University WLAN -> Purdue University OC-3 -> Internet.

I live about 1000 feet from a campus building and am using a 24db 2.4ghz antenna to wirelessly "wire in".

Free internet (5-6mb bidirectional), with $14.95 Vonage local phone service. Smile Can't beat it!

Well, using your topography it should certainly work. In fact, I'd be pissed if it didn't. A bit out of the norm though, don't you think?

Nope... I'm using a 9db panel antenna to connect to an access point, and I run my Vonage device through a bridge.

Just for *beep* and grins we took out an old laptop (PIII450) with a WiFi card, slapped XP Pro and netstumbler on it, turned on connection sharing on the WiFi card and connected the ATA to the ethernet port. It was very easy to roam around and find an open router to have a phone conversation on. No problems or drops. Now with SoftPhone I just need the laptop, netstumbler, and the wifi card. A friend called me from Bali last week with just this setup! Go Vonage!

I don't see how this will work. You will need to use the ATA to identify yearself as being a Vonage customer. You will also likely need a router to assign an IP address to the ATA. At Starbucks, you will need to enter your user ID and password to access the wireless. A Palm C would let you send instant messages and email. Would that work for you?

Here is one way to connect a notebook with wireless internet access up to a Vonage "box" (ATA).

1) I am using Windows XP Home.
2) connect up to the wireless network on your notebook.
3) Plug an ethernet patch cable (not Crossover cable) into the notebook ethernet port and into the WAN port on the Vonage ATA.
4) Open control panel and open network connections
5) Hold shift down and single click on the wireless connection and single click on the Local area Network connection (NIC card)
6) right click and "bridge the connections"
7) power off and on the Vonage box
Cool The Vonage phone should work

Note that there is no hardware firewall in this scenario - others perhaps could comment on whether it is possible to make this setup secure. I was connecting to a wireless network with WEP 64 bit encryption plus MAC filtering so I wasn't too worried.
