I will be spending about a month in a hotel with high-speed internet and would like to be able to use Vonage to make and recieve calls. I have a few questions:
1) Will the connection be secure (credit-cards, etc)
2) Will the hotel block it (it's a Marriott Resident Inn)

I do not want to use SoftPhone or SkypeOut if at all possible.

1) Will the connection be secure (credit-cards, etc)

Personally, I wouldn't use my credit card on any other PC except my own. And then only if the site im using it on is well known.

As for a public PC, anyone with access could put a key logger or trojan on it. So will it be secure? Well, its a gamble.

2) Will the hotel block it (it's a Marriott Resident Inn)

2)Call the Marriot and ask them.

It should work provided that the hotel doesn't use some form of authentication for their network.

Also,If the hotel uses WIFI you will need a wireless bridge in order for it to work

I meant over Vonage - can someone "listen in" since we would be on the hotel's network?

I used Voip in a Marriot Residence Inn and the connection was so poor and chopy it made it really unusable. The hotel usually has so many people using the internet that the speeds really are poor.

You could also see the poor service while web surfing (long response times, etc.)

PostPosted: Wed Jul 06, 2005 1:27 am    Post subject: Authentication at Marriott hotels Reply with quote Back to top

I just got back from staying the long weekend at a Fairfield Inn. From what I'm told, all Marriott hotels use authentication. After chatting with our local linux and network guru's, they suggested that I take a router also; use my computer to authenticate; then attach the PAP.

Hope this works for you. Let us know.

Since the computers are behind the router wouldn't the router have to authenticate, or does that come through the router to the PC, or would you use the router as a switch?

What I might do is run the hotel internet through my laptop to the PAP (which in my case is RT31P2) using an extra ethernet pc card

Also
If the router does not work (letting me only use the phone or the pc), will a switch work on the hotel's network? (letting me use pc, phone, and AP)

Thanks

The authentication comes through the router. If I understand correctly, the authentication is for the IP address, which the router will hold (assuming NAT, of course). Once the IP is authenticated any traffic should flow through fine.

I don't think Marriott blocks the needed ports.

Let us know what works.

I'm planning on calling them today to make sure (although I doubt they'll know).

Otherwise, I'll find out on Monday and I'll let you know
