I've also heard channel 7 - hell one of them has to work right?

I went ahead and bought the 5 mghz Vtech cordless so hopefully I won't have to deal with interference Wink

Interesting and all, but why not just buy a multi-handset system and plug the base directly into the ATA in your entertainment system. Then you can locate additional handsets on stations anywhere in your house.

The newer multi-handset systems have voicemail indicators, handset speakerphone, and other nice features that complement Vonage very well. I bought the VTech 5.8 Ghz system (5831 i think) and i like it quite well, though it was a bit pricey.

The Vonage ATA using wireless is not the problem. My main computer is connected wirelessly to the internet connection in the living room, so even if I directly connect the ATA to the router I'll still have the interference problem, as my ATA would then be co-located with a wireless access point(vs. the wireless bridge in the previous setup).

OK, xianman, after a little experimentation, I think I see what you mean. Interference is not the problem. The problem is my main computer saturating the wireless link so the Vonage can't get enough bandwidth. I tested this my moving the ATA to the entertainment center as you suggested. Although I thought the setup I had was pretty slick, I'll stick with this one for now. When I upgrade my router to 802.11g maybe it will be better.

Since your ATA is behind your wireless router, I assume that it has a private IP address. Is this address assigned to the ATA or the WET11 bridge? My guess is that you will need to configure either the WET11 or the ATA to have a static IP, so that you can forward all of the Vonage ports to your ATA from behind the firewall/router. I just ordered my service, so I haven't been able to experiment yet, but I have a similar situation with the cable modem being in a bad place. Is either the WET11 or the ATA web config?

Just an update. The 802.11b/g wireless defintely has too much interference with the 2.4GHz cordless phone. I may return the phone for a 5.8 GHz phone or try a different channel on my wireless. I here Channel 11 works best alongside cordless phones.


Very Happy That was exactly my problem. I used a Plantronics CT12 (2.4 GHz), and it interfered to such an extent that I sold it on eBay. Now I got a multi-line phone and a Plantronics CS50 (900 MHz), so the interference is no longer a problem. Regarding the channels, forget it, most 2.4 GHz telephones seem to hop around as they see fit.

In addition, there might by other WLANs out there that do not broadcast their identifier, i.e. you cannot see them, but they interfere with your WLAN just the same.

I don't have this setup anymore, but to answer your question, both the WET11 and the ATA got private dynamic IP addresses from the router. No port forwarding or anything like that is/was necessary.

Cheers,
Tim

Why not just plus your ATA to your existing phone wiring (provided you are not using POTS anymore)? That's what I did and it works great and I can use any phone anywhere in my home for Vonage service.

I want to use my existing phone jacks. Could you explain what you
needed to do?

If you're not familiar with telecommunications, you may want to have someone look at this for you, but I'll give you the jest of it.

Most homes are wired on a "loop" with their inside wiring. That is to say (basically) that the phone line from your carrier comes into your house and goes to your first wall jack. Your wall jack, at the same time, is connected to the next wall jack, and so on down the line. This is why you can pick up multiple extensions in your house and always get a dial tone or hear an ongoing conversation.

To use your existing wiring for your Vonage service, you basically need to take the phone lines from your old carrier and disconnect them from your inside wiring. This leaves the "loop" inside your home connected, but takes that old copper and battery voltage out of the equation. You should then just be able to plug your ATA up to an existing jack in your home, and that puts in on the "loop" with everything else.

The adapter manufactures do not recommend this, but it has been done successfully many times including at my home. If you are not sure of something, have a telecommunications specialist look at it, or ask here. Good Luck!
