One other thing you can do: use your laptop as the wifi client, and bridge your wifi connection to your Ethernet port. Hook up your computer's Ethernet port to the Voip adapter box. It's kinda kludgy but it will work.


There's a slicker way. Instead of bridging the port (although that's a neat trick), simply use ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).

Here are the instructions for WinXP. They're similar for Windows 2000. If you're running Win98 SE or (shudder) WinME, you need to setup "Internet Connection Sharing" (ICS)

All you need to do is "share" your Internet connection...in your case, your wireless card. You'll find it under the advanced settings tab on the properties settings for your card. Then, as indicated, you connect the WAN interface on your phone adapter to your laptop's Ethernet port. The phone adapter will acquire its IP address from your computer and....voila...you're online to make Voip calls.

Alternatively, you can do the same thing by going through the "Set up a home or small office network" dialogue in "My Network Places".

I've done this before and it works fine.

I can try that a home before I hit the road. I can see how to make the connections, but what does "bridge" mean. My notebook uses W2K Pro. Why does my brain keeps saying "Don't try this at home." Lol

Bridging basically means to attach two networks together. Your computer perceives its WiFi connection as being a totally different network from its Ethernet port. By bridging the connections, you're telling the computer that you want them to be treated as one contiguous network, and you want your machine to be the route between them.

Try that Internet Connection Sharing first, though. It's a slicker version of bridging.

Ok I am trying Plan A. Under advance settings I have selected Internet Sharing, and there is a choice of services. They range from 3 mail protocols, a Post Office, and Telenet Server. Which do I select? If I select Telenet, it wants the name or address of the server computer or private network. Help!
Thanks

Hi. I didn't see your post since I'm not on here very much. I would just skip setting it up manually and instead use the Network Connection wizard.

Go to "My Network Places" and under "Network Tasks" in the left sidebar you should see a choice labelled "Set up a home or small office network".

Click on that icon and a dialogue box appears labeled "Network Setup Wizard". Click the "Next" button after reading the notes.

Check the radio button "This computer connects directly to the Internet. The other computers on my network connect to the Internet through this computer."

Follow the dialogues in the wizard, remembering that in your case, the wireless connection is your "Internet connection" and that your wired connection is the connection that you are "sharing". The terminology is a bit confusing, but that's the gist of it. When the dialogue is complte, your Ethernet NIC will be assigned the static IP address of 192.168.0.1 and it will start handing out IP addresses to devices connected to this port.

Essentially you've turned your PC into an Internet Connection Sharing router. When you connect your phone adapter to the Ethernet port on your computer, the phone adapter will obtain an IP address from your computer and your computer will dynamically (and in the same way) become the default gateway for the phone adapter.

Mystic - You may not have noticed that my Notebook runs under Windows 2000 Pro. The instructions which you provided seem to be for Windows XP. Can the W2K Wizard handle the job. If so perhaps you would be kind enough to provide instructions to the correct Wizard and then how to get through it.

Yup, Windows 2000 has the equivalent wizard as I indicated in my 1st post.

Let me (us) know how it works for you!

Mystic - Sorry forgot about that first post. Anyway I gave it a try. I went to the Properties for my wireless LAN card, Sharing, and checked "Enable ICS for this connection". It reported "an error occurred while ICS was being enabled". It also said "ICS cannot be enable because a LAN connection is already configured with the IP address that is required for auto IP addressing".

According to previous messages it wants to assign 192.168.0.1 . According to IPCONFIG my LAN5 has the IP 192.168.0.3 and a Default Gateway of 192.168.0.1 . Perhaps this is the conflict. I also have a LAN (unnumbered) which I use for a cable hook up (LAN) at the office using my Linksys Ethernet PCMCIA card. I usually disable it to speed things up, but I tried enabling it for this procedure.

Any suggestions? Thanks

You hit the problem right on the head. The problem is that your wireless card (I'm assuming that it is "LAN Connection 5") is on the same IP subnet as the wired connection needs to be on. This is confusing your PC in its role as a router since you are asking it to route between network Barney and network Barney. If networks don't have unique names (ie: subnets) then your internet connection-sharing PC can't do its job.

If you wait until you get to a hotel to try this out (now that you know the process) it is unlikely that the hotel's wireless network will be on the same subnet and the procedure/wizard should work fine. However, if you're impatient like me and you would like to try it out before you travel, change the subnet that your wireless router (which is serving up the 192.168.0.5 address) is on if you're the administrator. Linksys, for example, defaults to a router LAN IP address of 192.168.1.1 for many of their products, assigning addresses dynamically from 192.168.1.100 and up.
