Is there a router I can use that will enable me to use my USB Wireless internet service and connect with the RTP300 phone adaptor??
The internet antennae has a USB connection - not an ethernet plug. I tried the compact adaptors on each end - no connection, will a router work??

I am a newbie, and I have spent hours reading here and I am almost ready to give up. Thanks

Maybe you can describe your set-up pre Vonage and now. That might help. Having trouble understanding a device with a usb antenna?

Did this device work before? What kind of modem do you have and is it ethernet or usb?

I normally have a linksys Wireless-B USB Network adapter(antenna) - it connects directly to my PC with a USB wire... I get wireless internet connection at a very high speed from it - as fast as my old cable connection used to be.
I connected the Linksys RTP300 to the PC with a compact USB adaptor 200 - and used another compact USB adapter to connect to the antenna (wireless b USB network adaptor) and got nothing on the phone.. no interent connection.
I tried to connect the Linksys USB network adapter with Compact USB adaptors on each end of an ethernet wire - no signal.
So, I am stumped.. would a router help?

Your setup still isn't clear. Who is your ISP? How do you get connected to it? You said that in your old setup your PC was connected to the wireless, but what is on the other end of the wireless link?

My whole building is networked on a Wi-Fi network. I am only one of many who use the internet - and my signal is picked up by my Wireless-B USB network adapter and goes directly into my PC.. as far as I understand it.
Is that what you mean?

Yes, that's much clearer. Leaving your computer out of the picture for a moment, what happens if you use a USB adapter to connect the wireless unit to the WAN port of the RTP300? If that gives you a phone connection, you can then hook the RTP to your computer using an ethernet cable, assuming of course that your computer has an ethernet connection.

What you really want here is a wireless router that connects to your service and provides outputs for both your computer and your RTP300. I gather that the Wireless-B does not have ethernet outputs?

Your Vonage router needs an ethernet WAN connection. period. If your old connection pre-vonage was simply an antenna that plugs into a USB port on your computer (which does sound admittedly very cool) then you won't be able to connect to the wireless network. If you had a regular wireless B compatible router that could pick up and authenticate with the wireless signal, then feed your Vonage adapter off of that, that would work.

Obviously the Wireless B router is the best solution, as you say. However, if this adapter he has allows him to plug the USB wireless unit into the RTP WAN port, that might work. Alternately, if his computer has an ethernet port, he may be able to get Windows to bridge from the USB internet connection to the ethernet port, and from there to the RTP. Of course, he would have to keep the computer on to have phone service.

I figured I would have to have the computer on for phone service.. I have a few select long distance friends I want to really be free to talk with for long periods... so, it would work for me.
If I get the wireless B router - I can plug the Wireless-B USB network adaptor into it?? I see from the diagrams that I can plug the phone adaptor into a router... ethernet to ethernet - but I would still need a USB 200 adaptor - (right?) To be able to plug the phone adapter into the PC.
An ethernet WAN connection.... is that on a router?? (sorry do be so dense) Or is there a seperate adapter for that, too.

I just googled Ethernet WAn and am reading... looks like something I can have installed on my PC.

Let's back up. I asked whether you could hook the RTP300 WAN port to the Wireless-B USB device using your adapter. If you can, do you get a phone light on the RTP300?

Second, do you have an ethernet port on your computer? That would help a lot. The normal configuration for your situation would probably be to have a Wireless-B router connecting to your internet service, then ethernet cables from the router to both the PC and the RTP300.
