PostPosted: Sat Oct 29, 2005 11:33 pm    Post subject: Linksys Router for Phone/D-Link Wireless Router for Laptop? Reply with quote Back to top



Hello--

I have a Linksys Broadband Router with two phone ports for my Vonage system. I have that connected to a Speedstream 5100 modem (supplied by SBC), which supplies me with my DSL. This is all connected to my desktop.

I recently bought a laptop, and it came with a D-Link DI-524 Wireless Router (the laptop has a wireless networking card). I have the blue ethernet cable connected from the back of the D-Link Router to the back of the Vonage Linksys Router, but that's just about as far as I've gotten.

My question is, how do I set up my wireless router, without interrupting my Vonage phone service? Can this be done?

Yes, this can be easily done. Many on this forum, myself included (although I don't have a D-Link), have a Vonage device and a wireless router.

1. Go here for info from Vonage and select the Vonage device you have for installation instructions:
http://www.vonage.com/help.php?category=3&nav=3

2. Check your wireless documentation to get that part set up.

3. Search this forum for how others who own your D-Link model have theirs configured, especially if you have special requirements like VPN, for example. If your D-Link doesn't have QoS management, put your Vonage device between your modem and wireless (which is your current config).

4. Come back and ask additional specific questions.

Your desired config basically works and it's simple (and fun!) to set up.

kameelah,

take a look at the setup on my signature at the bottom of my post. I have a very similar setup. The only changes I made with the Dlink D-524 wireless router is to convert it to an Access Point for my laptop. Here are the steps I took.

First, I made sure that my Linksys is connected to my modem and then connected from one of the Linksys ports (in my case port 3) to one of the numbered ports, 1-4, (not the internet or WAN port) of the DLink.

Second, you will now need to disable the router part of it. So you need to connect a computer directly to it with a wire. Then type in 192.168.1.1 on your Internet Explorer and it should open up the configuration page of your D-Link. Enter in the password and username as found in your manual.

Now you will need to disable DHCP and also change the IP address to something like 192.168.15.150. I believe you need to save the changes after each step.

Once these changes have been made, you will want to reboot everything in order. Turn off everything. Now connect the modem's power plug and wait until all the lights are solid. Then connect the power to your linksys and wait until all lights are solid including your phone port 1. Lastly, power on the DLink wireless router.

Now you should be able to surf the net from both your desktop and laptop and also be able to use the phone service.

I hope this helps, mundy5

Mundy5-

I registered for this forum specifically so I could reply and thank you for your post. I've been working for hours trying to get this exact setup to work, looking at tons of generic setups with configuration settings that aren't even available on my hardware. This answer worked like a charm.

thanks again

I have these same two devices, but I hooked them up differently because the WRTP54G wasn't working so well as a router. It was having DNS issues (taking like 30 secs to connect to a website) and I was having problems with calls connecting and people hearing the first few words I would say.
This was fixed by hooking everything up in the following manner:
Cable modem -> D-link -> WRTP54G.

That part is easy, the next part gets a little tricky. Go into the settings of the WRTP54G, disable DHCP, disable wireless, enable remote access, and set it up to use a static IP address and type that address in there. Then go into the D-link, set up a static IP for the WRTP54G using the address you typed into the WRTP54G, then set up the DMZ to allow that IP address to pass completely through the D-link. This setup greatly improved my wireless net surfing AND my call quality. As others have said, the WRTP54G is not so good as a router.
