Get this!

My Motorola VT1005V (ATA) could not get an IP from the Windows XP Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) DHCP Server or connect to Vonage when using a Static IP.

I put a Linksys router between WinXP ICS and my ATA and Voila, Solid green light, dial tone. The ATA got an IP from the router no problem. My hunch is that my ATA does not like WinXP ICS. But I don't want to carry a router as well as the ATA.

Now:
WiFi---Laptop with ICS---Linksys Router---VT1005V
Desired:
WiFi---Laptop with ICS---VT1005V


Does anyone have any idea how to eliminate the Router?
How do I make my ATA and WinXP ICS friends? There must be some kind of configuration in ICS that can make this happen. What does a router offer that ICS does not?

Any comments appreciated!

When connecting via ICS, make sure you are using a crossover cable first of all. Second of all, you will not need a static IP address when you use ICS. Once Staic IP is removed, reboot your adapter and it should work.

Yes it works.. I tried the setup with my laptop..
While at a business trip, I went to a hotel that got only a wireless connection instead of a wired connection, so I was unable to use my voice terminal.. But that make me want to try XP Internet Connection Sharing.

Laptop: with regular LAN port, and a WiFi connectin card for internet access.

I shared the Wifi connection and the LAN port was automatically assigned to 192.168.0.1. I set the voice terminal to static IP 192.168.0.2 and everything worked fine, made like 10 calls.. I am glad, since the hotel charge me for local calls too..


I am attempting a very similar setup however with a desktop that has wireless connectivity to a wireless router downstairs but I want the Vonage adapter upstairs near the computer but I cannot for the life of me get the phone light to come on at all. The adapter is definitely getting an IP address from the windows xp ICS machine and the ethernet light is on but there is absolutely no phone light happening.

I've also tried the whole ethernet bridging thing to no avail either.


Edit:

Now I'm noticing that the power light blinks twice stays solid for a second then blinks again. Any idea what this number of blinks signifies?

It was pretty simple.. I changed the settings to the ATA throught the PC port first.. It was set to the following:
Static IP: 192.168.0.2
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 192.168.0.1

Not sure about anything in the advanced tab, but arent' those only for if you are using it as router?

Didn't set any port forward on the XP. Basically just shared it.

Connection is plugged into the WAN port, the thing you need is a cross network cable, since if you don't, you will not see the connection light up..

Not complicated at all..


* Hello, I'm just a little curious if you also managed to get INCOMING CALLS to work? I haven't yet done Vonage over ICS myself but we're working on one on a boat and I think we will soon find out just how complicated this really is. I hate to make a grim prediction but I think it needs port forwarding in Windows XP Firewall which works with ICS.

The reason I say that is this. I run a web server on a DSL connection. I used to run it right on the XP machine. I recently created another machine for the web server and put it onto my LAN inside of the ICS. Incoming connections to port 80 still try to go to my main machine.

But if I go in the advanced tab and add a port 80 tcp and tell it this is on 192.168.0.x (whatever my server ip is) then wallah! The web server works on the 2nd machine.

I think some part of the Vonage Voip connection will need the same type of port settings in advanced. That is where you do port forwarding.

Anyone have any experience on this?

I have Charter cable internet to a wireless router, wired to my Vonage adapter and my PC. Wireless to the kid's PC and the DirecTiVo. Everything works well.

Charter messed up (long story) and I lost my internet and hence the phone. With no imminent resolution of the Charter problem in sight, I had an idea to get online. The kid's PC has a wireless USB adapter which I connected to my upstairs PC with two extension cables. By taping the adapter to the (off) ceiling fan I was able to pull in a very faint open wireless connection. I have no idea who this access point belongs to - not one of my neighbors, anyway.

Despite the very poor signal, my internet access was fast. So I decided to try and share the access with my Vonage adapter. Using the network config wizard in Windows XP, I set up sharing to my LAN port. Plugged the Vonage box into the PC LAN and had a dialtone! Made a call which went through perfectly.

My Charter problem is now fixed. But for a while my phone was connected to a Vonage adapter, to a PC, to a wireless USB stuck on a ceiling fan, connected to an unknown faraway wireless router (thanks, whoever you are), connected somehow to the internet.

My brother has somehow had such a wireless access as well for a laptop. Somewhere around his house someone has DSL (I analyzed all of that one day when it was up and working) and left their Access Point open.

Now what I wonder as well is if anyone has turned on the XP Firewall and has the Vonage still working?

It's a good idea with a broadband connection to have the main PC that's on the connection, and sharing it, to be firewalled against exploits and attacks. But the Vonage ports would have to be drilled throughthe firewall I would think in order for it to work.

Shouldn't be such a big feat to accomplish. I've gotta go change a Cisco router config today at that same location. I'll try the firewall as well and report back on my results.

I'd like to report that my Vonage is now working perfectly fine. I'm not exactly sure why, but it may have had something to do with having my Vonage adapter unplugged for a while or having it unplugged while rebooting my windows machine. Incoming calls, outgoing calls, caller ID, everything works like a dream now.

So basically my setup is:

Wireless Connection to a Linksys Router downstairs, shared with Windows XP ICS
Crossover cable running from PAP2 to Ethernet on Computer.

I'd also like to mention though, that I have placed my IP on the DMZ on the linksys wireless router, and windows firewall is disabled and I will be replacing it with something a little more comprehensive like Sygate.

Also I'm not sure if my success is attributed to the fact that my 911 dialing was finally activated. Just too many things happened all at once to know really what caused it to work.
