Hi, I've been looking around this excellent forum for advice -- like others who try to put the ATA between their PC and their cable modem I get random lockups that are really frustrating

I don't have a router and was wondering if anyone here has used or knows if you can use a PC with two NICs using windows XP internet connection sharing to put the ATA behind the pc...so:
Internet > Cable Modem > PC > ATA

Basically using the PC as a router

That's a shame,

I actually got it partially set up - I had sharing set up on the nic connected to the cable modem and set it to forward all the UDP ports listed in the Vonage setup guide (well except the 10000 range - i just set up 10500 since thats what I saw on the boards as needed, xp doesn't make it easy to foward a range) I also had IP forwarding turned on with a registry setting change. - see:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com:80/support/kb/articles/q315/2/36.asp&NoWebContent=1

Once you set up the connection sharing the second NIC gets a static ip of 192.168.0.1. I also added the 192.168.102.5 to that NIC so that I could access the ATA's setup page - from there I disabled NAT, and set a static ip to 192.168.0.2, set the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0, the gateway to 192.168.0.1. Once the ATA rebooted it seemed like it was at least partially working - on the status page it showed the ip address, gateway, dns entries, and also showed my number under the caller id field so it had to be at least partially communicating with the ATA. Until I got to that point the ATA was either unaccessible or showed everything blank on the status page --- so I have to think I got it at least partially correct.

Oh well, unless anyone has any ideas I guess I just have to get a router...was worth a shot though for those of us that have xp and an extra NIC laying around.

Hmm was just thinking maybe I forwarded the ports to the wrong IP in the internet connection sharing setup -- I'm pretty sure i forwarded them to 192.168.0.1, shoulda tried forwarding them to the ATA's IP.
Again if anyone things this could possible work, please post : )

XP really should be able to function as a router - I think they've had that functionality since NT

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..

Thanks Canomap,

Could you offer any advice on the setup:

Did you have to set up any port forwarding in windows for the wifi card?

When you set the voice terminal to a static ip, did you also enter any subnet, gateway, or dns numbers? Did you uncheck the DHCP/NAT checkbox on the advanced tab?

Did you plug the network cable into the WAN or PC port on the ATA?

From what it sounds like you pretty much just plugged in and it worked - maybe i'm making it too complicated!!!

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..

Perfect thanks!!! thats the problem i was having - the wan port wouldn't work (so i was trying to use the pc port) but i was just trying to use a standard network cable not a crossover cable.

Thanks a ton!!! this is a big help and will save me from having to buy a router and still be able to keep the Vonage service, which I really like Smile

I believe having it static or dynamic also doesn't matter since XP Internet sharing automatically assigns ip also.. I was doing it just to make sure.

But yes.. have a crossover cable and connect to the WAN port is the most important point..

Canomap you are my hero. I have the same exact setup as you. I have had little success. What model of ATA do you have?
I have a Motorola vt1005v.

Assigning the vt1005v a static IP gets it to four blinks which means 'Registering with your Voip provider server.' It makes it past three which is 'Downloading its configuration profile from your Voip provider.' So there is SOME communication.

If I put it to DHCP it only gets to 2 blinks 'Acquiring its network address' and never gets an IP from ICS. ICS works with my other laptop. So I think static is the way to go. Here's my setup.


WiFi PCMCIA => ICS on Laptop => ethernet port => crossover cable => Motorola vt1005v => another laptop

The 'another laptop' behind the vt1005v cannot ping the 'ethernet port' or access the internet.
I do not have a firewall. I do not have WinXP SP2. I'm stumped! Any help would be great!

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 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.

WiFi---Laptop with ICS---Linksys Router---VT1005V

Does anyone have any idea how to eliminate the Router?
How do I make my ATA and WinXP friends?
