Heres the deal. Modem and Router(Apple Airport Extreme) are in the kitchen. We have two offices in separate rooms. Is is possible to use wireless base stations, or connect two routers together, and then hook the Vonage router into that? That would give us the ability to use Vonage with our network without having to disable the in home wiring.

<modem, airport router> - - - - - - <wireless basestation, Vonage router>

Sounds like something worth trying - i see the Airport Extreme supports network bridging, and that would be the networking requirement for the basestation the Voip router plugs into to allow it to access the wireless network of the Airport in the kitchen. I've never seen this work (but I've never tried), but the theory is sound.

So course, you still need telephones cabled to the Voip router.... that doesn't help your 2nd office.


(Kitchen)Modem -> Airport ~~~ wireless bridge ~~~ (Office1)airport in bridge mode -> Vonage router -> telephone

Office 2: ???? (could use a wireless phone handset with a base in office 1).

PostPosted: Tue Nov 22, 2005 5:40 pm    Post subject: Similar situation Reply with quote Back to top

I have a similar wireless configuration problem. I have Comcast broadband in my living room. The broadband modem is connected to a Belkin wireless router, the router is connected to the Vonage phone adapter (I know, backwards, but the only way it works), and then two separate Vonage phone lines are connected to two separate phones.

This all works, but I need to move one or both of the phone lines into another room in order to connect to a printer/fax. I live in an apartment, so I cannot disconnect my phone wires, so I was wondering what other options I have???

Could I put a wireless bridge in the other room and connect the Vonage phone adapter to that? Has anyone else been able to solve this dilemma?

Thanks in advance!

You should be able to get this to work fine in theory. Set it up like this

<ISP->Modem->Wireless Bridge>- - - -><Wireless Bridge->TA->Phones>

PostPosted: Fri Jan 27, 2006 6:19 pm    Post subject: WRTP54G as access point, not router? Reply with quote Back to top

A related question, I think.

My line is working fine with the following configuration:

<ISP->Modem->Belkin Wireless Router->LinksysVonage WRTP54G->Phones>

The Vonage-supplied WRTP54G wireless router's WAN connection is hard-wired into a LAN-side port on the Belkin. But since my cable connection enters the house on the opposite side as the phone, and I want to wire the WRTP54G at the phone entry point so all phone outlets in the house are Vonage, I want to have the two routers talk wireless. My limited knowledge suggests I'll have to make the WRTP54G into an access point only (i.e. not also a router), and hope that it won't insist on doing Voip over the WAN-side wired connection, but instead will be happy using a wireless LAN-side connection. Does this make any sense? Can it be done?

Thanks for any help. -Larry

It makes perfect sense, but I don't know whether it can be done. It might be easier and more reliable to get the WRT phone output wired into the house system from the other end of the house. Are there no phone jacks in the room where your cable modem is set up?

Could it be that easy? Indeed it was, just tried it.

I suppose there are reasons one should connect the Vonage incoming right at the house entry point, though I can't think of one just now.

I'm still curious if my original scheme would have worked.

Anyway, thanks much Steve.

PostPosted: Thu Feb 02, 2006 8:43 am    Post subject: bridge + adapter Reply with quote Back to top

The configuration I have is follows

cable modem <<hard wired from wan port>> to internet port of wireless router <<wireless link>> wireless bridge <<hard wired from lan port>> to lan port of wireless Vonage adapter

In this configuration, I'm not using the internet port on the Vonage adapter. I'm able to access internet in this situation, but no phone. Any ideas? The Vonage tech said adapter needs internet port to work.

As I was going to work today, I think the key is to put a router after the bridge, and then connect the internt port of adapter to lan port of the router.., I think that'd work. so my configuration would be

cable modem <<hard wired from wan port>> to internet port of
wireless router <<wireless link>> wireless bridge <<hard wired from lan port>> to lan port of router << hard wired from lan port>> to internet port of Vonage wireless router.

Or is it even possible to hook up Vonage adapter directly into a wireless bridge with one port? I have no option but this, unless I stick a router in the middle? Has anyone tried this?
