Hi Joe,

That just depends on how you want to connect with your laptop.
If you need wireless access, then you have to use the WRT54G, because the RT31P2 has no wireless capabilities.
If you are connected via ethernet cable, then you can simply take the WRT54G out.

If you like to read up on different scenarios, here is my favorite page.

Enjoy!

HOW do i use wps on my ipad with WNR2000


Depending on your browser, download or display the pdf of the WNR2000 manual ( http://documentation.netgear.com/wnr2000/enu/202-10397-01/pdfs/FullManual.pdf ). The manual might also be found on the CD that came with the router.Follow instructions Chapter 2 Page 7 to enable/setup WPA2-PSK (AES).Make sure you SAVE/APPLY the settings before proceeding. Follow instructions Chapter 2 Page 17 to Disable Router's PIN. When you do, make sure you leave the box checked to "Keep Existing Wireless Settings".Make sure you SAVE/APPLY the settings before proceeding.Here's a work-around ff the above doesn't fix the issue for you. Sorry I don't have iPad-specific instructions, but I don't have access to an iPad/iPhone at the moment. I've done the following on iPads, iPhones, Android phones and tablets, Windows phones and PC's - it works on virtually all Wi-Fi-capable devices..:
Instead of letting your iPad find the network and trying to connect with the password, try manually creating a new Wi-Fi network connection by typing in your Wi-Fi network name (SSID), selecting WPA2 (AES) encryption and entering the Wi-Fi password your configured in STEP 2 above.Please note: You'll have to forget the Wi-Fi network in your iPad's settings if you keep your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) the same as it is currently.

Ive currently got the netgear DGN 1000 & ive currently got a HP notebook but the HP wireless network assistant does not list this modem so cannot connect, can you help?


Check the following and then try the solution:

1. Do you have other wireless devices connected?

Yes, go to solution #1, if you know the SSID then try solution #2
No, go to step 2.

2. Are there any wifi connection listed in range?

Yes, go to solution #1, if you know the SSID then try solution #2
No, go to step 3

3. Go to a location were you know there is a wifi connection, can you see this connection in the wireless assistant?

Yes, go to solution #1
No, go to solution #2

#1 my thought is you are not sure of what the SSID is, so place the laptop next to the Netgear router and chose the best wifi signal to connect to in wireless assistant.

#2 There is a switch/or button on the laptop to turn on the wireless. It is normally somewere on the side of the laptop, turn it on and it should glow blue. Now try to connect to your router.

Hope this helps

You are right, if your laptop has no issues except in your home, your laptop is not the problem. You should read the "Communication Failures" section of my tip entitled "Understanding Wireless Networks". You can read it here. You should troubleshoot this starting with the obvious... Are you in Range? Is there a device causing interference (cordless phones, other access points, microwaves)? If there are other WiFi Access Points in your range, verify that they are on a different channel than your router (you can do this with a free WiFi Scanner called "NetStumbler" or "InSSIDer"). If you follow my advice given in the article, and you still have issues, there is a possibility of the router's transmitter/receiver starting to fail.
I hope this helps,

Hi, I am wondering how to send things from my phone onto my Sony Vaio Laptop via bluetooth. I was wondering how to activate the bluetooth on my Laptop, as I amm struggling to find a solution as to how I...


I use an HP Pavilion laptop so I don't know the exact setup of a Sony Vaio, however, I still believe I can be of some assistance. First, make sure your wireless is turned on. Depending on the year of your computer you may only have to touch the emblem of an antenna, press a button along the rim of your device, or enter the control panel and turn it on through your settings (Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Add A Wireless Device to Network). Depending on your version of Windows there may be some variations to this list of options to select. You may have to select Network Sharing Center before selecting Add A Wireless Device to Network.

If the bluetooth is built in you'll be able to search for other bluetooth devices from your computer. If it isn't built in then your system will never find a wireless device to add and you'll have to buy a bluetooth transmitter (Best Buy usually has plenty of good ones). Before you search place your phone in discoverable mode. Once your phone has been found click it and follow the instructions. Due to compatibility requirements this isn't guaranteed to work, your phone and computer stand a chance of not getting along. If this is the case then grab the data transfer cable from your cell phone's packaging (it looks like a charger but it plugs into the USB port instead of the wall) and connect your phone to your laptop with it.

Your computer should install the proper drivers for it automatically if they are available. Once that happens you can click on Computer (My Computer) and find your phone connected as external storage there. If you open it you'll be able to see all the files and folders on your memory card. From this point use the instruction manual that came with your phone so as to avoid removing or rewriting any important items in your phone's programming. This is by FAR much easier though a little less convenient.

I hope this fixes your problem ;)

1. Each wireless device has to be allow to connect to the router via a specific IP address assigned by the router in its router table.
It also can setup a wireless device, such as a laptop or phone via a MAC Address ( Media Access Control) number that is assigned to almost every wireless device.
Here is an instruction set to follow to set up your wireless device in your router ( it is generic but works).


.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 ot 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

No internet connection


When connecting the devices make sure that you turn on the device in this manner: modem (wait for the lights to be solid) then router, then the computer.

Check if you can get online, if not then follow the steps below:

1. Open a web browser and type this in the address bar: 192.168.1.1

2. Then you will be in the setup page of the router. You need to know what is your connection type obtained from your ISP.

If DHCP, internet connection type should be: Automatic Configuration - DHCP should be selected.

If PPPoE, select PPPoE and type the username and password provided by your ISP.

3. Then save the changes.

Once that the internet connection is working from the PC hardwired connected to the router, then check the wireless settings under the wireless tab. Take note of the SSID, wide channel, and the wireless security and preshared key.

Put those settings on the wireless adapter of the laptop and you should be able to get online.

I hope this works! Good luck!

What VoIP provider are you using?

Try connecting router directly to the modem and the laptop to the router and see if your laptop can get out onto the internet. If you cannot, then your router might not be handing out IPs to the devices on the internal network. You can enable the DHCP server on the router using the administrative web interface at http://192.168.1.1.

If you can get out onto the internet with your laptop behind your router then look at defining a DHCP reservation on your router for your VoIP phone and then forwarding the following to your phone:
5061 UDP
5060 UDP
10000-20000 UDP

These are common ports amonst the VoIP providers.

Hope this works, if not we'll give it another shot.

Hookup with Vonage device


I am going to attempt to give you a solution here. But you must understand a few things before I begin.

First, I would like to clarify that if you have Time Warner internet service, you are on Cable Internet. Not DSL. (This makes a world of difference when it comes to using a router.)

Secondly, you did not specify model numbers of your devices. Therefore I am assuming that you are using the following devices:
If this is not the correct equipment, continue to follow the instructions but be dynamic and adapt my instructions to the equipment you have. It should be similar enough that you shouldn't have any problem easily doing this.

This instruction set is going to begin from a point that is assuming that we're installing all of this equipment from the standpoint of a completely new installation. From the ground up.

Let's begin.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UNPLUG AND POWER DOWN ALL OF YOUR EQUIPMENT INCLUDING THE CABLE MODEM, ROUTER, PC AND VONAGE BOX. Do not power on any of the devices until instructed to do so.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.) Connect your cable modem to the cable from the wall.

2.) Find the ethernet port on your cable modem. Connect the blue ethernet (CAT5) cable to the ethernet port.

3.) Plug the other end of the blue ethernet cable into the "Internet" port of the router. (Older routers used to also call this a "WAN" port.) It is the only port that is seperated from the rest of them.

4.) Connect another ethernet cable to port 1 of the router.

5.) Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to the network port of your PC.

6.) Connect yet another ethernet cable to port 2 of the router.

7.) Connect the other end of this ethernet cable to the ethernet port of the Vonage box.

8.) Plug in the power adapter of the cable modem. Wait 1 minute for the cable modem to acquire it's signal and set up the connection to Time Warner.

9.) Plug in the power adapter of the Linksys router. It should only take 15-20 seconds to set itself up. (If you have made any configurations to the router prior to this, I recommend pressing and holding the RESET button for at least 10 seconds to give you a fresh configuration state to start with.)

10.) Plug in the power adapter to the Linksys PAP2 VOIP Phone Adapter.

11.) Power on your PC. You should have an internet connection with it.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You see... As I read the configuration you described, I don't think that you're using a PAP2 phone adapter. You said that you connected the "vonage device" to both your modem and your PC. This is not possible with the PAP2 adapter as it only has ONE ethernet port.

I am led to believe that you are actually using the Linksys WRTP54G which is essentially the same thing as the WRT54G, but with Vonage support built-in.

If that is the case, then you will not need to use the WRT54G router. Instead, follow the instructions that I gave you assuming that the router and the phone device are combined into one device. (The ports will still be labeled the same.)

Download the installation guide for the WRTP54G from the product page link I just gave you. You'll find the link to the User Guide on the right-side panel. This will make everything clearer for you if you do indeed have that router instead of the PAP2 phone adapter.

If you continue to be confused, please let me know. DO NOT just give me a poor rating without asking more questions. I am here to help you solve your issue. Not have my rating decreased just because someone is too confused or lazy to ask more questions.

I'm happy to help you. :)

Good luck and let me know what the outcome is. (And please be sure to list your exact model numbers in the future!)
