Question about Linksys Wireless-G WAP54G 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point
The OTC Wireless Bridge was setup to use IP phones and have our computers plug into the phones to access our network and the internet. When the wireless bridge was first installed I was able to plug right in and get access; I was able to ping and IP address, go to the internet etc. Once the IP phones were installed I am unable to get any connections on my laptop via the bridge. There were two IP phones installed, however, only one of the phone is working although both phones are configured exactly the same. When I try to plug my laptop into the IP phone that is working correctly it loses it's connection. The one IP phone that is not working is reading "finding IP card". Do you have any suggestions on what else I might try. Do I need to use a crossover cable when I connect the laptop to the IP phones to make it work? Thank you for your assistance. Ruth Lalputan
Alright I have good news and bad news the good news is: if you remove your IP Phones the setup will work again. Once it is working plug in one of your IP phones with Laptop plugged into the bridge. Once the IP phone is connected test if the Laptop remains connected. The use another Laptop with crossover cable to connect it to the IP Phone one question (is the IP Phone acting as a bridge between the OTC Router and the Laptop?)If it is it can pull an IP address if the OTC Router is a router and the IP phone is acting as a routed interface bridge. Once you get this to work duplicate the setup for the rest of you IP phones and laptops. BTW you do realize you are pummeling the router with RTP/UDP packets? I hope this helps Thank you, Shuttle83
