SOURCE: 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!)

SOURCE: How to get wi fi at home for itouch?

Your better bet is a wireless access point. It plugs into your router and can be configured to be transparent to the network so that any IP address you get for your wireless device comes from the original router (better for networking).

At the blinkingly fast speeds of your Wireless internet, "N" is a waste. Get the "G". Here's a link to the product I would use...it runs about $50. http://www.tplink.com/products/product_des.asp?id=116

I want to put a password. pls help me on this. thank you


Plug a CAT5 Ethernet cable into one of the output ports on the router and into you computer. Power up the computer and then power up the route. Open up your browser and type the following IP address into the location bar. http://192.168.11.1 Use "root" for the default login name and leave the password blank. If that does not work you will have to completely rest the router. Find the "init" button on the bottom or back of the router and push and hold it for 20 seconds. This will reset the router to the factory defaults. Now try to login again. once you are logged in to the router you will be able to set any of the security settings.

How to set up this router


Plug in a CAT5 Ethernet cable onto your computer and then into one of the output ports on the router. Make sure it is the output port and not the one that goes to the cable or DSL modem. Power up the computer and then power up the router. Open your browser and type this IP number into the location bar
http://192.168.1.1
that will open up the router. The default password is "admin" if it has been changed and you don't know what it is, you will have to push and hold the reset button on the router for 30 seconds. That will reset it to the factory defaults. Open your browser and try again. Once you are in, then follow the instructions and helps. Also take a look at this web page.

I can't hook up my PC with my wireless router how I can do this?


You could simply hardwire your computer directly to your router, unless you want to purchase a Wireless Card or USB. You will still need a computer connected to your Wireless router to act as a terminal to edit and set the settings on the router. Most regular routers use CAT5 (Ethernet) cord to setup their networks, which is what you should use.

Go to your local store and purchase 2 CAT5 Cables to connect one from your modem into your router and one from your router to your PC. Once you have set up your wireless router you can then access your router from anywhere in your house.

Good luck, if you need help feel free to comment.

Thanks,

How do i hook this router up wpn824v2


Your router is connected between your modem (Cable or DSL) and your computer. Connect the modem output to the WAN or Internet connector on your router. Connect any of the output connectors to your computer's Network Input. Log in to the router by (with your Browser) going to 192.168.1.1 ... after logging to router (login parameters in manual) set your Network Name (SSID) and set up Wireless security. I prefer using WPS-PSK[TKIP] for its ease of setup.

How do i hook up a router


Let's proceed first with the physical connectivity. Please follow the steps below:

1. Make sure that your computer is working when directly connected to the modem.

2. Connect the CAT5 cable of your modem to the WAN port of your GWA504.

3. You should have another CAT5 cable. That CAT5 cable will be connected to any one of the LAN ports on the back of that router.

4. Connect the other end of the CAT5 cable to the network card of your computer.

5. After the physical connection, just let me know and we will proceed with the next steps. Because your statement is very broad. We have to consider lots of things here. Please reply so that I could further assist you.

Set up


No. You do not need to have a computer connected via a CAT5 (Ethernet) cable to the router for a laptop to access the wireless signal.

However, to set up the router to broadcast that wireless signal or to alter some of the wireless security settings you will have to connect directly to the router with a CAT5 (Ethernet) cable.

If you need assistance connecting to that wireless connection, let me know. I have some instructions which can help retrieve the security information from the router so you can connect to the Internet via the wireless signal.

How do you hook up your netgear wireless router to your clear wire modem?


Hi Leon,

have alook at Clearwire's webpage (here), where they describe different setups for your router.
I personally would always prefer to connect the modem to the router via a cable. The cable you will need is an Ethernet (CAT5) cable and the connectors at the end look like this (compared to a phone cable:

e6394fa.jpg

You will connect the output of your modem with the WAN port of your router. This port is usually separated form the 4 other LAN ports, which connect to your computers, printers, etc.
(You didn't specify which router model you have, so I can't give you more details, but it should be very obvious, when you look at the back of your router.)

For the initial setup of your router, you should use a second Ethernet cable connected to one of the LAN ports of the router and to the Ethernet port of your computer.

If you need help with the wireless setup of your router, you have to look either in your manual of give me the details of your router (like the model and version, i.e. Netgear WGR614) and I'm happy to assist you.
