What is the error you're getting from the XBox? Log into the console with no game in the tray and go to the network settings and try to detect the network connection.
Also, did you get that router from Vonage? Their support page for that router is HERE: http://www.vonage.com/help.php?article=1087&category=103&nav=3 and may be able to provide you with additional information.

Yes you can have the setup in your workgroup in multiple ways.
Solution1:- The logic will be making your new wireless router to act as a wireless booster which will receive the signal from your old wireless Router and then retransmits the signal.But this needs some extra configuration on your new wireless router
1. You have to select the WDS ( wireless Distribution System) mode in the new wireless router. 2. Set the same SSID on the new wireless router. 3. In the new wireless router config page , search for the wireless signals and select your old router from that list.
The WDS mode tells the new wireless router to send/receive the wireless signal to the old wireless router.
Connect your old wireless router LAN interface to a network switch through a CAT5e UTP cable and the new wireless router to another port of the switch (use a cable which can be extended to the other room where you want the new wireless router to be placed).
Configure the same SSID you have set in the old wireless router.
Consdier first that both devices are NAT firewalls and your ISP probably only allows one address. So you would need to put one behind the other. This may not work like you plan. PCs behind the second will not be seen on the LAN by PCs on the first.
The N1 is a very good router. Consider relocting it to a more central location.
Another trick is to locate it near a central wall if it is block. By adding 1 remote antenna and drilling through that wall witha short antenna cable you can get much better coverage on the other side.
It could also be an ethernet problm 1. Power down SMC, plug WAN of SMC to LAN of router and power up SMC. If both devices show link lights and activity the hardware is OK. If not you need a "crossover" cable.
You should check the possibility to connect to homegroup network. I have Vista home OS and I can use router to connect to internet but I can not connect to other PC runned windows 7, I can see them but without connection. I had found on a forum that Vista home version can not interconnect in homegropu network.
This is likely because out of the box, the firmware for this unit doesn't support WPA2 and even certain variants of WPA. I recommend: configure router for WEP or even open (i.e. unencrypted) connection, connect unit, go to setup/update firmware and let it update from network, power cycle, reconfigure your router for WPA or WPA2 security, attempt to reconnect unit to wifi. The updated firmware supports more formats and may allow your new router's config to work. You can also try doing the firmware update over the wired LAN port. Hope this helps.
1- set up router trough desktop
2-run program for wireless, after it gives you the IP ( which it already has, set user name and password for protection)
3-set up the laptop as a "Shared folder" along with the printer if there is one.
Describe to me exactly how you are set-up. Include the IP addresses of each device and exactly what ports are being used on each device. Could like an IP mistake or in some cases an X-over cable is still required IF your switch does not have does not have a x-o button on it. But that depends how things are connected. These are the 2 most likely but need the above info to diagnose.
Well fastest, quickest and dirtiest would be to get a network cable plug it into the back of the thompson router and DMZ the MAC address or IP address the Xbox pulls.
That's the fastest, quickest and dirtiest.
For reference on your router, look up DMZ in it's manual and follow the directions. Go into the Xbox and have it give you either the MAC address or the IP address it pulls. Enter that information in the DMZ and you should be set.
You didn't post a model number so best I could do is give general directions.
connect the computer to the Voice terminal VT1005v( WAN port)<---PC and check the ip address on the computer which should be "192.168.102.X". Open the web interface of voice terminal ( type in " http://192.168.102.1/admin.html " in the address-bar of your internet browser ). you can see the Restore Factory Defaults button and click on it. So you can reset the device. After that, reboot the your whole network.
Connect the LAN port on the Barricade to the WAN port on your wireless router. The Barricade should be "plug-and-play",
i.e., no need to configure it. Similarly, the WAN port on the wireless-router is plug-and-play, so it should automatically get an IP-address from the Barricade.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Then, start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router. Run the "Wired Network Setup Wizard", and then the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard". When you're done, then your "wireless" device(s) (iPod Touch, laptop, XBox360) should be able to make a wireless connection.
