Vonage Power problems

I have a strange problem with my Vonage WRTP54G Vonage router. Once it is switched on it shuts off after 5-15mins and then it will not turn on. If i disconnect the power and power it back after an haour or so the same thing will happen. I checked the voltage of the power adapter and it reads 14v unloaded.

Could someone advice

pls email me at rikhye@yahoo.com if possible

Since it is their router, they will replace it for free. Just call them up and have them replace it. Dont put up with that garbage.

    Yea, whenever the internet goes out, it is usually on their end. You really cant do much at all to help this, except wait until you could contact them.

My desktop has a local area connection with limited to no connectivity. I had my desktop pc connected to a netgear n900 router and a vonage phone connected to the router's lan1 port. This caused i


Did this connection ever work before? I have a similar setup with Iristel and once in a while it goes down (Hurricane Leslie generated the problem last week).

Check whether the setup works without the Vonage device. This will tell you whether the problem is with your router or the Vonage box. If it works without the Vonage, the problem is in the Vonage box, you may find a good time to call Vonage for support.

I don't know whether the Vonage box (in my Iristel case it's a mediatrix 2 something) has to 'call home' before it lets your router set itself up.

If your router does not work without the Vonage, you have a simpler problem, the router is the issue. You can reconnect the Vonage and if the phones work, this confirms that the router is the problem. At least you can use the phones.

With the router, you need to log in to the admin screens and poke around until you find the problem. It is always a good idea to only change one thing at a time and always remember what changed immediately before the problem was noticed.

My linksys router WRTP54G starts flickering when it is about to connect. I have changed the power adaptor also Is the problem with router hardware or i need to change something else.


If the lights are flicking it could be a problem with the router itself. Lights do flash on routers to show activity which is normal.

Try factory defaulting the router. If that does not work then the router is likely bad.

Thanks!

Linksys router not turning on


First check your circuit breaker or fuses to make sure all are operating. Sometimes a power outage results in a line spike that burns out electronics.

If you are certain that you have power to the receptacles, then you masy want to try to put a claim into your power company for replacement of the electronics.

Internet connection problems


Sorry but that seems to be a pretty convoluted explanation. Here is how it should go.
Vonage unit connected to phone line(s) and cable modem. Linksys connected to Vonage box. Computers connected to Linksys.
Ethernet has a length limitation of about 300 feet before you need another switch (hub) or a repeater. Does your wire length exceed this?

I am getting a very slow connection suddenly through WRTP5G router


Try resetting you wireless adapter, sometimes that resolves the issue. You could also check your connection status and try to repair the connection there. Or turn off your PC then the router then the modem wait 10 minutes power up the modem after all the lights are lit turn on the router when all those lights are on turn on your PC, then recheck your connection status and repair if needed.

Vonage does not work with D-Link router


If you plugged a telephone into your D-link router, unplug it - that can not work!
You have to plug your vonage router (WAN port) into the D-Link (LAN port) and connect your phone to one of the LAN ports of the vonage router.

If you do not need the wireless capabilities of the D-Link, you can simply take that one out and only use your vonage router.

If you need more help, I would need more details form you:
Which vonage adapter are you using?
How is your setup (i.e. modem -> D-link -> vonage & computers)
What connections are you using (wire/wireless)?

You can also find help here.

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!)
