Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Lose the internet signal frequently. Vonage now set on and I can't afford to having to reset the router constantly. I have a t54g and wonder if I need to change my router. I only have a main computer, laptop and vonage on it.

Do you have cable TV also? If so, how many TVs are hooked up. Sounds like you have signal loss. I had the same problem. Also, if you have another coax cable lying around, try changing it out (from the wall to the cable modem, cables can be a big issue with this).

Dropped Connections using SMCWBR14-N4


1. check with you ISP to get a line condition it could be a physical issue at the drop if it is a DSL line. If it is a cable connection it could be what is called a collision effect.
2. If you have your unit by any electronics or if your location of your router is near a device that will interfere with the signal this could be the issue.
3. Check with Vonage and see if there is an IP conflict give them the experience that you have with all details and have them check there server. this could be the issue. There server could be dropping packets due to capacity overload or a major switch issue.
4. check the manufacturers website for firmware updates for you router.

How should the D-link be setup to work with comcast and vonage? After I set vonage or internet do not work. I tried the comcast modem to d-link and d-link to vonage.


If you want to RECEIVE telephone-calls:

COMCAST ADSL/CABLE modem <---> VONAGE <---> wireless-router

Turn each piece off.
Turn on the COMCAST modem, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a "steady" pattern.
Turn on the VONAGE router, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a "steady" pattern.
Turn on the D-link router, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a "steady" pattern.
Restart the computer that is connected to the D-link router,
and you should have Internet access.

I have vonage telephone hooked up to my pc.how do i install my wrt54g router,what wires go where?


Who is your ISP. I think your modem is connected to the Vonage and Vonage is connected to the computer. If that is the connection then you can disconnect the computer from the vonage and connect the router there. From the vonage connect to the internet port of the router. then connect your computer to the router. Check if that works. If you are connecting the router to the modem, then you will need to set up the router as per the modem set up or type of ISP. Click Here for step by step solutions

My Internet keeps dropping and coming back on. The cable light on the modem goes off and then starts blinking and comes back on - then a little while later goes off again. It has been doing this constantly...


Who is your provider? Vonage? I think id be on the phone to them to get this straightened out.

Not Vonage, call who ever is your cable service provider. And if you cant get them on the phone or via WWW, id be getting to the closest office and speak loudly until I got some satisfaction.

New computer (Vista) does not connect to internet. We have vonage VWR-VR D-link router and SBC Yahoo.


If you want this computer to connect wrielessly, go to Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center and click on Connect to Network. Select your router's signal from the list and click on Connect. It might require you to enter a network key. If you don't know your network key, call your ISP.

Linksys And Vonage Setup Through Comcast


Hi there,
I will try to make this as clear as possible, but if you have nay questions, please come back here and let me know.

You will need 4 things: 1 Surfboard Modem, Wrt54G, vonage router, computer. Put them next to each other without having plugged in anything ( no ethernet, no power cable!). Make sure that the WRT54G router is back to default settings by pressing the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds.

  1. Connect the power cable to the Modem. Power light on?
  2. If yes, connect the coax cable from the wall to the modem. (The one that looks like a TV cable)
  3. Connect the power cable to the router and wait until the power light is on steady.
  4. Connect your modem to the router. Plug an ethernet cable first into the modem and THEN into the WAN port (the label says "Internet") of the router.
  5. Plug an ethernet cable into one of the router LAN ports and connect it to your computer.
  6. Power on the computer.
  7. Open the Control panel and the Network Connections applet.
  8. You should see something called "Local Area Connection".
  9. Double-click on it and click the Properties button.
  10. Double-click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and make sure both radio buttons are set to "Obtain...automatically".
  11. Close all Windows by clicking "OK".(The second one takes a moment, because it applies the settings.)
  12. In the open window choose the Support tab and you should see your IP address, your Default Gateway (192.168.1.1) and your DHCP server (192.168.1.1)
  13. Open Internet Explorer and type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar.
  14. If you have reset your router to factory defaults, leave the username blank and type "admin" in the password field.
  15. On the first page (Setup), you should set the Internet Connection Type to "DHCP", unless you get a static IP from comcast (which i doubt).
  16. Go to the Wireless tab and ensure that wireless is enabled.
  17. Go to the "Security Tab - Wireless Security" and ensure that NO security is enabled for now.
  18. Open a new browser window and see if you can open a web page. Use an address that is unlikely to be in cache - try "http;//www.mit.edu" or so.
  19. Close your browser for now and come back here later to setup your wireless security etc.
  20. Now power on your vonage router and wait until the power light comes on steadily.
  21. Connect an ethernet cable from a LAN port of the router to the WAN port of the vonage router. (Plug it into the router first!)
  22. The vonage device should blink and establish a connection (Internet light is steady on). This might take a moment, because the device is downloading the newest firmware as well.
  23. Once the vonage router is on and the lights are steady (you didn't say which vonage device you have, so I can't tell how many lights there are), plug normal telephone ( not a wireless one) into the vonage router and see if you can get a call signal.
  24. If you were successful - sit back for a moment, enjoy the triumph and treat yourself with a nice drink!
There are a couple of things you still have to do, but the main thing is done.
  1. Make sure that you can access the internet from your wireless laptop before you start changing settings.
  2. Get a manual for the router here.
  3. Go back to your router's web page and set up wireless security (don't use WEP - that is not secure enough)
  4. You will have to setup QoS (Quality of Service), in order to prioritize your VOIP traffic, so calls go through clear even when you are surfing/downloading.
  5. You can setup QoS via IP or MAC address. Use your vonage router's MAC address (you'll find that on the bottom sticker), because it creates less overhead.
  6. If you plug in anything else into your vonage router, it might be on a different subnet and might not be able to communicate with your other computers (vonage router often use 192.168.15.x as their IP address)
  7. Once you're up and running and feel familiar with the settings for your router, I would change to a different firmware, because QoS is a crucial point for VOIP and I never was really satisfied with the Linksys firmware. I use tomato, for the simple reason that I was afraid of other more complicated firmware and you can always go back to Linksys, of you don't like it.
So...my fingers are bleeding now, but I hope this helped you out.
If so, please come back and let me know. Others might have a similar question.
If not, just tell me where you got stuck and we will go from there. According to the movie 'Galaxy Quest':
"Never give up, never surrender!"

Not saving my settings


Under normal circumstances, you should never have to reset your router. If you have problems, usually you unplug it, wait a few seconds and plug it back in. You DO NOT press the reset button. If you are not pressing the reset button and only unplugging it and still losing your settings, it is a faulty router, exchange, refund is your best option. If you ARE resetting it, then it is doing exactly what it is supposed to do.

Hope this helps.
