Re: I have a new WRT546 and want to know if it will work...
The wrt54g is an above average router when it comes to features and WORKABILITY, and it has a long life too. if you dont want to give up this router that you have right now, try to look for a APA (analog phone adapter) that will provide your router / network a phone port for VoIP. an example is the PAP2 from Linksys also, but if you already have a VoIP service provider like Vonage, you may want to ask them for recommendations on what APA will be the best for their service.

Does your Ipad have WiFi capability? If your Ipad has only 3G capability then you can only access internet through your cellular service(i.e. at&t, verizon, t-mobile, etc.) provider with a data plan. In order to attach your Ipad to the linksys wrt546 router your Ipad must have WiFi capability
Hi sos1309, you can't do that. You need to get a VoIP router and hence an Voip service. Were you looking to use your phone for anything in particular?. I hope this helps. Please dont forget to rate and provide positive

Hi Youradickhead, I have experienced similar problems previously with Telstra and it was not due to the D-link as far as could verify. It seemed to me that Telstra was able to detect that you were using your internet connection for phone conversations and drop your line. Alternatively it may have to do with the filters that they provide. Try it without the filter, i.e. connect your modem cable straight into the socket (cable port).
You will probably need to set it up differently, I do not know the belking router, but normally the VOIP functions only work on the wan port of these routers so you should make the connections as follows:
Try connecting router directly to the modem and the laptop to the router and see if your laptop can get out onto the internet. If you cannot, then your router might not be handing out IPs to the devices on the internal network. You can enable the DHCP server on the router using the administrative web interface at http://192.168.1.1.
If you can get out onto the internet with your laptop behind your router then look at defining a DHCP reservation on your router for your VoIP phone and then forwarding the following to your phone: 5061 UDP 5060 UDP 10000-20000 UDP
These are common ports amonst the VoIP providers.
Hope this works, if not we'll give it another shot.
