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.

Your router is likely configured to not "Broadcast" its SSID name. You need to reconfigure the router to broadcast the SSID.

Can not attach my Ipad 3G to my linkys wrt546 router.


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

I just set up a new linksys wrt54g without a sim card. now my home phone wont work. but when i unplug the phone from the phone port my internet wont work? do i need a sim card for my home phone to work?


More information is needed about your setup.

Do you have:

cable modem <--> router <--> computer
and:
cable-telephone-box <---> telephone

or:

DSL-modem <--- VOIP adapter --> telephone
and VOIP adapter -> WAN port on WRT54G <--> computer

Please clarify.

First unplug your router, then unplug your modem and for 10 seconds. Next plug the modem back in and wait it to reboot(on mine this a series of 4 lights that light up in sequence, when the 4th light stops flashing, reboot is complete). Finally plug your router back in.

Call drop out after 5mins 30 secs


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).
Cheers.

Using just the VOIP part of a Belkin all in one router??


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:

INET ---> (wan) DLINK (lan) -----> (wan) BELKIN (voip) --> Phone
|--------> Wired Computers
|--- ) ) ) Wi Fi computers

On the DLINK enable DHCP and set a fixed IP for the Belkin router, either by setting the belkin in an IP outside the DHCP pool or setting it from the DHCP server.

This configuration workd well with a DLINK and a Motorola (vonage) router I have.

What VoIP provider are you using?

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.
