There will be 4 lights...


Power light indicates power supply is good...
Ethernet light indicates connection between modem and computer is good...
DSL light indicates connection between modem and telphone line is good... Also DSL light should be steady and it should not flash...

Does your router suports usb ports, normally routers do not support usb ports, please check if your router first suports usb ports

Yes you can use the Ethernet port/card in your Pc,
your isp should provide the Modem for you for broadband, connect the computer's Ethernet cable to the broadband cable modem.

Your good to go
(( if you have a NIC network interface card ))

Go under LAN setup and enable NAT and Firewall services. Then go to LAN configuration to enable the dhcp server. Set the Start IP range and ending address.

Just saw your post, so please accept my apologies for being almost a month late in responding, as I only joined this service on March 26th.

1. When a modem has both usb and ethernet, only ONE of the two should be used as most isp modems will allow one or the other.

2. Your Vonage should be discreet and not intermingled with the rest of your system. It would be better to connect the Vonage to a router, and not the router to the Vonage. iow, do not connect the Vonage modem between the isp's modem and your router.

3. denigration of service or slowdown is typical with VOIP if more than 2 systems whether telephone or other systems are connected, due to the ringer voltage splitting that occurs when you put more units on the Vonage, or any other Voip modem. One ISP solves this by providing separate outputs for Voip and Ethernet.

Observation of these rules should speed up your system.

One way would be to use a laptop or a desktop as a go-between from the usb modem to the cat 5 of the ethernet router.

Hi; I have used it with both ethernet and usb connections at the same time. I have never used the bridge, but I use it at home.

Try this ( I have XP SP3): Right-click on the monitors where the clock is (lower right corner), select "Open Network Connections". Go to the LAN connection and r-click "Properties". On the "general" tab select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". There you select "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server automatically" then click "Ok" until exit. Either Shut Down or Restart the PC. Check if this work.

On your connection LAN icon that normally sits at the bottem right hand corner, Right Click on it and select "Repair"

That should do the trick.
