    I am looking for setup help (to get Vonage Service) without getting two technical. Although the Vonage websites were not technical enough.

    I am in a Hotel in Colombia and am using their wireless connection to my laptop computer. I cannot get my LAN connection (from my computer ethernet card via ethernet cable to my WRTP54G router via the Internet (Blue) port) to give me telephone service.

    After enabling the LAN and wireless connections. I tried sharing them (Via MS ICS) with no luck and then tried to bridged the two connections together with no luck. (Someone said I need a bridge cable). I tried turning the firewall off and on. I tried dedicating the routers IP address in the Wireless TCP/IP settings.

    I have tried configuring the router setup and tried using the router as an access point to my computer with no luck.

    My router has the lastest (factory) firmware 1.00.60. I have not tried to upgrade the firmware.

    I have changed all setting to default and waiting for assistance.

    So you have internet via Wireless, and a spare ethernet to connect the WRTP.

    is the WRTP in gateway mode or routing mode?

    I guess you will need to set the router in to routing mode, and let the PC become the gateway via the wireless connection.

    turn off nat/firewall in router. make sure the gateway is set to the IP address of your laptop.

    tbh i dont know if this will work, but in theory it should as long as the router knows where to access the internet from (Gateway ie your Laptop)

    You are correct that is what I am trying to do and that is the theory. I have two questions.

    Where can I find the IP address of my laptop. When searching ipconfig/ I always find the IP address of the ISP that is sending the signal but not the IP address of the computer itself ?

    Also just to clarify I will be going into the Linksys router utility (Advanced Routing) and disabling Firewall & NAT. Then adding my computer's IP address when I learn what it is. Do I add the address to the Dynamic Routing or Static Routing area and do I need to fill in Destination Lan IP/Subnet Mask/Gateway/Hop Count etc..etc.

    While I am in the Routers Configuration Menu any other suggestions i.e. Wirelss off, DHCP ? MAC clone ? QOS ? ANy help would be appreciated. Thanks

    ipconfig /all

    i would at a guess say you'd need to use the static routing

    you might be able to get away with the main setup page and setting the Internet Connection Type to static IP address.

    tbh i am only guessing here as I dont know the full layout of the WRTP and what it can and cannot do.
