Q: New router, voip phone adapter, modem connection


I recently got a new router and need a diagram or picture to connect it to the following: VOIP phone adapter, modem, computer. Or however I connect all of this stuff to get the router to work without losing Internet (high speed cable) or phone usage.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all.

I have a "brand new" V92 modem (I know, with all VOIP options today, that sounds stupid).

I'd like to use dialer.exe or other free/native software to dial out local phone numbers. Olitec (the modem constructor) provided me a driver for Vista that seems to work good in Seven. Once installed, I can dial, my friend's phone rings, when he pics it up I can hear him, but he can't hear me. Some times I hear my own voice in my head set instead (a distant echo). My mic is working ok. I know that cause other applications can use it.

I'd also like to see an incoming call on the screen. Can that be done ?


A:Using a V92 modem to call local phone numbers (no VOIP)

Depends on the "voice telephone" software you have and what it's capabilites are. A PC makes a poor voice telephone and for that reason the "hot" thing to use it for a voice phone back in the old XP days has diminished to the point dial-up modems are not even offered as an option on many new PC's.

I'm trying to disable access for a voip phone which is connected through my router at home. I'm currently using a TP-LINK Wireless Router WR340G. The phone is a Samsung SMT-W6100.

My basic understanding is that I should block the port which the phone is using - but i'm not sure if:

i) it is the port I should be trying to disable
ii) how I can do this on my router and
iii) how to find out which port the phone is using.

Would any of you be able to guide me through this? I'm quite a beginner when it comes to router settings/networking so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance for your time.

A:Blocking voip phone from router?

Unplug the VoIP phone, it's blocked 100%!

You can restrict the MAC address of the VoIP phone in the router's configuration, that will also prohibit connections.

My work phone (VOIP) has an IP address for one network, but my ISP is on another network. I have a router but the VOIP phone doesn't seem to connect. My internet connection through the router is solid. How do I configure the router to allow the VOIP phone to access my work network through my home internet connection?


A:Solved: VOIP phone + Linksys router

Read other 7 answers

I don't know if this is possible, but this is what I want to do:
Have the dsl modem router and linksys voip connected together.
I want the voip router to assign dhcp and the dsl modem router to
be used to get internet access but not assign dhcp (I think)

This is why I want it:

I have 8 wireless linksys cam's configured through the voip router.
Setting the cam's to the modem router didn't work well because of
AT&T's firewall cannot be disabled, only modified to open ports. It's frustrating as when I opened the ports for the cam's, a consistant "an unknown error has occured". So I opted to just set up the cams on the linksys router as the cams are also linksys as well. Thus, figuring they would communicate better anyway.

This is my problem:

When I connect the dsl modem router to the
WAN port on the linksys router, the dsl modem assigns it
a fixed LAN ip. What I want is the linksys router to pull a WAN ip so I can log into my cam's remotely from my laptop at home.
No matter what I do, disable dhcp on linksys router, set linksys router on the dsl modem router to DMZ, set linksys router to bridge mode.....
nothing seems to work.

All I want to do is configure the linksys router so that when I go to my internet explorer on my laptop and type in "99.xxx.xxx.xx:1024 to connect to the cam's. But when I go to linksys router config. pages to see the status, the internet ip is which is a LAN address assi... Read more

A:DSL Modem Router Voip

by voip i assume you mean a Phone that uses the internet? as VOIP is just a protocol.
If i am correct in thinking your getting a phone then depending on what you are getting you will be able to connect it over a wireless connection (if you have one) or via a LAN port on the back of your modem.
If your LAN port is already in use then you could by a switch that basically will give you 4 extra ports.


hope this helps!

My laptop is the only computer I have and I would like to set it up in the following manner if possible.

I currrently use the ATT wireless Mercury 885 air card but I will be changing to Verizon high speed FIOS shortly. I would like to use a WRT310n router with the laptop and add a VOIP modem from a company that will provide me with 2 new phone numbers. I do have the 802.11 abgn installed on the laptop. Will this configuration work ??????


A:Solved: Laptop with Router and VOIP Modem

When you get FiOS, they supply the router, and if you're using their TV service, you'll need to use their router. The TV Guide and On-Demand use the router, so you can't really lose it.

I have all of the above here, and what I did was as follows.

Connect the VoIP box to the Verizon supplied Actiontec MI424WR LAN port.
Connect my ZyXEL 802.11n router to one of the LAN ports, configure it for fixed WAN addressing, and put it in the DMZ of the MI424WR router. This allows you to do all the configuration stuff using the secondary router like port forwarding, etc.

This works for me, hopefully it'll work for you as well.

hi alarm guys just installed a new alarm into my house today using the phone line for monitoring and it has filter installed. so today when i got home tried to use my internet connection but nothing so tried to reset and still nothing .. ... i have had this same thing happen to me before when i tried to insall a voip into the phone socket and it killed my adsl connection but once i disconnected the voip and reset the adsl modem it was fine .... so now i have the same problem with my alarm .
any ideas on what i have to do .. im just not sure what the problem is and i would like to have my voip and alarm working on the phone lines as well as my adsl
thanks if anyone can help me


A:Why do i lose my adsl connection when i plug in the phone line of my alarm of my voip

I think you're going to find that the alarm system is the sticking point here. DSL/ADSL requires high frequencies to be transmitted over the phone lines, and the side trip into the alarm panel and back is probably attenuating the signals. I think you need to talk to the alarm company and have them resolve the issue.

The VoIP issue is probably a DSL filter issue. You may need to improve your wiring and split the alarm off after the DSL signal. The easiest way to do this would be a DSL splitter, and connect the alarm to the analog output of the splitter. I'm also a big confused about the VoIP, that would normally be connected after your DSL modem, not to a separate phone line.

Purchase a DSL splitter and install it at the telco service entrance. Run a direct line from the DSL port on the splitter directly to the DSL modem. Connect all of the other phone instruments to the telephone output of the DSL splitter. All of the DSL analog side wiring should be CAT3 or better twisted pair from the telco service entrance to the DSL/ADSL modem. You can use one of the twisted pairs in CAT5 cable if you have that on hand.

Hi everybody,

I have a high speed cable connection at home. It has been working fine.

Recently I took a VoIP(voice over ip) connection for my home. Now my cable connection to my PC is like this ------- the main cable from the cable modem is connected to the WAN port of the VoIP modem. And another cable is connected from the LAN port of the VoIP modem to my PC. Now since I took this connection I cannot connect to some servers. As it feels like that my PC is behind some sort of firewall or something because of the VoIP modem.

I'm just wondering whether this problem can be solved by using a router/hub or not?

Please provide your suggestion.

Thanks for the help.

A:High Speed connection through VoIP modem

You are correct, there is a NAT layer in the VoIP box. What I did to solve this issue with mine is configured the VoIP adapter to put my router in the DMZ of the VoIP NAT layer. That allows full access through to the outside world. You don't need more equipment, just a different configuration inside the VoIP adapter.

The make/model of the VoIP adapter would be a big help here.

I have a Palm IIIxe with a 56k palm modem on it. It works fine when I connect it to a phone line. I would like to use it when I am in the middle of nowhere with my cell phone. Is there an adapter to do this? The phone is a Samsung SCH-3500. I found adapters for the phone to hook up to a PCMCIA slot card or serial port of a mobil device to use the phone as a modem. I don't want to do this though. My palm already has a modem on it. Maybe some cheap thing to hook to the ear piece and a normal rj11 wire coming out of that?

Any info will be appreciated.

Windows devices can connect independently, using the PdaNet+ Desktopo as can Android. Apple also, but must use the above Automatic Proxy.

I have a wireless broadband router (linksys WRT54G). I recently signed up for vonage, and got a VoIP router (linksys RT31P2), that doesn't have wireless.

Would it be better to plug in the cable modem to the VoIP router, then the
wireless router into the VoIP router:
Cable modem---VoIP router---Wireless router-----Computers
or to get an all-in-one VoIP/Wireless router like the WRTP54G:
Cable modem---VoIP/wireless router---Computers

Would there be advantages/disadvantages to either?


A:Single VoIP/Router/Wireless combo or seperate VoIP and Wireless router

There would probably be less configuration hassles with the all-in-one solution. OTOH, you have a bit more flexibility with the two boxes, I currently have my Vonage adapter hooked to the LAN side of my router, caused too many glitches when it was between the modem and the router.

Our friends at TWC are again raising rates... this time the rental of our Internet Modem/Phone/Wireless Router will be going to $8.00 (from $5.99).... So its time to again look at the payback to buy my own, as this time I believe that the Hardware has matured to the point that buying the device will likely not become obsolete in short term, and it is DOCSIS 3.0 compatible. The latest device we've been renting is an Arris TG862 which serves as the Wireless Router, Internet Modem, and Phone Modem as we have phone service too. So.... The TG862 appears to be reliable and though it does not have external Antennas, the signal appears adequate through our townhouse. The question is does this Arris TG 862 compare favorably with other products available? I've not yet found any good comparisons of this device to other products... Have you had any experience using this Modem or is there something else I should be look at? And I should also consider buying separate Modem / Wireless Router / Phone Modem too.... Instead of the Arris's All In One Box...... Any suggestions will be appreciated!

OK here is what i want to do. i want to hook up my voip adapter ( the box that usually connects to the telephone at one end and my router at the other) to something that will connect to hotspots. one of Vonage's advertising pitches is that you can take the vonage box anywhere there is broadband service so i know that this is allowed. i.e. i could do exactly what i want to do by connecting the vonage box to any router via ethernet cable (the vonage box has ethernet and phone jacks on it) but i want to do this wirelessly. i know there are wifi voip phones on the market but i still want to try it this way.

While, when I am using any ethernet connections dirctly from the router, it works fine. It becomes a large problem when you are watching a video or something from a laptop WiFi connection.

Does it have to do with any port forwarding/triggering?

Hi, we have acquired the Cisco UC520 phone system, however we do not have the user name and passwords to login and program. Does anyone have the steps to go through a backdoor to default the system? It is out of warranty so Cisco will not help. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have an unsolvable problem with my router that results in random disconnects from Xbox Live. I want the 360 to bypass my router by plugging it directly into my modem. Is the correct solution to buy an ethernet network switch hub, plug this into the modem and then plug the router and 360 into the hub? Can anyone please advise what I should be using?

Thanks in advance.

A:Modem Connection to 360 and router

no that's not correct. you must use modem--router--otherstuff unless
you want to ONLY use modem--one.box

For work I was given a modem, which they wanted me to hook up directly to my home internet. However, I live in a town home and do not have direct access to it. Instead I have to use a port that I have in my wall. When I plug my modem into the wall the VPN does not light on the modem, which I assume is because I have blocked access as we need to register all our devices using the MAC address. The modem I have is a Cisco 881. Is there any way to find the MAC address if not listed on the device itself?

I just set up a two computer wireless LAN. One machine running WinME is wired to the router, the other W2K machine is wireless about 100 feet away.

Everything works well, I can shut both machines down and restart and it all still works.

However, after shutting down the machines over night and restarting in the morning, the router won't respond. I can't access the router with IE. If I shut down both the modem and router and the machines and reboot the modem then router then the machines it'll work.

On all the other networks I've dealt with, the modems and routers are always left on.

What should I be checking here? Up till now I've never had any problems with this type of setup.

The modem is a Qwest issue Actiontec GT701 while the router is a Linksys wireless 11MB.


A:DSL modem/router connection

It would be helpful to determine if the problem is with the modem or the router.

Can you disconnect the router and connect directly to the modem.
Then leave that computer on overnight.

If there are still problems it would point to the modem.
Otherwise I would start suspecting the router.

Hello, good morning and thank you for reading

I have been experiencing drops in my wired internet connection and a google search brought me to your forums.

It seems to disconnect more often either during a call on my voip phone (a snom) or shortly after - as if a surge of usage makes it drop out?

It is currently working, so, as read on other similar threads, I shall post the ipconfig results:

First, thank you for everybody who will take a time to help me.

After power outrage, I cannot set up my modem+router internet connection. I've restarted both several of times, different cable configuration with no luck. I will post my ipconfig /all, first is with router so no connection:
