Re: [Equipment] Cant Get Internet Connection to Vonage Adaptor f

Are you connecting the Mac's NIC to the VDV22-VD WAN interface (the blue jack) or to the VDV22-VD LAN interface (the yellow jack)? You need to connect to the VDV22-VD WAN interface.

If you have connected the VDV22-VD WAN interface to the Mac's NIC and it still does not work, you may need to use a cross-over cable for the direct connection. I don't think that the VDV22-VD WAN interface does auto MDI/MDX negotiation, and without the cross-over cable, you are connecting TX to TX and RX to RX. The cross-over cable will properly connect TX to RX and RX to TX.

I am connecting it to the WAN interface and when i plug it up, on light stays orange and the other light blink greens and then turns solid green.

I am going to get at crossover cable in the morning and see what happens. I will let you know.

Thanks for the response

Hey I went and bought a crossover cable form BestBuy today! And all is well! The Vonage adaptor works like a charm! Thank you so much for your help! I've posted this on 4 different forums and you are the only one that replied!

Not so sure about that this morning. I just got through "fixing" a DHCP problem that had me up all night.

I was on the phone and suddenly it just disconnected, and when I looked at the Vonage RTP300, it was searching for a DHCP server, and not finding one. I could release and renew Windows PCs with no problems, but the Vonage router (a Linux box) and my SamKnows monitor (also a Linux box) could not get DHCP IP addresses.

I put "fix" in quotes because I just got it working by using a router for the DHCP, but my Windows server's DHCP service still won't provide DHCP services to Linux boxes. I think probably a recent MS update did something that prevents the MS DHCP service from working with anything but Windows boxes, but it took several days to show up (until the RTP300's DHCP lease expired). I may not even bother to investigate it further since my Zonet router/print server's DHCP server still works OK.
