Sunrocket VOIP Configuration Problems 

by on June 4, 2008

Q: I have this sunrocket like Vonage which I am trying to hook up through the internet so I can make calls over the internet. I also have beklin wirelss g router and am not able to figure out how to set this up correctly.

A: I can certainly agree that it can be confusing. I have Vonage and I am hoping that I never have to disconnect and reconnect. I am going to make this as easy as possible. I looked at Sunrockets equipment and the setup looks identical to the Vonage setup.

1. Make sure that all equipment is turned off.

2. You should have one cable going from the routers internet/wan outlet to the ethernet port on the modem.

3. Connect another cable from a LAN port on the router (any of them between 1 and 4) to the back of the computer (the one on the computer will look like a phone outlet.

4. Plug your power cord into the modem and wait for the modem to power up so that the lights on the front panel are lit.

5. Now take the ethernet plug from the back of the modem and plug it into the LAN port on the back of the gizmo.

6. Now take the cross over cable and plug one end into the modem ethernet port to the WAN port on the back of the gizmo.

7. Next take the phone cord that is connected to your phone and plug the other end into the Phone outlet on the back of the Gizmo.

8. Plug in and boot up your router and wait for the lights on the front panel to come on.

9. Boot up your computer.

I hope that this clears things up for you.


Record Phone Calls Using Vonage 

by on July 11, 2006

Q: I have Vonage for my home phone service. It connects my phone through the cable modem. Is there a way to record my telephone conversations with this kind of setup?

A: I’d suggest going over to http://www.oxid.it and download a program called Cain. Once you have the software installed select the “Sniffer” tab and then select the “VoIP” tab. The program will directly capture & save the phone calls to your hard drive. The program saves the outgoing audio in the left channel and the incoming on the right channel.

There is, however, one catch with this program. Your Vonage adapter and your computer have to be on the same network and connected together by a hub not a switch. If you do not know the difference between a hub and a switch or how to tell them apart please stay tuned as we will be answering that question shortly.
