    Hello all, I am desperate for a solution. I purchased a new Abbra 2 alarm system with an Linkys ABN adapter. I have a Belkin Pre N router which works perfectly until I plug in the adapter. I have 4 wireless laptops that connect to the router.

    All the PC's connect and work fine until I plug in the ABN adapter. THe ABN adapter gets it's DHCP address and for about 60 seconds all our connected. THen the wireless computers drop the connection. I have tried to talk to Belkin, Next Alarm and have not been able to find a solution. Any suggestions.. Thanks

    I can't imagine the ABN adapter doing this, it's just another Ethernet device.

    Just on a lark, can you take that adapter to a friends network and see if just plugging it in creates the same issue on a different network?

    I really don't have any friends who have a network set up at home as we do. This is a special ABN VOIP adapter made by Linksys to work with the Abbra 2 alarm system. I am wondering whether my router does not work with this type of device? I am unable to find anything out from the user manual or from Belkin tech support last time I called.

    I'm pretty sure that adapter is just the generic Linksys VoIP adapter with firmware for the alarm system. I looked at those with my Concord system, but since dialup capability was free and that thing cost close to $100, I went for the dial-up option. :)

    Normally VoIP capability doesn't require any special configuration of your router, and I can't imagine that your Belkin should be unique in this regard.
