Based on responses from this Forum, I went ahead, purchased and installed the Motorola SB5100 Modem and all the call quality I have been experiencing over the last 4 weeks is gone!!!

I will like to walk you through my experience over the last 4 weeks.

1. I started having call problems (person on other line will net hear me after a minute or two through a call)

2. I called Vonage on 2-01-05 and while on the phone with Vonage I speed tested my line (was using the Toshiba PCX1100 Modem) and got 636/235 kbps for my Download and Upload speed respectively. So Vonage concluded it was not my network speed. They then directed me to load a free software called Ping Plotter Freeware to track packet loss (P/L). Surely I was experiencing P/L from 10% to 40% and I could visibly see the increasing P/L at the same time the Vonage rep could not hear me. We resumed our call on my cell phone.

3. Vonage rep concluded that the problem was not with Vonage and that I should contact Comcast my Broadband Service Provider.

4. Contacted Comcast and they tossed me around saying that they are seeing good connection on their side. They advised me to contact my PC Manufacturer However, I started reading these Forums and periodically started using the "speed test sites" to check my speed. The Upload/Download numbers were all over the place. On 2-15-05 it was 2790/350, on 2-18 it was 130/223, and that's when I called Comcast again to complain about slow speed (no mention about problems with my phone service- do not give them a reason to say that that is not their service area). I was so relieved when the Comcas CS Rep told me that they will send out a tech to my house the next day because they were getting 3000=kbps from their location.

5. The next morning I checked my speed and it was now down to 83/15, then and there I concluded that something must be wrong with my Modem. Immediately the Comcast Tech came in later in the day he swapped my Toshiba Modem with his (Ithink it was an older motorola Modem) and the speed went to 3000+kbps Upload. He concluded I should replace my modem. After he left I connected my old Modem and speed tested it again and the speed was fine at about 2900 kbps upload. Despite that I went ahead and purchased and installed a new Motorola SB5100 Modem. I speed tested at two separate sites and I got 3915/348 and 4220/408 kbps respectively. I could clearly see a significant inprovement in accessing websites and most importantly, when I called using my Voip Phone I was able to talk for 28 freaking minutes without losing call quality or dropping the line!!! EUREKA. I also tested my Voip "Quality between my location and Boston" at athe Brix site (testyourvoip.com) and had a score of 4.4 out of 5!! Previously when I tested it before the Comcast Tech showed up, I scored 1.4 our of 5!!

The bottom line is that something screwy was wrong with my ToshibaPCX 1100 Modem and by giving a good speed test on one ocassion and a bad the next, it gave us a false indication of where the problem was.

I am a very happy camper now and will call Bellsouth first thing on Monday to not bother to show up to activated a Bellsouth Account!!

Hope this help others

BTW- Icalled Comcast to give them the MAC Number and they set it up and got me going. I got the Comcast Screen with the button to Download Software, but I just followed instructions from the Comcast Rep and got access to the Internet.
