Dansie -

Many might recommend putting the Vonage router up front, but let me assure you that I am NOT one of them. The QoS on the WRTP54G is so useless I had better results turning it OFF.

I put my WRTP54G behind a "real" WRT54G router, running aftermarket firmware, and the difference is like night and day.

As to your issue, well, your testyourvoip numbers are the kind of results that would make other people cry tears of joy if they could get them. Connections do NOT get much better than what you have there. If I could get those numbers, my new theme song would be "Oh, Sweet Mystery of Life, at Last I've Found Youuuuuuu..." ;)

Seriously... if you are having choppy audio only when traffic is high on your Internet connection, you can place it squarely at the feet of inadequate QoS, or a bad device, because your connection does not have a problem if that's a typical test for you.

To properly set up QoS:

1. Determine your upload bandwidth by doing a test like
2. Go into your router's QoS, turn off automatic upstream bandwidth determination, and set it to about 95% of what your tested upstream bandwidth is. Be prepared to experiment with that number.
3. Set the MAC address of your Vonage device to HIGHEST, then set all other MAC addresses to LOW or MEDIUM depending on relative importance.

Do some test calls. If you find that the outgoing audio is perfect, up the "upload bandwidth" number a bit. Once things get a little choppy, lower the number to the highest number that works well, minus a few kbps.

And to anticipate your next question - no, you will not see manual upstream bandwidth OR MAC address QoS on a Vonage router (at least not on the RTP300/WRTP54G units. They try to determine upstream bandwidth automagically, and have no way of shaping traffic except a few clumsy port-based fields. The router cannot determine upstream bandwidth at all, few routers can, so QoS ends up being a waste of processor cycles.

Net result: If you want real QoS, you need a real router. The Vonage WRTP54G/RTP300 gizmos are nice little units, and do great voice, but as routers, no so much. I recommend the Linksys WRT54GL, loaded up with aftermarket firmware you can find at - read the forums at and for (LOTS!) more information.

Have you tried just turning your computer(s) off and testing calls with Vonage?
Here's a program that will tell you if the computer is using any bandwidth at all.
