Vonage Reviews

Vonage First let me really, really thank the people that contributed to this thread.

First let me really, really thank the people that contributed to this thread. You allowed me to have the rare experience of actually finding relevant and useful information based on other users' experiences when attempting to solve my own problem. Too often one finds message board posts asking the same question as one's own without any useful responses. Really, thank you.

With the information posted in this thread, I was able to set up my Motorola VT1000v ATA in front of my Linksys BEFSX41 router/firewall using a single IP address from my DSL provider. Prior to this I had the ATA behind the router, dynamically getting its IP from the router's DHCP server as do all the other devices on my LAN. So I wasn't getting the benefit of the ATA's QoS throttling, and the setup was debatably causing my Vonage phone service to intermittantly not receive incoming callls. That remains to be seen as I test it over the next few days.

Here's my setup:
- Fixed IP DSL service (I really think this should work fine for those whose IP is dynamically assigned as well)
- Vonage service with the Motorola VT1000v ATA
- Software/Bootrom Version: VT20_01.1.14
- Config File: 5901225
- Linksys BEFSX41 Router/Firewall/DHCP Server
- Multiple hosts on non-routable LAN

VT1000v Configuration:
- Under "Basic Configuration", I specify the static IP address provided by my DSL provider. But I really think this should work fine for those whose IP is dynamically assigned by their provider as well. Configure your ATA accordingly. (Including, of course, PPPoE or specific DNS servers).
- This means that the ATA's WAN port will be routable provided in some form by your ISP. Packets will be routed from the ATA to your ISP's gateway.
- Under "Advanced Configuration", I have DHCP/NAT enabled.
- This means that the ATA's LAN port will be on its default non-routable netblock. The ATA's internal IP will remain its default and it will assign some other address within that block to DHCP clients that request it on this port. In this case we will only have one DHCP client, that being the Linksys' WAN port.

Linksys Router Configuration (should work on other similar makes/brands too):
- Plug the router's WAN port into the ATA's PC port.
- Configure the router to dynamically obtain its WAN IP using DHCP. This means that the router's WAN is the one and only client of the ATA's DHCP server, so it will be assigned some address in other than
- Configure your router to use some non-routable netblock on the LAN port other than In my case I used
- Configure your router to act as a DHCP server on that LAN port.
- Configure your LAN hosts to dynamically obtain their IP's using DHCP, or manually set them to something within your chosen LAN netblock if need be.

That should be it. So you now have the ATA acting as a DHCP server on the netblock with one client, that being your router's WAN port. Then you have the router acting as a DHCP server on your chosen non-routable LAN netblock, all of its clients being the hosts on your LAN. I like this solution because I still get to use the Linksys as my primary DHCP host, firewall, port forwarder, etc. (that's what I bought it for, after all), and I'm only using the ATA's DHCP and NAT services to facilitate the Linksys. And hopefully I'll now have better Vonage service and benefit from the ATA's QoS. :)
