Vonage Has anyone else experienced this problem: when we make outgoing calls, we get

Has anyone else experienced this problem: when we make outgoing calls, we get a dial tone but after dialing the number, all we get is silence (can't hear the phone ringing at the other end). The phone rings at the destination and when they pick up, they just hear silence.

Their phone line seems to get 'disconnected' for a few minutes after this happens - they can't make any outgoing calls and if I call them from a non-Vonage phone, we get their BT (or similar) voicemail that is at the exchange. After the exchange 'resets' their number, they can get our number by using 1471 and can call us back. When people call us on Vonage, everything is OK - audio works fine both ways.

I've been discussing this with Vonage on email (because I can't call their customer service number...) but they just suggest different ways to reboot the router and our ADSL modem.

Initially, this only happened with outbound calls to a few UK numbers but now we can't call UK numbers, Irish numbers, US numbers, ... Before we started having this problem, we had 12+ months of Vonage UK service with no problems.

Our setup/configuration is:

1. Location: Bangkok, Thailand with a Worcester number (01905) on Vonage UK
2. ISP: TRUE internet ADSL connection
3. Speeds: 2.5Mbps down, 512 bps up but international bandwidth is restricted in/out Thailand so we're lucky to see anything like that for international connections (see speed test results below)
4. Modem: SMC Barricade SMC7804WBRA ADSL Modem/ router/ wireless access point
5. Vonage adapter: Linksys RT31P2
6. Network: ADSL line > Barricade > Linksys (via wired connection). PC is connected to Barricade via wired connection and I also use the Barricade's WiFi connection for my laptop
7. Issues: See above - can't make outgoing calls
8. Speed test results:

Packet discards: 0.0 %
Packets out of order: 0.0 %
Number of supported Voip lines: 2
Estimated MOS score: 3.9

The speed test shows our QOS as very poor in this result but I've run the test a few times and in some cases it comes back good. The upload and download speeds also vary a lot when I run the test but I'm running it at a peak time in Thailand so congestion on the ADSL line or international gateway is probably causing that. The jitter also varies from 4ms to the 9.4ms shown here.

The problems with our Vonage connection occur at any time of day so I assume they are not related to the quality of the internet connection.

Thanks for any advice or help you can give!
