Vonage Hello all, I've scrubbed this forum - and the Net at large - and I look to be an unfortunate

Hello all,
I've scrubbed this forum - and the Net at large - and I look to be an unfortunate pioneer in this issue. Here's the deal.

I've had Comcast cable modem service for about 5 years now. Except for the occasional hiccup, it works great. Rock solid - no issues.

So, I get the wise idea this weekend to stick it to The Man and get Vonage. I bought a WRTP54G, plugged in a phone to test and life is good. Luckily I had a friend who was about a half a day ahead of me and found out about the need to upgrade to 1.00.29. So, that's already in place. No need to redirect me to that as a solution :)

Anyway, I start making some calls and I noticed that **only** when I'm on a Vonage call that the light for synch w/ the head end (not the Ethernet port) on the cable modem goes out, accompanied by a nice audio tone to let me know that the connection is TU. So, this means I'm well aware of when the connection back to the head end drops.

About 5 - 10 secs after the connection drops, connectivity restores and life is good. At least for the next 10 - 60 seconds before the connection drops again. Repeat ad nauseam until I kill the Vonage call. Then, life is good again.

I can upload and download without issues, but even if my PC is off, the damned connection to the head end drops. My assumption is that there's something in Comcast's network that no likely the traffic and kills the connection as a result.

Of course, you try to talk to the script monkeys at "Tech Support" and they give you the "please remove your router and try again", "we don't support 3rd party routers - try enabling DHCP," and other such idiocy. Either way, I'm boned.

Luckily, I did not complete my LOA yet, but I wanted to make sure that I'm not alone in this issue. It's painfully obvious that Comcast will not own up to the issue, and I really want to get Vonage working.

Also, I'll be borrowing a buddy's previous Linky adapter (not sure of the model, but he just upgraded to the WRTP54G as well and is working just fine) this weekend to see if I can replicate the issue with that box. I'll post back with those results.

TIA for any thoughts/insight.
