Vonage Hi :) I am experiencing a similar problem therefore I thought I would post



Hi :)

I am experiencing a similar problem therefore I thought I would post here and see if it generates some response and hopefully some help.

I am a very happy Vonage home user [happy because of the extremely great rates and service features that Vonage provides].

However, I am having some audio problems with my Vonage home phone.

When people call me, they often complain that the audio quality is low, sometimes choppy, echoes when they speak, and that they sometimes hear other conversations/music etc. I have also once or twice picked up audio difficulties on my end as well. I have even heard other people talking on the phone [they apperently couldn't hear us].

I am just opening a new business where I simply cannot have these types of difficulties for both legal and customer services reasons but I absolutely adore Vonage's options/services/prices.

My alternative is going with SBC which probably means that I will have DSL instead of Cable internet access [and I personally have found that Cable seems much faster] and with their phone service which I expect will likely charge me higher prices/rates and charge me more or seperately for less functionality/services.

I have looked up this problem here in the forums and have gotten some tips that I will try:

1. If I have a certified DOCSIS 2.0 modem or not [however, there has been debate on this point in the forums on whether or not this is required or helpful for higher audio quality]. Any helpful input about this would be appreciated.

2. Turning off bandwidth saver. [I don't exactly know what this is referring to, but I plan on calling Vonage and asking them to see if I need to do this and how. Any suggestions again would be helpful and appreciated.]

3. If my Vonage router and my Linksys Wireless Access Point/Router are too close to my wireless phone in my home and if they are both also certified DOCSIS 2.0 or not.

I am in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and my business will be in Appleton Wisconsin [I don't know if this would make a difference or not].

I also don't know if I will have a wireless access point or router implimented at my business yet, but I would like to have the option in the future and thus see if I could fix this home phone audio problem before I decide whether or not to go with Vonage's Business Service. It would break my heart and probably my pocketbook if I could not, my alternative would be landlines through SBC and DSL service as opposed to Roadrunner Cable Modem which I have at home and which I found to be faster.

My cable runs into my cable modem first which is a Toshiba PCX 2500, then it runs into my Vonage Router which is a Motorola model VT 1005V then into my Linksys Etherfast Wireless Access Point + Cable/DSL Router with 4-Point Switch, which is then connected to my desktop computer which is a Toshiba V3100 which has an Intel Celeron 366 MHz processor. I run Windows Home XP edition SP2. My phone is a Uniden PowerMax 5.8 GHz which has a base with a charging station for one of the two cordless handsets. The base and handset is on my desk about 3 feet from the wireless access point/router which is right next to my Vonage router and right next to it is my cable modem.

I ran a few speed tests and here are the results:
