Vonage Reviews

Vonage I agree that VTech phones are at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to quality.





I agree that VTech phones are at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to quality. But my 4 handset system was a gift, so I am using it any way. I also live in a house with a tin roof, and find the occasional problem with wireless stuff.

I used to be into amateur radio not too long ago. I found that the VTech phones are rather "noisy". That is, they cause radio interference in some devices. I was having a big problem with choppy audio when I used mine too. What I am convinced is happening is that the transmission from the phone, and/or base unit is causing internal interference in the modems themselves. Wireless adapters could also be causing this as well. I have the feeling that the modems for the most part are very poorly shielded from RF. Even though I am new to the forum, everything I have read so far that involves choppy audio, it seems that a cordless phone, or wireless network is involved.

Here is a quick fix that I did, and it seems to have solved the problem. Make a Grounded Faraday Cage for your modems.

I know, what is a Faraday Cage. It is a wire mesh box connected to a good ground that will protect your Vonage, and cable modems from any RF interference. Without getting to deep into the physics lesson, it will take electromagnetic energy (radio signals, and interfernce from other electrical devices, IE: electric motors) and dissipate it across the cage to ground, before it can enter the cage, where the modem is, to cause the choppy audio problem.

Here is how you build one. Get some aluminum window screen from the hardware store, (It has to be aluminum, not fiberglass) any cardboard box that is big enough for the modems to sit in and still allow enough air to circulate for cooling, and some wire 14 gauge will work fine. cut some holes in the box for ventilation, then wrap the box with the window screen, 2 layers thick all the way around NO OPENINGS, just a flap to get to the modems. A stapler will be handy for this. connect the wire to the back of the box so the stripped wire is touching the window screen. (again stapler) Then take the other end of the wire an connect it to a ground, the metal back of your computer case will do fine as long as it is plugged into a known grounded plug. Then all you have to do is cut a small hole in the back of the box thru the screen to route your wires thru, hook up your modems, and you are done.

Now, unless I am right next to the cage with the handset, I seem to have no sound quality problems at all.

Here is my setup.
Charter cable, RCA cable modem, Motorola VT2442, no wireless.

Sometimes there is a simple solution to a complicated problem.

Of course you're right, if this system were to die I wouldn't buy 2.4ghz again and
