Vonage I conducted some tests last night of a few different setups to see if there was any



I conducted some tests last night of a few different setups to see if there was any performance difference. My basic conclusion is that the setup I was using already (Modem->Linksys WRT54G->VOIP Linksys RTP300) was the best I could do. The worst connection I had was Modem->VOIP Linksys RTP300->Linksys WRT54G.

One of the reasons why I did this is because I thought maybe Comcast could "see" that I was a Vonage user by the IP address. What do Vonage IP addresses usually start with? Interestingly, I had a different IP address with each setup.

I have a Comcast line that usually gets ~6MB down and ~384 up.

Does anyone have a "best" connection? Is there a way to set things up to "mask" that I am a Vonage user for those of us who believe in Comcast vs. Vonage conspiracies?
