Vonage I purchased the PAP2 adapter before leaving on temporary assignment to Hong Kong



I purchased the PAP2 adapter before leaving on temporary assignment to Hong Kong for a few months, where I am staying in corporate housing that uses a broadband connection similar to most hotels (initial log-in screen...done once and always remembered).

I've been able to get place and receive calls, but when I come home sometimes I'll dial my home office voicemail and can tell no audio is going either way (the Vonage call log will show a connection to the number). Or a friend will call and I can't hear them, nor can they hear me.

I've tried to setup everything according to other post in the forum when dealing with hotel connections. Here are the details:

Hotel Connection -> TP-LINK router -> laptop in one connection, PAP2 in another. Simple wired phone.

Router receives a dynamic IP from the hotel. PAP2 is set to static. Picked up the TP-LINK router here in HK...it doesn't have the ability to properly port forward a range, just individual ports (so I have 53, 63, 5060 and 5061 as trigger ports with incoming ports for all that include those four plus the 10000-20000 range). On the TP-LINK, I've enabled DMZ for the PAP2 in an effort to help with this porting issue.

On router:

WAN:

IP Address: 172.16.5.69
Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
Default Gateway: 172.16.0.1
Subnet: 255.255.0.0
DNS: Uses the hotel's DNS address.

LAN:

IP Address: 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

On the PAP2:

IP Address: 192.168.1.101
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS: Uses the hotel's DNS address

I have cloned the MAC address of the router to match the PC, as I authenticated with it originally.

From what I've read, I've assumed a couple of potential issues, aside from something as simple as not having a setting properly placed:

- Port forwarding...seems like most of the audio problems are related to this. Since my router really isn't properly doing this, I'm thinking of getting a Linksys or other reliable router. But since I've been able to make and receive calls, is it possible port forwarding is an issue? Would I sometimes be able to make calls and sometimes not?

- NAT...am I trying to overcome something that I can't due to NAT on the hotel's end? I've read about registration intervals...could that be changed to send out a frequent request so that the path stays viable (I'm sure there's a more eloquent technical description for that).

Also, below are the results from the Voip test:

Any help would be greatly appreciated...the forum has been very helpful so far...I just can't seem to get over this last hurdle. Thanks.

Your packet losses and QoS are just awful; I'm surprised it ever works. Try plugging
Thanks. I decided to return the router and try ICS with a crossover cable (connection
Well, I won't claim to understand, but neither will I argue with success. Enjoy!
