Vonage I've finally got a dial tone after 3 days of messing with this box and I'm starting

I've finally got a dial tone after 3 days of messing with this box and I'm starting to get agitated like a towel in the washing mashine.

A little background...

Purchased PAP2 Phone Adapter
Installed it according to User's Manual, including Appendix A

At first, I had Power, Ethernet, and Phone 1 lit up - but no dial tone. It was connected as follows:

Cable Internet - Cable Modem
- Linksys BEFSR41 router
- Computer 1
- Computer 2
- PAP2 Phone Adapter
- Empty

I disconnected PAP2 from the Linksys BEFSR41 router and connected it to the cable modem.

At this point, it was connected as follows:

Cable Internet - Cable Modem
- PAP2 Phone Adapter

I disconnected power to the cable modem and the PAP2 and powered them back up as instructed.
I was able to get a dial tone, but the Phone1 light was NOT lit. I disabled DHCP, and entered a static IP of (to comply with the router).

I hooked the PAP2 back to the original configuration:
Cable Internet - Cable Modem
- Linksys BEFSR41 router
- Computer 1
- Computer 2
- PAP2 Phone Adapter
- Empty

I set up Port Forwarding, as according to Appendix A:
Internet Phone 1 5060 to 5061 UDP Enabled
Internet Phone 2 53 to 53 UDP Enabled
Internet Phone 3 69 to 69 UDP Enabled
Internet Phone 4 10000 to 20000 UDP Enabled
I saved the settings, went back and check and settings were saved.
I continued to get a dial tone but the Phone1 was not lit and there was a fast busy signal.

I powered down the cable modem, then the router, then the phone adapter.
I waited 2 minutes powered up the cable modem, waited 2 minutes, then powered up the router, and then waited 5 minutes and powered up the phone adapter.
After the Power quit blinking, the Power was lit, the Ethernet was lit, but as usual, the Phone1 was NOT lit, I got a dial tone but any calls resulted in a fast busy signal.

Some people have suggested to put the IP address in the DMZ on the router, of which I've tried that rebooting the hardware as stated above, with no change.

I have also checked these (from google) to see if it was me.,12821883~mode=flat,12794471~mode=flat,12740858~mode=flat
plus countless others

On one hand, I feel like there is a problem with Vonage, and that I've not lost my sanity. According to what appears to be thousands of unhappy customers, I'm starting to wonder if I am going to be another statistic.

Can anyone help me - point me in the right direction? I waited until I could afford to pay the $59 for the cheap phone adapter (1/4th my paycheck) just have problems like this?

I don't want to be a statistic. I would appreciate any assistance that can be offered. I want to make this work. I want phone service and not the FBSoD

Thanks in Advance!
