Vonage I've found that, even using the V-Phone/Vista workaround and every other trick

I've found that, even using the V-Phone/Vista workaround and every other trick I've read, the V-Phone starts up only about one out of 10 times I try.

I've searched the forums and support section of the web site, and I've tried everything, and I cannot find the magical combination to make V-Phone work on the first try. Whether it be running in compatibility mode, or deleting the options.ini file, unplugging and reconnecting the USB device, etc...

I do usually get it to work... sometimes after just 2 tries, and sometimes after 20 tries. Most of the time, I get the Vonage Splash Screen ("Detected" and then "Initializing"), then the Vonage Talk USB keypad comes up, and at the bottom it says "Service Unavailable, Internal Error", and then I get a Windows message that the program has stopped working and has to be shut down.

When do get it to finally start, it runs fine. Call quality is great, and none have been dropped, and the program never crashes.

My bandwidth is fine - I get 3 mbps down and 384 kbps up. And I have the same problem at my office, where I have a T-1.

The routers at both locations have no firewalls. I've made sure my Windows Firewall is allowing the Vonage Talk exe, as well as every other exe related to the program (ie, autodown.exe). I have even completely disabled Windows Firewall and I still have the same issues...

In regards to the above suggestion - to plug it into an XP machine - I've done that as well. I plugged it into an XP machine on the same network, and it started up, automatically and perfectly, without a hiccup. I then plugged it back into my Vista laptop, double-checked that the compatibility mode was set and my firewall was off, and got the same stinking "Service Unavailable, Internal Error" crash... over and over.

Additionally, when the USB device is plugged in, the whole computer lags up... I'll have internet explorer freeze up randomly (not responding), and then I'll unplug the Vonage USB device, and instantly IE unfreezes and the entire computer is running smoothly again. I have similar freezing-up issues with Media Player when the USB device is plugged in.

So my conclusion is that the V-Phone is just very very buggy on a Vista machine. Unless someone can enlighten me as to some alternative method to get it working right, it is just not practical to fight through these issues... Which is a shame, as it would be of great use to me.

Anybody know if they are planning to give us a Vista-compatible version any time soon?
