The first few days I had it set up I was getting terrible one way reception. As far as I could tell, the caller could hear me just fine, but the caller sounded very choppy to me. There are also intermittent bursts of loud static. Over the past few days, however, the service has been pretty decent.

I tended to use a lot of bandwidth before vonage... downloading and uploading music, movies and large graphics. I have cut down on the significantly over the past month, but I still like to download a new torrent every few days or so, and I try to leave those torrents open for seeding for as long as possible. If my upload speeds are already capped by my ISP, it doesn't sound like I have a whole lot of options other than "stop uploading while using Vonage".

Another problem I noticed the day after I first hooked the system up, my computers browsing speeds plummeted. I was getting dial-up transfer speeds while just doing basic web-browsing (no downloading or torrenting at that time).


What I would like to do is optimize my setup to get the best possible quality out of Vonage while maintaining the ability to browse, download and upload as I have become accustomed to. Do I need a newer/better modem, Vonage device or both? Is it a good idea to switch my OS over to Linux and use that exclusively? Would it be worth my time and effort to hardwire the Vonage directly into the house line or should I invest in some wireless phone adapters to get the other phones in the house to work on Vonage?

I understand that I am asking a lot of questions that cover a lot of ground. If you could advise me on these issues or point me in the direction of threads that cover these issues I would REALLY appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Help me optimize my Vonage setup?


If you want to optimize your internet connection so that Vonage will work better
Your bandwidth is a pretty tight fit for VoIP, at least upstream. Adding anything
The VoIP test was run while I was uploading other files. I have set my global upload
okay, I put my WRT54G (v2) router back at the top of the chain, flashed with a dd-wrt
I don't think the VOIP version is what you want. You'll have better performance
