Vonage Sorry for the long delay...apparently the forum is not sending activity notifications



Sorry for the long delay...apparently the forum is not sending activity notifications for some reason. Anyway, I have been stuck on DSL for a while, but this issue came up again today, so I just thought I would check my post, and here you guys are, responding without me even realizing it!

Ed56, if I connect the Vonage device directly to the cable modem, it works a bit better, but still not perfect, so while the router is adding some drama, I do not believe that it is the actual source of the problem…and keep in mind that this is the same router that works perfectly via DSL. Honestly, I wouldn’t doubt if it had something to do with throttling, since the new modem seems so much faster on speed tests, but is rather “bursty”

Slyster, I have to admit that I don’t know how to configure the RV082 to give high priority to UDP packets, nor does it support QOS so far as I know, although I have given higher priority to the Vonage ports, and that seems to work well.

Ksig, I am particularly interested in your reply because it seems to echo what I have been thinking – that the problem is related to the new cable modem. Do you happen to know if the 5100 supports these new speed features? Then again, it may be that those features are exactly the reason for the Vonage troubles…(?).

As to segmenting phones and Internet, I’ve thought of that, but that’s not really what I want. I want an automated switch-over so that if I’m out of the office, people can keep working without losing much time. I also thought of using the bandwidth management feature, as it really does speed up web response when multiple users are working at the same time, but unfortunately, Vonage has never been able to survive with that feature enabled, so I just settle for fail-over mode.

VonTechMgr, the router can be configured either way that you describe, but since the Vonage devices do not like to be switched, I have had to settle for fail-over mode. At present, I have DSL as primary, because cable works so very badly with Vonage, but the cable tests quite a bit faster, so I would probably make cable the primary if I could get Vonage to play well with the cable modem. What you are describing would pretty well explain what happens when I let the router allocate bandwidth…and needless to say, it doesn’t work at all.

If I connect the Vonage box directly to the cable modem, that works better, but still not reliable, so again, I know the router is a factor, but it seems to be related more to the cable modem. And yet, the cable modem sends data at an amazing rate…approaching 20 Mbps at times with 2 Mbps up…I don’t know if those numbers are real, but it sure does seem fast…wish I could use it for a while and see if it feels as much faster as the speed tests seem to indicate.


Thanks all,
-Mark

Seems to make no sense . . . but I would disconnect the cable modem from the Linksys
On that particular vpn 8 port router, have you configured it to give RTP (UDP ports
Mark, I would strongly recommend dumping that cable modem and grab a Motorola
Mark, I have dealt with dual WAN routers on many occasions so I am not sure how
Mark, Don't be focused on your speed. Just because the cable connection provides
Sure, I understand what you are saying. And DSL has always has worked better for
While I agree the Ambit may be part of the issue since it is on our list of hardware
Well…I don’t know what the statistics are, but there must be an awful lot of people
