Vonage Well, enigma91884, I was experiencing an inability to be heard by the person that

Well, enigma91884, I was experiencing an inability to be heard by the person that I would call using my Vonage RT31P2. Just no voice was transmitted. Sometimes, it would work and sometimes it would fail. Regular testing of my Line Speed showed no irregularities. Running, likewise showed a consistently High Operating Level, almost equal to Boston's standard results, if anything they were quite remarkable. Next I ran the for a week 24/7, 100 byte packets, sent at 100 packets per every 10 seconds to in Philadelphia. There was absolutely not a single packet lost at any time during the test, and latency remained rock solid at 53ms avg. I set the graph for 12 hour displays so I wouldn't miss anything, just the server switches.

So far, the standard thought on the matter from Vonage being that the problem is the result of either poor latency or connectivity problems, go call your ISP. That proved untrue and then some.

I was out of ideas. I had called Technical Support, but the tech had no idea or suggestion. When the obvious proves false, then the unobvious must be true. I swapped out my phone with an old corded thing that I had stored in my junk closet, It Worked! I thought that I had a solution, but I was wrong.

I told others that were experiencing the same phenomenon to try swapping out phones. For some it worked and for some it didn't. Some canceled their service. Some just got plain nasty. So what makes a phone work? A microphone, a speaker, and a power source all hooked up in series. A ridiculous, simple as they come, Ohm's Law problem. Something you'ld give a beginner in Basic Electricity class. If the power source is insufficient (low voltage) then the current in the circuit decreases. The component that requires the most current fails first, the microphone.

Each phone is different than the next. Different components require more or less current. Therefore, some phones will work and some phones will not. Those who get nasty at me for suggesting that they swap out phones don't get the other half of the puzzle.

If you could be so kind as to inform the Real Technical Support that the RJ-11 jacks on the RT31P2's are way too low in output voltage and should be adjusted to meet specifications then you will keep your customers and keep the other half happy with properly operating ATA's. Feel free to PM me if you like, or whatever. I would really like to see how this thing turns out.

You already have one more supporter. AspectTec, the posting above. He doesn't know how or why, but he's happy about it nonetheless!

Finally, there is nothing remarkable about my simple setup here. I live alone in an apartment. The single phone is directly connected to the P1 RJ-11 on the RT31P2. Comcast cable connects to the Motorola SB5100 which connects to the RT31P2 which feeds the PC. No housewiring, no splitters on the phone. The most basic and simple setup that can be.

I bought a new 5.8ghz cordless with a single expandable cordless extension. It draws most of it's load from the A/C adapter and onboard batteries. I haven't had a single problem since. Of the three (junk) spares that I have, one works intermittently, one works always, and the last works intermittently.

That's a lot of information. I hope you can put it to use for the good of all.

Good Morning! At first, it seems to be somewhat extreme to replace the phone adapter.
Mike, As per our phone discussion, let me know what happens.
Thank you, Andrew. I strung up every telephone that I own. A total REN of about 2.
I have been following all the threads on this one way audio problem for a while.
