Vonage What to do? What to do? I am having a really bad time with Vonage and are about

What to do? What to do?

I am having a really bad time with Vonage and are about to bail out. No, I am not trashing the service. Really. It's quite possible that my setup is all wrong and I have nobody to blame but myself for not doing things right. But that's why I am here, writing to people and asking for help.

I signed up for Vonage about 2 months ago and at the beginning, I was very happy with service and price. Things worked well, although I had a faint echo every time I called home, and going from $70 a month to 27.25 was a spectacular thing.

Then, I started to encountering problems. Half of the features didn't work right and the other half didn't work at all.

I already mentioned the echo on the line. I can hear my own voice half a second delayed.

When I pick up on one line and my wife picks up on another, only one of us can hear the other party clearly.

I get busy signal calling home or get transferred to a voice mail. With call waiting, that is not really supposed to happen.

Voice mail messages don't appear right away. Once, it took a whole day for the message to show up.

Call waiting? Forget it. Not only it doesn't work, but half the time it interrupts the call and makes the line go dead.

Sometimes, calls just get cut off in the middle.

Now that I complained a little bit, let me describe to you my setup at home.

My cable service is from Cablevision - Optimum Online.

My network is 3 PCs and 1 laptops connected via Linksys wireless router WRT54G.

Vonage had sent me a Linksys router RT31P2 - three output ports, 2 phone ports, no wireless.

After I have activated the service and transferred my phone number from Verizon to Vonage, I have disconnected the outside line.

Since I didn't want to lose wireless capability, I plugged in the the output from the wireless router into the input (Internet port) of the Vonage router. To put it simply, I have daisy chained two routers.

Finally, I connected the Vonage router's telephone port into one of my phone jacks and that was it. Everything worked.

Now, tell me, what could be the problem?

Was it wrong thing for me to daisy chain routers?
Someone told me that I should not have connected routers' power cord into a surge protector (this sounds kind of silly, but what the hey).
Could there be a problem with either of my routers?
Could the Cable company be the cause of this problem (I seem to be having less problems in the evening and more problems during the day)?

As frustrated as I am by all this, I don't want to abandon Vonage. I am in a hunter's mode now and I really want to find out what is happening.

This weekend, I will try to connect my cable modem directly to the Vonage's router and if that doesn't help I will say goodbye to Vonage and go somewhere else. Can't afford to have my wife PO'ed at me, no matter how much money Voip saves me.

Thanks to anyone who replies to this.
