Yes, that would mess with things a bit on Comcast's end. I have Comcast too, and a close friend of mine works for Comcast, and explained it quite well once. You can always clone the MAC address that Comcast is using to authenticate you into their network (the MAC of your router, in your case), and spoof that MAC in your Vonage adapter, but the easiest thing to do will be to put the Vonage adapter behind the router, just like any other computer. Additionally, this will simplify how your router is assigning IP address via DHCP. The Vonage adapters will default to look for their IP as a DCHP client, so you would just plug the Vonage adapter into your router, and immediately have dialtone without really having to configure anything.

As far as the number of ethernet ports, it depends on which Vonage adapter you end up getting. If you get the Motorola, it has 2 ethernet ports, although it's a hassle to use them both if the MTA is plugged into a router... Long story.

I really think for simplicity sake, you'd be happier just plugging the Vonage adapter into your router, and let your router continue to handle port forwarding, etc. The MTA does have an HTML interface you can log into and configure several parameters, but it's not as flexible as your router will be in a lot or aspects.

I can only speak as a residential plan customer; as far as I can tell, the numbers are completely randomly selected, and you pretty much just get what comes out of the pool. Much like getting a cell phone, in most cases. I'd be surprised if Vonage has a heck of a lot of control over what number you're assigned, as it usually comes from another LEC (phone company), and in most markets, Vonage likely has little say what number you get. Bottom line on that one, I wouldn't count on being able to request any specific numbers, outside of selecting your area code and prefix.

Basically, the two residential plans are very similar. The simple way to explain it would be like this: The $14.99 plan includes 500 minutes per month to call whoever you want in North America (USA & Canada). If you use more than 500 minutes, it's $.03 per minute additional. The $24.99 plan includes unlimited minutes to call anyone in North America (USA & Canada).

They both include the same features: Voicemail, caller ID, call conferencing, call waiting, etc. The calling features are exactly the same bewteen the two rate plans.

I have a recording studio too, and I've wondered the same thing. To my knowledge, there is no way to record your outgoing greeting besides just using the telephone, as with most voicemail systems. I could well be wrong, you might search this forum for a better answer. If you find one, share it with me!

Since you're using Comcast like I am, I can honestly tell you that you'll likely have no troubles with the service. Every once in a while, my router will lock up, and I'll have no dialtone.. stuff like that. Not Vonage's fault.

Sometimes when I'm uploading a file, or sending an email with an attachment, if I'm on the phone at the same time, the person I'm talking to will notice that I sound a little choppy for a few seconds. It usually clears itself up after a few seconds. As you know, Comcast doesn't give us a huge amount of upload bandwidth, so stuff like that will occasionally happen.

Hope that helps! I've been on board with Vonage since nearly the beginning. I have had all of their hardware adapters except the new Linksys PAP2, which if you haven't ordered yet, is likely what you'll receive ( I started with the original Cisco unit, which I LOVED. I moved on to the Motorola, which I don't like as much. I have my Linksys on order now, which I am hoping is better than the Motorola. I expect it's probably pretty good, since Cisco owns Linksys. :o

There ya go. Let us know if you can think of any more questions. My opinion: If you order the service, you probably won't regret it. The features are way better than what you get with a POTS line (Plain Old Telephone System)!

Take care,
