Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - August 1, 2005

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

August 1, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. Wow, is it August already?

In today's edition, we'll tell about an important television interview Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron will do later this morning. We'll also review two Vonage Voip Forum threads with a common theme I know many of you are interested in: getting Vonage to work throughout your house. Finally, we'll introduce you to our newest Vonage Voip Forum Member of the Week.

Vonage In The Headlines

Vonage CEO To Appear On TV Today

Stockbrokers at their desk as well as serious investors at home, are likely to be tuned in to Bloomberg Television. Unlike other financial news channels that vary their coverage of financial news with celebrity fluff, Bloomberg TV- which is available on most cable and satellite systems- is the real thing.

Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron will be interviewed on Bloomberg Television at 11:15 a.m. Eastern Time today. Since Vonage isn't a public company, with its stock being traded on one of the exchanges, it says a lot that Bloomberg thinks Vonage is important enough to interview the CEO. Citron usually uses these appearances to give his opinions on where Vonage and Voip are headed. I'll bet that he will be asked about E911. I will be watching, as I am sure many of you who will be able to will as well.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

I really like it when new Vonage Voip Forum Members starts threads that draw so many responses, we have to devote extra pages to all the posts that are made in that thread. At the very least, it shows that the question that started the thread connects with many other Members. It can also be a testimony to the fact that we have many Members who are more than willing to help if and when they can.

A week ago last Sunday, month-long Vonage Voip Forum member captdave started a new thread called Vonage into the rest of my house. Captdave explained that he now has Vonage up and running, and wants to extend Vonage coverage to the rest of the hacks in his house. He proposed two alternatives

  • "Disconnect Qwest installed phone jack (that I assume charges the rest of the phone jacks in the house). Plug the phone cord coming from the Vonage router into the Network box."
  • "Disconnect the wires that connect the house's phone system to Qwest's system."

In his post, captdave made the extra effort to include a couple of photos of his setup. I realize that many threads do not need photos, having photos of what you are trying to describe gives those of us who want to help a good visual picture of your setup. Plus, when you are making posts about different colored wiring, it helps to actually see it.

After captdave's very informative photos, an amazingly thorough discussion started between captdave and paul248. That lasted most of the previous weekend before this one. It covered interference issues.

"I agree that the interference is definitely somewhere in the analog portion of the network," captdave replied to one of paul248's helpful replies in this thread. "The jack I've plugged into is newer and is configured for 2 lines. I switched the Vonage line from the top jack to the bottom jack, tested for a phone signal on a phone upstairs and there was nothing! So, it appears I have the correct jack plugged in." Then, captdave said he would try one of two things: "move all equipment closer to the phone jack or. move just the Vonage router closer to the phone jack."

To that, paul248 suggested, "What I'm wondering is, why would you get interference when Vonage was connected, but not with the normal telco? Seems a bit odd, but maybe it has something to do with where the service is entering the system?," he said.

Paul then added that captdave might want to go back to his original plan, which was "to run a line from the Vonage device to your phone box, and attach it to the red/green screw terminals," paul248 wrote. "That way, Vonage will be feeding in from the same location that your telco was."

Then guess what. Captdave went back to this thread over this past weekend describing what he did. By the way, making a follow-up post describing what you have done after your fellow Forum Member(s) took the time out to try to help you is a courteous thing to do. If you have the time, that's always a good idea.

Anyway, captdave followed up by saying that he "bridged the long distance gap between the cable outlet and the phone jack using the coax cable instead of the analog phone cable. This eliminated the AM radio station I was getting."

Finally, he thanked his fellow Forum members for helping. A bit of courtesy goes a long way.

Captdave has sure been busy on the Forums. In fact, within the last day he's started another new thread called Wireless network getting dropped. While this issue relates to the one he described in the thread Vonage into the rest of my house, it is specific enough that captdave had the foresight to make a new thread. Good idea, captdave. Doing so helps your fellow Vonage Forum members identify your problem.

Anyhow, on this thread, captdave describes his problem like this:

"The only PC that's on the network is a laptop that is connected using wireless," he writes. "It seems every time the laptop sits for a few hours (and is usually correlated with it going to standby or sleep), the internet/wireless connection is cut. Despite the wireless icon showing a connection to the network in the system tray, I am unable to access either the wireless router or the Voip router."

It's not that captdave hasn't been busy trying to work this out. The problem is that the solution he has come up with so far is a bit inconvenient.

"The only remedy I've found thus far is to unplug the power to the wireless router, wait 10 seconds and plug it back in. This solution works every time. The network equipment is connected in the following order: -Cable Modem - Linksys BEFCMU10 -Vonage Router - RT31P2-VD -Wireless Broadband Router - Motorola WR850G. So, here's my plead for help! If you have any ideas of how to track down and resolve this issue, please help!!"

Only about an hour and a half after captdave started this thread with his question, Vonage Voip Forum Member arcking posted up a suggestion. Next time it happens try this:
If you have XP right click the Wireless Icon and select Repair. "If you don't have XP, arcking added, go to Start > Run > (and then) type CMD > type ipconfig /release > type ipconfig /renew.
