Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - September 27, 2005


Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

September 27, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. 

Lots of news today, so let's get busy. Today we will catch up on the latest deadline for Vonage and other Voip service subscribers to acknowledge they understand the current limitations of E-911 access over VoIP. We'll also read about why the U.S. Government wants the right to tap your Vonage calls. We'll hear about an in-kind donation made by Vonage to Hurricane Rita rescue efforts. We'll look at A Vonage Voip Forum thread from a Forum Member who wants to extend the range of his Wi-Fi setup- and some very helpful but differing suggestions about how he can do this.



Vonage In The Headlines

Have You Sent In Your E911 "Acknowledgment" Yet?

Last month, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission was all set to force VoIP service providers such as Vonage to interrupt access for subscribers who did not get back to their provider with an acknowledgement they understand the access limitations to E911 services over VoIP. 

Well, that deadline is now tomorrow. CNET News says that up to 50,000 VoIP subscribers to all services haven't sent in their acknowledgement yet. If you are a Vonage subscriber, I know they have been trying to contact you - by phone, by email, by every means but smoke signals. If I were you .. well, you know what to do. End of lecture.

U.S. Government Says They Have The Right To Tap Vonage Calls

On Friday, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission issued an order that requires Voip service providers such as Vonage to have technology in place that would allow U.S. law enforcement agencies to be able to wiretap your calls.

The main reason, as you might guess, is fear of terrorism. "It is clearly not in the public interest to allow terrorists and criminals to avoid lawful surveillance by law enforcement agencies by using broadband Internet access services," the FCC said in its order.

The FCC believes it has authority to make this order under a 1994 U.S. law called the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act. A couple of the five FCC Commissioners say they expect lawsuits arguing that this Act does not cover services such as VoIP- and at least one group- the Center for Democracy and Technology - is sounding in interviews that they are uncomfortable with this law.

We'll pay attention and keep you posted.

Vonage Helps Out Town Devastated By Hurricane Rita

Less than two weeks after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast of the U.S., Hurricane Rita struck. While the damage wasn't as extensive in Rita as it was in Katrina, there's plenty of misery - and rebuilding efforts to go around. 

One of the hardest hit towns was Pass Christian, Mississippi. It is a Gulf Coast town of 6,500 people, but right now all but 500 have fled. The town lost 60 percent of its homes, as well as its city hall, schools, library, recreation center and firehouse.

Vonage is helping, and in a big way. Based in Holmdel, New Jersey (which my MapQuest tells me is 1298.96 miles and a 20-plus hour drive to Pass Christian) Vonage rented a motor home for three Holmdel-based first responders - an emergency services coordinator, a police officer and a member of the town's rescue squad -to drive down to Pass Christian and lend their help. Vonage paid all expenses for the trip, including fuel.

Fuel for a motor home? That's got to be expensive, but no one should mind. This is an exceptionally kind gesture. I even linked to an article about it on the Vonage Voip Forum. OK, here's the link

Speaking of the Vonage Voip Forum...

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Because Vonage Voip Forum Member bdee1 was wondering how to extend the range of his Wi-Fi connection he uses for his Vonage service, he's started a thread called extending the range of my Wi-Fi.

"I got the WRTP54G for my Vonage service and it works pretty well," bdee1 writes, "but the problem is that the device is in the lower level of my house and when i use my laptop to connect via wifi from upstairs (the room directly above where the wifi router is) i often get a unreliable signal that cuts in and out going from a very good connect to weak to no signal and back to very good."

Several Vonage Forum Members have stepped in to help.

Forum Member bobn comes "bob, bob, bobbin' along with a suggestion of antenna extend. He lists products from Hawkings: http://www.compusa.com/products/product_info.asp?product_code=316518&pfp=cat3, and Linksys: http://www.compusa.com/products/product_info.asp?product_code=314455&pfp=SEARCH. He says both products are available at CompUSA.

Forum Member reebok, our most frequent poster, has another idea. Before we get into reebok's post, I should tell you that when he uses the term "hyperWRT," he is not talking about warts - but about power-boost firmware for Linksys 54G routers. And just in case you're wondering, WRT stands for Wireless Receiver-Transmitter. If you want more info, here's a link

OK, back to reebok's post. "An easier and free solution would be to get firmware such as (hyperWRT) or several others for the WRT," he writes. "You can boost the signal output through the firmware." He suggests that bdee1 read a little about it first- "but it's pretty easy and safe if you do it within limits," reebok adds. "Bumping it up a little made the WRT      work great at long ranges in my parents house."

Forum Member jnuzzi joins the chorus. "If the antennas on the WRTP54G are 'omni directional' then you may want to try situating the antennas horizontally instead of vertically since you are trying to connect from above the router," he writes. "From what I have read, omni directional antennas broadcast their signal in all directions on a flat plane. So if you are above or below the router you will not get a good signal."

Finally, we have this very useful advice from Forum Member turbo53. "I agree with this," he writes about jnuzzi's suggestion. "I have my WRTP54G and cable modem in the basement since the area around my TV was getting too messy with all the equipment (TV, Cable box, DVD, VCR, X-Box). 

"I placed the antenna horizontally and the signal reaches reliably to both the first and second floors of my house," he adds.  "I keep my notebook on the first floor. My desktop and my wife's notebook are both on the second floor. All three machines get a solid signal and never drop below 48 Mb.

As we close out today's Digest, I'd like to remind you once again about some more options you have to receive the Vonage Voip Forum Digest every day. If you go to this page: http://www.vonage-forum.com/syndication.html, you will see a list of RSS Newsreaders from which with one or two clicks, you'll be able to get your Digest delivered directly to your Newsreader each morning. The Newsreaders we've linked to on that page include such reliable and trusted services as Bloglines, Feedster, My Yahoo!, Newsgator and Feedburner. I am open to add others, just contact me with the info of the Newsreader.

That's what's hot about Vonage today. We'll be back on Wednesday morning with our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest!!
