Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

December 14, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. In the news, we'll tell you some more info about Vonage's New Wi-Fi phone. We'll review an article in which a couple of well-known small business consultants and authors recommend Vonage service as a cost-saver. We'll catch up on the latest about a security issue reported a while back about the new F1000 Vonage Wi-Fi Phone. We'll also look at a Vonage Forum thread that started out as a discussion about a Motorola router, but morphed into an interesting post about one of Linksys' routers used with Vonage. 



In The News

More Info About Vonage's New Wi-Fi Phone

As I first announced in yesterday's Digest, Vonage and UTStarcom Inc. have just released the F1000, a portable Wi-Fi handset made by UTStarcom and configured with Vonage's service.

The device works with any open access (as opposed to subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot and costs $79.99 after a $50 instant rebate. 

Here are some more details.

The F1000 Wi-Fi handset comes pre-configured with Vonage's standard call features: three-way calling, call waiting, repeat dial on busy, call forwarding to user assigned number, call hold/resume, voice mail and more. You'll be able to configure and save Wi-Fi profiles, to make connectivity go quicker.

Also, the F1000 supports a battery with up to 5 hours of talk time, 50-100 hour standby and the ability to recharge in 2-3 hours. 

"Consumers with Wi-Fi access in their home can replace their traditional home phone with the F1000 and start reaping the benefits of wireless Voip phone service right away,” said Bill Huang, CTO and senior vice president of engineering at UTStarcom

Small Business Author-Consultant Team Recommends Vonage

In an article on the Xtreme Television website, small business experts Jeff and Rich Sloan of the share their personal tech tips for increasing small business growth.

"Pinch pennies with Internet telephony. Internet telephony offers a whole new way to 'let your fingers do the walking.'," write the Sloans,  authors of "StartupNation: Open for Business" (Doubleday). "It often comes at a flat rate far below traditional phone-usage fees.

"There are no issues associated with long-distance calls," they add, "and you can use whatever area code you’d like. Plus, you can do all sorts of things online to manage messages, set up calls, review bills, and more. We’ve used Vonage, and have enjoyed the low, flat rate immensely."

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Speaking of Vonage's new UT Starcom F1000 Wi-Fi handset, Vonage Forum Member shawnmer remembered a security alert he read about the device some months ago. Curious about the status of this alert, he began a thread that he called So I assume that the F1000 security issues are now resolved?

For his first Vonage Forum post, new Member howiewifi posts a link to the security web site Secunia.com. The link  howiewifi has provided leads to an article entitled "UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi Handset Multiple Vulnerabilities." The article reviews the history of these "vulnerabilities", but then adds that the vulnerabilities have been fixed in version 3.1.  

New Vonage Forum Member Tareks has started an interesting thread that's he's named, Can I get Motorola VT1005RB with retail activation?

"I got a Linksys PAP2 phone adapter at Circuit City to connect to Vonage service over my broadband connection. Yet, since I have only a Cable modem, not router, I won't be able to use the Linksys devise alone to connect," he writes As I understand it, I need a router too. 

"Now," he writes, "I have found out that Vonage offers a free Motorola VT1005RB router when you sign up. The problem is, when I activate my Linksys PAP2 using the account activation (which is necessary to get the first month free), I can't go to the page where I can select Motorola VT1005RB." 

Tareks then asks if there a way he can do the two things, activate the product that he bought (so that I can get the special deal) and also get the Motorola VT1005RB to avoid paying for a new router.

"No," writes reebok.

But then after some give and take involving some other Vonage Forum Members, the subject morphs to the Linksys WRTP54G, on which Vonage Forum Member NateHoy gives his thoughts.

"I use BitTorrent, and the WRTP54G has the Linksys default of maintaining connections for 5 days. The router worked just fine, until they upgraded to 1.00.52, then all holy hell broke loose. The Vonage side worked better, but the ROUTER side couldn't maintain stability under even the lightest BitTorrent load (15-20 connections MAX) for more than 12 hours or so. Sometimes, it would go down in a few hours. Once, when I turned of BitTorrent, it went four whole days.

I got a WRT54G, Loaded up HyperWRT Tofu 10, put the WRTP54G behind it, turned EVERYTHING on the WRTP54G off that I could find, and it's now a VERY nice Vonage device, "he adds. "Voice is cleaner than ever now that the WRTP54G doesn't have to waste processing cycles on anything but voice. Routing is 10 times more stable - no more reboots no more Internet loss. Everything is faster. I have working QoS. It's like night and day, baby. I can't believe I waited two months through that living hell, when Internet nirvana was $50 away."

So what does NateHoy recommend to others about the WRYP54G?

"If your WRTP54G works for you, then great. It's not a bad little router, emphasis on 'little,'" he points out. But I would never, ever, recommend that anyone spend money, time, or effort consolidating their network to one, or trust it for any but the lightest demands (a few computers, surfing, downloading, etc). Even then, I needed the occasional reboot "just because."

NateHoy then says that if you have trouble with routing or stability on your WRTP54G, don't waste your time. "Buy a WRT54G (pre V5, of course), a WRT54GL, or a WRT54GS. Load up aftermarket firmware. Get working QoS. Enjoy speed and stability that the WRTP54G cannot touch. Love the cleaner sound. Live the life. Don't look back. $50-75 buys you a lot of router, and a lot of peace of mind.

"But if it ain't broke, don't fix it," he concludes. "If you have a Vonage router, and you're happy with it, go with it. Until the next firmware upgrade, at least. (grin)."

So What Does All That Voip Alphabet Soup Mean?

Do all those abbreviations you read about in Vonage Forum threads and elsewhere confuse you? Well, we have a handy guide to all VoIP-related abbreviations you are likely to encounter, and what they stand for. So if you see another jumble of letters that doesn't make any sense, why not hop over to our Voip Acronyms page? You can find it at http://www.vonage-forum.com/voip-acronyms.html.

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 Thursday morning with our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest !!
