Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - December 21, 2005

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

December 21, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. Lots going on, so let's get busy.

In the news, we'll learn by how much Vonage is once again the leading advertiser on the Internet, and how much they spent advertising on other websites last month. We'll find out about a second member of auto racing's famous Andretti family to drive a Vonage-sponsored car. We will tell you which three large suburbs of Vancouver, B.C. Vonage is now offering local numbers in. We'll also point you to a couple of Vonage VoIP Forum threads about a lack of a busy signal and echo issues Vonage Forum Members have been experiencing with regard to setting up a fax to work with a Vonage line, and getting some router problems solved.

In The News

No Surprise: Vonage Again Ranks as Internet's Top Advertiser

Every month, the Internet research and survey firm Nielsen/NetRatings compiles their list of the largest Internet advertisers, and the number of times those advertiser's ads were served up on the Internet that month.

Nielsen/NetRatings gets this info by multiplying the published rate what Web sites charge for ads, with the amount of times that ad appears and factoring in their survey of how many times a month people visit the sites that show those ads.

Well, the numbers are in for November, and Vonage led with $31,044,300 in ad spending and an estimated 12,486,122,000 (that's more than 12.4 billion) impressions. Every time you see a Vonage ad online (except on the Vonage site itself), that's usually one impression. By the way, the second place finishers finished way back- BellSouth had the second most impressions with 2,880,768,000, and was second in expenditures with $2,880,768.

Another Andretti To Drive a Vonage-Sponsored Racecar

This past year, Marco Andretti competed on the circuit with a Vonage-sponsored car.

Now, Add another member of the multi-generation Andretti auto racing family to the Vonage stable. Yesterday, it was announced that Michael Andretti - Marco Andretti's father and Mario Andretti's son - will compete in the 2006 Indy Racing League  IndyCar Series season with Andretti Green Racing, team officials announced. Michael Andretti will carry the No. 1 on his Vonage-co sponsored, Honda-powered Dallara. Gentlemen, start your engines !!

Three Vancouver Suburbs Now Get Vonage Local Numbers

Vonage Canada has announced the local availability of its flat-rate, full-featured service to include the large suburban Vancouver cities of New Westminster, Port Coquitlam, and Surrey. Residents of these communities have always been able to use Vonage for local and long distance phone service, as long as they choose a number with an area code outside of their respective municipalities. That's all changed with Vonage's expansion. Now customers can keep their current phone number or select a new phone number local to their community and enjoy local and long distance calling plus a host of innovative phone features for one low flat rate. 

"British Columbians have had a rough ride when it comes to their phone service, said Bill Rainey, president, Vonage Canada. "Residents no longer have to feel like they are at the mercy of the whims of a large telephone company. With Vonage residents of BC now have choice for their local phone service. This latest phase of our expansion is part of our overall plan to provide residents across British Columbia with access to local Vonage Internet phone service." 

Customers in the communities of New Westminster, Port Coquitlam, and Surrey can have their current phone number transferred to Vonage or choose a new telephone number within the 604, and 778 area codes. All available area codes and communities are listed on the website.

Speaking of Vonage Canada, did you know we have a Vonage Canada Forum? And although most of the posters are Canadian, lots of the posts are about technical issues of interest to Vonage users no matter where they (or you) are. So let us go to the Vonage Canada section of the Vonage Forum and see what's up there now.


On The Vonage Voip Forum

Several weeks ago, Forum Member projectpete  from Ontario started a new thread called Send fax from computer without fax line?

"When you have a regular POTS line and a computer with a modem you are able to send and receive faxes with your computer. Is this true with Vonage as well or do you have to purchase their fax line?," he wrote.

Then scerruti joined in and posted that indeed, he has sent faxes from his computer over his Vonage line.

Next, projectpete came back to thank scerruti. But I've noticed this thread has been updated with some new posts that contain some useful info- whether you are north or south of the U.S.-Canada border.

"If you have problems sometimes try dial *99 before the number," Mustardman writes. "It disables the bandwidth saver so you are using the full 90kbps bandwidth.

Then slypher, another Vonage Forum Member, follows up that advises projectpete to "also try to throttle down your (fax) transmission speeds. Vonage seems to choke using anything over 14.4 kbps."

But then Vonage Forum Member PhotoJim from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada posts a slightly different perspective. 

"I think it depends on the quality of the modem in the machine and on the Internet connection," PhotoJim writes. "I can get full 50+Kbps v.90 modem connections on my Vonage line if I use a good modem, and modems are fussier than fax machines."

New Vonage Forum Member ejr was "edgier" because he was having trouble setting up his Linksys RTP300 to work with his Vonage connection. So he's started a thread that he has labeled, Is there a way to set up RTP300 with USB Modem?

"I am having difficulty setting up an RTP300, because my ADSL modem is USB without an Ethernet connection," he writes. "The USB ADSL modem is connected to (and powered by) a computer running Windows XP. The computer has an Ethernet port. Is it possible to use a USB to Ethernet converter in the following configuration?" 

He then lists configuration, which is ADSL modem USB cable --> USB/Ethernet converter --> blue cable --> RTP300 internet port. 

"Will the RTP300 provide power to the modem?," he asks. "Will this setup work?"

Then Vonage Forum Member bmardini furnishes a detailed and very useful answer.

"No, it is not possible to convert a USB powered device with an Ethernet connection; because of the main reason you mentioned in your post, you need power to operate the device," he writes. "Cheap ISP providers with poor Internet networks usually provides USB modems in an effort to limit your internet connection to one computer and to help them manage their bandwidth by providing you internet service only when you turn on your computer." 

But that doesn't mean ejr is stuck.

"However, you can connect your RTP300 phone adapter to your computer through the Ethernet connection and by creating a network bridge to share your internet service to the phone adapter," bmardini adds. "Then you can connect your telephone to the RTP300 phone adapter to get your Voip line running. The downside for this approach is that you need to keep your computer running all the time to maintain a working phone line."

But then after going through these solutions, bmardini offers ejr his advice on what may be the best alternative:

"The best approach is to trash the USB modem and to buy an Ethernet modem (usually they come as Modem/Router) for about $100.00," bmardini advises. "If you have a laptop at home and want a wireless network get a Modem/wireless router such as mine a Linksys WAG54G-EU for about $130.00. 

"With this setup, bmardini adds, "you can keep the Modem/Router and your phone adapter on all the time and maintain a continuously working phone line."


So What Does All That Voip Alphabet Soup Mean?

Hey, 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

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:, 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, !!
