Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

March 17, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

Today is Friday, the day we normally run our In The Blogs feature. Yet because a number of bloggers who write about Vonage are still at the VON Show (which is all about VoIP) and are probably going to be blogging their thoughts over the weekend, I decided to move In The Blogs back to this coming Monday's edition. Just for this next week.

Still, there's plenty going on. In the news, we'll go over a big city newspaper's review of the Vonage service, and learn how those funny Vonage ads just might help a college student land an important new job.  We'll also go through Vonage Voip Forum threads about using Vonage equipment overseas in an Internet cafe, as well as recommendations for adapters that work well with Vonage service.

In The News

Influential Newspaper Gives Vonage A Big Thumbs-Up

The San Francisco Chronicle is widely read by techies and non-techies alike in the San Francisco Bay and nearby Silicon Valley areas. So when that newspaper writes about technology, those articles are sure to be widely read.

Today, the Chronicle runs a review of Vonage.

"Though it's not the cheapest Voip service, Vonage's call quality, customer support, and features make it our top pick to replace your traditional analog telephone service," the review says. "It's the granddaddy of all Internet phone services -- if a 3-year-old company can be rightly considered the granddaddy of anything.

"The set-up process is easy, and you have the ability to transfer your existing number to your Vonage account," the review adds. "All this (plus crystal-clear calls) make it a suitable replacement for your primary phone line."

National College Ad Contest Winner Inspired by Vonage Ads

Boise State (Idaho) senior Ben Davidson has won a national advertising contest sponsored by entitled “Exclusive Experience in Advertising." He gets an internship for his efforts.

The program named “From Reel to Resume” was created to identify top advertising talent among college students nationwide, and to provide one college student, selected by their peers and Experience, an opportunity for hands-on advertising to launch his or her career.

To apply, students created 15-second advertising spots and submitted them online. Davidson’s commercial, along with 10 other finalists, was posted on to be voted on by other college students nationwide.

The Boise State college paper reports that Davidson’s commercial showed a live-shot of himself in business attire throwing a rock with a resume attached at an office building followed by the tagline “a better way to get your resume out there...Experience.”

Interviewed by the paper, Davidson said he modeled his entry after Vonage commercials. He said that following that model, he wanted to use simplicity and humor to convey that is a positive tool for recent college grads to get their resume out.

As the winner, Davidson’s commercial has earned him a marketing internship, which includes an all-expense paid trip to Boston to meet with major ad agencies.

To that, let's all hum the Vonage "theme song!"

If you can't remember the theme song you hear in those Vonage ads, or feel lighthearted enough on this Friday to want to watch some of those Vonage ads, we have them posted in the Vonage Forum. Just go to our Vonage TV Commercials section of the Vonage Forum, look at the list of ads you can watch, click, and the ad will start playing. They are fun to watch, and hey, TGIF (Thank Goodness It's Friday), right?

Speaking of the Vonage Forum, and, of course, the Vonage Voip Forum specifically, let's see what you Members are talking about today.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

On a new Vonage Forum thread called Help with Motorola ATA behind Router., Forum Member friendvoip asks an interesting question on behalf of a friend who is a fairly new Vonage user and wants to be able to use Vonage on the road.

"I have a friend who is not highly computer literate, and she is on an extended business trip. She has brought her Vonage Voip box (Motorola) with her and she is going to try to connect it behind the router of an internet cafe," friendvoip explains. "She wants to be able to make and receive calls using her home number this way."

Then friendvoip adds that after reading some older posts here on the Vonage Forum, he's gotten the impression that some folks simply connect to Vonage behind the router while others seem to have to enable "Port Forwarding" on the Vonage box.

"Is there a post anywhere on the Vonage forum or any other help website that gives specific instructions how to enable and configure port forwarding in case she needs to do this?", he asks.

Our current Vonage Forum Member of the Week VonageTPA is first up.

"It's a crap shoot as to if this will work or not... I've not seen too many internet cafes where you have open access to LAN connections, but if you manage to do so, it probably will be plug & play," he writes.

"As far as port forwarding goes, this is done on the router, not Vonage if it doesn't work on the first try, she might be able to beg/persuade the internet cafe employees to open the ports for her, but I wouldn't count on it," VonageTPA points out. "She'll also need to bring a smallish line-powered telephone (or "borrow" the phone from the hotel) to use Vonage with."

Then the Vonage Forum Member with the user name sinceMay2004 steps up with his opinion.

"Broadband RJ-45 in a cafe? Doubt it. But possible," he writes. I can't think of anything she would have to change, as long as she's just using it for the phone. Port Forwarding would be for their router settings which she won't have access to. If the calls don't work, and the cafe is willing to open the ports on their router then he suggests to check this article on the Vonage Forum  for directions on specific ports to open.

We often see threads in which a prospective Vonage customer is about to sign up for Vonage service, but wants equipment recommendations first. Started by new Vonage Forum Member Red_Rhino, the new thread Which Phone Adapter is best (for me)? is a great example.

"I'm looking to get Vonage, however, can't seem to find a consensus on what is the best Phone Adapter, rather the best one for me," Red_Rhino writes.

He then notes that he currently has Adelphia cable (4MB download/384k upload), running with a WPT54G v5 Wireless Router.

Then he describes how he plans to use his Vonage service, as well as what functionality he needs from the system after the service is configured.

Red_Rhino explains he will not be faxing or adding a second line, just the 1 line home networked using the existing phone lines. "I see the PAP2 comes basically free after rebates, which I'm leaning towards since I don't need Ethernet ports on the phone adapter (all my computers are wireless), however will look into a different router such as the RTP300 if it doesn't mean spending more than $50-$60" he writes. "I will ultimately have 5 phones and 4-5 computers on the router/adapter setup, however, hopefully not all of them going at the same time.

He adds that in his home, they mostly do "web surfing, but still, he wants to maximize the quality of the phone without sacrificing too much.

"I upgraded to a 4MB ISP from our current 1.5Mbps DSL to compensate for VoIP" Red_Rhino adds. "We didn't really need the extra bandwidth, so if I lose a little for voice quality, that is ok."

One again, VonageTPA steps up to help.

His phone adapter recommendations include RTP300 (using it only as a phone adapter), a WRTP54G (using it only as a phone adapter), or a PAP2.

Here's a Handy Guide to The Vonage Forum

I have written and posted an easy guide to all the sections of the Vonage Forum site. The article describes most of our key sections and features, and has links to them.

This article will be helpful for Vonage Forum visitors who like what they see and are thinking of registering on the Forum (registration is free, of course). If you've been with us awhile, you may find descriptions of some sections of the Forum you may not have ever known about, or haven't visited in awhile.

In addition, maybe you want to recommend us to a friend or colleague, and as part of that recommendation you want to tell them what's on the Forum. If that's the case, you can always forward them the link to the article. Here's the link.

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 Monday morning with our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest, including our popular In The Blogs and Vonage Forum Member of the Week features!!
