Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - March 20, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

March 20, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll learn about an exciting Vonage promotion to take place this Thursday. Because a lot of bloggers were at the VON Show most of last week, I thought that running the In The Blogs feature today rather than Friday would keep things more current. We'll also go over an Vonage Voip Forum thread about browser crashes possibly caused by the router a Forum Member has been using with his Vonage service. And finally, this being Monday, time to meet our current Vonage Forum Member of the Week.

In The News

Vonage To Give Away Free Devices At a Florida Circuit City This Thursday

The event will take place at the Circuit City at 8575 NW 13th Terrace Doral, Fl 33126, This Thursday, March 23, 2006, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Andretti will drive the Jim Beam/ Vonage car as he makes his return to racing in the Indianapolis 500 on May 28, 2006.

Vonage's logo will also be on the race cars of the other Andretti Green drivers including: Dario Franchitti, Tony Kanaan, Bryan Herta, and Marco

In The Blogs

We read about 15 Voip and IP-telephony-related Weblogs. Some we read more than others, but we enjoy most of them. Face it, bloggers are opinion-shapers. So today, we are going to give you a round-up of what the blogs we read have recently said about Vonage recently.

Here's what the Voip bloggers have been writing about:

On David Isenberg's, he links to a post on the Vonage Forum in which Vonage Forum Member JPElectron posted screen grabs of several tests to reinforce his point that Vonage sometimes doesn't do very well over Comcast connections. Here's a link to David's post.

Preston Gralla of Networking Pipeline links to our post in which, as Preston puts it, "countless people have complained that Comcast is purposely degrading the quality of their Voip connections."

Jeff Pulver of links to many articles written about net neutrality issues discussed at the just completed Spring 2006 VON show in San Jose, California. Net neutrality, which Vonage supports, would require broadband Internet service providers to not slow down or block access to services that compete with their own.

Om Malik of Om Malik's Broadband Blog doesn't write about Vonage this week, but in the last few weeks he wrote several posts in which he is critical about the AT&T-BellSouth merger and what it could mean for the Voip industry (including Vonage) as a whole.

Tom Keating of VoIP Blog links to a CNET article that says that Vonage is way superior to Skype. Here's a link to that article.

Mark Evans of the Telecom .. and Tech blog (he's from Canada, which is a northern country, and writes more posts about telecom and tech) Vonage Canada's dispute with Shaw Communications. Shaw is encouraging their broadband customers to pay an additional $10 a month for guaranteed quality service for third-party applications such as Vonage. "At the heart of Vonage's complaint is the Internet's evolution into a two-tier system: better service (upstream and downstream) for those who pay, and best-effort service for those who don't. He now says the CRTC (Canadian Radio and Television Commission) doesn't seem to be particularly eager to crack down on Shaw.

Russell Shaw of the ZDNet IP Telephony blog (no relation to Shaw, Canada, he has written) links to a Vonage Forum post in which a Forum Member told him that Comcast's VoIP service wasn't too good, and Vonage was the best. Here's the link to Russ' post.

Cowboy Neal, who posts a lot on Slashdot, started a Slashdot thread about the Vonage Canada-Shaw dustup called Your Rights Online: Vonage Files Regulatory Complaint Over QoS Premium. Here's the link.

Paul Kapustka of the Paul Kapustka blog also writes about net neutrality, and what some key industry figures said about the concept at last week's Von show. 

Bruce Stewart of the new O'Reilly Emerging Telephony Blog has posted a bulleted list of the key announcements from last week's Von show.

Andy Abramson of VoIP Watch sees new handsets coming soon that will let Voip users switch from their Voip service (like Vonage, for instance) to their cell, and back. 

Rich Tehrani of VoIP Blog doesn't write about Vonage this week, but last week he wrote about his fears about what could happen if net neutrality is not enforced. He was interviewed in the New York Times about this subject. He blogged a section of where he was quoted saying: "There's no limit to what they could charge for this high-speed lane and they could make the slow-speed lane as slow as they want," said Rich Tehrani, president of Technology Marketing Corporation, a media company that promotes Internet phone service. "There's no way to know today what the prices might be, but it could be anything, and that's the fear." Mr. Tehrani and others fear that companies that compete with the network providers - for instance, the Internet phone provider Vonage - may not get the chance to sign up for faster access, even if they want it." In an earlier post, Rich endorsed net neutrality by writing: "Phone companies publicly will tell you that they won’t do anything to impede the quality of Voip calls but there are subtle ways to alter quality without intentionally sabotaging individual services. Imagine the monumental temptation to reduce the quality of Vonage calls knowing full well that consumers will likely switch to your guaranteed quality phone service at the first sign of trouble."

On Ted Wallingford's The VoIP Weblog, he comes down solidly in the net neutrality camp. 

One of my favorite new blogs is written by Jack Decker. In his Michigan Telephone, Voip and Broadband Blog (which isn't limited to Michigan-related telecom issues, by the way), Jack links to our hugely popular Comcast vs. Vonage thread, and writes that if Comcast continues to do what he thinks they are doing, they might wind up losing customers in the long run. 

From time to time, we like to feature interesting and entertaining posts from Blogs that are not necessarily about VoIP, but mention Vonage. On a new Live Journal blog I just found called marketingirl, she writes: "Got Vonage the other day. That's cool. No more outrageous cell phone bills. Last month's bill was more than I pay in rent! Whoa...Sarah talks too much."

On The Vonage Voip Forum

When Vonage Forum Member hanspl installed the Linksys RTP300 router with his Vonage service, a strange thing happened. His Firefox Web browser couldn't find some Web pages. So he decided to start a thread about the issue. The thread is named Firefox & router RTP300.

"I have the following problem: In about 25 % of all cases, when I try to connect to a web page I get the following error message: Server not found, Firefox can't find the server at," hanspl writes, then adding more details from the Firefox edit page. He says that sometimes when he tries again he is able to connect, but in reading hanspl's post you can tell that he is frustrated and is hoping for some answers.

"The DNS Proxy on the RTP300 and WRTP54G is generally pretty weak," writes Vonage Forum Member NateHoy. "This is a pretty common symptom of that, and it's a common problem with those routers (I have a WRTP54G)."

NateHoy then suggests that hanspl check out this article NateHoy has posted called "Disabling the DNS Proxy in the WRTP54G/RTP300 Vonage Routers." Here's the link.

By the way, a few days ago we told you about Comcast vs. Vonage, a very controversial and popular thread in which many of you who use Vonage over Comcast lines have been complaining about service quality. That thread keeps growing still: on Monday morning, there were more than 300 posts and the thread has been visited more than 31,000 times. Many technology websites and blogs have picked up on this. If you haven't been to this thread, check it out. If you have, you should stop by again and catch up with what your fellow Vonage Forum Members are saying. Looks like this thread will be around for awhile!

Well, it's Monday, time for our newest Vonage Forum Member of the Week. Time again for NateHoy, who was not only very active this week as always, but as with the above thread, seems to have written an authoritative and helpful article for almost any dilemma fellow Vonage Forum Members post.

How To Edit Or Delete Your Posts

Whether online or off, most of us have said things we later regretted, or realized we could have said or explained better. I know I have said my share.

I guess it is that trait in so many of us that makes at least some Vonage Forum Members curious about how to edit posts you have made, or even how to delete them should it become necessary to do so.

Here's an explanation of your options, as I explain on the Vonage Forum FAQ

Unless you are the board admin or forum moderator you can only edit or delete your own posts. You can edit a post (sometimes for only a limited time after it was made) by clicking the edit button for the relevant post. If someone has already replied to the post you will find a small piece of text output below the post when you return to the topic, this lists the number of times you edited it. This will only appear if no one has replied, it also will not appear if moderators or administrators edit the post (they should leave a message saying what they altered and why). Please note that normal users cannot delete a post once someone has replied.

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