Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - May 25, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

May 25, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

I noticed that a record number of new Members have joined the Vonage Forum in the last couple of days. On Tuesday, we more than doubled our previous one-day record of new Members with 186 new enrollers. Then, yesterday, w picked up 182. I am guessing that many of these Members joined up because of our Vonage Stock Forum- the place to go for news and discussions about Vonage stock- which is now being publicly traded. Unlike all other sections of the Vonage Forum, the Vonage Stock Forum is open to registered Vonage Forum Members only. 

Later in this Digest I will tell you how to register. It's free and quick.

But let's get down to the news, and the story of the day. Or the week. Or the month. Or, for that matter, the year. That of course, is the fact that Vonage stock experienced its first day of  being publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange yesterday. We'll also go over a couple of Vonage Voip Forum threads about router issues, and get this- about using Vonage to call in and cast their vote on last night's season-ending episode of "American Idol."

In The News

Vonage Shares Went On Sale Yesterday

Vonage's stock is now being publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Yesterday was the first day for trading. The final price was $14.85 a share.

If the prices of what Vonage charges for access hold, Vonage will begin to make money around 2008, analysts agree. James DeStefano, an analyst for Renaissance Capital in Greenwich, Conn., says Vonage's revenues should rise from $270 million last year to about $640 million this year, and to $1.6 billion by 2008. DeStefano says Renaissance expects revenue per user to be relatively stable in 2006 and 2007.

DeStefano thinks Vonage can make up for erosion in basic residential service prices by selling more to business and by selling more extras like second phone lines and fax services to homeowners. "We see it declining slightly in 2008, but in the interim it will stay stable," he predicts.

Another analyst says Vonage will make its first full-year profit in 2009 if prices fall by about 2% a year. He says the company could make money in the second half of 2008 as well.

During and after the first day of Vonage stock trading, I wasn't surprised that our new  Vonage Stock Forum (which is open to registered Vonage Forum Members only), has been and continues to be a lively place. The threads there reflect a wide range of opinion. But one thread really caught my eye. The thread is entitled Vonage will use the money wisely, and the thread was started by new Vonage Forum Member RunninMan

"As a loyal Vonage customer I'm glad they raised some capital to expand services. Now that they have over $500 million," RunninMan writes, Vonage executives have the resources they'll need to grow the business.  "I say good luck and lets get some customers!"

"Steady, Lads," writes another new Vonage Forum Member named jbarry. Tis' but the first volley."

Another perspective is added to this thread by another new Vonage Forum Member named LDTalk, who registered on Wednesday. 

"The IPO was good for Vonage IMHO," writes LDTalk, who even writes a blog about long-distance phone services. "It seems to me they got a very good price, and the money will help them to fight the increasing competition.

"There is a risk that they will loose some customers due to the IPO - on one hand you have customers mad because they DID NOT get shares, on the other hand you have customers mad because they DID get shares, and ended up with this large drop the first day," he adds.

"However, LDTalk points out, "with the new money Vonage might be able to accelerate its growth rate, and possibly become a more attractive takeover target."

Then you have this post from new Vonage Forum Member blong2frac, who unlike all these new Members we've been picking up over the last two or three days, joined up way, way back last Sunday. 

"I'm glad they raised money too. Sorry about the losses suffered; but heck, the stock was slowly climbing back up by the end of the day," blong2frac writes.

I should also point out that the most widely read thread on the Vonage Stock Forum is entitled POST Your allocation!!. It has received well over 65 posts and more than 2,300 page views. It seems as though many posters on this thread were allocated the opportunity to buy between one-fourth and one-third the number of shares they had requested to buy under the Directed Share Program. 

I mentioned yesterday in the Digest and continue to believe that one way of looking at that fact is that demand was strong among those who know Vonage the best- the folks who use Vonage regularly and with their strong faith in Vonage, have literally put their money where their mouth is.

As I have said before, I happen to be one of those people. I'm "in."

But you know something? I can guarantee you that many of you Vonage Forum Members are not here to debate about Vonage's stock, but to get questions answered about your Vonage service, or the gear you use with that service. So speaking of, let's go to the Vonage Voip Forum and see what some interesting new threads are going on over there.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

First, thought I would point to a fairly light-hearted thread.

As many Vonage Forum Members know, last night was the season finale of "American Idol." And the winner was decided by a call-in vote of fans.

Obviously when you are talking about call-in, you would expect some viewers to have called in over their Vonage connection to cast their vote. Some Vonage users and Vonage Forum Members had better luck than others. American Idol and Vonage has stories from several Vonage Forum Members about their success- or lack thereof - of reaching those swamped voting lines. The thread is interesting and fun reading.

In a new Vonage Forum thread called VT2442 - Router loses settings during power cycle, new Vonage Forum Member Cygnususa describes the issue.

"Have 8 Motorola VT2442 routers off of one main router on a DSL connection. Overall, all lines working fin," Cygnususa writes. "Main issue I am having is the VT2442 devices are not holding any settings when power cycled." 

Then Cygnususa adds that he has already attempted to use the DHCP relay function of the devices and turn off the firewalls, but they keep turning back on after power cycling. 

"Any thoughts, or is a firmware fix needed?" he asks.

Then dheiy, a new Vonage Forum Member who just joined us on Tuesday, posts some suggestions for Cygnususa.

"Directly connect those router to the modem individually and connect one computer. "this is one at a time settings" using your computer, i want u to open one internet explorer window and type this in your address bar: pops out the Motorola window," he writes. 

Next, dheiy suggests to type "router" as your username and also with your password." Then click on setup tab click on WAN configuration the "type" should be "DHCP," he adds. 

"Click on the box of the override MAC link Type the MAC address of the device inside the MAC box then click save. Restart your device by plugging out the power adapter on the back of the device and wait 1 minute and plug it back again. check for dial tone," dheiy offers.

You know dheiy joined us on Tuesday, the day more Vonage Forum Members came on board than any other day in the 38-month history of the Vonage Forum. Obviously the Vonage IPO and the start of Vonage stock sales was the huge factor in terms of all these new Members signing up. Still, it is great to note that some of these new Members aren't only participating in talk about Vonage stock and the IPO, but are lending their technical expertise to the Vonage Forum. So all I can say to all these new Members who have just started with us this week is- a big hearty welcome!

The fact that we have so many new registered Members makes me think this might be a good time to describe how easy it is to become a registered Member of the Vonage Forum.
