Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - July 7 - 9, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

June 29, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll catch up on Vonage's stock, as well as read another review of the Vonage V-Phone. Today is Friday, time for our In The Blogs feature. We'll also go over a newly posted Vonage Forum thread about IP addresses for equipment associated with the Vonage service.

In The News

Vonage Rises On The Stock Market

On Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at $7.87 a share, up from a session low of $7.81 a share encountered in early morning trading. Wednesday's price was $8.27 a share.  Total trading volume for Vonage yesterday was 1,013,400 shares. 

Once again, our Vonage Stock Forum can be reached from this link.

More Praise For The Vonage V-Phone

The Vonage V-Phone has just received praise in a new review on the PC World Canada site.

"Vonage's hot orange V-Phone is as handy as a keychain, comes with a wired earpiece and attaches to a laptop's USB port, allowing users to make Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls via a high-speed internet connection or WiFi network," writes reviewer Nestor Arellano.

"Selling for $29.99 after a $20 instant rebate, the V-Phone certainly baits potential buyers with its low cost and hip associations, according to at least two experts," Arellano adds.

The V-Phone's launch last week followed the roll out of Vonage's Starcom F1000 WiFi -enabled mobile phone.

"It's convenient and cool," Jon Arnold, principal of Toronto-based telecom consultancy J Arnold & Associates, told Arellano.

"It's a clever and imaginative idea," adds Lawrence Surtees, director of telecommunication and principal analyst for IDC Canada Ltd., also based in Toronto. Your phone and data all on one stick," Surtees also told the writer.

"The V-Phone is ideal for traveling business people, but it will also possibly appeal to students on the lookout for cool useful gadgets," Arellano quotes Vonage Canada president Bill Rainey as saying. 

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 said about Vonage recently.

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

Rich Tehrani of VoIP Blog doesn't write about Vonage this week, but last week Rich wrote a post in which he made it clear that he is a big fan of the V-Phone. "Little things like soft client support and support for phones such as these are why Vonage  is a superior Voip solution for anyone traveling," he writes. "Strangely when so many people say that Vonage has a tremendous disadvantage being a single-play company in a triple-play world they don’t mention little niceties like this that distance them from your typical (local exchange carrier) or cableco. And no, I am not a shareholder of the company – I am just calling it as I see it." Which Rich always does, I might add.

Andy Abramson of VoIP Watch writes about Tim Smith's appointment as interim president of Vonage. Andy seems to indicate he envisions Vonage doing more developmental work on the technical side.

On David Isenberg's, he posts several links to pro net neutrality articles, petitions, and even a cartoon. 

Jeff Pulver of makes fun of what appears to be the lack of knowledge about how the Internet works on the part of a key U.S. Senator involved in the debate about net neutrality.  

Preston Gralla of Networking Pipeline writes that a key Google executive says that if net neutrality doesn't pass and Google finds that leading broadband service providers are giving preferential treatment to other companies at the expense of Google, then Google will take them to court. Google execs and Vonage are on the same side about net neutrality.

Om Malik of Om Malik's Broadband Blog writes about some of Vonage's legal situations. 

Tom Keating of VoIP Blog isn't as big a fan of the Vonage V-Phone as some of his colleagues are. 

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) wrote about Vonage Chairman and Chief Strategist Jeffrey Citron's keynote speech last week at the Convergence 2.0 conference. .

Russell Shaw of the ZDNet IP Telephony blog writes his opinion that some of the points made in these lawsuits against Vonage sound like the results of a fishing expedition for whatever dissatisfied customers and histories about this dissatisfaction can be found. He also links to the Vonage Forum in the post, which you can read here

Paul Kapustka of the Paul Kapustka blog didn't write about Vonage this week, but he also ridicules Alaska Senator (and key figure in the net neutrality debate) Ted Stevens as thinking that the Internet is a "series of tubes."

Ken Camp of the Realtime-VoIP writes his thoughts about the Vonage V-Phone. l

Cynthia Brumfield of IP Democracy writes that she thinks the cost of Internet phone service is bound to come down as a result of competition. She also has a funny story about the tech misadventures of a leading Vonage competitor- a traditional phone company with a name that begins with the same letter as Vonage's does. 

On Ted Wallingford's The VoIP Weblog, reviews the Vonage V-Phone, and also writes that he thinks companies like Vonage are having an effect on how traditional phone companies are doing business. Quoting from a New York Tines article, Ted writes that "as the story says, it'll be a while before the Voip companies will have phone companies cowering in fear, but they are offering more services to keep their customers instead of seeing them walk away without a fight. The arrogance of the big phone companies is beginning to wear off, and true competition will emerge for voice services and eventually the consumer will win."

From time to time, we like to feature interesting and entertaining posts from Blogs that are not necessarily about VoIP, but mention Vonage. In a new MySpace blog I found a little while ago called Magic In the Make Up, blogger Amy writes, "We got home phone through Vonage. I recommend it highly :-D 24.99 unlimited everything, can't beat it! Our number is 365-6856, but hey its the home phone so do show some courtesy ok? Calls between 9a and 9p. Silly that I have to say that but people and manners these days...ya never know."

That's right, Amy. You never do.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

On a new Vonage Forum thread that is named, new to vonage, need help with ip address, new Vonage Forum Member huntnplay describes his situation and then asks his question.

"I am new to vonage, and I have a Motorola vt2442 router. I have a Motorola cable modem, and a DLink router," huntnplay writes. 

Then adding that since he connected the wire from DLink to vt2442, and from vt2442 to the computer. now, there have been problems. 

"Before my LAN IP  address( not sure lan or wan), but now this computer has an IP address with," huntnplay explains.  "How do i change it to how it was previously, is that possible? i went to in Internet explorer, and logged in as router/router, but didn't mess with anything." 

He ends his post with a request for "some right guidance."

Well, huntnplay, you are in luck, because you are getting "right guidance" from one of our very most knowledgeable and helpful members. That is Steve48.

"If the computer was plugged directly into the Dlink before, you can still set it up that way and it will get an address in the same range as before," Steve48 writes. "If the computer was plugged directly into the modem, then you would have a different problem.".

"If you elect to plug the computer into the Dlink instead of the VT2442," Steve48 then adds, "then you won't be able to access the VT's admin page, though that isn't usually something you need to do often."

Steve48 ends his post asking huntnplay why he is concerned about having the same IP as before? "As long as it works," Steve48 comments, "what difference does it make?"

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

We've Updated Our Voip Speed Test

I wanted to call your attention to our upgraded Voip Speed Test.

Instead of the simple upload/download test, this one has all the reporting that is needed to diagnose ISP issues such as Jitter and Packet Loss.

The advanced report screen has been configured with a "Copy to Clip Board" button so you can easily paste the results in the forums.

I would like to thank the following members for giving valuable input during the beta testing: reebok, Steve48, NateHoy, VonageTPA, Trowski and scerruti.

For those of you that are interested in the details behind the results, the following are the tests parameters:

The test is located in Washington DC.

The data.bin file for the speed test upload/download is 10Mb with 8 seconds max time out.

75,000 bytes is used to calculate the number of supported Voip lines.

Other variables:

Voip lines simulated =1
voip bytes per packet =8
voip simulation seconds =10
voip packets per second =75

If you have any questions about this test, feel free to post them in this thread.

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.
