Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - July 12, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

July 12, 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 go over a Vonage book promotion and one involving the WNBA All-Star Game, which will be televised tonight.  We'll also go over a newly posted Vonage Forum thread on a fairly intricate Vonage-related router issue, and the other one about dial-tone issues related to porting a local number to Vonage.

In The News

Vonage Stock Price Report

On Tuesday on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at $7.04 a share, up from a session low of $6.93 a share. Monday' closing price was $7.40 a share.  Total trading volume for Vonage Tuesday was 1,039,400 shares.

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

Vonage Sponsoring Event For Book Release About Minorities and the Disabled

Vonage announced that it will sponsor the WOW! Facts 2006 book release celebration today at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C. 

"Vonage is pleased to be a sponsor of the release celebration of WOW! Facts 2006," said Vonage CEO Mike Snyder. "For more than seven years, the WOW! Facts publications have been an invaluable reference tool for the business community, government officials, educators and members of the media." 

WOW! Facts 2006 includes more than 18,000 demographic facts on women, minorities, older Americans, and the disabled. Members of the U.S. Senate, House of Representatives and Cabinet officials are scheduled to attend the event.

Vonage To Present WNBA All-Star Game Tonight

Vonage is presenting the WNBA All-Star Game,  televised live on ESPN tonight at 7 p.m. from Madison Square Garden In New York.

Through the new partnership Vonage will also be the official presenting partner of the 2006 WNBA All-Star MVP Award and the WNBA All-Star Game halftime ceremony where the league will honor the members of the WNBA All-Decade Team that was announced earlier this season. 

Leading up to and throughout the All-Star game, Vonage will feature signage during various All-Star events, within the ESPN game telecast, courtside signage, and on the court promotion

"This is a slam-dunk for Vonage! We view serving as the presenting partner of the WNBA All-Star game as a tremendous opportunity to reach women and families who watch the longest running and most successful women's professional sports league," Vonage America president Michael Tribolet says. "Vonage is excited about the opportunity to raise awareness around the globe about its flat-rate feature rich broadband phone plans with this pioneering and inspirational sports league."

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Because Vonage Forum Member ralphnic has a specific router question, he thought the best thing to do would be to start a Vonage Forum thread and name it, Need help with Dlink dgl 4300 and the rt31p2.

"I bought the router dgl 4300 so i could have wireless," he writes. "I see that some people are have the same trouble as me so I want to know if anyone knows how to fix it.

Then he describes the problem: "I I hook my dgl 4300 to modem my computer then to my rt31p2 when I try and make a call the dgl 4300 reboots and my rt31p2 locks up."

A couple of Vonage Forum Members offer their answer. One is iainharvey.

"I have the DGL-4300 and the RT31P2 too and to get my setup to work harmoniously I have to be quite formal in the way I boot it up," iainharvey admits. "First off, I have had trouble getting the two devices to work together on anything other than v1.4 of the DGL firmware so you'll need to get that if you don't have it already.

"Secondly, make all the settings changes you think are necessary to the DGL," he adds. "Assign the RT31P2 a static IP address and put this address in the DMZ of the DGL. Make sure you are happy with these settings as once you get the RT31P2 connected, any changes to the DGL that require you to reboot it more often than not cause the RT31P2 to lose its link to Vonage."

But what iainharvey calls "the fun part" is ahead.

"Turn off all of your network equipment including your modem and all connected PCs, swithces etc. Now, turn on your modem and wait till its booted up, now turn on your router and wait a few minutes for it to boot up fully," iainharvey writes. "Now turn on your RT31P2 and wait for the phone light to come on. 

"Once this light has come on, you can start turning on your other devices one at a time," iainharvey adds. He says he's found this method by trial and error as turning on all the devices at once just didn't work. "If it's going to work, it might take a few attempts and can get frustrating.

Vonage Forum Member RobG is next up with advice based on his own experience with this issue.

"I have a RT31P2 running well behind a DGL-4300 FW1.6, here is my setup:

"DGL-4300: DHCP on, UPNP on, SPI on, DMZ off, Game Fuel on, Automatic Classification on, Dynamic Fragmentation off, Automatic Uplink Speed off RT31P2: DHCP off, UPNP off, QOS off RT31P2 has a DHCP Reservation in DGL-4300 /Basic/DHCP/ UDP ports 5061, 10000-20000 are forwarded to the RTP31P2 via entry in DGL-4300 /Advanced/Gaming/ Setup as above, my RT31P2 & DGL-4300 have been completely stable online regardless of whether either of the devices have been power-cycled. DGL-4300 /Status/Active Sessions/ shows a constant session between the RT31P2 and Vonage on UDP 5061."

On the Local Number Portability Forum section of the Vonage Forum, New Vonage Forum Member smitty244 has established a thread named, Ported # from Land-line, all done but still have dial tone?

"We just signed up with Vonage Canada - it worked so much better than our landline (we had a very poor quality line) that we decided to port over our land-line number to Vonage. I filled out the form, it was submitted successfully, and everything seemed to be going smoothly," smitty244 writes. "They took care of it in record time (June 28th submitted, July 5th completed), and the Vonage number identifies as our old land-line number and everything, calls go to the old number go to the Vonage line. Here is the part I need help with though:

Smitth244 writes that his household had their telephone service with Primus, and he assumed that after the port was successful they we would lose their dial-tone and land-line - the number ported, but we still have dial tone. But not so, at least not right away.

"When I try calling the Vonage number (the ported one), the land-line goes to the old voicemail rather than calling the Primus number. We can still make calls out though," he points out. "I called up the tech support and they agreed that this shouldn't happen - my line should be dead, and they don't know why it isn't.

"To complicate matters more, we are planning on switching our DSL service to Dry-DSL (DSL without a phone line), but since our line is still technically active Bell can't do it - but Vonage says it is fully transferred and Primus doesn't know why it is still active," smitty244 adds. "Anybody else ever have this problem?"

Then jfitzpa503 reads smitty244's question and offers a response.

"I had the same issue," posts jfitzpa503. "The problem seemed to correct itself in one or two days after the transfer was complete.

Fellow Vonage Forum Member Darrell_G is next up.

"My old landline number ported over rather quickly to about five days," he writes. "And If I remember correctly, my landline had a dial-tone for a couple of days after the porting was completed."

What Info To Post When You Are Having Tech Problems

A good number of threads and posts on the Vonage Forum are devoted to a technical issue a Forum Member is having with his Vonage service, and questions as to what is causing the problem and how it can be fixed. Being able to provide such solutions is a major reason why we are here.

We have many knowledgeable Vonage Forum members who repeatedly have jumped in and provided advice that has led to solutions. Generally, the best way for them to help you is if you provide as much information as you can about your setup and the nature of the problem you are having.

This past summer, one of those knowledgeable and always Vonage Forum Members actually started a thread advising what info you should provide when you start a thread that asks for help with a Vonage-related issue. Trowski's thread is called What to post when having technical trouble with Vonage..... I liked his points so much that I have made this thread a "sticky," which means it appears at the top of the Vonage Voip Forum thread list you see when you go to

Here's what Trowski advises that you post:

1. Your location
2. Your ISP name and type (cable, DSL, wireless etc)
3. Upload and download speeds
4. Modem make and model
5. Type of Vonage adapter used i.e. RT31P2 or PAP2
6. Setup of Network i.e. Modem---->Vonage Adapter-->PC
7. Issue you are experiencing i.e. dropped calls, choppy audio etc
8. DETAILED results from with a test call to Boston.

"This will help you get the answers/resolution faster if you can post that first....," he writes.

And I added, "that a detailed title is very important, one that does not have the words: "Please", "Help" or "Vonage" in it. And if you haven't already done so, please take a minute to read the forum rules prior to posting for the first time."


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. 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.
