Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - August 29, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

August 29, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll read about new local Vonage phone numbers now being available in one of the major cities in the southern United States, as well as the availability of the D-Link VWR for Vonage Canada customers. We'll go over newly posted Vonage Forum threads about a problem with the D-Link VTA, as well as about Vonage lines and PBXs.

In The News

Vonage Now Offers Local Phone Numbers In Metro Birmingham

Vonage has just announced availability of local phone numbers in Alabaster, Bessemer, Birmingham, and Gardendale, Alabama.
Vonage customers in those cities (which include Birmingham, the largest city in the state can now keep their current numbers or choose telephone numbers
within the popular (205) area code.

In addition to its general appeal, Vonage local number availability is being positioned as of interest to the area's many college students- who are looking for inexpensive phone options.

"With Vonage's local expansion into the region, University of Alabama-Birmingham students no longer have to spend time deciding what phone service to use," said Michael Tribolet, president of Vonage America. "In addition, we're providing consumers in the Greater Birmingham region broadband telephone service plans, which include unlimited calling throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico, Canada, the U.K., Ireland, France, Italy and Spain at a great price, without confusing bills and surprising charges," he added.

Vonage Canada and networking technology manufacturer D-Link Canada announced the availability of the D-Link VWR in the Canada. The D-Link VWR allows customers to set up a wireless-B/G network while accessing their Vonage service.

D-Link VWR is four devices in a box. It includes a Wireless-B/G Access Point; a built-in 4-port switch to connect wired Ethernet devices; a router function so the entire network can securely share a single cable or DSL Internet connection, and two standard telephone jacks, allowing for multiple phone lines. Bundled with Vonage's Internet telephony service, it offers customers the hardware and all needed to begin talking.

"We are happy to work once again with Vonage to provide consumers with more hardware choices when signing up for their Vonage service," said D-Link Canada's broadband sales manager Kajer Boadway. "With D-Link's expertise in networking devices and Vonage's leading edge phone service, customers are getting the best of both worlds with the D-Link VWR."

Customers wanting to get started making Vonage phone calls only need to get a high speed Internet connection and the D-Link VWR router. They can then simply connect their D-Link VWR router to their high-speed Internet connection and any touchtone telephone. Once activated, they simply pick up their phone and start making and receiving calls.

For Vonage Canada customers, the D-Link VWR is currently available online for $74.99, after a $65.00 instant rebate.

Vonage and D-Link had launched the VWR last Wednesday in the U.S. The new device is currently being sold online for $59.99 (U.S.), after a $40 instant rebate. The price difference is largely because of the currency differences in the two countries.

By the way, that reminds me: check out our Vonage Canada Forum at

On The Vonage Voip Forum

New Vonage Forum Member dan_1979 (great name, by the way) has begun a new thread with a title that tells us the question he is asking. He calls this thread, D-Link VTA-VD Connection Issue - 4 Blinking Lights.

"VTA-VD Device makes it's way through power cycle, and stops at 'Registration with Vonage'," he writes. "Power up cycle has stopped at the 4 blinking lights stage (VTA registering w/ vonage). I have disabled all firewalls, and still no go."

Then dan_1979 says he will apologize if this has been addressed previously in the Vonage Forum, but he has searched and not been able to find an answer so far.

Well, dan_1979, someone had to ask first. Your fellow Vonage Forum Member Steve48 sees your question, and has one for you.

"Did Vonage supply the adapter?," he asks. "If not, did you register it with them? If it's registered, can you get it to work by plugging it directly into the modem?"

And then dan_1979 answers Steve's question by posting, "yes, Vonage did supply the modem. "And when hooked from the cable modem directly into the phone adapter, it blinks twice and then pauses (repeatedly) indicating it's attempting to obtain IP address. This repeats even when I reset both the cable modem and the adapter.

"Green light repeats 4 times once it's hooked up to the Linksys router," an_1979 adds- which means it's failing once it attempts to sync with (the) router."

"I assume that your Internet service provides IP's dynamically and that your router is set up as a DHCP server as well. Is this correct?," Steve48 asks.

"When you say that you reset the VTA, do you mean that you cycled power or that you did a full reset by pressing and holding the reset button for ten seconds?," asks Steve 48. "If you haven't done the full reset, I recommend that you do so. That should assure that the VTA is set to get its IP dynamically from your router.

Then Steve48 also asks dan_1979: "With both your computer and the VTA plugged into your router, are you able to log on to the VTA administration page following the instructions in the manual?

"IF: Your router is set up as a DHCP server, and you've reset the VTA using the reset button, and the power light keeps blinking twice, and you can't log on the admin page (probably because the router doesn't have an IP listed for it) then I would conclude that the thing is dead," Steve48 says.

Why Can't a Vonage 'line' be patched through a PBX?, Vonage Forum Member rbellrbell wants to know in a thread he has started with that title.

"PBX in a small office environment? I have wired my office's PBX (Panasonic) both when we originally purchased it and when we recently moved to a new location," rbellrbell writes. "I had hoped to drop from four CO lines to two, but re-install two Vonage lines.

"I recently have been told it will not work but without an explanation," he adds. "Could someone in this forum address this situation? Could my system be modified so that I could run a Vonage line through my PBX?"

"I would question the person who told you that it won't work closely," points out  Steve48. Vonage adapters simulate ordinary land lines quite well, and I see no reason why it wouldn't work."

"It depends on how your Panasonic system is configured, but if it can accept analog POTS lines, it'll take the Vonage adapters quite happily," adds Vonage Forum Member VonageTPA. "Now, if you take a PRI line in, forget it."

By the way PRI stands for PRI Primary Rate Interface, the ISDN equivalent of a T1 Circuit.

Vonage Stock Market Report

On Monday on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at $7.08 a share, identical to Friday's closing price of  $7.08 a share and up from a session low of $7.02 a share.  Total trading volume for Vonage on Monday was 303,300 shares.

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 Wednesday morning with our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest.
