Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

March 1, 2007

By Daniel Connor

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

First, I'd like to repeat an announcement I first made in yesterday's Digest:

In an effort to assist me in dealing with spam posts and other rule violations, I have installed a new post report feature. Logged in member will now see in every post. Clicking on it will generate a simple popup box for post reporting. It then will notify me immediately.

Members are asked to use this tool and to not respond to the offending post.

In the news, we'll read about what a key Vonage executive sees as some of the differences between Vonage and Skype (which some people compare Vonage to ,inaccurately in my opinion) Then let's go straight to a Vonage Forum thread about Vonage adapter set-up issues, and then there's this thread about. And we'll check in on Vonage's stock price.

In The News

Vonage Exec Explains The Difference Between Vonage and Skype

Voip News is running an interview with Vonage executive Michael Tribolet. In a portion of the interview, Tribolet talks about what he sees as some of the key differences between Skype and Vonage. Here's a small portion of the interview.

Voip News: On a related note, what did you think of Martin Geddes's comment that Vonage "[needs] to take a leaf out of Skype's book and do something that the PSTN cannot do. This could be integration with presence, encryption, higher voice quality, voicemail stored at the end points, etc." Sound like good ideas? What could Vonage do about executing on these or other new ideas to differentiate itself?

Michael Tribolet: We do things similar to that today. We provide voice mail plus, which delivers your voice-mail file to your registered email. We have Vonage-to-Vonage calling and even an Instant Message/Voice Message program called Vonage Talk.

Unlike Skype, Vonage subscribers are not tethered to their computer. Vonage service works with regular phones. As such, we have Enhanced 911 capabilities where Skype does not.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Today, the first Vonage Forum thread we will review is by apson. The name of the thread he has started is VT1005 not showing up on network, not in DHCP table.

"I just bought a VT1005 from a Target store and set up an account on," apson tells us.

"I attempted to connect the VT1005 to my network router which is a Linksys WRT54G. I expected this device to simply show up in my DHCP table and be accessible from my network. It did not," apson explains.

Then apson writes that he then tried to connect his PC to the PC connection via the supplied network cable. 

"According to the supplied documentation, I should be able to access the config via http at," he writes. "However, the network connection wouldn't even succeed. It would hang when attempting to acquire a network address from the VT1005. I've Google-d this issue to death but all I can find are issues people have had AFTER being able to configure the device (configuring network/port pinholes, etc).

Apson explains his intention is to connect the VT1005 behind his wifi router, using the Non-prioritized configuration. But as he points out, "his is neither here nor there considering I can't even get the device to work."

Well, apson draws some comments from fellow Vonage Forum Members who would like to help him do just that.

The first comment is from our most frequent poster- Steve48.

"You seem to be doing all the right things. Assuming that you're booting the WRT54G first, and then the VT1005, you should be able to see the VT in the DHCP table," Steve48 writes. "Also assuming that your computer is set up for DHCP, then plugging it into the VT PC jack and re-booting should get you access to the admin page. Since it doesn't, you may have a defective unit. By the way, I assume that the phone isn't working. Is that correct?"

As to next steps, Steve48 suggests to apson that he might want to try disconnecting the VT from his system. 

"Just plug a PC into the VT PC port again, re-boot the VT, then the PC. See if you can get access to the VT admin page that way," Steve48 suggests that apson do. "If not, the default settings on the VT may somehow have gotten changed. That can be a problem, since the VT has no reset button. You could try setting the PC up with a static address in the normal range for the VT's LAN- for example. Re-boot and try again. 

"If you still can't get to the admin page," Steve48 concludes, "then I'd conclude that you need to exchange the unit."

Fellow Vonage Forum Member toolio follows up with some ideas and suggestions of his own for apson.

"When trying to access your VT1005 did you set up the correct gateway and subnet on the computer's network connection?," toolio asks. "Connecting the ATA directly to a PC and simply entering the ATA's address usually doesn't work. 

"I'm assuming there is a reset option in the configuration menu once you get that far, which you could try," adds toolio. "Or at least, as has already been suggested, you could then set up the Vonage ATA with a static IP."

Let's go over to our Hard Wiring-Installation Forum section of the Vonage Forums for a thread I think you will be interested in called Printer won't work when routed through RT31P2. The thread has been started by Vonage Forum Member lisadford.

First, lisadford writes her setup:

I have the current configuration:
Motorola Surfboard SBG900 Modem/Wireless router
>Linksys RT31P2 Broadband router
>phone line and HP 7310 All-in-One printer.

Now to her specific question:

"Problem: I can only send jobs to the printer through my wireless laptop when it is connected DIRECTLY to the Motorola Modem/Wireless router. (Configuration: SBG900>HP 7310 via ethernet)," she writes. "This means I must unplug my RT31P2 every time I want to print (and not be able to make/receive calls)

"I cannot see the printer on the network (nor print to it) when it is connected to the Linksys router. So right now, I can either make a phone call OR print
I am not an expert by any means, and would appreciate a clear explanation as to how I can get my printer recognized and send jobs via the wireless network while being able to make calls at the same time," she asks.

Once again, it is Steve48 who delivers the answer.

"The problem is that the printer and your laptop are on different sub-nets," Steve48 explains. "You might want to take a look at this thread discussing bridge mode:

Then Steve48 suggests another course of action.

"Plug your laptop directly into the RT31P2 and log on to the admin page. Disable the DHCP function in the RT31P2. Log off and unplug the laptop," Steve48 recommends. 

"Now change the cabling on the RT31P2 so that the cable from the modem/router to the RT31P2 goes to a LAN port on the RT31P2 instead of the WAN (internet) port," he suggests. "Run another cable from the RT31P2 WAN port to one of its own LAN ports. Plug the printer into the third RT31P2 LAN port. Re-boot everything and it should work."

Vonage Stock Report

On Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at $5.20 a share, which was identical to Tuesday's closing price of $5.20 a share, but then again it was four cents higher than the day's lowest price for Vonage stock, and that was $5.16 a share. Total Vonage shares traded on Wednesday added up to be 758,900 shares.

We've Updated Our VoIP Speed Test

Because we get new Vonage Forum Members here all the time, I'll 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.

That's what's hot about Vonage today. Check with us tomorrow for our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest.
