Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - March 30 - April 2, 2007

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

March 30, 2007

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll learn about a contract Vonage has just signed for networking services. Then, we'll go straight to a Vonage Forum thread about comparing two different Vonage equipment brands, and then there's another thread I write about, which is about using the RT31P2 as a bridge  Then we'll update Vonage's stock price with today's prices.

In The News

Vonage Signs Contract For Networking Services

Vonage has signed a two-year agreement with telecommunications-firm VoIP Inc. for certain network services.

Voip Inc. said its VoiceOne subsidiary -- which provides direct interconnection facilities with multiple carriers -- will provide services to Vonage’s domestic customer base. 

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Vonage Forum Member tronixx starts a Vonage Forum thread in which he asks, is pap2 better overall than RT31p2?

In his thread-opening post, tronixx writes:

"I have had Vonage service and the RT router for about 3 years or so. I do not use the RT for its router services, only as a phone adapter. I am the kind of person who likes to upgrade equipment if there is a better model on the market. I have a linksys modem, WRT 330 N router and RT which is only used for phone services. I have comcast. I am not having any issues with the phone service that I am aware of.. I'd just like to know if its time to upgrade to, say, the PAP2 since its newer? (newer than the RT)"

Vonage Forum Member noct writes:

"The pap2 and rt31p2 came out roughly at the same time. the pap version 2 (called pap2v2) is newer. However, if you connect any device into your WRT300n, it will be subject to any QOS or firewalling from that said device.

"Basically you'd need to reconfigure your 300N and set up the DMZ for your pap2's ip address.

"That being said, though, you certainly won't get any better service upgrading. They're both powered more or less by the same technology. I'd hold off," he advises.

After reading the answer from noct, tronixx comes back on the thread he started with a follow-up post:

"I have the 330 N router which is designed for Voip and gaming so i probably would not have to do any port forwarding since I have never done that anyway?," he writes. "I  had a wrt54gs router and I set that port the RT was plugged into to high QoS but this 330 router has that feature built in to where it gives priority to voice, video and gaming traffic. I don't use the gaming feature; I bought it just for voip..

"At any event, with everything being equal, I wont get any increase in anything when going to the pap2 you say?," he asks.  "if this is the general consensus here, I will keep what I have..."

"If it ain't broke dont fix it?"

RT31P2 As A Bridge is an interesting new Vonage Forum thread, started by Vonage Forum Member ssbihli. Here's what he writes:

"Here is the issue: Since the RT31P2 serves up an IP address to the Home PC on a different subnet that the WRT54GS, I cannot get to my SimpleTech drive by saying SimpletechShare.

"You may say, just plug the Home PC into the WRT54GS, but for a variety of reasons I cannot do this.

"So, is there a way to bridge the RT31P2 onto the WRT54GS so that my Home PC is getting its IP address from the WRT54GS.

"If I remove the Cat5 cable from the WAN port of the RT31P2 and plug it into LAN port 2, my PC gets an IP address from the WRT54GS...good news and I can see my SimpleTech share. BAD NEWS: Phone stops working (Phone 1 light does not light).

"The forum talks about disabling NAT and/or DHCP and/or doing port forwarding and/or and/or. Does anyone know if I can do what I'm trying? I'd like to have one subnet for my home and use Vonage."

And then ssbihli gets two answers, both from fellow Vonage Forum Members noct and NateHoy.

Noct writes:

"It sounds like you basically want to turn your router, which assigns private networks, into a switch, which basically just intelligently sends signals to the same IP address.

"You can try to log into the RT31P2 and basically select the option in setup and disable the DHCP / NAT, this way your router won't assign IP's to anything connected to it.

"Or, maybe you could go to the store, buy a switch (they are like 10-15 dollars, possibly free after rebate), and connect your network like this:

"Modem -> WRT54GS -> NAS & Switch -> RT3 & PC.

"This will split the private IP assigned to your Switch to both the PC and the RT31P2. It may cause some flakiness, so if you're not that technically inclined, you really might want to just get everything on the same subnet.

"The best situation for any Vonage device is:

"Modem -> Vonage -> Third Party Router et. al.

"I suggest you connect it as shown above, then connect your PC and NAS to the third party router. This way you won't lose quality of service.

"I'm not sure why you can't connect your PC to your first router, but that would most likely be the best solution."

NateHoy responds by pointing some tips he has posted:

"See option 3:

"Remember to turn off DHCP on the RT31P2 so only your WRT54GS is handing out IP addresses."

These tips worked well for ssbihli, who responds to them by writing about Nate's diagrams (found on that link), "those are some nice diagrams. It makes total sense. Thanks. I'll give it a shot this weekend."

I really like it when threads go like that.

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.
