Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - April 4, 2007

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest
April 4, 2007

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today’s edition of Vonage Forum Digest.

Today we go straight to the forum where a new member is looking for some advice. As usual we shall end up with the Vonage stock price updates.

On the Vonage Voip Forum

On the Vonage Forum yesterday, Mundo, a New Forum Member started a thread with the title, ‘Router or Vonage Phone?’ Immediately several solutions were offered by many senior members of the forum.

Mundo stated, “Looking for some advice as a soon-to-be new Vonage subscriber... I already have an oldish router but was thinking about replacing it. Now I'm signing up for Vonage I can't decide if I should get the new Motorola VT2542 Wireless Router and plug in a standard cordless phone, or if I should keep my existing router and get the Vtech IP8100 cordless phone.” He added, “As cost is around the same, which solution would give me better performance (technically)?”

Steve48, who always comes forward to help the new member, was also very spontaneous this time. He wrote, “Frankly, I wouldn't get either. If your current router is still meeting your needs and has QoS settings that allow you to favor one device, then keep the router in service. Get the D-link VTA, plug it into the router, and plug any phone you want into it. Set QoS to favor the D-link.” He continued saying, “If your router needs to be replaced, replace it with a good one with QoS, and go with the D-link. Exception: If your router needs to be replaced and you no longer need wireless, and your routing needs are minor (low throughput, usually one computer using the network at a time), then get a VT2142 or VT2442.”

The suggestion provided by Steve48 appeared to be helpful; so at this Mundo thanks Steve and replies “I appreciate the suggestion, but I'm confused why you would recommend the VT2142 and VT2442 but not the VT2542. Looking at the specs the 2442 is the same as the others excpet includes wireless. Is this known to have worse performance than the 2142?” Xcrunxc the Vonage Forum Evangelist is seemed to have lot of information in store. He said, “The VT2542 just came out, literally a few days ago. So, not many people have it. Personally, I usually wait to hear others reactions about a device before I would advise someone to go for it. With the 2542 I haven't hear anything either way about it as of yet. I personally use the 2442 behind a WRT54G with QOS on, which suits my wired and wireless needs perfectly.”

He added, “If you don't need the extra ports on the 2442, or 2142 I would go with the VTA. I would not recommend the VTech IP8100 just because it does not have any external phone ports and only supports one line. This hampers the devices ability for future growth. If you decide to add a new line, have to buy a new device, decide you want to hook up a fax or new phone, yup - new device. Thats just my opinion though, its a good device for some, but not one that I would be comfortable purchasing.”

TWiZzLeR, an Associate Forum Member recommended, “I highly recommend NOT using your VTech 8100 as your network router. I have this same phone with 3 wireless handsets and you will not be happy with the performance using that as your network router. Instead, I use a D-Link DI-724U wireless router, which provides QoS. I have been extremely pleased with the QoS feature built into this router and I can now use my phone and the Internet at the same time without issue. Just plug the 8100 into one of the ports on the D-LInk and your done. No special ports to open or anything.” Pepperoni was also a VT2142 subscriber. So he wrote, “have the VT2142. Flawless performance. It was a replacement for a stolen older Vonage box. I would go with the VT2442 if I had a choice because it includes a router and 4 ports. For wireless I use a Belkin wireless router with my VT2142. No problems whatsoever.”

Flattop also had something to say on this. He stated, “When I first started with Vonage, I used the Linksys WRTP54G with a cordless phone. I had no real problems. When I read about the Motorola VT2542, I decided to switch. I have only had it about a week. With only a week of service, I have not noticed a major difference. I switched because I assumed the newest device would probably have the newest and latest technology integrated in it.”

In the latest post till now, Steve48 stated, “I agree with the other comments. Also, the basic reason that I wasn't recommending the VT2542, in addition to it being very new, ties to my comment about routing needs being minor. The combination phone adapter/routers are not very robust as routers. That's OK if your needs are modest. When you get to the point where you need wireless, I figure it's time to go to a device that's designed for just your routing needs and stick with a very simple stand alone phone adapter.”
