Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - July 26, 2007

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

July 26, 2007

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll read about Vonage's reaction to a major action by the Canadian Television-radio and Telecommunications Commission. Then we'll go straight to two Vonage Forum threads, one about choppy audio on outbound calls, and the other thread is about port forwarding. Finally, we'll update Vonage's stock price.

In The News

Vonage Is Prepared For More Canadian Competition

The Canadian Press reports that Canadian Television-radio and Telecommunications Commission ruled that Telus Corp. and Bell Aliant  an affiliate of Bell Canada, will no longer need the regulator's approval to set local telephone rates or to introduce new services and service packages in Fort McMurray, Alta., and large swaths of the Maritimes, including Fredericton, Charlottetown and Halifax.

"But that decision is only a preliminary heat in the nationwide race to sign up customers that will soon be unfolding in the next few months," reports writer Julian Beltrame.

"The regulator has already received applications to lift restrictions on over 60 per cent of all residential phone lines in Canada and the CRTC's decisions, almost certainly positive, will roll out ahead of an Aug. 6 deadline next week," Beltrame adds.

Vonage Canada has a reaction to all this.

Beltrame reported that Joe Parent, marketing vice-president for Vonage, said his company is prepared "to take them on no matter what they do," and called on the telecoms to use the opportunity to offer innovative services rather than try and tie up the market by signing up customers to long-term contracts.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Outbound Call Quality has degraded - Inbound calls fine describes the issues being faced by Vonage Forum Member jborn.

"Recently my outbound call quality has gone downhill," jborn writes. "It is so bad now I use my cell to make calls and only accept inbound calls which have been unaffected.

"Calls placed from my location are very choppy on other end," jborn adds. "I can hear the person I am calling fine on the other end. Inbound calls sound fine in both directions."

Also in the same thread-opening post, jborn lists some of his connection and test information.

Steve48 writes,

"Your download pause and round trip times are too high. Let's start troubleshooting by re-running the test and seeing if you get similar results. Then plug your computer directly into the modem and do it again. We want to see if your network equipment is causing this issue," he writes, also asking What frequency are your cordless phones?"

In answer to Steve48's question, jborn writes a follow-up post with additional testing info. He notes: that he has a 900Mhz and 1 2Ghz phone. Both have the same problem.

The problem is still being analyzed, and I'd bet Steve will come up with a solution.

Vonage Forum Member r3ddawn opens a thread entitled, How do you port forward on VT2442?

I hope this is the correct place to ask my question, as I've tried to Google the answer, but still can't seem to get this working. I'm trying to forward ports on this new router, but it doesn't work. Below is the process I'm trying. Can someone assist me in telling me what I'm doing wrong?

I login to the router, go to Advanced, Port Forwarding, verify the IP I want is selected, this being,
I then choose Custom Port Forwarding

I then enter the information needed.

Application: Remote
Protocol: TCP&UDP
Source IP Address:
Destination Address:
source Netmask:
Destination Netmaks:, can't seem to change it
Destination Port Start: 4090
Port End: 4090
Port Map: 4090


I click save, then try to verify it works, but nothing, I'm being blocked. What am I doing wrong? Thanks to anyone
that can help me.

Then he follows up with an updated post in which he writes:

"Okay so I made a few changes, and now through my lan, I can connect to remotely anywhere, but I can't via the WAN connection
I'm still being blocked. I log in, go back to Port Forwarding, Custom Forwarding, and this is what I have:

I save it for that IP Address,, and go to IP Filters, and created 2 rules there and save to that IP: as you see below for both TCP/UDP..

Doing that now allows me to ONLY connect internally, I get to the Remotely Anywhere login screen via my LAN, but nothing via the WAN connection. I still don't know what I'm doing wrong, LOL..

As to all this, fellow Vonage Forum Member Darrell_G replied:

"To setup port forwarding on this router, your computer has to be set to a static ip address. Have you set the computer to a static ip address? On your computer, go to start/run and type in "cmd" without the quotes, then hit enter. At the command prompt window type in, "ipconfig/all" without the quotes then hit enter. You're looking for your ip address - it should be"

Then r3ddawn follows up by writing:

"Hi, thanks for the reply. My computers are set with static IPs. The one in question being Lan connectivity is fine, I can connect to all my networked machines, all with static IPs set, problem is setting up port forwarding and making a successful connection to the computer where I have Remotely Anywhere."

And then this pointer to more resources, made in a post by fellow Vonage Forum Member twelve01748:

But we're not done yet. Darrell_G offers this link, along with the following advice:

"Where it says "Do not skip this step!" enter," Darrell_G writes. "All the fields below will then be entered in for you."
