Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

September 11, 2007

By Daniel Connor

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

First, let's check in on some Vonage news. Then we'll go to two Vonage Forum threads, one about a router configuration question, and then another thread that is from a user whose line goes dead when his home phone rings. We'll also check in on Vonage's stock price.

In The News

Vonage Introduces New Calling Plans

In a statement, Vonage says that to give customers an easy, affordable way to stay in touch with family and friends across the globe, Vonage, a leading provider of digital phone service, today announced the availability of five unlimited international calling plans. With these calling plans, Vonage continues to unveil innovative services that are relevant and responsive to the way customers want to communicate and live.

These unlimited calling plans are available for new and existing U.S. customers that subscribe to Vonage's Premium Unlimited Residential Plan. Customers are still given the added benefit of one cent per minute calling to several locations such as Mexico City and China, in addition to free calls to France, UK, Italy, Spain, and Ireland. *

These plans help customers avoid the challenge of keeping track of minutes and rates when using limited and complicated calling cards, as well as some carriers' calling plans.

"With Vonage's new unlimited international calling plans, customers can call across the world at a low cost without worrying about counting minutes," says Jeffrey Citron, Chairman, Chief Strategist, and Interim CEO. "These plans continue our trend of giving our users innovative services to communicate when, where, and how they choose."

Vonage has also added a search tool to their international rates page, which allows customers to see which plan is right for them. By entering a specific phone number, the tool provides peace-of-mind regarding what plans include the number, and if unavailable, the low price-per-minute cost of the specified call.

New and existing customers can add these unlimited international calling plans, find complete details and a list of available locations at

On The Vonage Voip Forum

New Vonage Forum Member begotus fires up a Vonage Forum thread that he has decided to name, Configuring a cable router and Voip router in a home network.

Betogus writes:

"I have a Motorola SBG900 cable modem/wireless 1-port router and a Motorola VT2442 Voip modem/4-port router. I am trying to connect 1 wireless computer (to the SBG900) and 2 wired computers (to the VT2442). Currently, I have DHCP enabled on both routers and the VT2442 is plugged into the only port of the SBG900. Phone and internet work great, but the computers cannot see each other across the two LANs.

How can I configure my home network to get all devices on the same LAN and, if possible, to prioritize the Voip traffic?

I couple possibilities: a network bridge (not sure what this is, if it's appropriate, or how to do it) or disable one of the 2 DHCP servers (not sure how to make this work - haven't tried)."

An answer comes from navydavy2001, who is one of our most frequent Vonage Forum posters:

I vote for the easiest solution:

1) Disable DHCP in the Voip router. Leave it on in the cable router.

2) Assign an IP address to the Voip router in the same range as the cable router is supplying. (In other words, if the DHCP is handing out 192.168.1.X to everything, assign the Voip router something like That keeps it in the same network, but far enough away to prevent IP conflicts.)

Edit: I just looked up your cable router, and it does not have a built-in QOS function for prioritizing traffic. Check out a device called the HBB1 made by a company named Hawking. See if that would serve your purpose.

Vonage Forum Member heinsite establishes a Vonage Forum thread that he decides to name, line goes dead when home phone rings.

"I am on Windstream 3meg, regularly hit 2600kbps down and 322kbps up," heinsite writes. "When I am on a Vonage call and my home phone rings, the Vonage line goes dead and internet connection on my computer hesitates for several seconds. I know that the lines coming to my home office are twisted together and taped. My Vonage modem is plugged into my linksys router which is plugged into my Speedstream modem and then into my house telephone jack."

Steve48 reads this post and then writes,

"First unplug the Vonage adapter from the home phone wiring jack. Plug a phone directly into the Vonage adapter and see if the problem repeats with that configuration." He then asks heinsite what kind of broadband service he has.

"My phone is plugged directly into the Vonage port #1 device," heinsite replies. "My Vonage DLS connection is to my Speedstream modem and the Speedstream modem is the device that goes into my home wiring wall jack."

This reply gives Steve48 the information he needs to make a recommendation.

"OK, now I understand," Steve48 answers. "The DSL is on the house wiring, but the phone output of the Vonage box goes right to the phone and doesn't use the house wiring at all. Is that correct? I saw in the VoIP forum that you were sent here, but it actually doesn't sound like a house wiring problem if the Vonage phone output isn't connected to the house wiring. Not that it matters.

"Is your computer connected directly to the Linksys router, or does it get its service through the Vonage device?,"Steve48 continues. "Which Vonage device is it? If you plug the computer directly into the Linksys (if it isn't already), do you still get a hesitation in internet service when the phone rings? How about if the computer is plugged directly into the modem?"
