Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - October 15, 2007

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

October 15, 2007

By Daniel Connor

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

First, we'll go straight to two Vonage Forum threads, one about problems a Vonage user seems to be experiencing with SimulRing, and there is another thread we'll take up which is about difficulties with a wireless Ethernet bridge. We'll also check in on Vonage's stock price.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

New Vonage Forum Member UMP25 decides to open a new Vonage Forum thread with the title of, SimulRing not working properly; intermittent incoming trbl.

First, UMP25 writes his connection information:

"1. Location: west suburban Chicago

2. Comcast cable

3. Upload and download speeds: 10-12 megs down; 1.3 megs up

4. Modem make and model: Motorola Surfboard 5120

5. Type of Vonage adapter used: Linksys RTP300

6. Setup: Modem --> Router --> Vonage Adapter"

Next, he includes the information about the issues he has been experiencing::

"(1) SimulRing doesn't work properly. The trouble began yesterday, October 13th. Whenever someone calls, my cell phone would always ring at the same time via SimulRing. Beginning yesterday, however, my cell phone does ring, but not until after I've answered my primary phone. In fact, I'll answer, say hello, and about 5 seconds into my conversation, my cell phone would ring showing the caller ID info of the person who just called and whom I answered on my primary phone.

(2) Intermittent incoming call problems. Perhaps not coincidentally, whenever these SimulRing problems occur, if the caller calls back right away, the call would go right to my voice mail. My primary phone wouldn't even ring. Sometimes there's just a brief blurb of a phone ringer on my end, then the incoming call goes to voice mail. I've done *69 to see who called, and I get the correct info, but the call never came through. Finally, other times incoming callers do NOT go to my voice mail; instead, they get a recording that says, "The person you have called is unavailable. Please try your call again later."

Fellow Vonage Forum Member roscopco replies by writing:

"You could go into your account and disable SimulRing and then enable it again, try that and if it still doesn't work then you will have to contact support."

That advice produced a follow-up post from UMP25.

"I think I may have found part of the problem, at least in so far as the SimulRing aspect of it," UMP25 wrote. "On my Vonage account, when I went to disable then re-enable SimulRing, I noticed the number to which it was forwarding had changed--from my cell number to my Vonage Talk user ID. Weird, because I never changed that. I changed it back to my cell phone and will wait to see what happens."

Because Vonage Forum Member llnk seems to be having trouble making links with his wireless Ethernet bridge, he begins a thread which he has named, Wireless ethernet bridge problems.

First, llnk lists his setup:

Cable Modem -> Motorola Wireless Router (VT2542) ---> Linksys WRT54g with Tomato Firmware (similar to dd-wrt firmware) ---> Xbox Motorola: IP: Sub: DHCP Server Linksys: IP Sub: Gateway: none.

And then he provides this description of the problems at hand:

"I have two computers connected to the Motorola router using Cat5 cables, and my laptop connecting wirelessly," he writes. "The Linksys router is connected to the Motorola as a wireless ethernet bridge. My XBox is plugged into the Linksys with a cat5 cable and can access the Internet. 

"My problem is I can't FTP into my Xbox from my laptop, and my laptop cannot login to my Linksys router while connected wirelessly to the Motorola," llnk explains further. "The only way I can connect to them is by plugging a cat5 cable into my Linksys router. I think the problem is with static IP routing. I tried tinkering with it but can't get it working properly. Can anyone help me out here?

Fellow Vonage Forum Member butterman writes:

"The problem is that each router is making a separate network so that a device on one (like your laptop) can't connect to one on the other (like your XBOX). I could be wrong, but I don't think there is a way around this."

But then our most frequent poster, Steve48, answers by writing:

"llnk, look at Nate Hoy's descriptions for cascading routers here: . Scenario 3. Butterman is right about the separate networks, but there is a way around it," Steve48 writes. "Basically, you configure the second router as a switch.

"By the way, why do you have the Linksys at all?," Steve48 then asks. "With two wired computers and the Xbox, why not just plug them all into the Motorola?"

Responding, llnk writes:

"The Linksys router was connected wirelessly to the Vonage router as a Wireless Gateway. I wanted internet connections in 2 rooms in my apartment, but didn't want to run cat5 cables through the walls."
