Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - October 16, 2007

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

October 16, 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 not being able to receive Vonage calls while faxing, and another thread that is about connecting Vonage over a wireless network. We'll also check in on Vonage's stock price.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Vonage Forum Member with the user name DaveIsaacs has started up a new Vonage Forum thread that he entitles, Unable to receive calls during faxing (using WRTP54G).

"Hi, I have the Vonage business plan which includes 2 lines - a phone line and a fax line. I have setup both lines with my linksys WRTP54G adapter. Both lines work fine independently. However, whenever the fax line is in use, callers to the phone line will get "temporarily unavailable". In short, whenever I send a fax I miss incoming calls. This entirely defeats the whole purpose of having a separate fax line!," he writes.

"How can I make use of both lines simultaneously?"

Unlike in most other threads, where one or more Vonage Forum Members describes how to implement the solution, Darrell_G writes, "You should contact customer support about this issue." 

Vonage Forum Member flip314 has gone about establishing a new Vonage Forum thread which he named, Connecting Phone line to a wireless network.

The thread starts off with flip314 writing:

"I access my internet over a wireless connection. I do not typically have physical access to the router, and it would not be practical to run a cat5 cable to it. I do have the ability to configure it however I want.

"I'd like to get set up with Vonage, but want to make sure that I order the right equipment.

"If I got the WRTP54G could I simply bridge that into my existing wireless network and use the phone port (i.e., nothing plugged into the cat5 internet port)? If not, what would be the simplest way of setting up Vonage into my existing network? I'd rather use as little equipment as possible, both for economic and spatial considerations. I get the impression that if I were to add another wireless router in bridging mode that I could then plug a Vonage adapter into that, but that seems redundant to me (3 routers in the system where only 2 should be needed). Although, if the former doesn't work, will the latter?"

Fellow Vonage Forum Member mundy5 replies:


A few things come to mind.

1. I would first test your connection to see if Vonage will work well. Go to and try a test call to Boston and post the detailed results here. My gut instinct tells me that your results will be pretty low due to latency issues. Try it at different times to emulate regular phone usage.

2. The way the Vonage adapters work, they need to be connected on the "internet" port to whatever delivery system you have. I do not believe that you can wireless connect it. It needs to be hardwired to the "internet" port. So your first suggestion will not work.

3. However, your second suggestion can work though you would want to make sure that your test results are good since you will be adding a 3rd router into the mix.

4. Another option is to use your computer internet connection sharing feature and connect through your computer's NIC card. I believe you will need 2 cards (1 wireless, and 1 wired). Search this forum. Others have done it especially at hotels. I have not tried it myself. Some have connected the computer wirelessly and then connected their Vonage router to their wired NIC card. The downside is that your computer has to be on 24/7 in order to use the phone. Otherwise, your Vonage router will think that the internet connection is down."

flip314 replies in a new post in which he writes:

"Thanks, that's sort of what I was afraid of. You'd think that there should be an easier way to add service to a wireless network, but I guess it's not a typical configuration.

Does anyone know of any third party hardware that could accomplish this more easily? It looks like I may be making a significant investment into hardware, so I may as well look at all my options.

Otherwise, I'll likely just get the free Vonage ethernet router and plug it into my laptop using connection sharing (a good idea! never thought of it) for now, then add a wireless router later if I need something more. My laptop already has an unused ethernet card, and typically my computer is on whenever I need to use the phone anyway...

As for performance, I get between 3.5/5 and 4.3/5 on those tests, so I should be good. Much better than my cell phone reception here, which varies from 20% to nothing."

Next up with some comments we have Steve48 with this suggestion:

"Flip, you might want to follow this thread:," Steve48 writes. "I think it touches on what you'd like to do."

Next we have fellow Vonage Forum Member superswiss.

"You may wanna opt for the Vonage WiFi phone."

But then flip314 follows up with a post in which he writes what he decided to do.

"After trying many different things, the best thing I found was to get one of those "Wireless Gaming Adapters" for XBOX etc. and hook the Vonage router into that," flip314 writes. "A wireless bridge would do the same thing, but for some reason nobody around here carries "Wireless Bridges" that are called that."
