Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - December 14 - 16, 2007

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

December 14, 2007

By Daniel Connor

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

First,  we will go straight to two Vonage Forum threads, one about routers, but then the other thread we write about today is having to do with recommendations for a cordless phone to use with the Vonage service. Then we'll check on Vonage's stock price.

On The Vonage Voip Forum  

Fiber Optic + Linksys RTP300, will it work? happens to be the title of a new Vonage Forum thread started up by Vonage Forum Member lvilleda.

"I'm planning to setup my Vonage service in the following days, but I'm new at this, so I wanted an opinion whether it will work my setup or not," lvilleda writes. "I'll connect my Fiber Optic device to the Linksys RTP300, and the router to a switch to provide Internet to my current network. Do you think this setup will work? Any suggestions / opinions?"

The answer comes from Steve48, who is our most frequent poster here on the Vonage Forum.

"It should. It's not clear that you'll need the switch, though, unless you need to connect more than the 4 devices that the RTP300 can handle by itself," Steve48 writes.

"The one area where you may have problems is if you're doing heavy duty work on the Internet," he adds. "None of the Vonage routers are real robust routers. Otherwise, your setup should be fine."

Replying to Steve48's post, lvilleda writes a new post in which he says, "I do need the switch because indeed, I connect 8 computers to the internet... I'll consider though your comment about "heavy duty on the internet" Thank you for your response, it's been helpful because now I have kind of peace of mind about the setup I'll implement."

Now I will bring up a thread like some others here on the Vonage Forum, is about equipment recommendations. The thread is being called, cordless phone best to use and it has been begun by Vonage Forum Member squiggle.

"The base phone that's connected to the router is 3 floors up and the cordless I have in my room in the 1st floor cannot connect so I have to go up each time," writes squiggle. "What is the best cordless phone to buy with the widest radius? I read about the DECT system - is that necessary with the Voip system or will a simple far reaching cordless do?"

Fellow Vonage Forum Member howiewifi, who is very knowledgeable about these issues, is first with a response to what squiggle asked.

Howiewifi writes:

"DECT is not necessary for this, but it should work if it has the range. DECT in the USA runs between 1920 and 1930MHz, so it should stay away from WiFi (don't get the initial version of USA DECT that ran at 2400MHz). DECT everywhere else in the world runs between 1880MHz and 1900MHz - which is also OK.

"Either that or a cordless phone that runs at 900MHz or 5800MHz (5.8GHZ) should be OK if it has the range, but be careful because depending on what the building is made of, 3 floors may be too much to get through with anything (wood is fine, concrete poured into a steel "tray" will block almost anything). If you can move the base, that would be a better choice."

Squiggle reads this and replies:

"Thanks for the reply. most phone specifications does not list the radius - is 70 enough?," he asks. "The floors are wood but will check on the walls- didn't think of it, duh!"

"For standard US (or Canada) residential construction - mostly wood, a radius of 70 is fine," howiewifi posts back. "A floor is only about 10ft (about 3m), so 2 floors would be 20ft (about 6m). None of that is far. In most cases, floors/ceilings are more trouble than walls (except for metal modular office walls) - walls are normally just plasterboard (unless you have something build in the 1950s when they spread plaster on wire mesh). 

"Floors need to hold some weight, so they are "thicker" - stronger for holding stuff up, harder for RF to go through," howiewifi adds. "Lower frequencies do better than high (an old 900MHz cordless phone would be better than 5.8GHz)."

Steve48 decides to make a post in which he added this information:

"Agreed. My newer 5.8 GHz phone doesn't have nearly the range that my old 2.4 GHz or older still 900 MHz had."

Vonage Stock Report

On Friday, Vonage stock closed at $2.05 a share, a decline of three cents (-1.44%)  from Thursday's $2.08 a share close, but then again, today's closing price was  six cents higher than today's lowest Vonage stock price and that was $1.99 a share. At the close of today's trading, Vonage shares traded during today's regular trading hours had finished up at 862,259 shares.

Once again, our Vonage Stock Forum can be reached from this link.  

That's what's hot about Vonage today. Have a good weekend. Check with us on Monday for our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest.
