I have SBC DSL and would like to know the minimum speeds one would need to have good sound quality. I am guessing the Upstream speed would be the most important. Mine is in the 135kbps range.

In other words, you can set the bandwidth that the Vonage phone tries to use to 30, 50 or 90 kbps. Of course, the lower you go, the lower the sound quality.

And even if you set it to 90Kbps, that doesn't mean that it will be able to attain that speed if you don't have enough upstream capacity and are currently uploading something or running Kazaa or BitTorrent.

You are probably OK, but it COULD be an issue.

There is a trial period, that might only subject you to the shipping charges for the phone adapter.

It's worth trying!

I have DSL and my upstream is around 135kbps and I have the sound quality control set to 90. So far no problems and the sound quality is great.

My upstream rate is 384Kbps from RoadRunner in Minneapolis. I have my Moto between my cable modem and my Linksys router, so I can take advantage of the QOS feature in the Moto. Outbound voice quality is very good. And, now that the Moto is on version 1.16d, delay seems to be much much better than before and overall reliability seems to be improved. The Moto has not required rebooting for me in two full days.

If you can take advantage of the QOS feature, you should be able to live with any upstream bandwidth greater than about 40-50Kbps (if you slect the lowest Vonage voice quality) or about 100-110Kbps if you select the highest voice quality.

I AM HAPPY.

I thought that in order to take advantage of the QOS feature, you had to have the modem in front of the router? Am I wrong on that? Regardless, I have had the ATA set up on just my machine for about a week or so. I have had to reboot three times. I will be doing the port-fowarding thing since 2 other machines will be sharing the dsl here. QOS is good now. A little echo but it isn't often and it fades away eventually. I have it set in the dashboard right in the middle. (50kbps?)

I'll be using a LinkSys BEFSX41 in about a week or so.

The key point to remember is that in order to take advantage of QOS, ALL of the traffic has to flow through the Motorola. This means setting up the network just like the drawing on http://www.vonage.com/installation_multiple.php

And if the Motorola is placed as pictured in the drawing, you don't have to do any port forwarding at all - UNLESS you have a service you are running on your LAN (like a web server) that requires inbound connections to be forwarded to the right computer.

Aren't you asking the ATA to be a router then?

Yes, it's a router if you have NAT/DHCP turned ON. It's an ethernet bridge (sort of like a switch) if you have NAT/DHCP turned ON. If it's a router and you have a server on your LAN (like a web server) behind your Linksys or whatever, then you need to configure the Motorola to forward TCP port 80 to your Linksys router. Of course, this means you must have your Linksys (or whatever) statically addressed to something like 192.168.102.100 or .200 so that you know for sure what to forward to.

Sorry, it's a bridge if you have NAT/DHCP turned OFF.
