1. Location: Folsom, CA
2. ISP: Comcast (Cable)
3. Upload and download speeds: 4096/384
4. Modem make and model: Motorola Surfboard SB4220
5. Type of Vonage adapter used: Linksys WRTP54G
6. Setup of Network: Modem---->Vonage Adapter-->PC
7. Issue I am experiencing: delay of 2-3 seconds between time i pick up handset and the time I hear a dial tone... also another similar delay between the time I dial the last digit in a phone number and the time the call is connected... tested this by calling my cell phone. Voice quality is fine, but timing is off... for example, if I call an automated phone line... when I dial from my Vonage line, I am only able to hear words usually after 2-3 seconds have elapsed since the call was connected. The same things happen with regular calls to regular people; I always get the "hellloooo?" from the other person, because I didn't hear them say hello the first time.... or when I get transferred over to voicemail after the person doesn't answer the call, I miss the first few seconds of the voice message. Very frustrating.
8. DETAILED results from www.testyourvoip.com with a test call to Boston.

First, if you haven't tried re-cycling everything and powering up in the proper order- modem, wait, WRTP, computer- then you should try it. That solves a lot of problems. If you're using a 2.4 GHz cordless phone, that can interfere with the wireless router.

That said, your problem seems to be a very high percentage of packet discards in one direction. Try plugging your computer directly into the modem and repeating the test. If you get similar results, it's time for a call to your ISP.

I power-cycled everything as described above. I have two phones (part of a set)... desk phone and a 5.8GHz cordless.

I agree, very high number of discards. I'll try plugging direct into modem next and repeat test.

I'd say it's time to make that call to your ISP. You're not going to be happy with Voip with that quality of internet service.

What exactly can/would Comcast do? They're about the most unhelpful cable company on the planet in my experience. Should I call with a specific request, or just tell them that I seem to be having trouble with Voip? I'm afraid if I tell them I'm having a problem, they'll shut me down with the predictable "We don't support that." answer.

Thanks,

Mike
