PostPosted: Sat Feb 11, 2006 9:06 am    Post subject: Vonage with Mac remote wireless location and Airport Base Reply with quote Back to top

At the location where the phone sevice is needed we have a Mac with Airrport card working with an Apple Airport Base Station that uses an external directional attenna to another Base Station that is 400 yards away. That second Base Station is wired to a router that is wired to Adelphia cable modem.

Given the hardward needs I see for Vonage I am not sure my set-up would work. Can anyone comment?

a question. Are the 400 yards impeded? That is, is that first base station still in your home or in someone else's? If it is still your home, any reason why you wouldn't want to plug it into your home wiring so that you can let the phone wiring do the traveling for you and connect the Vonage router to the first base station.

If not, then is there any possibility for you to lay down cat5 wiring?

In other words, I feel like I have been given a cryptic message and it is very difficult to help you.

The cable comes into a business. The remote locaton is 400 yards away and it is line of sight. The remote Base Station is set up as a relay station and serves one Mac via wireless. Everything is up and running at the romote, ie we are part of the office network, see other computers, share printers, fast speeds, etc.

It is a question of how to inface a Vonage system in the remote location. I have a WAN and a LAN port on the Airpot Base station that are available. There is also a phone jack on the unit.

Is it possible to wire the Vonage rounter to the Base Station and get what we need? Distribute IP addresses setting on both Base Stations is disabled.

Hope this helps?

I know people have gotten Vonage to work with airport. I suggest that you do a search. what I am most concerned about is latency in the signal which would result in a poorer phone connection. It's worth running the test.

go to testyourvoip.com and run it to and back from Boston.

Post the results and people should be able to tell you if you call quality will be good.

Using Boston, as suggested:

MOS to Boston
3.0;
Codec G.711 (PCM at 64kbps,
20ms RTP payload,
80kbps IP BW)
Round-Trip
Latency: 194 ms
Packet Discards: 4.8%
Packet Loss: 0.0%
Loss Periods
Min: 20 ms
Avg: 40 ms
Max: 140 ms
Burst Loss
Jitter
Min: 0 ms
Avg: 6 ms
Max: 151 ms
_____________________

MOS
2.3 / 5.0
(Best with G.711 is 4.4)


Degradation Sources
Codec 0.58 21.6%
Latency 0.09 3.3%
Packet Discards 1.02 38.3%
Packet Loss 0.98 36.8%
Codec: G.711 (PCM at 64kbps,

I don't know what any of this means but perhaps others do. The report says something "less than a string and tin can."

As I suspected, your MOS score is not so hot. Even if you get it to work with airport, my suspicion is that your phone quality will be much lower than a POTS line. You can certainly try it for 30 days during the money back guarantee, but b/c it's a wireless connection, you're bound to have poor voice quality and probably a lot of dropped calls as others have experienced here. I would like others to chime in. Perhaps Natehoy?
