PostPosted: Sun Mar 19, 2006 8:32 pm    Post subject: Linksys WCG-200 v2 w/ VTECH IP8100-2 Reply with quote Back to top

Well, after months and months of horrible wireless performance and luggish I dumped the WRT54GP2 and got the new VTECH IP8100-2 and the Linksys WCG-200 v2. After dealing with the obligatory 2+ hours of horrible customer care and tech support at Vonage I finally got the VTECH working. Though, very odd... It only worked when I put it in the DMZ. Despite opening up all of the Vonage ports. Very odd...

Performance on the LAN and WLAN is much much better with the WCG-200 (at least for my network.) And surprisingly, the voice quality is better with the VTECH - despite QOS missing from the WCG.

It's wonderful not to have a cable modem, a router/firewall and a telephone adapter anymore. Now it's just the WCG & the VTECH. Ahhhh much better cable management...

I really loved the idea of the WRT54GP2 - but I just got so sick of the performance issues.

Curious if anyone else has had issues with the VTECH and getting it working - whether with or without a WCG-200.

Regards,

Chris

P.S. In case you guys didn't know - I found out today that Vonage has offshored and outsourced their Sales and Customer Care to India... Lord help us. It was bad when it was in NJ - it's even worst now. Though the Level 2 guy I finally spoke to in NJ (Mike) - he was pretty good.

When the service works - it's great... When you have to call - headache city.

I've had two VT-8100-2 for some time now without any problems. This is my network setup.

1.) Motorola SB4100 cable modem (Comcast ISP)
2.) Linksys WRT54GX2 Router
2a) VT-IP8100-2 (line 1)
2b) VT-IP8100-2 (line 2)
2c) RTP300 (fax only, also only analog line)
2d) Linksys 10/100 5 Port Switch

This network setup handles my two PCs and two laptops nicely, with room to grow.

I have the WCG200 v1 with a Motorola VT2442 adapter and it works great (knock on wood). I was concerned about not having QOS, but just plugging the adapter into a port of the WCG200 -- without the need for any setting changes, and it worked like a charm.

If you have cable Internet, need wireless G, and have Vonage, this combination works very well and like PBXBear says, it's neat and clean -- two boxes, minimal wires. I made a short (12") cable to go from the adapter to the Router and couldn't be happier.

Some minor issues, but I belive they are Vonage Server/infrastructure issues, and two VT2442 problem -- one minor, and one so-so.

I have the WCG200 V2 and the RT31P2 and it works fine (except for the Vonage infrastructure issues).

My previous setup was a Motorola surfboard cable modem, connected to the RT31P2, I used to have to reset my Vonage box once every week to 2 weeks....

One thing that annoys me though relates to the WCG200 V2 rather than the RT31P2. For those that have teh WCG200, do you have the comcast firmware? It seems to limit me to 4 IP addresses. Considerring the device is actually a router it seems somewhat crazy that it limits to just 4 IPs!!! Has anyone found a way around this or does anyone have a WCG200 but does not have this issue?

Thanks

Andrew

My WCG200 is not a ComCast version and it will provide up to 253 IP addresses. I wonder if you could go to the LinkSys website and download the latest firmware and overwrite the ComCast firmware? I am a ComCast customer so it would appear that you should be able to use the "generic" firmware.

Yeah, this is what I wanted to do. but I'm unable to get hold of the firmware anywhere!!! The Linksys only provides a driver download for both the V1 and the V2...

Is your's a V1 or V2? Are you using it on Comcast?

Mine is a V1 and I am using ComCast (Boston area).

I wonder if an email to LinkSys support will get you the Firmware image for the V2?

Ok, shall try to contact them. so when you go into the Router configuration you don't have the comcast interface, you have the standard Linksys interface?

Also, what firmware version do you have?

Thanks

The interface is the standard LykSys one. I have Firmware Version: 1.1.2.9.4-1104.

Rember though, I have a V1 not a V2.

Ok, after a long online conversation with two different Linksys CSR, it appears that Linksys are not making the firmware available.

This is obvious from other postings on other forums. Further more, this maybe an interesting post to keep an eye open on:
