I just found this website today because I had the "second incoming call disrupts first call" problem. BTW, in my case it also affected 3-way calling.
Sure enough, my router was on 1.00.20
Tried rebooting the router several times with wireless disabled to no avail.
After 2 hours with Vonage tech support they forced the firmware into my router and I believe now this problem is gone. The router's login and all GUI screens show 1.00.60 on the upper right hand corner.
After the upgrade, the tech support guy kept saying "it had not taken the change" or "it failed" or something along the lines. After successfully running a few call-waiting test scenarios with him, I agreed to close the ticket.
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Y'all rock!

Fixed me too. I tried disabling the wireless and letting it update itself, but after 30 seconds, I lost patience and just upgraded it myself. Call waiting seems to be working and it really improved my callers having an echo problem. Still a slight occasional echo, but that was with the volume on the phone turned all the way up. My wife was cursing Vonage yesterday, now she's loving it. Thanks again

You know, it's funny, I don't think of recommending that people check their firmware numbers on the WRTP54G nearly often enough, I guess. My memories of what the WRTP54G were like when I first got it (in terms of terrible "call waiting" handling in particular) are blocked off in that area of my brain that stores memories of various types of pain I'd rather forget. (grin)

I had assumed, since I haven't seen a lot of reports of bad call waiting handling lately, that Vonage was shipping more recent firmware in the WRTP54G. Maybe someone just found a shelf full of older stock somewhere. Wink

Probably too soon to tell for certain yet but the two call-waiting calls I got yesterday seemed to work correctly. The "beep" was a "beep" rather than something like the sound of a strangled squirrel and I did not get disconnected when it happened. One call I denied, the other I switched to and from... and it worked both ways.

As of now it appears 1.00.60 solved my call waiting problem.

What's amazing is that during the install problem, when I was talking to customer service, no one suggested 1.00.20 would not update over the 'Net... and that a firmware update would likely solve as-of-yet unrecognized problems.

I was reading your "white papers" on the 'Net yesterday. Verrrrry inter-es-ting. I realize now I should be on at least one knee while addressing you. Razz

Thanks again.

LOL! No bowing and scraping here. I started as a user (with some significant hardware experience, and a basic knowledge of networking), and learned most of what I know about advanced routing trying to get the WRTP54G to act as one. I never was able to get the WRTP54G to do what I needed, but I learned enough to make it work for other people and their needs.

Many, many hundreds of pages of reading later, I know just enough to make myself a hazard to myself and others, and I'm trying to make others equally dangerous. Wink

Glad to have helped.

NateHoy... Years ago I had a Linky router... BEF something, pre-wireless... and that son-of-a gun was awesome. The settings capabilities were excellent--MAC address to IP, for instance--and a log file that was truly helpful to understand what was happening on the LAN and the WAN. Firmware updates even provided new features!

I thought the WRTP54G, coming from such fine heritage, would be similarly solid. Everyone is trying to wring out the last penny, I guess, and that may explain why the current box is such a disappointment (ya hafta kill the wireless section so there's enough memory to update remotely?).

FWIW (which is nothing!) have a Linky Bluetooth adaptor which won't run well with it's software... ah, the accountants... fortunately XPPro can bring it to life.

Thanks again for making me a danger to myself... and the entire community.

Well, to be fair, the router itself is pretty solid. It's a Linux unit, and would be eminently hackable and probably really good were it not for the lockdowns in place.

The problem is twofold.

First, they took a solid router and added Voip to it, and added enough memory to do a standard upgrade. What they did NOT apparently predict was that some huge major upgrade might come along and the router would not be able to process it. The problem only occurs from 1.00.20 -> the next revision, every other upgrade has been flawless.

Second, they turned off a lot of features that make the router great. QoS tuning capability, and the ability to change the timeout values and NAT table size, for example, are crucial for Voip and P2P, and Vonage chose to have CyberTAN lock those down and dumb down the router. Kinda like having a Porsche and putting a 45MPH governor on it. Wink

Oh, gawd; that hurts! I had a '73 911T Targa for 70k miles or so. At 45 I was just getting out of second!

I'm sure the WRTP54G was dumbed down in a effort to match the skills of the customer service operation.

That's not entirely fair to Vonage, I know, but like the economy there is a trend to divide products into two groups... awesome stuff only a semi-techie can appreciate and really simple stuff (actually a dumbed down copy of something in group one) for the masses.

Philosophically speaking, we ought to be "elevating" the masses not dumbing down for them. Yeah, but they have to concentrate on wading though endless voice menuing systems so they don't have time to learn about "hot, new features!"

Okay, I'll take my plaint to another forum. Nice chatting with you!

I am also willing to bet that they did not upgrade the processor in the router when they added the Voip either. This is precisely why I decided to go the route of having a separate phone adapter (PAP2) and using it with a solid router (WRT54G).

It also makes it easy to isolate the router and/or phone adapter when a problem occurs... of troubleshooting or replacement. I do not have to deal with Vonage customer support to swap a MAC address if my router dies... I do not have to replace my router (and re-config it) if my phone adapter dies.

mharvey -

Actually, this is not a true "Linksys" box. The WRTP54G and RTP300 are rebranded devices from CyberTAN, in Linksys cases. The processors are beefy enough for casual use, but I agree - enable everything and they really start bogging down.

Though, I have no doubt that CyberTAN learned a lot of lessons from Linksys hardware.
