seee, now those are the results that ppl here want to see..

if you could, runa test call to Boston or Montreal on testyourvoip.com as they are in this Continent.. there will be less latency..

from your test results you have shown us, you have VERY poor QOS, and bad latency..

testyourvoip.com has nothing to do with Vonage servers, so if this test indicates poorly, you're gonna be after Shaw, not Vonage..

there are very few ppl on this forum who work for Vonage, we are all just users of the service, and are now here to help ppl like you who are not able to enjoy the benifits of Vonage..


but, if you could place a test call to Boston would be great, thats the site that most ppl choose.. sorry I should have told you that in my previous post..



also, I just wanted to verify what you said about your network setup, you're running right from your Shaw Cable Modem into your Vonage issued ATA right? no other routers/switches??

i suspect you're going to be going after Shaw...
at some point I read that Shaw was charging an extra $10/mo fee for 'improved QOS' for use with 'outside' Voip services, such as Vonage and Primus and others.. Shaw want's you to use THEIR Voip service, so they don't want to provide you with good QOS for you to use Vonage, unless you pay them that extra monthly fee.. you may need to look into that....

Well, after much talk with Vonage he had Chris in some high end tech support call me. He right a way knew that they were having problems with outgoing calls in Canada. The out going calls go all the way to NY and he made a change so they go through a different gateway and my calls are so far clear and no problem!
I am so very happy and only hope that others that are having out going call problems can not go through as many hoops that I had to in order to keep their Vonage! I am almost happy again!

I'm glad that it seems to be working better right now. I have a concern or two about the solution. Although you've given me a little new information into the issue. Your later scores are improved and probably adequate (from a quick scan).

Do you know which gateway your calls are routed to now?

There should be little to no difference between testing done with the Vonage router and without. The "testmyvoip" tests are not related to Vonage in anyway whatsoever. (Mostly requested as a troubleshooting tool.) Since you experienced some differences, there is/was most likely configuration issues with the router. But since your Vonage service was also affected it would seem to be an issue loading the adapter/router onto the Shaw network.

A new gateway may have improved service enough to make Voip usable now. But, I still wonder if service is optimized. Sometime, I'd like to you see if you still have different test results with and without the Vonage router in place. If there is still a difference, then you can still do some things to make it better accessing the Internet.

Otherwise, I hope you are able to remove the "almost" from "almost happy again!"

PostPosted: Mon Jul 03, 2006 9:42 pm    Post subject: Landlines Reply with quote Back to top

I just got Vonage and it works fine hooked up to the device which is in the basement where my home office is - except that none of my landlines work in the rest of the house which are all upstairs.

I have NO technical expertise to follow some of the suggestions on the forum and the technician on the helpline was grasping at straws offering up all kinds of different suggestions as though he didn't know what the problem was. That would be fine providing his suggestions didn't cost me all kinds of extra money (such as having an electrician in the house to rewire it.) - with no gaurantees. He also suggested I go to Radio Shack and tell them I need a device to plug into my jacks for Vonage - but he didn't tell me what the device was. He said they would know what I was talking about. I'm not so confident, since he himself didn't know what it was called.

I got this service on the understanding it works perfectly well with landlines and although I am reasonable enough to know that all new services have their troubles, the customer service has been terrible.

I for one appreciate Yoyogi's comments and contact numbers. I don't intend to spend ridiculous amounts of time or money fooling around with my equipment to get the system running and if I have to go back to Telus, I intend to communicate why to them.

If anyone knows what "jack device" the technician was talking about, could you please post the info?
