PostPosted: Thu Jun 03, 2004 8:39 pm    Post subject: problems receiving LD calls Reply with quote Back to top

Hey folks,
I'm experiencing a problem that I can't seem to figure out. I have my Motorola box behind my Linksys BEFW11S4 router with a static IP address outside the DHCP range. I also have the Motorola box in pass-through mode because I have a PC hanging off the box that needs to access the other three PCs through filesharing. Anyhow, I have forwarded what I think are the necessary ports to the Motorola box' IP (5060-5061, 53, 69, 10000 all UDP). Should I be able to ping the Motorola box using the static IP? If so, I get no response. Local calls appear with Call Display and my phone's message indicator flashes when there is a message in voice mail. I just received a long distance call and my phone did not ring. It was immediately forwarded to my cell phone (as I have it configured before being shunted to voice mail). The caller left a message, but the message indicator on my phone did not flash and picking up the phone to listen to the dial tone did not indicate that there was a message in voice mail. In fact, there was indeed a voice mail message. This, after a 10 minute waiting period. I just re-checked the Motorola's config pages to be certain that it is set to the same IP address whose ports are forwarded and I don't see anything wrong. What's up with this? Have I done something wrong in the config? All of this was working just fine yesterday.
Thanks for any help anyone might be able to provide,
Dave

Vonage says you should forward ports 10,000 - 20,000 (!) in addition to the lower ones you did. If you only forwarded port 10,000 in that range you might have missed a call. I've only seen 10,000 and 10,002 used here for in and outbound calls. Try forwarding 10,000 - 10,010. I doubt you'd ever need all those ports to go through.

My mistake, I did have 10,000-20,000 forwarded- just didn't check my note before sending it. Any ideas now?

Just tried putting the Motorolla box in front of the router and still get the same problem. No message light indicator on my phone and no rapid dial tone to indicate a message is waiting. Long distance calls are still not causing my phone to ring and are being sent directly to my cell, then to voicemail. This was all working behind the router 2 days ago. I just got the Motorola box and signed up with Vonage. These are the first 2 LD calls I have received! I'll be sending it back and scrapping Vonage if this persists.

I think this problem must have been at Vonage's end because, without me doing anything, everything started working and all of a sudden, all my voice mail messages were emailed to me. Does this sort of thing happen often with Vonage because I'd rather nothave to deal with outages like this?

Hmm. Thought things were back to normal, but not so. Just tried leaving a message to myself to see if the dial tone changed or if the voice mail blinking light on my cordless returned. Nada. Did get an email announcement, though. Assuming the problem is at my end and not Vonage's (not too likely, but worth a shot), what could possibly be going on here?
I replaced the Motorola box back behind the router, gave it a static IP, configured the Gateway address to match that of my router, gave the standard 255.255.255.0 subnet, configured the DNS addresses to match that of my ISP's (have to do the same thing with my router), and forwarded the strings of UDP ports via router to the static addy of the Motorola. Sound OK? Since I have a 4rth PC in my set-up, the Motorola box does not have NAT enabled and has a PC hanging off the PC port. Should I be able to ping the Motorola box via the static IP address? Can't seem to be able to do that...don't get a response.

Anyone?

Now I see....

If you call your local Vonage voicemail number and leave yourself a message, you will NOT subsequently get a fast beeping dialtone or a message indicator light flash on your phone. However, received calls that eventually get pitched to voicemail DO.

On top of that....

If you lose your connection to your ISP, someone calls your Vonage number then gets shunted to voicemail, you will not be alerted of this message by either a fast-beeping dialtone or message indicator light on the phone when your ISP connection resumes.

At least this is the case with me.

Anyone with any suggestions?

Someone mentioned leaving yourself a message. My wife misses the ability to "leave a memo on the answering machine" now that we're using Vonage and its voicemail. I tried calling our local voicemail # and after entering 00 it says press # to leave a message, but then asks for your mailbox number and nothing I tried worked (phone number with and without areacode and voicemail password). How do you do this?
