PostPosted: Tue Jun 13, 2006 6:01 am    Post subject: Traveling with Vonage Reply with quote Back to top

One of the things which attracted me to Vonage was the implication that I could travel with the interface device which would allow me to have my phone in other locations and countries. I have had some frustrations with real world limitations and I thought perhaps a dedicated are could be a good idea. I am currently working on an issue regarding using the WRTP54G router with a Sagem Livebox ADSL modem in France on the Orange network. I previously had an issue trying to find a power supply that would work in Europe since the supplied one was a 120v 60 hz and I was concerned about the unit running on a step down transformer at 50 hz. I am sure that other people have tried to use their devices in other countries as well. Students who are overseas and want to call home etc.

This is only slightly related...


Does anyone one have experience with using the handheld
Wi-Fi phone (UTStar F-1000) in France?

Is there anyway to test my configuration before I leave the US?



Thanks,
Bukzin

I have not had experience with the WiFi phone but do have experience trying to find a open network. There are lots of cafes here which will let you connect but you need to login first. They hand out cards with a scratch-off one time code. I don't know how you would do that from the phone. The other thing is you can find open networks. There are some web sites which track the locations of hot spots like http://www.free-hotspot.com/find_home.htm so you could use that for access. I have used X-pro with a laptop and hunted open networks before so I would think the phone would be similar.

If the phone works in the US before you go, it should work from France. There are no "special" settings. You will need to find an open WiFi access point - some places in France are better than others, I expect. The hotel that I was in (can't remember the name) had an open access point in the lobby that worked fine with the F1000.

I am here in France with the F1000 handheld.

It can see the access points and it shows 5 bars,
but even after the cafe gives me the WEP key, no luck.

I have tried a couple of places and still can not connect.

What other settings might I adjust to get in?

By the way the voicemail to email is working great!



Thanks,
Bukzin

The first thing to check is if the router is giving you an IP address - if the phone's display shows "Connecting to ..." then it is trying to get one (I assume you have DHCP enabled - fixed IP won't work). When the phne moves on to "Registering via ...", then it has an address and is trying to contact Vonage.

If you are in that state, then the next question is to see if it is getting in touch with Vonage or if it is "stuck". Check the "Local Log" in the phone. If you see a string of "Register out" with nothing back, then the registration messages are not getting to Vonage or not getting back. This could be a case of being blocked at the AP because they don't want people to use Voip or it can be a case of redirecting the phone to ask for money (not likely in the places that have WEP).

PostPosted: Sat Jun 24, 2006 10:19 am    Post subject: Travelling Vonage - power supply 110V 60Hz and 220V 50Hz Reply with quote Back to top

This is an issue (in Canada at least).

Vonage clearly markets travellability. But Vonage tells me (contrary to the FAQ info on its website!) that *none* of its adapter power supplies are compatible with both 110V 60Hz (North America) *and* 220V 50Hz (UK, South Africa).

I have a Vonage adapter staioned in Johannesburg. I found that most aftermarket stepdown transformers and 220V powers upplies (with the correct output voltage or multi-voltage outputs) induce unacceptable hum in the adapter.

Why is Vonage not maketing at least one adapter power supply that (like my cell phone, laptop, shaver and numerous other powers supplies) is compatible with both 220V and 110V mains standards?

PostPosted: Sat Jun 24, 2006 10:51 am    Post subject: Use a laptop along with the phone adapter using wireless Reply with quote Back to top

Here is a solution that may work. Use you laptop as your wireless access using the built in or PCMCIA plug in wireless 802.11x as needed for the particular access point. I have a trivalent (compatable with 802.11 A, B, and G) card, so I don’t have to worry what the access point uses.

Log on with your laptop and use the temporary access code you’re given.

Then, plug your phone adapter into the Ethernet port of your laptop. Depending on your equipment, you may (or may not) need a crossover (aka null-modem) patch cable.

You have to go into your Windows settings and allow the laptop to bridge the wireless to the Ethernet port. It will treat them as two different networks with the laptop bridging the two. This can be done in advance so you don’t have to be fooling with laptop configuration when you want to call.

This is well documented in the following threads:

http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic12673.html
http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic4034.html


p.s., I know people using Vonage from England, Japan, and Germany without difficulty. Just have a good stepdown transformer for the power to the phone adapter. I do agree Vonage should offer dual voltage on its phone adapters.

The Linksys PAP2 adapters come with a 120v/230v adapter, everything else seems to come with a 120v-only adapter. No real big deal 'though, just wander down to the local electronics / electrics shop in the foreign country and buy a matching adapter there. As long as the plug fits into the Vonage adapter, and is the same voltage, same polarity, and greater than or equal to the # of milliamps/amps, it'll work fine. Fortunately these Vonage adapters don't use propreitary power supplies.

The F1000 power adapters also take wide range inputs - they work fine in countries with 220V/50Hz, you only need a plug adapter to get the charger connected to the wall.
