Thinking about getting a laptop with a wireless card.. I'm wondering if anybody on this board has a recommendation for a good high-quality wireless router that is Vonage capable? I am currently a Vonage subscriber.

I saw a notice that NEW subscribers could get a wireless router free when they signed up... Hey Vonage... what about us faithful and steadfast already-subscribed people.. What are we, chopped liver??? How come no freebie trade-in deal for us?

Now that my complaint section is over, I've been looking at a Linksys Vonage capable router, model WRTP54G? Anybody have an experience with this product??? Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Pete

The WRTP54G is a terrible router... Save yourself and get a WRT54GL. Far more stable, and it'll cost you less than trying to acquire a WRTP54G.

I second VonageTPA's recommendation of the WRT54GL. It's a good, solid, and not too terribly expensive router that does a really great job.

Alternatively, look for a wireless router with a technology called "StreamEngine", which (according to many others on the forum) also does very well. I don't have any personal experience with StreamEngine, but others seem to like it.

I have a WRT54GL, and it's been working great for me since last October, when I finally gave up trying to make my WRTP54G work as a decent router after months of frustration and angst.

Not to differ with the previous two posters, but my experience with the WRTP54G has been a very good one. I've had this router for about 4 months now and its been rock solid with the wireless feature enabled for my laptop. I did add the Hawking HBB1 network optimizer that is built on the "Stream Engine" technology that NatehHoy referenced that is far better for QoS than the WRTP54G.

Darrel_g -

Yes, I may have been too harsh on the poor WRTP54G. If you have one, and it works for you, then that's great.

As you've already seen, of course, the WRTP54G's QoS is (I'll be nice) "somewhat limited". If I were being honest, and not nice, I would have said "nonexistent for all practical purposes". Wink But, if you don't need QoS, then the WRTP54G is a fine router. And the addiiton of a HBB1 can, as you say, fix that.

Another severe defect of the WRTP54G is that it cannot handle P2P at all. Again, if you don't need P2P, the WRTP54G is a fine router.

The WRTP54G, however, would be a terrible choice for the original poster on this thread, because he's going to have to pay more for the WRTP54G than he would for a FAR superior router. Then he's probably going to have to spend even more to add a HBB1, then if he wants P2P at all he'll have to buy another router anyway. Wink

Hi NateHoy,

I agree with you that the WRT54GL is a superior router to the WRTP54G, I was only giving my experience with the router. My primary reason for adding the HBB1 was for P2P use. I notice no ill effects of downloading, uploading, or web surfing while using the phone...my upload capacity (768kbps) proabably has a lot to do with that also. According to the Voip test, my line will support a maximum of 9 Vonage lines.

That particular D-Link won't do you any good with Vonage. It may have a Voip adapter in it, but it's not one Vonage supports, so it won't connect to their servers.

... except as an "extra" adapter for use with a Softphone line, of course.

But you are absolutely right - it won't work on a primary Vonage account, or as a replacement to a Vonage-supplied adapter or router.

so we've got to settle for the WRTP54G that everyone has beef with? i guess the way to go is the WRTP54GL, right?
