PostPosted: Wed Jul 12, 2006 10:16 pm    Post subject: Which Adapter is better, Can number be transfered later? Reply with quote Back to top

Hi, I was just wondering which adapter is better to get. The description on the Vonage site doesnt tell much about it.

Basically I would either choose the D-Link VTA Phone Adapter or Motorola VT2442 Phone Adapter with Router.

I'm not sure if I want of even need the Motorola with router. I do have a wireless router already a DLink dl-524. Its not hooked up and don't use it right now, but later on down the road I may end up using it.

Basically I'm wondering if its better to just get the Motorola, or get the D-link adapter, then when I need it later on use the router that I already have. I'm not sure if the motorola is better quality or easier to configure with Vonage since its all in one system. I'm looking for the best quality for the Vonage to work.

Thanks

Do a search on VT2442 and you'll find that there have been some complaints about it voiced in the forum, but I don't know that there is anything seriously wrong with it. The D-link VTA is pretty new and not too much has been said about it.

The D-link VTA is an adapter only, and has no routing capabilty. To use it and still be able to use your computer at the same time, you'll need to have a router. Since you do, this isn't an issue for you. I'd go with the D-link.

Thanks for the suggestion. The main thing I'm worried about is that the internet is not going directly to the adapter. It would have to go to my router then to the adapter. I would think there would be more problems with that would there not? The reason I dont use the router right now is because it was kicking me off the internet alot when I was downloading something. To fix it I had to reset my router everytime. I'm not sure if I fixed that problem yet. That was my only concern if I have to hook the Vonage to the router. If the router stops I dont have phone until I reset it if I notice it.
Motorola VT2442 had simular problems? I read that some people had problems setting it up. It seems like majority have dsl tho. I have cable.


One more question.. I'm not sure if I want to get rid of my landline just yet. I'm still a little sketchy with the quality Vonage will give me. If I sign up, and find that I like it can I transfer my existing phone line over? I could only find information about virtual numbers in their Help page. I wouldnt want a virtual number, just the one I have now. Just one number. Can it be set up later, or does it have to be as soon as you sign up?

Recent tests show that uprotected Windows PCs are attacked and compromised after only about 15 minutes when connected directly to the Internet. You may be serving as a zombie for organized crime.

True enough, even with a router they can get in there tho. Just a little easier for them without one. Ive got nothing important on here for them anyways. Those darn torrents kept overloading my router and that was the easiest way to fix it at the time. lol

I can understand your caution about the quality of a new service. You can port a number to Vonage later. However, the option I took to start was NOT to immediately port my existing telephone over to Vonage, but to use "call forwarding" on my existing line to send my calls to the Vonage number. In case Vonage didn't work as expected I could simply cancel, unforward my calls, and not have the possible hassles of trying to get my original number back.

Those are legitimate concerns. With a good router you can set up QoS to favor the Vonage adapter and all is well. If the router you have has already been giving you problems, I would hesitate to use it. In that case, I would recommend the VT2442, unless you want to replace the router that you have.

You can do the transfer later, and, in fact, that's what I would recommend. If you haven't already signed up, I would also recommend- strongly- that you run both the forum Voip test and a test call to Boston at www.testyourvoip.com before signing up. These tests will give you a good idea of what Voip service is likely to be like using your internet service.
