I recently switched to Vonage and having great difficulties installing the Motorola VT2442 within my home gateway protected network.

That bring out the "great feature of taking you phone on the road" being a myth. My point is if the hotel Internet connection your are provided with is firewall protected like my home gateway, there is nothing you can do to enable the phone adapter to get connection because the required TCP and UDP ports used by the Voip technology are blocked. Period.

For home network, you can either disable the home gateway firewall feature or put your phone adapter infront of your home gateway and disable the firewall feature on the phone adapter.

Unless the hotel's LAN you are provided with does not have firewall eature turned on, you are toasted because there is no way the hotel is going to turn off the firewall feature nor physically possible to connect you phone adapter infront of the hotel gateway box from you hotel room.

Jeff,

Give us more details and maybe this forum can help. I have no problem with my Vonage sitting behind my Internet router and firewall (in fact, that was a specific concern I had before switching to Vonage) and I have carried it with me and used it at two different hotels and an office where I have no access to the router and firewall.

Something else might be causing your problem!

I've brought one of my adapters with me on the road several times. I've had no trouble with the free internet in Marriott Courtyard Hotels or Holiday Inns. I did have trouble at the Sheraton in Tampa. They have a pay service for internet, but I don't know if that was related. I just forwared my calls to the cell in that case.

If you're a heavy traveler you may want to just get a SoftPhone number and good headset for your laptop instead of dragging the box with you. More often than not, airport security has wanted a closer look when the adapter shows up on xray. Not really a big deal, but just a pain

You're right on one point -- if the network you're using is blocking Voip, Vonage won't work... and there isn't always a lot Vonage can do about that, nor would I expect them to. The problem there is the network you're using, not Vonage's service.

If I'm staying more than 1 night at a place, I usually take my Voip adapter with me, sometimes even do for overnights, and never had an issue. Just last week I was at the Vinoy in St. Petersburg and had no trouble with this setup. Now, what sometimes DOES happen is that the hotel has a dumb authentication screen that you'll need to go through (usually agree to terms, enter the room #, etc) and then it'll start working. Again, it's something the hotel's network has introduced and isn't something any box can automatically handle on its own. Usually, once you've authenticated with the laptop, the Voip box will continue to run flawlessly. Some hotels require you to jump through this hoop every 24 hrs, which is a minor hassle.

ShelChgo: The worst hassle I ever had was dragging a Polycom videoconferencer through Cedar Rapids, Iowa's airport security. This was pre-2001, but still... The best line that I heard from that is, "I've never heard of it... that sort of stuff only exists on Star Trek. What does this really do?" True story. It was 5am and I wasn't in the best of moods either.

That made me laugh . . .

I remember when the first non 800-xxx-xxxx toll-free numbers started to proliferate; spent a week at a small mom-and-pop motel in the oil fields of West Texas and spent at least two days convincing them that my dialup to an 877 number was, honestly, toll free and not costing them anything!

One other thing I just thought of... was the culture shock I experienced when I landed in Iowa City... Fired up the cell phone & alpha pager (we're talking mid-90's) and both showed "NO SERVICE." Not a good sign... Get into the motel room and turn on the TV to find that everything comes on an hour earlier...and during the 5pm news, they mentioned the price of hogs, wheat, and corn...but never mentioned the stock market indicies. It was a LONG 3 months...

Just FYI, but at one Marriott I was at they had an option to obtain a public IP, bypassing the firewall. This option was aimed toward VPN users, but it would work with any service.

I

n 1998 I went to the UK for my customer and tried to carry on 2 cases, each with 4 laptops with cables and power supplies. They swabbed everything for bomb residue and made me power up each one. Then I had to spend 40 minutes explaining to them why I was taking 8 computers and the associated data out of the country.

I've had them swab down the laptops at a few different airports and thought it to be very odd... if I'm going to blow up a plane, I'm probably not going to buy a $2,000 laptop when a $20 radio will do the trick. Even better would be to use something which DOESN'T look electronic and would raise less suspicion. I'm sure the terrorists have thought of it; too bad our government hasn't.
