PostPosted: Fri Aug 25, 2006 5:49 pm    Post subject: Must reset phone adaptor and/or router daily. Reply with quote Back to top

Location: Detroit, MI
ISP name and type: Comcast Cable
Download speed : 9131 kbps or 1141.4 KB/sec.
Upload speed : 350 kbps or 43.8 KB/sec.
Cable Modem: Motorolla SB5100
Adapter: RT31P2
Setup of Network: Modem => Linksys BEFXXXX Router =>Vonage Adapter

Problem: Phone will have a dial tone, but all placed calls result in a busy signal. Further, incoming calls go straight to voicemail. I must reset the phone adaptor and Linksys router on a daily basis in order to restore funcionality (it works fine after I do this). My guess is that it has something to do with my router and the DHCP server. I have 3 computers that connect to the router, all with static IPs. The phone adaptor is automatically assigned an IP via DHCP. I don't know how to assign a static IP to the phone adaptor and I'm not sure if it would even help. Any input would be appreciated.

Static IP might be worth a try. Configure a computer to get its IP dynamically. Plug it into the LAN side of the RT31P2 and go to the adapter configuration page at http://192.168.15.1 . Go to the setup tab and you can set a static IP there.

http://www.portforward.com

go there also after making a static IP and make sure all the ports needed for Voip are forwarding to that static IP. Another thing to look into is if you are going to piggyback two routers turn off the firewall on the Vonage device since you are using a bef series also.

I cannot connect to my Vonage (Linksys PAP2) Telephone adapter. However, the book that came with it shows how to do all the settings using a telephone connected to the PAP2. I set the static IP, disabled DHCP, etc. all from the phone. Look at your instruction book if you have a PAP2 for how to do this.

He doesn't have a PAP2; he has an RT31P2.

Just to update this thread, I have tried all suggestions without success. My phone adaptor now has a static IP and I can access its web configuration page and my wireless router's configuration page from my main computer. All settings appear to be fine even when the phone stops dialing out as described in the first post. Note that when the phone stops working, my router is still functioning perfectly fine (all computers have good connection).

I have contacted Vonage, and they are just about useless. Their latest suggestion is to stop using the wireless router, i.e. connect the phone adaptor directly to the cable modem. This is unacceptable IMO since it will screw up my entire network and I won't have wireless connectivity. I fail to see how this could possibly be the fault of the router if everything is working great except the phone connection (which stops working ~24 hrs after a reboot every time).

Any other ideas?

Why not give it a try for just a day or two? It might be worth it just to see if that fixes the problem.

Yeah, I think that's my only option at this point. My wife is going to be angry when she doesn't have internet for that day or two, though. Boy am I going to hear it. Rolling Eyes

I have contacted tech support for the past 5 days, but they have been unable to solve my problems:

1) When calling out, the conversation will be okay for 30-40seconds, then the voice on the other end will cut in and out.
2) There is loud background noise

3) The call will drop in the middle of a conversation

Is there a reason why this happens? It has been going on for 2 weeks now. (we've had Voip through Vonage since Feb. 2005 and it's been fine)

Thanks..
