I know that Vonage will not allow a used TA when you are signing up for service, but can an existing user make use of a used Vonage TA by spoofing the MAC address on the used TA with the MAC address of your current TA?

The reason I ask is that it might be nice to buy a used TA and keep it around as a spare in case the existing TA craps on unexpectantly.

It won't work. The Vonage service won't be fooled by a cloned MAC. If it could be, there would be thousands of people stealing service by using a "friends" account.

I was not looking to put a TA on eBay, I was looking to buy a TA on eBay IF I could use it in the event of an outage of my current TA. I want to have a spare in case my current TA ever craps out. It's a shame you cannot spoof the MAC address on a used device, it would make a nice, cheap back-up device.

If you're really in a jam and must have one, there are plenty of retailers that sell them like Best Buy, Circuit City and Comp USA. Otherwise, if the unit is under warranty, Vonage will ship you a replacement.

That you can do, with the understanding that you'd have to get on the Vonage web site and transfer your account from the failed device to the new one after the failure occurs. You can't have both working at the same time. Just remember that if you get one on Ebay it must be new and unused. Vonage won't re-activate a used adapter.

PostPosted: Wed Sep 06, 2006 12:15 pm    Post subject: Spare TA Reply with quote Back to top

Sam's Club (at least in my area) sells PAP2 TAs for $29.81 -- no rebates, no gimmicks (other than, of course, needing to be a Sam's member), no hassle. I have a spare still sealed in the original package ready to go, just in case I need one some middle of the night! For $30, seemed like a wise move!! And for $30, seemed like a better move than eBay or used, as I am more certain of what I'm getting!
