I have a Motorola VT2442 set with a static IP address behind a Linksys WRT54G using the 2 cable method. I can hear callers perfectly but they have a tough time hearing me as it breaks up while I'm talking. I have tried a couple Voip speed tests with the Linksys QoS for the VT2442 port disabled and set at high. Here are the results. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong so I can fix this. Thanks!

k, first I would put the motorola 2442 in front of ur wireless router. Obviously this is a bandwidth issue. If u want to leave it the way it is now you will probably have do some port forwarding.

Generally, stutter as heard on the other end indicates some sort of bandwidth problem. Do you have QoS set up on your WRT54G?

I have found, in my limited experience with Vonage devices, that their QoS is sadly lacking. However, the WRT54G needs to be configured properly in order to work.

Here's a little information on QoS and some tips on how to make it work:

Thanks for the replies. I put the Linksys back to QoS disabled for the Vonage port and it works much better. I was hoping to avoid putting the 2442 in front of the wireless router but I'll probably do that at least to test it out. I guess I just have more faith in Linksys as a router than Motorola.

I may have not been clear, sorry.

The QoS on your WRT54G should work great, once it is set up properly. The key is to adjust the upstream bandwidth manually to 90-95% of your measured upstream bandwidth (with QoS turned off).

So,

1. Turn off QoS on the WRT54G, and on a quiet network connection run a speed test.

2. Go into the WRT54G setup screen, and enter 90% of the measured upload speed.

3. Set the MAC address of your Vonage adapter/router into the QoS of the WRT54G, set as HIGHEST.

That should be it.

PostPosted: Thu Sep 28, 2006 8:08 am    Post subject: Change Bandwidth Saver Reply with quote Back to top

I have a simular setup (VT2442 behind a Linksys with QoS).

QoS is really only an issue if you are doing high bandwidth things (eg games, downloading movies, etc.)

Have you played with the bandwidth saver feature? I had people complaining about my voice with this set to the default (highest). The complaint that my voice was "too soft". I changed it to the medium settiing and haven't had any problems with voice quality since.

I give up. I tried the two bandwidth suggestions and it wasn't that great. Fortunately I had someone patient with me and I kept changing settings and calling back. I could always hear an echo on my end which I never heard before.

I think I'm going to have to try and change everything so that the 2442 is in front of the Linksys.

What model WRT54G are you running? (it should be printed on the bottom near the serial number, or just post the first 4 digits of the serial number), and

what firmware is it running (on the upper-right side of any of the configuration screens)?
