1. Bloomington, IN
2. Insight BB Cable
3. Upload and download speeds: currently, 374 kbps up, 1.49 mbps down
4. Modem: RCA DCM425
5. Vonage adapter: PAP2
6. Setup of Network Modem---->Linksys Router -->Vonage Adapter-->PC -->couple pcs using wireless
7. choppy audio for the other party. I can hear fine, but typically a call may start out OK, then the other party says I'm breaking up, then they can't understand anything I'm saying. I called myself on my cell, and even when I could understand what I was saying, the quality was unacceptable.

I did all the stuff from the Vonage help center and talked to Vonage 2ce. They say it's the ISP. The ISP says everything is fine from their end and maybe it's a virus or spyware. Did virus checks and all is well. Do I just need to be more persistent with Insight? Are there other tests I can run?

Hey,

I'm having the exact same problems. Vonage has been skirting around the issue the entire time I've been calling in trying to get it resolved. They're trying to blame the ISP too but the problem isn't the ISP because I've run all the required tests they ask for.

Advanced Technical Support takes forever to get to the phone, this is my fourth time on hold (I'm on hold now) and its been over half an hour. Normally I hold for about a 1/2 an hour to an hour before I finally get too frustrated and disconnect the call. Maybe that's just what they are hoping for I'm not sure.

Let me know if you finally get any answers on this one... I look forward to a resolution for both of us!

Beth, I'm inclined to agree with Vonage on this one, but let's check a bit more. Your maximum pause is just awful, and it's a bit hard to believe your download speed is that slow for a cable connection. Note that it doesn't match what you say it should be. Please plug your computer directly into your modem and re-run the test. Post the results here.

Kaylie, your symptoms may be the same, but I don't think your problem is. Your speeds and Voip test results are much better. It will be easier to help if you start your own thread. Post all the technical details listed in the sticky message at the top of the forum.

Kaylie and Beth,

If either of you are running a Vonage device powered by a TI chipset, ask technical support to change the jitter buffer setting to TI Defaults on your device. The Pap2 version 1 is powered by a Sipura Chipset, but the Pap2V2 is powered by a TI Chipset. You can also try dropping the bandwidth saver settings in your web account from the HIGH Setting (90) to the MEDIUM (50) or NORMAL (30) settings. Try that.

Beth,

I would definitely conclude from your 2 tests that the problem is definitely not Vonage on this one.

Call you ISP and tell them your tests have made clear that there is a problem with the connection and be sure to make note to them that your tests were conducted with your computer connected directly to your modem.

Hope this help, mundy5

Agreed. I'd focus on the speed issue with them, so they can't use Voip issues as a red herring.
