The PAP2 v2 and D-Link VTA are the exact same devices. It just depends if you want a slim silver box (PAP2 v2) or a thicker black box which says Vonage on it (D-Link). The chipsets are the same (Texas Instruments) and the firmware is actually interchangeable on them, which wouldn't be possible if they were different.

I'd actually suggest trying to get one of the older Sipura-based PAP2's (their boxes have an orange stripe across the top rather than silver and the model number says PAP2 instead of PAP2 v2). The newer PAP2's are better for dealing with data communications such as dial-up modems and faxing, while the older PAP2's are a bit noisier (line noise/hiss) and work better on DTMF/IVR systems.

i want something that will give me good service... i dont care about the fax..or dial up modems....

all i care about is someone listening to me clear and vise versa...

ok now my question is.. you posted this...

while the older PAP2's are a bit noisier (line noise/hiss) and work better on DTMF/IVR systems....


so should i get the new LINKSYS PAP2 v2... or the old LINKSYS PAP...?? because iam a little bit confused....there..

i thought that the new version.. should be better than the old one...

can u explain .. to me about the DTMF/IVR systems..??? who has it and what is the diffrence...?

thank you ill be waiting for your reply..

I'm another very happy user of the Dlink VTA-VR. Have had it for a few months, and couldn't be happier. I've been through many different devices - Motorola VT1000, Linksys RT31P2, and Linksys RTP300. I like the VTA-VR the best thus far (for reliability and sound quality).

Note that you'll also need a router with the VTA-VR if you go that route. The Linksys WRT54G makes a great choice.

both of the devices are just phone adapters, they dont have any routing capabilities so you must have a router in order for you to hook up the device as well as your computer that will connect to the internet, both of them also has a voice response however the pap2 has interactive voice response, that means you can make some changes by pressing the num pad on your phone but on the d-link VTA you can just only listen to the voice response,

hope this helps
