You'll probably get more opinion then facts. Both adapters will work well for you. The dlink uses the newer TI chipset, which I found to provide better voice quality, and less background noise.

However, the pap2 is a great choice and has been proven to be very reliable.

Just make sure that if you travel, you have a router to connect your Vonage adapter into, assuming you plan on using your pc at the same time. Otherwise, get the vt2442 or vt2142, which both include a router and would be great for travelling.

they'll both be the same, with respect to what bandwidth resources they use. So it won't make a difference with respect to which one is best when surfing the internet. They are both just phone adapters which must be plugged into an existing router. So if you do a lot of uploads/downloads/surfing/etc while talking on the phone you'll need to enable QoS on the router you plug the Vonage phone adapter into to make sure you prioritize traffic from it. See Natehoy's help files at:

http://vonage.nmhoy.net/

They helped me get a handle on all the lingo Smile

If you want a phone adapter with a router built in, I would recommend the vt2442 or vt2142 from Motorola.

Yes, I used the PAP2 for a couple of weeks and then returned it. I subsequently purchased a dlink vta for $10 at BestBuy. I also have the vt2442.

Out of all of them, I like the dlink voice quality better. Less static and background noise and more natural sounding. But I did have to get my wrt54gs (version 2.0) router qos configured correctly, which I seem to have done with the latest 'Tomato' 3rd party firmware.

is there a website.. that i could buy the D-LINK VTA phone adapter... because iam currectly overseas.. iam if i buy if though the Vonage home page.. they dont ship internationaly...

so i need to buy it online... in onther store so they can ship it out to me.. and then all i would have to do is active the mac address...

I'm not sure. I found mine at FutureShop here in Canada. But it's not listed on their website.

If you can't find the dlink, the pap2 will work just as well for you. It's a great reliable adapter Smile

http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=490

maybe dlink will ship it internationally. Try them and see.

for most people it will work right out of the box. But, if you're doing a lot of simulataneous upload/download it could affect the Voip service. In this case you will need to enable QoS to prioritize Voip packets. See the links I provided above for more info.
