PostPosted: Sun Dec 31, 2006 1:13 pm    Post subject: Getting a Modem to work with Vonage Caller ID Reply with quote Back to top

I've got a LinkSys RT32P2 Router with an AOpen FM56-PX modem and just cannot get the modem to recognize incoming calls let alone CallerID. I used to have Identify! (http://www.imptec.com/identify.htm) working fine with Vonage and an older US Robotics OEM modem, but then I changed computer and that modem wouldn't work with Windows XP. Since then I've not been able to find a modem that works with Vonage.

I was able to connect the phone line to my work laptop and it recognized an incoming call (RING shows up in HyperTerminal) so at least I know that the phone lines and such are working. From what I've been able to figure out it may have something to do with the signal strength coming from the router ("DSR is low" message appears in the Modem Diagnostic Logs).

Should I consider changing my router to resolve this issue?

Thanks,

Mike

A phone adapter should be able to drive several phones.

The "low" in DSR means digital 0, as opposed to high or digital 1. This is a digital state and not an analog value.

What software are you using to read the caller ID ? The modem needs to have caller ID enabled to have caller ID show up in HyperTerminal.

Thanks for the very fast reply.

The CallerID software I'm using is Identify!, however the problem is not with that software. I've been able to confirm that the Modem itself is not recognizing incoming calls by using HyperTerminal. When I call my home number with HyperTerminal running and connected to the Modem absolutely nothing happens. If I do the same thing with HyperTerminal running on my work laptop connected to my home phone line it displays RING. What I've heard though, is that Voip sometimes has a low signal strength and some modems are not able to detect the incoming call. That certainly would explain the issue even I don't have any issues with my home phone(s). Of course, it would be much cheaper to find a modem that works with my current setup, but oddly the AOpen model is one that I've heard other Vonage/CallerID users have had success with.

Previously I tried using a "U.S. Robotics V.92 PCI Faxmodem". That modem did at least recognize the incoming call, but it didn't recognize the Vonage Caller ID information.

I suppose the problem could be with the modem itself, but I don't have any other way to test it against a standard Verizon phone connection.

I wrote my own caller-id software.

It consists of 2 pieces. One part runs on a server and has no user interface. The server has the one and only modem to receive caller-id data.

The second part, the client, runs on all / any computers in the house. Caller-ID data is sent by multicast over the home network simultaneously to every workstation.

If a workstation is not turned on, then the next time it boots up it will sync with the server and get the most recent caller id data.

When a call comes in, a "bubble" will popup on the taskbar of each workstation that has the client software. You can also click on the task bar and display caller id history.

There is a file where you can enter phone numbers to "block". Blocked numbers will be answered by the modem, silently. The telemarketer will just have to talk to a modem tone. Block numbers support regular-expressions so you can block whole swaths of numbers.

I run it here in my house (pretty big network), it is flawless. The only thing I have not done is documentation. If anyone wants to try it, I will make the system available on my web page. No charge of course.

I only wrote it for my family, as I couldn't find anything out there that worked this way: client/server. So, I haven't documented it yet...

i have tried callclerk in the past which is client/server. but it is too slow (client pc's don't get notified until the 3rd ring or so). and i don't get names, just the number (i get the number again in place of the name - but i think that's a Vonage issue which i just haven't got around to calling up about to have fixed). anyway, something that actually works would be great Smile

Um... this is precisely how YAC (free and open source) works.

Looks like Yac is very well done.

However, I'll keep using mine for the following reasons:

My software uses multicast to simultaniously notify all clients on the network. Not a fixed number of listeners.

My software has regular expression rules to handle different types of callers. For example, I can block ALL calls from Nigeria with one command.

My client computers automatically sync with the server when they boot up, so any calls that came in while the client was shutdown will now show up in the call history.

My clients play customizable sounds for different callers, so users can hear who is calling if the screen is turned off.

A feature I am working on currently is to have the client adapt to current culture and display the popup in your native language. I have some non english speakers in my household.

But, briefly glancing over Yac's source code, it looks real good.

That sounds awesome. Have you considered integrating it with AT&T Natural Voices or Dragon Naturally Speaking or any of the other TTS engines? Here's an online demo of AT&T Natural Voices (but you can buy it as a desktop product). I used the demo site to generate 15 to 20 WAVs with the computer voice speaking the name of a caller (just my 15-20 most common callers), then used those WAV files in TalkingCallerID to have the caller's name announced throughout my voice. If someone outside of the 15-20 number calls me, TalkingCallerID just reads out the phone number ... in a much worse TTS than AT&T Natural Voices.

If only this broadcast the caller ID data over the network like YAC or other CID software, I would buy a copy--as would a number of my friends--so we can finally ditch our analog modems (the only reason we have them is to acquire the caller id info).

Any plans to do this in the future? I'd like to be able to run VONaLink ScreenPop (or a YAC client) on all the computers in my house to receive CID data without having to connect them all to the same hub.

edit: nevermind. i see ScreenPop supports external applications. I can use YACTextSend to send the CID data to computers elsewhere on the network (i.e., computers on a different ethernet segment than the one on which ScreenPop and the Vonage router live)
