PostPosted: Mon Dec 25, 2006 7:51 am    Post subject: Static, bad lan ports, i finally tossed my RTP300 Reply with quote Back to top

At first it was the static. Various changes in my configuration, upstream from my wireless router, downstream, QoS (even though my connection is very fast and I have very little PC traffic), multiple calls into Vonage... I did notice that one of the LAN ports on the RTP300 was acting funny, dropping the connection and reconnecting it (the familiar "Cable unplugged") - though I was not sure at first whether it was the RTP300, the cable or the PC card. Then, because I was running out of ports on my other router, I had no choice but to connect one pc to this RTP300. So I had to do some systematic trouble shooting to get around these dropped connections. It turned out that all of the ports on the RTP300 were bad! So, that on top of the static (a little like making a call from under the shower without giving you this clean feeling at the end) did it for me. I went to the store to get a D-Link VTA, devised a another ruse to connect that last PC and I now have crystal calls, with a clean feeling at the end Wink

I read a number of postings about static on RTP300s. Mine seemed to appear some firmware upgrade ago, though I am not totally sure. One thing is certain, these things do go bad after a while and the static may be one of the symptoms (beyond the LAN ports that are obvious).

Happy holidays!

Which firmware version was the RTP300? I'm still running an ancient version on my RTP300 and have had good luck with it. I refuse to let them push newer firmware updates to it. Too risky.

Unfortunately, with all the LAN ports dead, I can't get into the beast (and I did not open the WAN port for remote mgt).

Level 2 did say that I was back-leveled, how far back, however, I'll never know.

You're not the only one who has had bad static on an RTP300. Mine is terrible, and Vonage's final solution (after days of tech support calls and frustration)? They're sending me a replacement RTP300. A refurb one!
