I am wondering who takes their Vonage adaptor on the road?

Most hotels now offer wireless internet, in North America anways.

You need a wired connection in the hotel room for this to work.

Vonage says this on their website;

"Take It On the Road

Your Phone Adapter makes a great travel companion. You can use it anywhere in the world where you have a high-speed Internet connection. Take it anywhere overseas and you won't pay international dialing rates when you call back home. The same is true when you travel to other area codes in Canada for both business and residential Vonage accounts. "

I travel overseas all the time and I have never had a wired connection in my room (well that's a lie there are some, but it cost like $25 Euros a day!) Try to find a hotel with a wireless connection that is free is also near impossible.

I loan out my modem to an employee who travels a lot. He keeps cable internet by habit, and it is convenient for cheap calls and is by nature portable. I prefer softphone, anyway. Free wifi is great for softphone; the problem being suitable software for Vonage on my axim X50v. (I currently use Skype on the handheld--- looking for softphone software for Vonage with no luck.)

The modem is fine if you can get a cable connection. For PC use, a wifi connect is more likely, and softphone is a simpler way to go.

Using a soft phone cost money and you still need a wireless connection for it to work. I know most North American hotels have this for free, but travel to Europe and it cost money.

What did you mean by "He keeps cable internet by habit, and it is convenient for cheap calls and is by nature portable."

This has worked for me with hotel wireless (as long as the quality of the internet connection is adequate).

Use you laptop as your wireless access using the built in or PCMCIA plug in wireless 802.11x as needed for the particular access point. I have a trivalent (compatable with 802.11 A, B, and G) card, so I don’t have to worry what the access point uses.

Log on with your laptop and use the temporary access code you’re given (if applicable).

Then, plug your phone adapter into the Ethernet port of your laptop. Depending on your equipment, you may (or may not) need a crossover (aka null-modem) patch cable.

You have to go into your Windows settings and allow the laptop to bridge the wireless port to the Ethernet port. It will treat them as two different networks with the laptop bridging the two. This can be done in advance so you don’t have to be fooling with laptop configuration when you want to call.

This is well documented in the following threads:

http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic12673.html
http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic4034.html


p.s., I know people using Vonage from Ecuador, England, Japan, and Germany without difficulty. Just have a good stepdown transformer for the power to the phone adapter. Vonage should offer dual voltage on its phone adapters.

I travel with a WiFi phone (Unlocked/non-Vonage branded F1000) and a Vonage soft phone account. I also have a Netgear WGR101 travel router for places that have wired internet but no wireless (this is also useful as I can connect the router to the hotel's wired internet, then connect my PC to the router and handle any authentication. At that point, the WGR101 is registered to the hotel so any device connecting to it - including the F1000 is good to go - plus I don't need to sit by the desk with a short ethernet cable on my PC.

I am glad I asked this question. Now I know how to use the phone adapter in the event both my wife and I go on a trip together. No sense in me taking the Vonage adapter with me without the wife, otherwise she will be without a phone.

I travel to Europe at least once a month, last Summer I spent a lot of time in the UK, but this Feb and March it will be in Germany and there is no free Vonage service there.

If I'm travelling and my wife isn't and I only need to talk to her, I leave the Vonage TA at home so she can use it as usual and we talk on Skype.

Won't help if you have to talk to non-Skype users (unless you use Skype-in or -out), but may work for some people.
