PostPosted: Wed Jan 24, 2007 6:26 pm    Post subject: Configuration question with router Reply with quote Back to top

I just recieved and installed my Vonage hardware. Following the setup instructions everything works fine but I have a question...

Currently, my configuration looks like:

Cable Modem > to > Wireless Router > to > Vonage Adapter

I'm concerned though, that excessive traffic over the router will degrade my phone quality. Should I change the configuration to:

Cable Modem > to > Vonage Adapter > to > Wireless Router


Or does it matter?

If it's a good wireless router with good QoS capability, then you should go into it and set it to favor the Vonage box. In that case, leave things as they are. If the router does not have good QoS capability, then the change you have in mind is recommended.

What's QoS? I have an old D-Link DI-524 router and I didn't see anything on the DLink site about it.

QoS is quality of service. Many routers have the ability to enhance the QoS of one network connection at the expense of others by increasing its priority. If the D-link doesn't support this, then I would stick with what you have for awhile and see if the phone service suffers when you're using the computer. If it does, then change the configuration.

You don't have QOS in that wireless router. I should know since I have one too. Take a look at my signature and you'll see that I have it setup like your configuration #2. That's the better choice.

OK.... need some help here. My Vonage device has a BLUE and YELLOW ethernet port. Which should be IN (that is, from my cable modem) and which should be OUT (that is, to my wireless router)?

Make sure the ethernet cable from the modem goes to the "Internet" ethernet port on your Vonage device. Then take the other ethernet cable and connect it to ethernet port 1 and then connect the other end to any available port in your wireless router.

Then configure according to the instructions on my post here:

On the two Vonage devices that I've had, the blue is the internet port (to modem) and the yellow is the local LAN port.

OK. I think everything is working now. Except, on my Vonage adapter (Motorola), the Ethernet light is orange. Should it be green?

Well, on my VT2442 the ethernet light is green, but I wouldn't worry about it as long as things are working.
