Hello all! UK user here. Posted this message earlier today in the UK-specific area but it's a little quiet in there so I thought i might get a response in here. It's the same system, after all Smile

http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic18375.html

I'm new to this forum and the Vonage service. I'm still in my first month. Loving it so far, with just one small disappointment.

When using a normal, standard phone-line, each person can always hear the other one speaking, even if they are also speaking themselves. If you see what I mean.

However, as I have been using Vonage, I have noticed that, when I am talking, I cannot hear if the other person tries to interrupt.

Is this a perculiarity of Voip in general, or a 'fault' (okay, a small glitch Smile) in the Vonage service?

Thoughts/comments appreciated.

Oh, for the record I'm on cable 2mb service and have the standard D-LInk Vonage adapter.

Thanks!

I think what you are referring to is the total silence on the line if there is a pause in the conversation, or if no one is speaking and there is no background noise. This is inherent to ALL Voip products, since no voice means no data. Your voice is packetized into a digital stream, and some control signals, so when there is no data (noise) to be passed, only the passive control signals remain. It would be disadvantageous to generate many packets with no data, since that would eat up bandwidth unneccesarily. Vonage may be able to tweak something for you at their end, but I think you'll always have that silence if there's nothing actively transmitting.

No, the behavior you describe is abnormal. The Vonage system and the underlying technology is full duplex. This is evidenced by the need for echo cancellation. Echo cancellation is necessary because the adapter is hearing audio it produced slightly after it produced it and, if not for echo cancellation, would propagate it again.

Other Vonage users have reported problems with seemingly half duplex behavior. Others have pointed to a high latency (delay between speaking and hearing) resulting in the 'feeling' of half duplex.

If I were in your shoes I would use a Voip test and post the results. I would also take a minute to confirm whether you are experiencing half duplex or if it just seems like it. If you are experiencing true half duplex (and you need to be certain what device is on the other end of the call), then I would replicate the tests using a Vonage to Vonage call before calling support.

Results: http://www.testyourvoip.com/details.html?id=NFKXIK Can someone interpret for me please! (I used London as I only usually make UK-UK calls. I don't know anyone anywhere else.)
Cable connection: http://home.ntl.com/websales/product.do?id=227 (2mb down/200kb up)
Router: http://www.netgear.co.uk/extra/h_wirelessrouter_wgr614.php
ATA: Standard Vonage D-Link

I'm using best call quality as anything else makes the service un-useable.

Anything other info needed?

No, but thanks anyway Smile

Okay. Looks like I might need to set up some Port Forwarding on my Router; Netgear WRG614.

Using this info from Vonage: http://www.vonage.co.uk/help.php?article=1098&category=44&nav=3 I have set up my Router (Netgear WRG614) as follows:

http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/5282/netgear2mf0.jpg

However, I can't seem to add the other two TFTP ports as I get a "name already in use" error when I try.

Have I done this right and what can I do about the other TFTP ports?

Notes:
1. I haven't added the standard HTTP on Port 80 'cos that's.. well.. standard!

2. In case you're wondering, the thing on 1712 is my S1 Tivo Very Happy

Thanks again.

I don't think the port forwarding settings will help. Those would typically be necessary if sound was not available in one direction at any time.

Just to be clear have you actually tested your line?

Quote:
To test performance, have two people speak simultaneously over a phone line using the unit, each reading different passages. Under the best conditions, each participant should be able to hear the person's words clearly without any cutoffs, especially at the beginning or end of sentences.


Having reviewed your test scores you need to solve the outbound packet discard problem first. At some point between your system and the test endpoint in London a router is being forced to drop 3.7% of your outbound packets. In most cases this occurs at your local router. A tool like ping plotter can help you diagnose the problem. Search the forums on information on how to use ping plotter, however because you are in the UK you will need to change the destination address to something more local.

You may benefit from a broadband accelerator like the Hawking HBB1 or the similar D-Link unit if there are other devices on your network that are competing for bandwidth on your outbound link.

Not under strict test conditions. However, while the called party can always hear me clearly, I cannot hear them whenever I am talking.

I'll take a look at ping plotter. However, there's certainly nothing on my setup that's hogging the bandwidth. I'm mainly surfing and email, with some web site updating, etc. I don't do p2p, for example, at all. I've been known to play Counter-Strike on occasion, but not recently Smile
