Choppy / One-way / Dropped Audio
First couple of months fine at the 3mg download, 256kps upload. Noticed choppy calls but no dropped audio or one way. After 3 1/2 months change to the 5mg download, 512kps upload and had no problems for the first couple of weeks except the choppy part. Then have noticed the one way and dropped audio issue and still choppy. At that time I was still using the old cable modem. Came out to Vonage forum and had seen where people had change their cable modems. Changed mine out to the Motorola sb5120 and all was fine for about a week and then it started to happen again with the dropped audio and one way. Havent seen any choppy part.

I noticed a couple of things.

first, your test results are fine.
second, why did you disable qos on your WRT54gs?

I would enable it and see if that changes anything.

If this doesn't change anything, then consider disabling the firewall on your WRT54gs

Both of these changes might help get your choppy and one way audio issues solved. I do not see any issues with your ISP from your test results which leads me to believe that it's your configuration. It sounds like you have a lot of internet traffic on your network and Qos would be essential. The firewall might think that the repeated data to your vtech phones might be an attack etc.

are you experiencing intermittent internet issues?i suspect sb5120.we discussed it here quite few days before.the other thing is your router seems to be possesing spi firewall.so try setting call forwarding/dmz and set qos to favour Vonage device.

Change the qos to enable and things do seem to be ok. Have not noticed any dropped or one way. will see how things are on the choppy this thursday and friday when I work from home.

I am not sure but I think the qos setting is disabled as a default when I set up the linksys. Cant really remember since have had it for amost 2 years.

Latest firmware for this Linksys is what I have and as of today at linksys it is this.

WRT54GS v2- Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster
Firmware Date: 4/25/2006
Firmware Release Version: 4.71.1
Firmware File Size: 2.95 MB

thanks for the help

that's great! I don't understand why linksys would make the default disabled qos. who knows. i'm glad that it is helping so far. let us know if it is still giving you a headache.

Forgot to answer the part about intermittent internet connections. No I was not seeing any problems with the internet connection part at all over the whole time with Vonage. Just the choppy, audio, dropped call part.
