I was having problems with choppy audio using a Netgear WTG624 router. I switched to a D-Link DIR-635 which has the Ubicom QOS "Stream Engine" and it works like a charm. I now have essentially perfect calls all of the time. While it works very well without setting up any device or application specific rules. I found that I got better results by giving my Vonage phone a #1 priority and relegating my bit torrent client to a #255 priority.

I have been a Vonage customer for 13 months now and I cannot stress enough that you will be much happier purchasing a separate router that supports QoS and place it directly facing the internet with you phones behind it. DO NOT use your Vonage router/phone adapter as your router, ONLY use it as a phone adapter and you will see much better performance!

For QoS I have tried both the Hawking HBB1 broadband "booster" and the D-Link DI-724U wireless router (individually, not together) and I cannot speak highly enough about the D-Link. If you are looking for a wireless router to use with Vonage the QoS is incredible. Since I switched to this router I no longer have any dropped calls or echoing issues.

Most dlink's have issues with Vonage without port forwarding involved. Visit http://portforward.com, click on port forwarding, choose your router from the list, choose Vonage from the next list, and follow the instructions.

For the 624 - (Which Vonage gets calls about every single day)

I used Vonage with my DI-624 for 6 months and never had one problem. No port forwarding, DMZ, or other configurations needed at all. Simply plugged my VTA into the router and it was smooth sailing from day one. I am curious to know why Vonage receives so many calls about the DI-624 and why the portforward website claims that it is difficult if at all possible to use Vonage with this router. Guess you can't always believe what you read until you try it for yourself.

I have used a DI-524 at two places. One with about 6mb down and 384K up without a problem. Another place that gets 1.5mb down and 587K up which constantly had problems, loosing my incoming voice. And which caused me to start this thread. Though the second place has more people sharing the bandwidth so that could be part of the problem I would think.

I replaced the DI-524 with the newer DIR-655 with QoS, at my problem location, and since have not had any issues with using the Dlink products. Simply configuring out of the box running the Wizard, no special port forwarding.

I'm not real impressed with portforward.com.

They have instructions for setting up port forwarding with Vonage for two different routers that I know from experience don't need it.

What works for one doesn't always work for others. It's not portforward.com you want to condemn, it's the technology. Different builds, chipsets, revisions.... it's much like when you goto the store and pick out 10 pairs of jeans that are all size 32, but they all fit differently.
