Hi guys, we're about to live full time in a Motorhome and want internet access plus telephone. Would it work to have a Sprint wireless card for our laptop or PC and then Vonage for the phone? I've been reading about the issues with Vonage, so I'll be watching that closely. I understand it wouldn't be available where there's no coverage but it seems like the best bet. Just curious if it will work.

With a wireless EVDO card like that keep in mind that Vonage will most likely not be supporting this setup from what I have seen. Also, with a card like that latency(internet delay) is a fairly large issue as is lack of adequate bandwidth. If you already have the card I would run the forum Voip speed test and post the results here so we can take a look and see if you are getting sufficient stats to have a good quality Vonage setup. I would even go so far as to point you toward some of the Vonage with satellite threads across the forum, as this is the closest comparison to an EVDO card that is talked about in detail on the forums.

Hi guys I ran the speed test and here are the results:

Download 930,144 bps
Upload 151,320 bps
QOS 83%
RTT 258 ms
MaxPause 156 ms

Now our biggest problem is how to connect since it's a USB aircard ... dunno, we're perplexed lol.

Card is Sierra Wireless Aircard 595U

Thanks again, Penny

Those speeds look ok to support one single call, might have problems with the upload on call waiting or 3-way calls(each call uses 90kbps, second call doubles to 180kbps and so on). The max pause and especially round trip time are relatively high. This might cause some audio issues for you, I would need to see the full results though that include jitter and MOS scores. Re-run the test if you would and make sure you get the full results which are under the advanced tab.

As for the connection, this is why a V-Phone was recommended. It is a software based phone. The software comes installed on a USB drive, you plug it into your computer and it loads up and you see a dialpad on your computer screen. It comes with basically a standard cellphone headset with mic. This would not require any advanced config to hook it up, it would be working right out of the box.

Now, if you really want a standard phone adapter you can do that too, however this solution will be more complex and prone to failure. In windows there is an option called Internet Connection Sharing(ICS). This allows you to share an active connection from one network interface on your computer to another. So, theoretically you could enable that on your EVDO card, have it shared to your wired ethernet port of the computer and plug a standard Vonage adapter in there. This will definitely take some tweaking to get it set up correctly though.

Thanks it does look like a Vphone would be our best bet. I reran the test to get you the full results, of course it will change as we move around but we're prepared to deal with no service occasionally.

Picked up the Vphone yesterday, and it works okay. Best part was that Bestbuy had some kind of $40 instant savings so it was free Smile

what do you mean by wireless? you mean wireless home internet (it depends on a wireless router), satellite (dish or antenna) internet or 3g (cell phone)?
because the only option I could think about is satellite internet, and Vonage doesnt really advises customers to use satellital internet, since it has too much latency, it gets cut off very often and the bandwidth is generally very low.
