You'll see I've made these posts:
http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/remark,11853264
http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/remark,11648806~mode=flat~days=9999~start=20

Here's the contents of that 2nd post:
======================
OK, here's my promised list of serial #s I've tried, in hopes of somebody at Linksys/Vonage/broadbandreports spotting a trend of some sort. I'm honestly not into Linksys/Vonage loosing $ with all these returns. I did all these swaps at the advice of both companies tech support, and am hoping to help out by sharing this info.

I should add that I tried different models of corded phones plugged directly into WRT54GP2 Line 1 or Line 2. Also note that this isn't a subtle hiss, it's either there or it's not, obvious to anybody. I'd say that the noisy WRT54GP2s are 5x noisier than the quiet ones, about 10 seconds after powering up (before even activated by Vonage).

Linksys WRT54GP2

Serial# Store (Hartford area of CT, bought between Nov 19-21st '04)
BACKGROUND HISS:
CGZ00D905754 Best Buy, tested with Vonage, returned
CGZ00D905755 Best Buy, tested with Vonage, returned
CGZ00DA00044 Best Buy, tested with Vonage
CGZ00DA13211 CompUSA, tested with just phone, returned
CGZ00DA12830 CompUSA, working (with hiss, brother's house)

NO BACKGROUND HISS:
CGZ00DA01630 Best Buy, working (my house)
======================


Any ideas anybody? I still need to get a working WRT54GP2 to my brother's house, thanks!

Good news, workaround (hooking up a phone to unused port 2 and leaving it off hook) documented here:
http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/remark,11853264

I should make it clear that I like this router more than any other Vonage adapter, QOS works out of the box with no configuration and I'm getting excellent quality of voice calls. Now with less background hiss due to workaround, even happier.

Now for proper solution from Linksys/Vonage, still working on that, will inform....

That was the same work around for the Linksys RT31P2 Device and it seems to work fine I guess until you need the second port for a second tel line. I thought Linksys would have put a little more engineering into their product before sending out thousands of noisy units. Of course this subject has been beaten to death in other forums as well.
