hi
I installed Vonage today with linksys WRT54GP2, off course I changed the adapter because I bought it from Canada, I bought the right adapter.
now the problem that the line is so moody some time there is no noise or some and other times it is unbelievable.
I have one point in the house, and my connection is cable and the connection is from the wall jack to the motorola cable modem provided by optus my ISP provider and then to linksys. I can't connect the linksys directly as they use in Australia a thick wire like the one for cable TV.
thanks in advance.

You can't connect the Linksys directly to what?

Are you using house wiring for the telephone? Is there any difference in the setup at all from the times that you're having all the noise to the times you aren't? Are you using a cordless telephone? If so, what frequency is it?

OK, it's normal that the Linksys needs to be connected to the cable through a modem. It's a router and a Voip telephone adapter, but it needs a modem to function with the cable.

How about the rest of my questions?

hi
I'm using cordless telephone 1.8, and I'm using the normal home wiring.
about if it new noise, as I told you ever thing the house the device the cable subscription and Vonage subscription all are new.
by the way I tried to use another telephone 2.4, and change the place, but no use.
also the thing is really moody for example it has a little noise now but an hour ago it was too much.
I even change the voice quality from the Vonage site to the lowest 30k.... as this is their solution in the FAQ.

OK, it sounds as if you've eliminated the phone as the source of the problem. It would be best to stick with the 1.8; the 2.4 GHz can interfere with the wireless router and cause assorted mysteries.

During one of its moody, noisy periods, can you make the noise go away by plugging your phone directly into the Vonage box, eliminating the house wiring completely? If you haven't tried this, please do.

Also, please run the forum Voip speed test (on the drop down menu). Post the detailed results here. If you can run the test during a "moody" period and during a quiet period, that would be useful.

I assume your complete setup is wall cable -> modem -> Linksys -> computer and phone. Is this correct, or are there extras or variants? Is the computer wired or wireless?

Hi

"During one of its moody, noisy periods, can you make the noise go away by plugging your phone directly into the Vonage box, eliminating the house wiring completely? If you haven't tried this, please do." if I understood this right ... my telephone is always connected to the Vonage box.

Based on your average round trip time to the server, I'm guessing that the problem is with your internet service. Was this test run during a good period or a moody period? Try to get test data for both (keeping in mind that the system won't let you run the test too often). If you run out of test time for the day, you might want to try www.testyourvoip.com .

To eliminate your Vonage box as a source of trouble, it would be a good idea to also re-run the test with the Vonage box removed.
