hi - we are thinking of changing over to Vonage and i would like to know a few things before that Smile
right now we have verizon phone service and verizon fios internet service with a wireless router MI424MR from verizon. i would like to get the motorola VT2542 from Vonage. does this one replace the verizon router or will it be an addition? does anybody had/have this configuration and does it work? i have the router in the first floor in a network/antenna/phone junction box and it works fine with the laptops on the first and second floor.
thanks
fritz

First, check with Verizon and make sure you can cancel their phone service (if that is your intent) and still get internet service through them. I was not able to do this with my former phone company (Qwest), so they lost not one but two sources of revenue when I cancelled both my phone service and my DSL service.

In general, you still need a modem (DSL or Cable) for your internet service in addition to a new Voip modem for Vonage.

There is always a configuration to suit your needs. Could you provide some details on which devices (computers wired/wireless, printers, faxes, etc.) you'd like to hook up, which require internet, which require home networking (e.g., computer 1 must talk to computer 2, both need to talk to the printer).

thanks for your answer begotus.
i asked verizon already, they said it is no problem for me to just have internet from them.
all we have is the two wireless laptops (printer runs from one of them through a cable).

You have 2 options.

1) Keep your current setup. Add a basic Vonage Voip modem (disable Wireless if it's included). Plug the Voip modem into your Internet modem. This configuration DOES NOT meet the Vonage quality of service requirement, but many users (including myself) use this with no issues. It is the cheaper option, not requiring the VT2542.

2) Disable the Wireless on your Internet modem. Activate the VT2542 Wireless and use it for your laptop LAN. Plug the Voip modem into your Internet modem. This configuration DOES meet the Vonage quality of service requirement (the VT2542 will prioritze the voice traffic). It is the more expensive option, requiring the VT2542.

VT2442 will work. It's what I have. You won't need to use the router on the VT2442. It should work out of the box for you.

When I signed up (1 month ago), they stuck me with a refurb unit. There used to be a free non-router Voip modem, but it looks like the VT2442 is their base unit at present.

You will have the flexibility to expand your network with your Internet router if you wish (an ethernet jack is faster - 100mbps - than wireless G - 54mbps).
