PostPosted: Mon Feb 04, 2008 11:24 am    Post subject: Best Phone Adapter? Reply with quote Back to top

What is the best phone adapter for Vonage service? I have the WRTP54G and had nothing but problems. I would prefer to have a seperate device just for Vonage and use a seperate device for wireless. Any suggestions? Will a vt1005 be acceptable? I'm looking for a rock solid setup. What is the most reliable Vonage adapter out there?

Thanks!

I have a WRTP54G and love it, but only because I use it only as a Vonage adapter, not as a router. I have a real router to handle actual traffic, including my Voip traffic. The WRTP54G is just a slightly oversized PAP2 to me. Smile

That said, the answer to the question "Which Vonage adapter is best?" is probably that they're all fine when used just as adapters. People needing wireless or significant routing capability need to get a good router to serve those needs.

I have the D-Link VTA. It's over a year old and still going! LOL It's compact and quit being tempermental a while back. You know, where you need to power it down and all that. Not sure if they updated the firmware on the sly or what, but it is fine these days.

I would listen to the other posts and not try to go the cheap route by combining your Voip device and a switch/router. You can get a Linksys cable/dsl router with switch capabilities that seems to be reliable. At least it worked for me when I tried it with my FIOS Actiontec gateway and with no loss of call quality that I could detect.

I agree with the D-Link VTA being VERY good. I, similarly, tend to agree that the separation of the router and the Voip device is, probably, best.

I also have the UTStarcom F1000 which has performed flawlessly. Now if Vonage will start selling a WiFi phone again it will be great.

Sad I like the simplicity when it was just the modem & WRTP54G. While simple and easy for the network-challenged. The frequent resets drove me crazy. Now it is a single device for every function (router, switch, access point & TA). While trouble free for now, the harness at the back is a spaghetti of wires and cables. I wish there was a reliable multi-function unit alternative to the WRTP54G
