I've read the Motorola is the best/most reliable but it's also costly. I've looked at the approved router list and can't find many even available or if so, not very good ratings. What to do? This is irritating because I read at one time Vonage was offering the Motorola VT2542 at no charge but I didn't know about this.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Most people around here would probably recommend that you get a good non-Vonage router with good QoS capability, and then get a simple Vonage adapter to use with it. The PAP2 or Dlink VTA would be good for the latter. I've read a lot of recommendations in here for the Linksys WRT54GL for the router.

Excellent advice, keeping the Voip adapter and router separate. My router is a WRT54GS with a Dlink VTA. I have great audio quality and reliability.

Agreed. I use a WRT54GL with Tomato firmware loaded on it for my router and use a simple PAP2 behind it for Voip only. Things work well, both wireless in general and QoS.

I have a Motorola Vonage router now and was wondering If I bought a wireless router and exchanged it with the Motorola would it automatically connect to my Vonage account or would I have to call Vonage and reactivate it?

You would need to either call Vonage to activate it or activate it on their website.

There is a link on the main Vonage page titled "Bought it at a store, Activate your device now" that you can use.

But, you could also buy a non-Vonage wireless router and use both it and the Motorola Vonage unit. Use the Motorola as just a Vonage adapter.

Add one more recommendation for the Linksys WRT54GL router (and aftermarket firmware, such as Tomato) and using Vonage's adapters solely as phone devices. Do you really want some other company randomly pushing out firmware to your router?

Vonage's idea of shipping all-in-one devices wasn't bad, but they ran into trouble when the saddled a Voip adapter onto a usually lower-level router. Add any heavy traffic demands to it and many of them choke.

Let me guess. If I use the Linksys router you use I have to get the Vonage adapter as well? Right now I'm connected straight trough the Linksys RT31P2 router that came with Vonage activation.
