OK so I haven't had Vonage for very long, got it in the begining of January. It has given me troubles since the begining, very choppy calls where people can't understand me, or I can't understand them and people will try calling and it will go straight to voicemail so I find myself resetting the router almost every day. I've never looked into it heavily until now because I'm not very techy and last time I screwed it up so I couldn't make any calls. It is getting to the point where I need important phone calls and I can't have them, and this is my only phone line. Help please! Thanks for the help, I tried calling Vonage but they are no use since they always mess it up then can't call me back (don't they advertise that this should be your home phone?, yet they sound so suprised when I say this is my only phone line)

Those two numbers scare me, for starters.

Is this test done with your computer hooked directly to your modem/access point? If not, try that, just to make sure your connection really is that bad (no offense).

Another thing to check - in the upper right corner of the login screen for your WRTP54G is the firmware version. It'll probably be 1.00.something or 5.01.04. If it is less than 1.00.62, and especially if it's down around 1.00.18 or so, turn off the wireless access point on it and let it run for a few hours. That should allow it to upgrade to a more recent firmware. Probably not related to your issue, but a long-term known problem with the WRTP54G units (I have one myself).

Those results are from my computer directly hooked up to the modem, not through the router. Are they better?
I'll try what you said and I"ll let you know, I don't even know if I'll be able to because I had difficulties from the begining (I can't get in to put a password on my router, the "admin" generic password won't work.. so I think I'm going to have to uninstall it and do it again or something)

That's approaching satellite broadband results. Which is not good!

If your results don't improve dramatically when hardwired via ethernet to the router, you should try running the test with your laptop directly connected to your cable modem. Could be a flaky adapter/router or if you still get the same terrible results directly connected to the modem, it's an isp issue that RR needs to fix for you.

Sorry, you must have posted while I was writing a reply. Most of the results look better except the average round trip time to server. That number is still horrible which would indicate a lot of latency and choppy and broken calls. You are in the states and that number should at least be below 100ms. Can you run a ping -t www.yahoo.com test from a command prompt? If you are getting similar times of around 400ms, that is an isp issue that RR needs to fix. Ideally you should see times around 50-60ms while running that ping test.

I had a couple of issues whenI first set up Vonage. A number of calls to technical support and they would keep changing settings on the Vonage device/router.

Things only got worse, so I called again, the Vonage tech said I don't know what they did, and told me to do a hard reset on the adapter, putting it back to factory defaults. That and lowering the Bandwidth saver to it's lowest, as well as putting the Vonage device in front of my older router, fixed it. Some complain the lower settings on the bandwidth saver degrades the voice quality, I do not have any problem with voice quality, still better than my POTS line and cell phone..
