PostPosted: Tue Jan 11, 2005 9:07 am    Post subject: Vonage over ADSL - do I need to buy a router? Reply with quote Back to top

Hi All -

I'm located in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and am attempting to connect Vonage over my 512/128 kbps ADSL line. The first problem is that the ADSL modem connects to my computer via USB, so I need to buy a replacement modem that connects via Ethernet.

But once I've done that, will I need to do anything else? Or at that point will I simply be able to plug in the Vonage phone adapter as usual?

I've heard that using Vonage with ADSL requires a router as well? Is this true?

Note: My ADSL requires that I log in everytime I boot my computer; it does not stay automatically connected.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

there should be an adapter you can buy if you want to skip buying the new modem. Vonage sends the linksys RT31P2 if you order from them, which is a router, so you should be covered there. You'll want to be sure to set your call quality to the lowest setting in the Vonage features page, because with a low upload speed like that, coupled with (I assume) international calling, you may have some issues. even without intl calling I wouldn't put the quality setting above the middle.
Not sure how your dsl works, but you'll probably need to set the RT31P2 to PPPoE which allows you to specify a username, password, etc.

thanks for the quick reply.

Not sure I understand why I won't need to buy the new modem. You're saying there is a USB-to-Ethernet adapter, and that will allow me to take the USB cord from the modem and plug it into the Vonage box?

this is where I saw the information (another Voip company):

http://sunrocket.com/get_help/troubleshooting.html#usbport

My high speed Internet connection uses a USB port, not an Ethernet port.
The gizmo currently only supports an Ethernet connection. You will need to switch your high-speed Internet connection from USB to Ethernet in order to use SunRocket Service.
If your computer does not have an Ethernet card, you can purchase a USB to Ethernet Converter to connect your computer to the gizmo, and ultimately the Internet.

Where do you change this setting and how? I have been on the Linksys site where you can change from "Obtain IP automatically" and some other options, but where do you change the settings for audio quality?

I wouldn't get your hopes up on finding such an adapter. You can get a USB adapter to hook your computer into ethernet, but I've never heard of an adapter that lets you hook a USB modem into ethernet.

It sounds like you'll need a new modem. It was a pretty stupid design to not have the Ethernet port in the first place.
