PostPosted: Thu May 07, 2009 8:14 pm    Post subject: Best Setup for Vonage V-Portal Reply with quote Back to top

Based on some experimentation, I have concluded that under certain circumstances the V-Portal (VP) should be installed behind a router, particularly when the router is QOS capable.

I currently have Comcast with d/l speeds of ~30 MB/sec and upload speeds of ~3 MB/s. Yet, even with strong bandwidth, low jitter and minimal packet loss, people I called complained of occasional line drops. I am also confident that there is not an issue with my Motorola 5120 cable modem.

Monitoring my d/l and u/l speeds during and after a phone conversation, it became apparent that the VP was using an excessive amount of bandwidth during a phone call- with as noted above mixed results.

Further, I recently I upgraded to an inexpensive D-Link DIR 638/QOS router, which significantly boosted wired performance throughout my network, including a significant improvement to web page load times.

However, due to continuing voice quality issues and the V-Portal's excessive bandwidth use (at least with the default QOS settings), I decided to move the V-Portal behind the DIR 628 and set the later to automatic classification, rather than manually assigning QOS priority. By doing see call quality significantly increased.

Placing the VP behind the DIR 628 involved enabling remote configuration management and setting a static IP address on the VP. VP Fixed IP address settings for use with the DIR 628 were as follows:

Static IP: 192.168.0.XXX
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
DNS (Primary and secondary) as per the rotuer device information screen.

While my results are purely anecdotal, my sense is that the VP unit is not always the best device to put in front of a router/network and that placing it behind the router may resolve some issues. Put simply- I believe the D-Link unit is a better router and I have more confidence that it will properly assign bandwidth and provide the best QOS performance- at least with my network and hardware configuration.

Another helpful tip if the V-Portal is behind the router is to disable the Application Level Gateway SIP configuration. This applies to the DIR 628 router I amusing.

PostPosted: Mon May 18, 2009 6:05 pm    Post subject: Final Configuration Reply with quote Back to top

After all of the above, I had to revert back to an earlier configuration and make the following changes:

(1) Vonage change dthe sampling period from .20 ms to .10 ms (see: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r21333083-Vonage-****).
(2) Replace the Motorola SB5120 with the SB5101 due to what Vonage described as possible latency issues
(3) Place the V-Portal in front of the router. This does have the benefit, that by not using the DIR 628's QOS, I can full throttle the upload speed for other applications (when not on a phone call). See:
http://vonage.nmhoy.net/qos.html.

All and all, this is not a very user friendly process. (1) above required calling Vonage support, since they can only change the sampling period from their end. The Motorola replacement may not have been completely necessary. Placing the V-Portal in front of the DIR 628 was not my preference, since I did not want issues with the V-Portal to "crash" my network.
