Sorry, I thought that MTA was a generic term for telephone adapter, I'm really talking about the RT31P2. Hey, we're learning everyday! Smile

No problem Sim. It's true! We are all learning.

I have an MTA (Motorola Terminal Adapter), and it works wonderfully. It does not have as many ethernet ports on the back (just one), but the sound is totally awesome on the Motorola. My friend just received his LinkSys box yesterday. I hooked it up for him, and it is definitely not as clear as my Motorola. He just lives 2 doors down from me and we have the exact same high speed provider. I took my MTA to his house and it was as clear as a bell. There was no hum. Picking up the phone on his line was a hum in the background. It was not that loud, but it was still noticeable. Unlike the Motorola which makes no noise at all.

I'm not sure why there was a switch to LinkSys seeing as there is this sound problem. That surely cannot be good for encouraging people to use Voip. Perhaps Cisco will either rectify the problem, or Vonage will switch back to Motorola.

Hiyas!

1. What I did was basically disable everything by unplugging it from the Linksys so All i had at the time was:

My Motorola Cable Modem (an sb5100) >> WAN port on my Linksys RT31P2 >> 1 computer hooked to LAN 1

2. I then went to http://192.168.15.1 and then to the Firmware update page, and flashed in the 1.27 Firmware manually.

3. After the Phone Adapter rebooted, I hooked up my 3-way splitter into Phone 1 (I have 2 DirecTV boxes and my primary phone) and got a dialtone after about 1 minute.

I won't go into hooking my wireless router back up and all that jazz...everything works dandy Smile

I imagine that this would work the same from the command line on *nix boxes. I use Mac OS X.


OS-X is based on Unix kernel. Just open a terminal window and do it right from that shell.

Thanks for the feedback!,

What is your web browser, your OS, and did you change the default password on the RT31P2? Is the ATA on its default setting?

Did the ATA ask you for some login during the upgrade?

I hope we can pinpoint this strange difference between our setup...

I posted this elsewhere, but maybe it belongs here because this is where I first posted the problem and was told it shouldn't be a firmware problem Smile ...

A Vonage tech tried to help me last night, to no avail, and finally just ordered me a new router ... but, after I left it unplugged all night, my phone service returned this morning.

It appears my firmware was upgraded to 1.27 (it was 1.26 when I went to bed).

The only problem now is that I am getting the message:

"The system has detected a conflict for IP Address 192.168.15.100 with system having a hardware address of (12 character number ... MAC address? Doesn't match the previous MAC address). Interface has been disabled."

What does this mean and how can I fix it?

Oh, and how did the firmware update with my Linksys router unplugged all night?

OK I got somethin good to say for once fellows....lol

It seems too in this new firmware upgrade they took out the "auto setting" for QOS in voice. Did anyone else notice this? Also default after firmware upgrade went to 512 which in case im just short of 500. Yes I have been a victim of total reboot/phone port reboot/sluggish surfin.

Nothing has helped this issue with UPnP enabled or not let alone anything in the settings. Well since this update I am leaving it at the 512 even though im just shy on the up and hence I have yet to reboot... Im holding the breath but really I think its helping.

YAY!

Also someone mentioned the person you called noticed a quieter line....ummm I can say the same. Big difference and after all the noise boo hooing chime in buddies and say its better. I know there are a few of ya still with issue but gee it fixed it here big time.

I used my WinXP Pro SP2 machine for this operation, and IE for accessing the Router's configuration pages. The only password I was asked to enter was upon calling the configuration initially.

The only settings I had altered in the various pages was:
1. changed the timezone to -6 GMT
2. cloned the MAC Address from my Ethernet card.

And that was it. After the upgrade, I changed my password and added an entry to the Applications and Gaming page. Everything works! Smile

Hope it helps

I did a last attempt: reset the RT31P2 with the reset button (30 s), unplug everything (phone cord, dongle on phone port 2, WAN port) except lan ethernet port. Login with IE with default password, try the firmware upgrade: same result after asking me 3 time to login: 401 error.

Try again and log with Firefox : seem to be stuck in loop asking me about 30 sec apart to login, finally hit cancel at the login prompt after many many login and got the 401 error....

Back to my usual setup, RT31P2 behind another router and I throw the towel, if somebody come back with an idea, let me know. For now I'll stay with the 1.24.xx firmware... Sad(

Sim, same damn thing happened to me.

You know, either Linksys is full of incompetent idiots, or Vonage is doing a beautiful job of ruining their reputation, because as of the moment if I have to buy a standalone router, it's either going to be netgear or a linksys running linux.

I'm really. Not. Happy.
