Wow, this forum is a terrific place to get info on Vonage. I'm about 98% convinced. The fact that I can try it out without switching entirely is very appealing.

I've been doing a little bit of reading, and am under the impression that the Motorola VT-1005 (or the latest model number from Motorola) is considered the best piece of equipment to use.

My question is, can I obtain the Motorola phone adapter from Vonage?

Also, am I able to connect more than one phone (not phone line) to the adapter? I have several located throughout my home.

Thanks much for any advice!

Consider me a soon to be Vonage customer!

the motorola's are harder to find than the lnksys models. you can't get them from Vonage. radioshack is the best (only?) place to find them.
Vonage sends the linksys RT31P2.
as far as wiring, are you in a house or apt/condo? you can definitely do it in a house, but probably not in a multifamily dwelling.
see these links on how to do it:

Thanks reebok, that's what I was a bit afraid of (availability of the Motorolas). Also, thanks much for the links. I'm in a single family home, so I'm assuming I'll be able to make this work.

Appreciate the quick reply!

Cheers!

1. You can put an RJ11 phone cable splitter in the phone adapter just like you can in any wall jack. That would give you two lines.

2. You can use a wireless phone with multiple handsets. (I have one with five extra handsets and it works great.) Only the base unit is plugged into the phone adapter.

3. If you are giving up your landline service, you can make a very simple connection to your house wiring (disconnecting the box from the outside of the house), plug a cable from the phone adapter to a wall jack, and use your regular wall jacks for extensions. The limit here is whether the adapter can power the phones. There is usually a limit of about 5 fairly modern phones before you exceed what is called the REN limit. However, some old phones are power hogs and may not work well under this arrangement. (On request, Vonage can turn up the power on your adapter somewhat.)

So you have several choices.

Good luck.

I got a PAP2 adapter from Circuit City and had nothing but trouble with it. Three units later I talked to the Vonage Tech and I asked her what adapter was the best one out there and she said the Motorola VT 1000 series. I called 5 Radio Shacks and found one that had one demo left. I told them to hold it for me and drove as fast as possible to get it. The next day I tried to get one for a friend and was told by Radio Shack that they got a memo to return all Motorloa modems. As far as I can see the Motorola is no longer availible. The motorola adapter I got Worked great. No Hiss hum or interference from any other "boxes" around my system. I also noticed that the FAX worked perfectly. I think Vonage found this unit to be too good and could not then charge the $9.00 for a fax line. I was fortunate enough to get one of the last Motorola units out there.
Vonage should look at the new Motorola units that just came out and drop the problematic Linksys adapters if they want to have HAPPY customers. It seems that the cheaper units are VERY troublesome and causing alot of un needed calls for tech support. My pap2 was a piece of crap and the other Linksys adapters seem to have a lot of problems. There was one Motorola availible on Ebay last week that went unsold. Price--$29.00.
I hope Vonage realizes that cheap is not always the way to go. Just my 2 cents.

There are always options.

I use the wireless phone jacks, they work well. also use all wireless network, so a wireless access point allows me to place my Vonage box anywhere I see fit and the wireless phone jacks further to extend this, as well as cordless phones.
However, my fair warnings to TOO much wireless in one house <G>
I choose 900 MHz phones, one reason is to avoid over crowding of the 2.,4 GHz range.

Vonage has faired out well through all of this. 5 computers on a wireless Roadrunner connection, a mail server, 4 websites, 2 Voip lines from 2 seperate providers and all works well, well balanced!
Vonage is the best...but can't seem to offer my area code though there are well over 1.5 million people in our area code!
