Hi there DarKev;

I have a Linksys WRT54G router and upgraded the firmware to the lastest. It supports QoS.
I also use the Linksys PAP2 Vonage Adapter.

[quote=darkev]London Drugs I believe is a western drug store. I do not believe it is available in central Canada or Eastern. It is not available in the Ottawa region of Ontario, or in Montreal Quebec, and when I lived in Nova Scotia it was not available there. [/quote]


they have them down here in London ON.. Smile actually I was surprised to see that they had them elsewhere, i thought it was a London only store.. lol.. see what you learn online Wink

Our main drugstores in Ottawa/Gatineau are Shopper's Drug Mart, Pharma Plus, and Jean Coutu. None of them carry the Vonage equipment.

Nice new fonts Dan!

The WRT54G is a good choice, but an even better choice would the be the WRT54GS. The GS model has 16MB of Flash Memory and 32MB of RAM (the extra memory is useful for custom firmware). Also custom firmware such as sveasoft, hyperwrt, and openwrt add a lot of useful features.

A friend of mine called me tonight from his Bell Canada phone line. He has been chatting with me (a lot) lately about switching from Bell Canada to a Voip phone system because he has had so many problems with Bell, and also wanted to reduce the cost of his phone service. After looking at Vonage Canada and Primus Canada, he decided to go with Primus Canada because they are $11.55 per month (incl. taxes) cheaper for the unlimited package. That is a savings of $138.60 per year! He took the Primus $29.95 deal, instead of Vonage's $39.99, which basically gives him the same thing - unlimited US/Canada calling, and boot load of features.

However, already he has found a technical problem, and it is related to my Vonage telephone number for whatever reason. We are not sure at this time if the problem is originating with Vonage or with Primus. He thought I must have cancelled my Vonage service because he has not been able to call me since he got his Primus Talkbroadband. When he dials my Vonage number, a recording comes on stating "We're sorry, your call cannot be completed as dialled. Please check the number and dial again!"

He can call any other number here locally, including my cell phone number, but he cannot dial my Vonage line via Primus. I mentioned to him that I have a Vonage Virtual Number in Halifax. I gave him that number and asked him to try it. Low and behold - it worked. He was able to ring my phone when dialling my Vonage Canada Halifax number. He tried my Vonage Ottawa number and once again received the recording stating that my number was not in service. I believe this is likely a problem with Primus following an incorrect path to my Ottawa number. Three of my friends here in the Ottawa region are with Vonage. I asked him to call them as a test to see if maybe all Ottawa Vonage numbers were affected, and he was able to get through to both of them. It is strictly with my phone number that he is blocked. How odd! He called Primus and they said they would create a service ticket and look into it. I will let you know if there are any updates to this. My friend can still contact me through his Bell line, but once his number is fully ported to Primus he will no longer have his Bell line.

He was able to setup his D-Link ATA to automatically route my phone number through his Bell line whenever anyone tries dialling me from his Primus line. The D-Link ATA has some special feature called ACR - Automatic Call Redirection. You can plug another live telephone line into the back of the ATA. You can then go into the D-Link settings and configure it to use the alternate line when dialling certain numbers. That is pretty cool! The other thing that impressed me was that no matter if a call comes in to his new Primus line or his old Bell line, all of his phones ring. The D-Link ATA looks after routing the calls to the same telephones no matter where the call comes from. He routed 911 through to his Bell line because he felt it was a better 911 system than Primus'. It is cool that you can program the ATA to use an alternate phone system to complete "specific" calls.

Does anyone know if the LinkSys ATA that Vonage uses does this? I know that my Motorola box is not capable of this setup.

that is very cool about his ATA.. makes it very easy to integrate a landline in with your VoIP..
thats pretty wierd he can't callyou, but can call other Ottawa Vonage #'s.. atleast he can call your NS number tho, and if he has unlimited LD, then it's all good Smile

Yes, he can still call me on that. He has unlimited so it is no problem for now. I actually CALL FORWARD my cell phone to my Vonage line, so I asked him to just call my cell phone number, and that works. Bell customers can call me on my Vonage line, but Primus Talkbroadband customers cannot call me.

It is strange! Very strange.

Primus still does not have this fixed. My friend called them last night for a status and there was no status update. They mentioned to him that it is probably a problem with Vonage. My friend argued that it could not possibly be since he can get through to my Vonage number from every other phone in the city. He also told them that he can call my Vonage number in Halifax. Plus he can call other Vonage customers in this area. He just cannot call my Ottawa number.

We'll see how it goes.

Hi everyone. I am here trying to decide which of Vonage or Primus I should choose as my telecom carrier. As of now, I am headed in the Primus direction because they have more advantages then Vonage. If anyone here can tell me if I've missed something (either a pro for Vonage or a con for primus..ie something to persuade me to choose Vonage over its main competitor primus) then please inform me of what you know that hasn't already been mentioned below. Thanks.

Primus Talkbroadband - Pros
1) Cheaper Rates ..$15.95 (Basic unlimited local calling) ..$19.95 (Basic unlimited local plus 8 features).. $29.95 (Unlimited North America plus 8 features)
2) $4.00 Virtual Numbers
3) No Installation fee or Network Charges
4) Referral Program ($30 credit towards your bill and $15 credit towards your referrals bill)
5) Ongoing Airmiles
6) Optional Long Distance Plans (300 Canada/US for $2.95... 1000 Canada/US for $10)

Primus Talkbroadband - Cons
1) Phone Numbers for selected Canadian cities only (Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Hamilton, Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver, Halifax, Kitchener-Waterloo, London, Mississauga, Quebec City, St. Catharines, Victoria, and Winnipeg)
2) Only 2 Additional Virtual Numbers Allowed

Vonage - Pros
1) Phones Numbers for almost any area code in North America/Mexico/UK
2) Vonage US customers get 1 month free (Is this available for Canada, I am not sure)
3) SoftPhone Option
4) I believe they have better International Long Distance Rates

Vonage - Cons
1) Installation Fee
2) More Expensive Rates (Plans)
