OK...well, let's start from scratch. If you mean "outside" the router to be in front of the router, you don't need any port forwarding (except for the previously mentioned unused UDP ports that are a security issue). Why would one do this? The phone connects to the ATA which is in front of the router. If, on the other hand, you are referring to port forwarding to support some kind of server behind the firewall (i.e. game server, mail server, http server, ftp server, etc.) then yes, you need to do a port forward at the ATA to the IP address of the server in question. As an example, I run a mail server. When I had the ATA in front of the server, I had to forward port 25 (SMTP) to the IP of the mail server behind the firewall.

If you are talking about having the ATA behind the firewall and your router is not PnP compliant then you will have to do port forwarding for all the ports that the ATA is expecting to see. This is documented on the Vonage web site.

If "outside" means something else, perhaps you could elaborate.

Edit: I just re-read your post. You said "before Vonage recommended moving the ATA outside the router..." In that case, ignore the first paragraph.

I wish Vonage would just come clean on this issue.

This is like the stutter tone problem - depending on whom you talk to, some of them would ask you to try this and that and others tell you it is a system problem. Either:

- they did not know this (stutter tone problem) was a problem - which really means they have a problem with testing the device before rolling it out - this was a basic feature
- they knew the problem when they tested - they decided to ship something with bug and continue to lie to their customers (and maybe their own reps)

As inflexible as they are with deviations and exceptions, you would expect the company to be a well-run process-oriented machine. I don't understand how can things break left and right.

In any case, like a previous poster said, I am starting to think that the problem is related to network performance (or the MTA's inability to tolerate bad network connection). The ATA seems a lot better on this front.

i have quite a few posts on this forum, about my ongoing problem with dropped connections. After being sent a new VT1005, updating firmware, forwarding ports...trying everything and anything... I found that I am dropping connection only will uploading. I have stopped any uploading and I have not lost connection in days. I had my sister in florida (i'm in pa) upload a large file from me the other night and you guessed it...had to reboot after upload was going for about 20 minutes! After she was done getting the file, have not lost connection since.
So all along I believe it was bandwidth that was my problem, not the VT1005. Embarassed

So the tech I had been working with, just sent me an e-mail saying to reboot my ATA and wait 5 minutes. They supposedly are pushing a software upgrade to me......I grabbed a screen shot of all my version info, which he told me was the latest and greatest. I'm confused.....

Is there a problem with the Motorola's or not?

I understand that software can be buggy, just be straight with me......

After three weeks I have been able to hold the connection for three days time at best without rebooting my RCA modem and the V1005. My last input from tech support was to try another another brand of modem. The tech said they were having problems with all RCA modems. Did anyone else get this story? Did switching to another solve the dropped line connectionproblem?

Try putting the VT-1005 behind a router and see if that helps. The VT-1005 seems to be susceptible to failures (hangs) caused by a minimal amount of port scans. It is just not a very robust router.

A couple things to try, for those with issues:

1. Try to assign a static IP address to the VT1005, if it is behind a router. With my netgear, a "reserver" the same IP from DHCP, so it get the same one everytime.

2. Try port triggering the list of ports, Vonage tells you to port forward. This has worked for some.

I don't port trigger/forward, but I do reserver an IP addy, within my Netgear RP614v2 router, for the VT1005(I have it behind my router) and I have been up and running for 2 weeks straight now, without having to reboot the modem or anything. My power has never gone out either.

I finally got the problem fixed. Worked with a Vonage rep for about an hour and the problem seemed to went away after he moved us to a different server. It has been 4 days already and the service is relatively stable (not perfect but a lot better than before).

My service drops at least once a day w/ me having to re-boot the device....Then Vontage wanted to replace the device...and wanted me to pay 90 bucks to get a new one...then they would credit me when they got the old device back.....do you believe that? I argued...and they sent me one free of charge....but now they expect me to ship back the old one on my dime.....My patience is wearing very thin.....This technology is def...not been tested...Although I have to admit the techs I've been working w/ have been very helpful.....ohh well I guess I'll give it another week?
