PostPosted: Mon Nov 24, 2003 8:27 pm    Post subject: SOHO Phone Systems Reply with quote Back to top

Is it possible to plug SOHO phone systems, like the Panasonic KX-TA624, into your Vonage Voip adapter?

The KX-TA624 plugs into a standard POTS phone jack.
Ideally I'd like to get as many as three Vonage lines, and route them through my KX-TA624 around the office.

Thanks,

-Peter

Hi:

We have a Nortel Venture 3-line phone system with, three nortel phones.

Two of the lines are traditional POTS phone lines, and the third POTS was replaced with the Vonage phone line. Works okay, but.......

For some reason, Called ID does not come through on the Nortel phones nor on the old Panasonic 900mhz cordless phone. We purchased a brand spankin new 5.8ghz uniden cordless and THAT works fine for Caller ID; but the old Nortel and Panisonic are not picking up the numbers.

I have the new motorola ATA - perhaps that is to blame?

Otherwise, **LOVE** the service.

I have just installed a 4 line panasonic system with 8 wireless hadsets to 3 Cisco ATA's 4 lines for Voice and 2 lines for faxing.

It has kicked my bu** for the last month or so.

Some days it works fine, and others it awful.

I pay for 384kb/s upload and 1.5 mb/s download.

I have set all the ATA's to 30 kb/s which should give me a max of 120 kb/s. Only when I send a fax should it use bandwidth, so I know that this is 90 kb/s, but I don't send many faxes, but I do need a reliable small business phone system.

Vonage support has been OK (ish), but I am not entirely happy with that.

My setup is as follows...

Cable service coming in, connected to a Cisco uBR900 which is in turn connected to a Linksys BEFSR81 (I got this for the QOS) with QOS enabled for the Voip. I have had to get my 2003 server to reserve the IP's for the 3 ATA's so I can port forward specific ports 5061,2 and 3 to the respective IP addresses.

The ATA's then plug into my 4 line phone system.

Should work in theory, but can't get it to work reliably at all. I have dropped calls, one way comms, fast busy tones and some times nothing at all.

By reading this forum it look slike changing out the Linksys for the Netgear RIP, should solve all my problems, haha, heard that before.

Has anyone tried using the Vonage softphoen for multiple users???

I will stick with Vonage, but it shouldn't be this hard...

Grrrrrrr

Does your cable Company offer extra IP addresses ? How about going from the cable modem to a small switch. Plug each ATA into the switch and also your server. (You could also put a firewall between switch and server).

Then plug the ATAs into the phone system. This would allow troubleshooting of 1 line at time.

Just a thought...

Thx for the reply and yes I have 5 static IP addresses avaliable.

I thought the ATA's could only use dynamically assigned IP Addresses from a DHCP Server. This kind of limits me to using one IP Address going out of my DHCP Server and then port forwarding inside my router (if there is enough forwarding entry's for each ATA IP Address.

In the Vonage FAQ's they say to forward

5060 to 5063 to the IP's of the ATA's, well I need to do 5061 to 192.xxx.xxx.xxx 5062 to 192.....and so on. and also do port 69, 52 and why use 10000 to 20000 to the IP's?

Thx

My Vonage phone works great from Brazil!

What would be perfect would be if I could have calls to my Vonage phone be forwarded to my Brazil cellphone when I am out.

Specifically, what I am thinking is: some (inexpensive) device that connects to 2 lines - line 1: Vonage, line 2: local telco and takes incoming calls on line 1 (vonage) and connects to line 2 (local telco) which dials out to my local cellphone.

I have done some searching on this topic and there seem to be some soho hybrid pbx products that may do this (in addition to a lot of stuff I don't need). The feature seems to be called "call bridging." Have any of you done something similar? Are there any devices that can do this for a reasonable price ($100-200 or less)?

Thanks!

Same problem here, Nortel Venture 3 line, love that phone. I've tried Vonage with many other CallerID phones and it works fine, just line 1 of the Venture doesn't work (line 2 is fine). I've even tried other Vonage adapters primarily for call quality reasons (Motorola VT1005, Linksys RT31P2/WRT54GP2/PAP2), none worked with line 1 of the Nortel.

Have submitted a request to Aastra for info on a possible workaround, perhaps the pbx-like features can be disabled (from using line)?

I have 4 Vonage lines, 4 Vonage linksys boxes (routers, I forget the model, RTP3something) And the fax port of the primary line is directly connected to the fax machine. The Vonage boxes have their own cable modem with 4.5MB down and 512k up, and multiple IP's and are connected to it, via a hub which has nothing else connected to it. 3 lines are business and the fourth is our personal line. I have completely disconnected from the PSTN (landline, phone company, etc...) All my voice calls work fine, no issues with Vonage service for the most part with the rare exception of the little annoyances like the call waiting beeping more than the normal PSTN's two call waiting tones. I also connected the cat-3 cabling in my house to all 4 Vonage lines, and disconnected the pairs at the NID, taking me off of the PSTN completely and allowing me to connect to all 4 Vonage lines, separately at all jacks in my house. I even got my DirecTiVo series 1 DVR dialing up correctly with Vonage!

To all of you having problems with quality, I have one three word suggestion that won't fail you.

BUY SOME BANDWIDTH!!!

I have worked in the ISP industry since the early 90's and I can assure you that these Vonage devises grab a lot more than the codec they use demands. So get higher upload, that's the key. Limiting yourself to 256 or 384 aint gonna cut it if you're doing anything but single line, light internet use type of stuff.

My business is expanding and I need a phone system for my home office that will allow me to grow, a little, but without costing a fortune. So far the prettiest phones to look at, seem to be these Nortel/Astra Venture phones. The only thing I can't seem to figure out from what I've been able to dig up online, is do the additional phones, have access to their own voice mail boxes, and can they be chosen from the auto-attendant?

Other than that, they look like the way to go.

If anyone has questions about my setup, or need help getting theirs working, give me a shout.

If you are local, and want me to send one of my technicians to do it for you, that can also be arranged, for a fee :) , but help for a fellow techie is never a problem.

Hi, perhaps you can help me on this. I have a Analog system, Panasonic KX-TVS75. Three lines plus a fax.

I looked at the Aastra phones you mention and they look good at a reasonable price, that with a IP gateway seems like it would do. Do you know if the gateway plugs into the Vonage router and I'm good to go? Would I need two routers for three lines? I guess I plug the gateway where my PBX set up is and connect to this so I can use existing office wiring? Seems like the gateway elimiates the need for two routers?


Should I keep the panasonic system or dump it?

I think I have 384 DSL but I can upgrade easily enough. We do a lot of international faxing.

PostPosted: Sun Jan 29, 2006 11:13 pm    Post subject: Nortel Venture Phones Reply with quote Back to top

I have Nortel Venture Phones and was experiencing issues with Vonage calls. After reading the posts in this fourm, I moved my service to line two of the Venture Phones and all issues went away.

I originally had local service from SBC plugged into line 1, and to test Vonage before terminating my old service, I placed Vonage on line 2 which worked fine. A few weeks later I terminated service with SBC and moved the Vonage to the line one position. That's when issues started. Unfortunately, they are random and inconsistent making it hard to troubleshoot. I've worked on this for many months off and on and was about ready to terminate my Vonage service and go back to SBC. I had even gone out and bought a new phone adapter. It was after I had replaced my adapter and the problem continued when I decided to search the web for "Vonage and Venture problems".
The Venture Phones use line one to communicate with one another (intercom, shared directory, etc...). Although I could now make and receive quality phone calls, these Venture Phone features stopped working when I moved the Vonage to line two. To resolve this, I plugged line one into my old phone adaptor (not hooked up to the network). This gives the line one position on the Venture phones enough voltage or signal so they can communicate with each other. My new phone adaptor runs line 2. Now everything is working perfectly again.
