Here's what I want to do: I want to move between my winter home in Florida and my residence in Massachusetts, and I dont want to lug the box with me. Technically, it's certainly possible to have a box in MA and a box in FL and have Vonage deactivate one, and activate the other when I move. But I can't seem to get a clear answer on whether they will do it. Does anyone have any experience with changing boxes?

Could you put the router in the line before the Vonage box (i.e. modem/router/Vonage instead of modem/Vonage/router and spoof the mac address of the Vonage box with the router?

wildflower,

from my understanding of the terms of agreement, your phone number is tied to a specific rt or ATA depending on setup (via it's specific MAC address). So if you leave your rt or ATA in one location, Vonage will not deactivate and re-activate another rt or ATA.

This is the primary reason why they offer the PAP2 though it is at your own cost so that it is easily portable.

So the short answer is no. Although your idea of using a router to spoof it is intriguing, I doubt it would work, though I have no confirmation whether it will or not work. My initial doubt is because the MAC address Vonage uses is on the bottom of the rt31p2 while the MAC address I cloned in the rt31p2 is not the same. So obviously they can still access my rt from their tech support even though I have changed the MAC address of the rt31p2 within its configuration.

That's why if you use the PAP2, you have good portability.

Just my 2 cents.

I got an easy anwser for ya, It will cost your twice as much, but who knows, Maybe it is worth it to ya. Get two "boxes" with two diffrent numbers. Then on the Vonage webpage set up SimulRing on both adaptors to the diffrent "box". Then if anyone calls you in NY or FL, it will ring on both phones. This way you never have to change the setup when you go to house to house. It will just always ring in both places. If I had two places I think this is what I would do (Maybe after I win the lotto Wink )

Yes, it is possible for them to deactivate the one in Florida and activate the new one in MA. Your phone number is tied to whatever MAC they have listed in their system, not just one in particular.

There are a lot of things that are possible. The question is will Vonage do it?

i don't think Vonage will let you do that. ( but you can try calling customer care, of course ) what i can suggest is for you to get a softphone so that you don't have to bring the phone adapter with you anymore. the softphone is a secondary line that you can add to your account. you can download it to your computer or to your laptop if you have one and you will be getting another phone number. it's just $9.99/ month for 500 minutes and 3.9 cents for every minute after that. there is a one time activation fee, by the way, it's $9.99.

I'm quite sure you can get a SoftPhone line and buy your own Sipura box. Two numbers, two lines, two boxes. This may save you small money as the box is around $100.

Not knowing all the details of your needs, I'd get two lines and two boxes. I'd then Simuring or FWD them both to each other so no need to start and stop and use only one of the voicemail boxes. If both places are occupied, just FWD after x rings so you can still catch calls to each other.

If money is the issue, lug it the three or four times a year beats paying if not needed.
