PostPosted: Sun Jul 10, 2005 1:36 pm    Post subject: Advice Please Reply with quote Back to top

Hello, I am new to all of this and have a few questions. I am able to get the Linksys WRTP54G for free (after rebates) along with a $25 Circuit City gift card in this week's ads. I can also simply get the free PAP2 phone adapter to hook to my existing wireless DLink 802.11b wireless router.

I have read that there are some problems with the WRTP54G, and that some fixes have recently been issued, so now I am confused as to which would be the best device. When I did the first speed test, the connection came through at 4.58 MPs download, 565 Kbps upload and 91% QOS. It said that I could support up to 7 Voip, the second time I ran the test it said that I had a 4.05 MPS download and 88.3 Kbps upload speed and could only support 7 Voip line. I ran the test a few more times and they all varied dramatically with some saying that I could support 0 Voip lines.

Does a G router significantly increase the speed from the cable modem? If so, am I better off trying the combination unit?

Thanks

it has no effect on the cable modem and "g" has to do with wireless which has even more nothing to do with the cable modem.
sounds like you're missing an obvious clue that your isp is flaky. who do you use? testyourvoip.com, boston server, detailed results, is also a good test to run.

Thanks, I ran the test three times from that site and it provided me with the same 4.4 score each time.

With knowing that the "G" portion of the router is the only benefit of the other router (and my wireless laptop gets perfectly fine signal strength now) - I think I will stick to the PAP2.

If I connect the PAP2 device directly to my router rather than inbetween the cable modem and the router - would that be beneficial? I had thought I read somewhere that doing that was better.

Thanks again for the help.

you have no choice. the pap2 is either the only thing plugged into your cable modem or it's behind a router. it's not a router itself, just a "simple" TA.

I recommend getting the PAP2, and connecting it to a router instead of getting that combined router/adapter unit.

First off, if you have the PAP2, you can just disconnect it from yrou router, leave your network intact, and take the PAP2 to some other site and use your phone number there. You can take advantage of the portabiliity of teh device.

Secondly, if you use the combined box, and there is a problem with the router or wi-fi functionality, you have to get a whole new phone adapter box. If wi-fi technology improves, you can get a new router if you have a separate adapter box.

Personally, I like the ability to just disconnect the PAP2 and take it to another location while leaving my home network intact.

I read somewhere that you could also disconnect the combine router and use it at another location.
Ex: Can I do this? Ontario in Summer and Florida in winter with same phone number.
Please say yes! Smile

part of the nature of Voip in general is this ability. it's nothing special or provider/device specific.

Here is a scenario for you: You get a Vonage adapter or Vonage combined Router/adapter. You get it with an Ontario phone number and then get a virtual number with a Florida area code. Then, as you do the snow bird thing (Florida in the Winter, and Canada in the Summer), you bring the Vonage device with you, and connect it in each place to your high speed internet connection. Then your Ontario friends can get in touch with you by dialing a local number even when you are in Florida, and when you are in Canada, your Florida friends can dial your Florida number, and it will all get directed to the same Vonage adapter, no matter where you are.

You also can do the Simulring thing to yoru cell phone, so no matter who calls you, or to which number, Canada or Florida, it will ring your cell phone also. That was the crazy ex girl friend in Quebec can find you even though you are spending the cold artic winter in the Florida Keys.
