Call up tech support and have them send you an RTP300. Mine just arrived and so far I'm very impressed. It's a bit different than the RT31P2 as far as how it functions internally, but I'll post more on that later. There's quite a few physical improvements I've noticed upon taking it out of the box, which I also will post about later. One thing's for sure -- so far absolutely NO line noise whatsoever. Background noise is at least 2-3x quieter than my land line, while the audio signal level is slightly hotter. More signal, less noise, can't find any complaints in that. This unit also runs substantially cooler than my RT31P2. It's barely warm. More case ventillation, but I also think it puts out less heat as well. The operating temp of the RT31P2 seemed a bit too high for my liking as well.

Yep, I called India this morning and the CSR eventually decided that it was toast. According to the order confirmation email I got after lunch, an RTP300 is on the way.

I didn't realize that Linksys had gone with such different styling for their newer equipment, so it looks like the RTP300 won't stack neatly with my WRT54GS like the RT31P2 did.

Either way, at this point I just want something that works...

They've definitely improved the quality of the terminal adapter portion of the unit over the RT31P2... just did a data call... 50.6k connect using a crappy Lucent Winmodem (not even my USR Courier). I've never seen a connect speed like that on my landline. Bandwidth tests confirmed that I was indeed getting rates around that as well.

My question is, how do I get one.

I could do something to my current router, complain to Vonage, and have them send me a new one (if they offer free replacements).
But that's not a nice thing to do.

A quick search on google doesn't offer very much information on this router, and it's non-existent on the Linksys site.
It's not on eBay (no surprise there though).

I do not like the RT31P2 very much and had it behind my NAT/DHCP/Firewall router (SMC2804WBR), but even with the right ports forwarded, phone never worked right.
I spent an hour yesterday setting the RT31P2 as the first router in the network.
Both routers have NAT enabled, so I have to forward ports on both routers for certain services and programs on computers within the network.

The way I have the network setup, I can't give the SMC DMZ through the RT31P2, but that won't work because whenever anyone uses the phone, that DMZ'd IP doesn't get ANY bandwidth.
Literally takes 10 minutes for a page to load fully, if at all.
Does that no matter what QoS settings I use.
I spent about 40 minutes with Tier 2 support trying to figure that one out. Right before he was about to transfer me to someone else, I found out it was DMZ.

I also do notice that this box gets pretty hot.

I'm hoping to find more info on this RTP300. I really love the fact that this one is based on Linux firmware. That tells me two things.
Stable, and extremely customizable.
Can't wait for some 3rd party firmware to come out for this model.

If it has decent logging and an SPI firewall, I would use it in place of the RT31P2 and my SMC.
Add those to the pile of routers in the closet.

Anyone know what the street price for this thing will run?

I've only been with Vonage for a month now. **** they didn't change routers back then =\

(Why on earth is suck.s a bad word on these forums? That's lame)

I haven't used the RTP300 as a router yet, just phone adapter... not planning on using it for that until I'm on the road at a hotel or visiting an office. My WRT54GS router's not going to be taken out of service anytime soon. As far as how to get one of these, I'm not sure. There's an indication in the Vonage literature that comes with it that indicates it might be sold retail at some point...

"HELPFUL HINT: If you purchased your RTP300 Router from a retail location, you need to activate your device at www.vonage.com/activate. After activation, wait 30 minutes before checking for a dial tone." So these might replace the PAP2 at some point.

Is there any way to entice Vonage into sending me an RTP300 for free?

I don't know that I'd want to use it as a router yet... it appears to use the same router as the WRTP54G, which hasn't exactly received stellar reviews on here... Maybe after a few firmware revisions it'll be up for prime time. I'm sticking to my WRT54GS, which has been rock solid since it was installed.

I guess the blue LEDs can be considered "pretty"... but they're very bright. With dark-adapated vision, I can read by them. They also light up the room very well, which might come in handy in hotel rooms. Then again, I might need a sleep mask if I plan on leaving this thing on at night in a hotel room. The LEDs seem to be the brightest at a 45 degree angle, while looking at the router's front panel & top panel head-on makes the LEDs more reasonably bright.

Also, my impression that the RTP300 is a cooler-running box was easily confirmed -- the RT31P2 draws 9 watts when running, the RTP300 draws 6 watts.

My computer (two, actually), and every bit of networking equipment, plus laser printer are in the same room I sleep. The only time my computer is ever off is when there is a power outage or I'm cleaning the CPU Heatsink.

I've become used to light coming from my monitor while I sleep, so I'm sure adding some blue LEDs won't make much difference.

As it is, the networking equipment is about 2/3 of a foot higher than my monitor on a shelf in front of me (easy viewing of network activity Wink), so it shouldn't bother me too much while using the computer.
