PostPosted: Sun Aug 21, 2005 12:10 am    Post subject: RTP300 v.1.00.43 changes? Reply with quote Back to top

Hey all,
Was placing calls earlier tonight & had the router appear to act up a bit...only to later realize it was trying to snag firmware inbetween my calls. Does anyone know what changes have been made?

So far I've noticed:
1) *70 works (call waiting disable)

2) Click-2-Call works and shows a snazzy (C2C-phone # dialed) on CallerID when ringing in.

3) The delay time between entering a feature code (ex: *70, #90, etc) and getting the second dial tone has been reduced to a very reasonable time now, almost instantaneous (like the RT31P)

4) Bandwidth Saver works. (woohoo!) 30kbps actually works on my old analog dial-up modem connection. Not ideal, but a nice alternative when the hurricane hits later this year. Bandwidth Saver changes seem to happen in ~2 minutes or less of changing them on the website.

5) *99 does not work, so it appears the only way to change the bandwidth setting is through the website. Maybe they'll get this in the next firmware revision.

5) Router web interface doesn't seem to glitch out like the 1.00.37 firmware did.

6) The router seems more eager to make the dial tone disappear when there are network problems now. Previously, the phone adapter would give you a dialtone shortly after it had powered up, even if it had never established contact with the Vonage servers.

7) Startup time appears to be reduced.

Cool I'm assuming there's also been router improvements as well, but since I only occasionally use it as a router, I can't say for sure.

Has anyone else noticed anything I left out? I'm sure there's more changes/fixes than what I've found. Linksys hasn't posted the new firmware under their GPL downloads yet, so I don't have anything to go by other than my observations.

NOW the RTP300 feels like a production model rather than beta test. The *99 glitch is a bit annoying, but this is most certainly better than 1.00.37.

Kudos Vonage/Linksys/Texas Instruments! So far I'm very pleased with the update. We'll see how it holds up as time goes by.

Thanks for the info. I don't have an RTP300, but it's good to have someone posting updates on how the firmware is evolving.

Nice catch VonageTPA...

Hopefully they've addressed the DMZ/VPN issue too. But the real vote of confidence will be when the RTP300 is once again the default device sent out by Vonage.

I'm hoping that the report of the RTP300 hold due to the "Panasonic echo problem" is true, and that it can be addressed via firmware.

Initial tests show seem to indicate that the Routing/DMZ issue is at least partially fixed. I can make outbound calls with it enabled - but I only tested a few. It doesn't seem to route inside network trafiic correctly yet but that is something that I can live with if I have to. I'll be able to tell by tomorrow if any echo issues are fixed when I call from my office tomorrow.

BTW, does anyone know what port in the QoS tab to set to give phone highest priority? I thought it was automatically builtin but when using this as the frontend router and downloading a large file, calls start to break up.

Due to the crippled QoS interface, I figured that it was automatic too. It appears that the RTP300 lets you prioritize any non-zero port though, so who knows???

Also, would love to hear if this has had any impact on echo problems...

Could someone describe (in detail) the Panasonic echo problem? I've rounded up a few Panasonic phones to try. So far no echo, but I want to make sure I'm doing the same steps that everyone else is to get the echo. Also, how does the DMZ problem work/happen? I have a little bit of time this week and might do a little experimenting

I encountered the DMZ/VPN problem here:

  • If I disable DMZ functionality, my phone works fine, but PPTP vpn client doesn't work.
  • If I enable DMZ functionality, my PPTP vpn client works, but people can't hear me when I call them.



The Panasonic echo problem was mentioned by kpdillon here. Basically the person you are talking to hears an echo of their own voice.

Hi Vonage,
I had the echo on my newly installed RPT300 and it occurred on the newest panasonic expandable phones. The nice expensive ones that you can download ring tones and wall papers on. It was, as said earlier, only heard from the person that I was calling and I never heard it. I was the person who went to Bestbuy and bought 1600.00 worth of their newest expandable wireless phones to find one that would not echo and it ended up being the cheapest model they carried that will expand to 8 phone a Motorola 760. I tried all the Panasonics and all the Uniden models. All had the same echo. My guess is it is something in the digital feed in these phones but I can't tell you why the Motorola is a digital phone and has no echo. Maybe it has low tech digital Lol cos was only 89.00 or so!

I haven't noticed any sound quality issues with my RTP300, other than the first couple of calls had some static, but it would always go away after a few minutes. By the end of the first day, it would only take about 5 seconds for it to go away. I've noticed once or twice when calling from outside, that I've heard an echo when I talk, but only right at the very beginning. After "Hello", it goes away.

The annoying thing for me, is that I haven't been able to get the VMWI working with my vTech vt2461 phone. I know there's been a lot of discussion about VMWI (visual message waiting indicator) on this forum, but I haven't seen anyone talking specifically about the RTP300, so I don't know if it's just my phone, or the RTP300. I've called support twice, but they don't seem to have a clue what I'm talking about. They keep telling me it's not a service they offer. I can't get it through to them that it's not so much a service from them as it is a feature of the adapter. In press releases for the RT31P2, they specifically mention FSK VMWI, but documentation for the RTP300 is nowhere to be found on the internet from Vonage or Linksys (other than quick install instructions), and the included manual doesn't mention it at all... although I did download the source code for 1.00.37 from the Linksys site, and searched through it, and I did find references to FSK and VMWI.

So to end my rambling question (and my first post to this forum) does anybody know about using the voicemail message waiting light on my phone with the RTP300?
