I was just wondering if anyone's tried opening a "normal" dial-up connection to another computer over a Vonage line. I know most people would never need to, but say for example I needed to dial into my company's internal network... possible?

As long as the modem connects at 33.6kbp/s it works. I do this all the time when I go to Sebring. It works very well for me, no choppiness or dropped calls. If you have a v.92 modem with an isp that supports it, that would be better because the latency is a lot lower (Its still not bad with v.90). Set the bandwidth saver to 30kbps. Keep in mind this is going to depends on the quality of your phone line. If you are seeing a lot of errors in your status dialog for your modem, your calls are probably going to be choppy and dropped. Also once I dial-in I usually have to let the modem sit there for about five minutes before it becomes stable enough for a call to go though (I don't know why but thats the routine). But after that it works extremely well. I don't get disconnected by my isp so I leave it dialed-in for the entire weekend.

Why would you turn down the bandwidth saver... you want as much bandwidth as you can get if you're using dial-up through a connection that's converting to digital then back to analog. I'm pretty sure that if your analog phone line is reduced to being converted to a 30 kbps digital pipe, there's no way you're going to get even close to 30 kbps out of the dial-up connection...

Recently when we moved and were no longer able to get DSL, but before we got cable, we used dial-up for about a month. Even though the phone calls on the POTS line sounded perfectly clear, the line still wasn't good enough to get anything above a 32 kbps dial-up connection on the best days. With the bandwidth saver turned down to 30 kbps on a line that already has some acoustic challenges, that's got to severely limit connection rates. If people are having problems with their voices being echoed at 90 kbps, imagine how much of a hard time data will have getting through at 90, much less at 30.

Even if you set the bandwidth saver up to 90 kbps, I'm sure you're not going to have very good connection speeds. I haven't tried any of this, so I don't know what the numbers would look like.. Maybe I will try that this weekend, though.


******************Updated***********************
After re-reading your post, I think I misunderstood what you meant... You're talking about using Vonage service over a dial-up connection, while I think the original post was about making a dial-up connection over a Vonage phone line. They're both interesting things to try, though, and it's cool that they both can be done. Sorry to have posted without realizing what you were talking about Embarassed

I've had no trouble at all using Vonage to dial-up other servers via dial-up modems. Got a 50k connect rate from the modem too! I'm using the RTP300, which I do believe makes a difference. The RT31P2 was rather noisy and that would have interfered with call, but the RTP300's very quiet. I've always tried it with the 90kbps (highest) bandwidth that Vonage supports and it's always worked quite nicely. Some people have had to throw a DSL filter between the Vonage adapter and computer modem, but I've not needed it.
