I think this should work but I just want confirmation.

I'm leaving for a trip to germany to visit family there. Can I take my Vonage router with me, connect it to the DSL router at my relatives house in germany and I should be able to use my US phone number for incoming and outgoing calls just as if I was at home in the US ... is this correct? Thanks!!

Im sure you would need some sorta different adapter for the power. I dont think they have the same plugs there as in the USA.

Yes, I bought a 50 Watt voltage converter from Best Buy for the power. (The Linksys Router doesn't even take 220V ).
Now I read on a different thread that others had problems using the Linkssys on a cheap voltage converter; I guess some people actually messed up their router this way. A little worried about this now.

Assuming the power is taken care of, everything should be ok though.

Yeah I dont see any problem with it. It seems that european ISP's are not that great. I guess call quality would depend on the ISP that they are using. As long as you dont fry your router everything should work okay Lol

You should be good to go. That was one of Vonage's big selling points back in the early days, the fact that you had phone service in a device that could be carried in a briefcase, plugged into a modem in some CEO's office, and have calls being made within seconds after.
I've heard of some guys even who were stationed in Iraq; they all pitched in and bought a sattelite internet connection and used Vonage over that. Just like KD said, there were some quality issues that were caused by the ISP (Dropped calls mostly, satellite is probably the least reliable internet service out there) but overall it worked great, and these guys had U.S. Phone numbers in their tent in the middle of the desert.

hi jojo6! i just moved from DC to germany about two months ago, and had every intention of using the hell out of my Vonage account so friends and family could reach me without paying intl. charges, and i could reach them easily as well. in short? it works PERFECTY... with three caveats, two of which have already been mentioned in this thread:
1) power - yes, the difference in power matters... but plugs matter more than voltage, because the Vonage adapter's power brick goes between 120 and 240, so you're set there. you just need to buy some sort of converter for the physical plug difference. i think you can pick this up at a radio shack, but you can also get one in germany without difficulty... i suggest either 'saturn' or 'media markt', which are best buy type stores here in germany. once you have that, plug in your adapter and you're good to go.
2) bandwidth - the main 'entry level' dsl package you can get here, and the one that most non-power users buy, is only a 1MB/s dsl connection. not sure about the upload, but it's usually 10-25% of the download speed unless you buy an add-on to your dsl package to up the upload speeds (Which does matter for VoIP). if you use your Vonage setup on a standard 1mb/s dsl connection here in germany, it works great - so long as no one else is on the internet doing anything, and in particular, make sure you are NOT doing anything download/bandwidth intensive at the same time (ie bittorrent or the like). it'll kill your connection. believe me, experiences with an inconsiderate roommate have proven that fact (and forced me to set up a second phone line with private dsl).
3) phone cord - this i can't stress enough.... BRING YOUR OWN PHONE CORD!! the phone jack that meets the wall here in germany is totally different, and will NOT work with your Vonage box. you HAVE to bring your own phone cord (ie, the thing that goes between the wall and the phone, or in this case, the phone and the Vonage box). otherwise you're out of luck and you will NOT, NOT ANYWHERE find a phone cord that's set up like they are in the US. believe me, i've tried looking, just for a backup to the one i brought. you could also bring your entire phone setup (which i only did because i live here now!), but if you plan on using someone else's physical phone, just bring a phone cord and that's it. you'll be online and chatting in no time!

viel spaß in schönes deutschland,
c

i bought this adapter to take to sweden:

Universal AC/DC Adapter 1000ma-SS105
http://www.dvdoverseas.com/store/index.html?catalog12_0.html

i've used it on the 110 setting w/ no problems, so it should work in sweden (i don't leave for another few weeks).

it comes with the plug adapter, so that's one less thing you need to buy.

if you have the linksys router (rtp300 or rt31p2), you'll need an adapter like this one (because they only take 110v).

if you have a linksys PAP2, you will just need a plug converter (it already accepts 220).

good luck!

My experience has been that if you use a 220v to 12v adapter, it runs quieter, cooler, and better than if you adapt 220 to 110 and then again to 12 v dc. Adapters similar to the one that comes from Vonage for 110 are commonly available in Europe for 220.
