PostPosted: Fri Sep 30, 2005 5:40 pm    Post subject: Problems with Linksys PAP2 and WRT54GX2 Reply with quote Back to top

Connected through a brand new Linksys WRT54GX2, the PAP2 experiences a consistent, pulsating (about once a second) transmission loss, both upstream and downstream, after connected to a call. Speakers on both ends of the call only hear every other word being spoken. When I try to dial into voicemail systems, the access codes into the phone are not recognized by the voicemail systems. I've tried every router configuration suggested by Vonage (port forwarding, QoS, turning off wireless) to no avail, the WRT54GX2 doesn't work. The PAP2 works fine connected directly to the cable modem, and also through an older Linksys BEFSR41. Linksys says they have no problem. Anybody else?

I have a VT1000 and bought the GX2 and spent a day with the SAME EXCAT issue you describe. I would get on a call and it would pulse my cable modem lights and I would get every other word. After digging deeper on it I came up with a bug in the router that was setting the Internet port at half duplex. I did speed test and duplex test with and with out the Vonage adapter and they where cut in half vs. my WRT54G router. There are major problems with that router. I took mine back after I gathered all my data. You have 2 choices. Keep it and hope Linksys sees the problem and releases a firmware to fix it or bring it back. I would bring it back. I personally am going to wait for an 802i router. Let us know if you get it to work but after almost a full day I could not get the port to link up correctly.

Not sure what you are looking at but you can not see what the WAN port on a linksys is conneted at. You are at full duplex or you Vonage would be unsable.

Hi -- it's 10/21/05 and I have the exact same problem. I replaced an original WRT54G router (dead) with the WRT54GX2 thinking the latest and greatest hardware was the way to go.

Wrong. The first & second posts here describe precisely what happened: my VT100 box is essentially unusable. I emailed Linksys & Vonage. We'll see if two extra weeks to think about this has created any solutions. Sigh, I don't want to take it back and wire/configure everything all over again. Ugh. I suppose WRT54GS is the one to get?

I think I may have found the issue. I since then went and bought a PRE N Belkin router and had the same problem so I knew there was more too it then a duplex issue. I tunred on loggin in the Belkin and it thought the amount of Vonage traffic was a DoS attack. In the Belkin I was able to turn of the DoS stuff and bang it worked like a charm. Funny part was the Belkin wireless was worse than my WRT54G so I took it back also.

Try and find that in the Linksys or turn off SPI and see if it works. I think the Linksys uses the Airgo chipset which the Belkin did also. Let me know if that is the case I may pick one up again.

Interesting. I don't have access to the router now, but looking at the online docs, under the "Security" tab there is an option to disable the firewall, removing SPI.

I'll give it a go later today. Many thanks.

Disabled the firewall as suggested, and Vonage works just fine now.

Linksys needs to fix this! Thanks for finding the solution. Still haven't heard back from either tech support. Rolling Eyes
