PostPosted: Mon Oct 03, 2005 12:42 pm    Post subject: Which phone adaptor should I get? Reply with quote Back to top

I plan to sign-up for Vonage soon. I will use it at home, but also plan to take the phone adaptor overseas and use it in my hotel that has high speed internet.

I am unsure as to which phone adaptor to get. Overseas, my hotel has a high speed connection which I would connect the phone adaptor to, but I also want to hook up a wireless travel router, so the phone adaptor needs to have at least one port to hook up a computer or router. In addition, it needs to work on both 110V and 240V, as I don't want to carry a power converter too. Because I will be traveling, the smaller the pnone adaptor the better.

Is there an phone adaptor out there that will fit my needs? Would the one that Vonage sends out to those who sign-up online work? Thanks.

The one that Vonage sends you will work just fine and it is very small.

I think Luis is thinking of the PAP2 adapter, and I don't believe that's what Vonage will send you now. By default, I think they'll send a RTP300 router. The RTP300 will work fine, but its considerably larger than the PAP2, so not quite so nice for traveling.

I'd suggest one of two options. Call Vonage to sign up, and ask for either the PAP2, or the WRTP54G. I'm not sure if they're still offering the PAP2 or not, but it IS very small, and would be great for traveling. You would have to hook it up to one of the LAN ports on your travel router, but as long as the router you choose supports some QoS capability, that should work fine. Alternatively, the WRTP54P is larger - the same size as the RTP300, but includes a wireless B/G router, so you would only have to carry ONE box and power adapter with you when you're traveling.

Info including size and weight for both the PAP2 and the WRTP54G can be found on the Linksys website.

My travel router is the SMC SMCWTK-G which doesn't have any LAN ports, only a port to connect to the internet source. The only way this will work is if the phone adaptor has LAN ports. Is there a phone adaptor that has LAN ports and also works on 110 & 220? From what I have read it is one or the other, not both.

Its really too bad you already bought the travel router, because asking for a phone adapter with LAN ports is asking for a router. You're right - the Vonage routers supplied in the U.S. out of the box only work on 110, but they actually require 12 VDC at 1000mA, or 1A - its only the A/C adapter that's limited to 110. So finding an A/C adapter that will work with 110 and 220 shouldn't be too difficult. Thing is, you'll be carrying an RTP300 router which is nearly 7" x 7" by 1.5", plus the power adapter, plus your travel router. If you had waited to buy the travel router, you could be carrying a WRTP54G of identical size to the RTP300, but with a wireless antenna attached to one side - no second router needed. Either way, you'll need to find a dual voltage adapter capable of supplying 12 VDC at 1A.

Actually, looking up the specs on your travel "router" - its not a router at all, its actually an access point, also configurable as a bridge or repeater.

DallasFlier,

It looks like the Linksys WRTP54G wireless is the way to go. I am going to call Vonage and see if they will ship it to me.

Just curious, is it cheaper to sign-up through Vonage directly or is it better to buy the adaptor at a retail store?

Thanks

they won't. you'll get the rtp300 just like everyone else.
and it depends, but overall your best bet is to just get it through them.

Vonage says they maintain a small supply of wireless linksys router/telephone adapters, as well as a small supply of PAP2s, but those are only good for replacements if you purchased one at a retail store that turned out defective.
I'd say shop around for the WRTP54G. There was a time you got a $50 rebate from Best Buy and a $50 rebate from Vonage and a $50 gift card, so the thing was practically free. Nowadays they retail around $129.
Just check all of their computer haunts... Best Buy, CompUSA, Radio Shack, etc

Paul,

www.froogle.com shows that the price leader at the moment is Best Buy, who has the normally $129.95 router on sale for $25 off at $104.99.

I've decided to get an adaptor with the phone ports, but I see on Linksys' website that there are actually two routers that fit my needs, the WRTP54G and also the WRT54GP2. Would one of these be better than the other?
