PostPosted: Tue Oct 25, 2005 7:43 pm    Post subject: Which adapter should I get? Will be a new customer! Reply with quote Back to top

When I attempt to sign up for Vonage, I get a list of choices for the adapter. Motorola VT1005RB, Linksys RTP300, Linksys WRTP54G, or VTech IP8100. PAP2 is not one of them. But, I have bought it from Circuit City!

I already have a WRT54G router.

I am in North Carolina and have Time Warner Road Runner (high-speed internet).

Which adapter should I get to get the best quality? I can return the PAP2 to Circuit City if it is not the best one.

Thanks,

Navid

I have never used the PAP2 but from what I hear it is a pretty good adapter. Since you already have a router there would be no point in getting an adapter with a built in router. I would probley return the adapter to circuit city though and order a standalone adapter from Vonage. This way if the adapter fails or falls apart like they often do, you can have a new one overnight and send the broken one back.

The RTP300 seems popular at this time. That has an intergrated router. Not sure if you can turn that part of it off or not. Im sure some other people will post some ideas.

I would get the adapter through Vonage though.

If you decide to keep the PAP2, make sure you do a RETAIL activation from www.vonage.com and you will enter in the MAC address of the device you bought.

Look on the front page of vonage.com for retail activation.

RTP300 gets my vote.. I have a WRT54GS and use the RTP300 as a voice adapter and pretty much don't bother with the router portion of it. Superior sound quality to the PAP2/RT31P2 adapters. I do occasionally use the router when travelling, handy when there's only 1 data jack in the hotel and you want to use both the laptop & Vonage line. Also comes very much in handy when hotels require authentication (which is done through a web browser). Without the integrated router, you'd end up needing another router on the road, or would have to use the laptop as a router.

Yes, that's the word Smile Make sure to steer clear of the RT31P2s now though! Those things have had more than one "nasty problem" I can recall.. *sigh*

Currently my RT31P2 is being replaced with an RTP300 because of the most recent (caused by 1.30.01) - causes the web interface to stop responding after about a day of use *grumble*

Gotta say their service has changed since January though :\ The cost of having wait time cut down from an hour to almost none is that now you have to get through 2 people (3rd person) to do what the 1st person used to do for ya (or 2nd at worst)..

Oh well, still better than the landline companies Smile They just tell ya to shove it and shut up lol.

Yeah though, the PAP2 will probably serve ya fine unless ya want an RTP300, thing is you don't get all the rebates (if you got those!)

I bet you'd be able to get the RTP300 at a store though, but for $89 vs the ~$50 you pay for the PAP2. *shrug* that and I think it requires a bit more ventillation.

Oh well, whatever works best Very Happy

I bought my PAP2 at Best Buy. I came straight home and did a retail activation. I was up and running less than 15 minutes after opening the box. I have had Roadrunner and a WRT54G since September 2003. I have had ZERO problems. My advice is to stick with the PAP2 and do a retail activation.

My config is the same as galion's - PAP2, WRT54G, Roadrunner - and it has been completely trouble free (although I'm a relative newbie with only 2 months of service so far). The PAP2 is easy to set up, because Vonage has locked most all the settings, but it works very well.

The PAP2 does have VERY stable firmware and is reliable.... but I'll take the better sound quality of the RTP300 over it. Just my $0.02.

Yes, I have the rebate forms. If I get them all, I will actually make money because they have also included a $50.00 gift card from Circuit City!

I hope that if something goes wrong with the adapter, I can return it to the store and get it fixed/replaced. If this is not the case, that would be a very bad choice and I don't know why anybody would buy the adapter from a store then!

PAP2 is not one of the choices if I have Vonage ship the adapter to me. The RTP300 will cost me $9.99, while the PAP2 will be free if the rebates work.

Can anyone confirm what will happen if the adapter stops working after 1 year if I get it from a store and if I get it from Vonage?

Thanks for all the inputs. Please keep them coming.

Navid
