How much was it to start the activation of the device? I am looking online for the cost of the adaptor.


I got my WRTP54G router under the "G for Free" back in July. It was $100 minus a $100 rebate, plus I had to mail in my old 802.11b router. I didn't pay a setup or activation fee that I recall, but that might have changed. I know they are offering a free month at Circuit City, I don't know about Best Buy, and most of the adapters are free after rebate (which requires 60 or 90 days of paid service to qualify for).

EDIT: I'm not recommending Circuit City over Best Buy. Either is fine, just relating my experience.

If u are going to replace a bad adapter , with the one you get from a retail shop, you can register it online on the web in your account where you can move lines from one adapter to the new one. also one can have a backup adapter a new one. if in case the one goes bad you can immediately register this one..this will be helpful for guys who dont wanna lose their business even for a minute.

I am currently based at RAF Lakenheath in England and have been using Vonage for a few months now. I have had the same problem with numerous companies. To solve this, I have a credit card that is addressed at my parents house, but my statements are electronic, and I had the router/adapter shipped to their place and they forwarded it on to me. Took a bit of extra time, but it was worth it. I also have the softphone on my laptop so I have Vonage whenever I deploy/travel and have access to broadband.

I personally prefer Best Buy, not only because I am a stock holder, but I still have negative fellings towards Circuit City for their promotion of DIVX discs during the early DIVX vs DVD wars in 98/99.

If you go to the Best Buy website, just search for Vonage, it will return three Linksys products, pick the one that fits you best, if you only have one computer and just need a phone adapter, then get that, there's also one that's a router and adds more ethernet ports and then there's one that is a wireless router as well as phone adapter.

Thank you guys for this information. The information you have provided is helping me out a lot. Exactly how does the Soft phone work? Is it just software that you install on your computer?

Yes. Soft Phone is a second line you can buy from Vonage that works on your computer. You still need a "primary" Vonage line which requires a router.

Other companies, such as Skype, offer a "pure" softphone, but that's a different business model. Vonage is targeting the person who wants a telephone, that works exactly like a telephone, and uses a conventional handset (including cordless). Like a POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) line, except you can take it anywhere, make unlimited US calls, and it's cheaper.

PS: One important side note on Vonage calling for anyone not located in the US. If you are stationed overseas, you need to understand that your Voange line, no matter where it is physically located, is a United States line. Say, for example, if you're in Belgium. You can call your friend in Florida and your sister in Washington for free, but calling the local train station 1/4 mile from your Belgium apartment will cost you International rates. Your phone number will be in the US, and Vonage will route your call over the Internet to one of their US Points of Presence. So calling the guy standing next to you is an International call.

One slight correction/addition. Unlimited, yes, but only 500 minutes included without extra charge on softphone for the $10 per month.
