Is there a way that I can shut the phone off via the router? I want to kill the phone at night.

I can unplug it, but I would rather do it with the router.

You can certainly unplug the router if you don't mind losing internet service. That has the advantage- perhaps- of forwarding calls to your "network unavailable" number.

That can be pain though. I was hoping to be able to somehow shut down a port, but I can't figure out how. I coud put my Linksys router in first then plug the Vonage router into it and shut the port off to kill connection, but then I lose qos on the Vonage router.

This may be difficult, but have you tried unplugging the damn phone?

I would say that the ability to modify the RG-11 ports on the router is probably inside of the protected-Vonage area, thus there'd be no way to disable the RG-11 port via the router's interface. This is a program out there that I've seen that can allow you to turn power on and off from an HTTP interface, but I can't remember what it's called. Basically, it's an on/off toggle controlled by some sort of software. No idea on the name or cost though.

Edited for Brainfart: It's called X10 (Home Automation)
Anyone remember the guy who wires his house every Christmas like nuts and then LETS people via X10 control what they do via the Web?

Here's X10's site: http://www.x10.com/home.html?4450aeee2fd9297b438f4687

I think this is what you want: http://www.x10.com/automation/ck18a_s_ps32.html

There are a couple of options for you.

1. As others have suggested, unplug the router. Of course, you'd want another router in front of it if you wanted the rest of your network to function.

2. Put another router in front of the Vonage one, and you can use "Parental Controls" or the like to deny the Vonage router internet access between set hours of your choice. You'd need a router with Parental Controls. I know the WRT54G with HyperWRT has those, I don't know about others.

If you used option 2, you could set the router up with remote configuration and, as long as you knew your IP address, you could turn it on or off everywhere you can get an Internet connection.

The $100 solution to unplugging the phone is PrivacyCorps Caller ID Manager, which allows easy Time of Day routing, so you can SILENTLY send calls to Voicemail or just let them go unanswered (again, silently) when ever you want. I got this intially to block private numbers (despite thinking it was overpriced), but I've really come to see the value in the other capabilities like the ToD control. Also works great as a call blocker - allowing calls to be sent to VM or ringing (silently) based on private/blocked number, area code, area code + NNX, or entire number match. So while it is still overpriced, at least I I don't have to complain about Vonage not having ACR anymore!! Very Happy

Thanks for the replies. I think that I am going to put a router in front of the Vonage. This way I can disable ports via the internet.
