Hi,

I am [soon to be] new to Vonage, so I apologize if this is a stupid question. However, I was looking into F1000 WiFi Handset and though "wow, great idea". But then, after reading some other posts thought "hmmm, there are cases where this wont work (ie: hotel with web page sign-in)".

So, Initially I may go with a regular (perhaps wireless) Vonage AP/router and plug in a normal phone. I also found some info on how to connect it to your pre-installed home line so you can have Vonage through out.

But, if the urge gets too much, I might still look into getting the WiFi handset. One, because it is a cool gadget and two it does have its uses.

My questions are:
- Can you have two Vonage adaptors?
....- One (like the RTP300) for when you are at a non-WiFi site
....- The other (like the F1000) for WiFi

- Can they be running at the same time (in the same location)
....- Say you have a WiFi router
....- can the F1000 run through the AP
....- which is also a Vonage adaptor, connected to your home line

Basically, I am wondering if I should risk starting with one and then moving to another (if needed). Or go with my original instinct and take the safer, albeit, not as geekishly exciting:) route. That being, take the RTP300 with me when I travel and plug in hardwire. As opposed to using the RTP as a fall back in case the WiFi does not connect (or scrping the RTP altogether).

Thanks,
Dyonysis

the answer to all of your questions is no, at least at this time.

There's a very recent thread on doing this. Basically, yes, if you can convince a customer service rep to do it, you can point your phone number to two MAC addresses.

Caveats: only one can be used at a time, inbound calls will ring randomly to one or the other, this is not a supported Vonage configuration and you probably won't "luck into" a rep who would be nuts enough to set this up for you.

Especially with the differences between the WiFi phone and the RTP300 adapter...

Short answer: I wouldn't try. Good luck.

PS: Here's the thread that talks about a guy who did do it. It works for him kinda like you are suggesting you want it to work, but I don't know if you'd run into big problems or even if Vonage would do it for you.

Thanks everyone. The key I was missing was the fact that the connection would be based on the MAC address (which makes complete sense).

I guess one thought (if one is to try this out, and reviewing that other thread from above) is that on some routers you can do MAC Address cloning. Not researching this further, it could be theoretically possible to have the router "pretend" it is the WiFi phone and possibly trick the service into working. But, you would only be able to use one device at a time (which was my intent at least).

Just a thought. But thanks for your replies.

Huh. Using MAC address cloning. Now that's interesting...

OK. Experiment. I changed the MAC address on my Vonage device using MAC cloning. Rebooted. I didn't get a line, so it looked like MAC address cloning might work, except...

after a minute, I got a line that just made odd little beeps when I picked up my phone. Then I got a dial tone after a few more seconds. Went into the setup screen and MAC address cloning was disabled. The MAC address "de-cloned" and reset itself. Interesting little startup script in that there firmware, I'd say...

So I'd say Vonage uses MAC address, which bodes well for your theory, but that they also have the router reset its own MAC upon startup, which, well, doesn't do so well.

Plus, if you cloned the MAC address and they did a firmware push...

Yeah, it's bad enough when they push them to devices they are intended for...
