ok, got the Vonage package today. as you open the package, you will notice a vonage cap included in the package. now thats a unique way to put more Vonage 'engineers' out there on the road.past the cap, you will see the usual paperwork, user guides, and deals. past that layer you will get to the meat of it: the linksys rt31p2 broadband router with 2 phone ports (in my case atleast).

i am on a sbc-yahoo dsl package. off to the dsl modem, which also acts as a wireless access point for me (2wire home portal). switch off the dsl modem and in goes a rj connector from my phone to the phone 1 jack on back of linksys rt31p2. next i connect a ethernet cable from my dsl modem (ethernet port) to the internet port on rt31p2 router. power on the dsl modem, power up the linksys router. next i connect another ethernet cable from the linksys ethernet port 1 to my laptop network port, to access the linksys router at 192.168.15.1. i didnt have to do much there, and i went straight to the status tab to see phone line 1 registered and idle. I pick up the phone and get a dial tone, and dial to my cell phone. the status changes to ringing and i get connected on Voip call.

so far so good. next up, i ring up a long distance (chicago-vancouver) call and talk on for around 30 minutes. suddenly i noted i was not able to browse on my laptop while i was oncall via vonage. no sites opening up nothing. time to hit the configurations. i couldnt see much where i can change the settings, except at the QOS setting for voice which i set at 256kbps (for my ~340kbps dsl). next up i browse to my account on Vonage and edit the bandwidth saver setting in dashboard. default is 90 (highest). i move the slider to mid (50) and note that these changes dont take effect upto one hour.i make a call again, generating enough noise on the call to keep the circuit flowing with traffic and note that i am able to browse net this time.

i am not sure what helped me out, as my Vonage experience is around 4 hours at the moment, so i am gonna play with the settings and tweak to optimal performance in both data and voice. also i remember that i set the mtu at 1492 instead of 1500 (default) in linksys config page.next up, waiting to do some international tests. so look out for that, right here!

Pros:

1. Cheap! $25 gets you all mainland US and Canada. If you have a good call traffic to Canada, and already have a broadband connection, go for it!
2. Online management for all your call activity. Check your call log, your vocemails, and even listen to your voicemails online! from anywhere, anytime!
3. portability, take it with you, and get connected as local subscriber to your home town, as long as you have a broadband connection.
4. simplicity! simple to set up.

Cons:
1. have heard a lot about not so good phone support. but have to experience it yet.
2. thinking hard for another con.

Ravneet, I''m curuious why you stay with SBC DSL. Don''t they require you to have a land line? It''s an additional 50$ + a month. I signed up for another Internet Service provider, then cancelled my DSL, and finally subscribed for vonage. That allowed me to tranfer my home # that was formerly tied to MY DSL. I bypassed the law that says you can''t tranfer a DSL # to vonage. Just thought I''d share my experience. It might just save you some money. Thanks, Arun

Very strong market leader with little explanation as to how their areas are decided. We live in an area much larger (7.5 times) than we used to live in yet we now have no support so we chose another area code. Vonage also doesn''t work as well with DLS as there is typically not enough bandwidth to support this. In our case we have two VOIP lines, 6 computers, one a mail server and web server and using a cable modem we seldom experience problems unless there are routing issues somewhere else on the internet. DLS just doesn''t have enough horsies to carry this load.

Arun If you look over SBC''s website very carefully you can get a SBC phone line for $14.00 plus taxes, to bring the total to near $16.50 depending on municipal taxes. The key is to just get the $9.00/mo. line charge and only take the Local Saver Pack for $0.50 per month & (then you get hit w/ $4.50 Fed. Access Charge) for the $14.00. And if you get SBC Yahoo DSL basic package, that was on special for $14.95/mo. So my total line charge & DSL Internet comes to be about $32.50/mo. The $32.50 plus $25 for Vonage will bring my total communications cost to $57.50 a month for unlimited local/long distance calls w/ all the features of call wait, etc, etc, etc...that SBC wants to ding you individually for. So you really don''t need to pay SBC any where near $50/month or more for basic local service I just ordered the new UTStar Wifi phone, so we''ll see how that works. Haven''t seen any posts in the forums, other than the review they had posted....guess I need to look a little deeper for that.
