Make sure your the internet is working fine on the router. If it is, you need to call vonage and have them activate the phone ports of the router. The phone ports on the back of the router needs to be registered first through vonage. That should do it.

I have comcast cisco cable that is working fine but when I hook up vonage I get no internet why?


More than likely you need to enable split tunneling on vpn settings in router. If Vonage uses a vpn tunnel like other VOIP services do, then it is probably encrypting all traffic on your Internet/WAN interface. With split tunneling enabled it will only encrypt traffic to and from Vonage. I'm making a few assumptions here, but it should be worth a check.

Service Hook-ups...


1- in order of what connects to what
1- linksys connects to road runner modem. Should be a network connection on the back of the router that says uplink. This connects to the road runner`s wired port on the back of the unit.
Vonage phone will/should connect through the wireless section an in your personal wifi connection when you get the router wireless setup. Name your wireless something that other people are not using and then tell vonage phone to connect to that network.
Hope this helps

Did this connection ever work before? I have a similar setup with Iristel and once in a while it goes down (Hurricane Leslie generated the problem last week).

Check whether the setup works without the Vonage device. This will tell you whether the problem is with your router or the Vonage box. If it works without the Vonage, the problem is in the Vonage box, you may find a good time to call Vonage for support.

I don't know whether the Vonage box (in my Iristel case it's a mediatrix 2 something) has to 'call home' before it lets your router set itself up.

If your router does not work without the Vonage, you have a simpler problem, the router is the issue. You can reconnect the Vonage and if the phones work, this confirms that the router is the problem. At least you can use the phones.

With the router, you need to log in to the admin screens and poke around until you find the problem. It is always a good idea to only change one thing at a time and always remember what changed immediately before the problem was noticed.

Can you help me set up my home computer my time warner modem n vonage modem with my belkin router?


So you are trying to set up the router.
you can connect the router to the modem and the computer to the router.
Set up your router properly sothat your computer can go online through the router.
Pnce your computer is online through the router, then connect the Vonage to the router and it should work.
First make sure that your computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the Time Warner cable modem.

Firewall block


you don't if you are sensible. Set the firewall with the correct ports instead, ask vonage for the port settings you need.

With choppy audio and one-way audio, either party on the call hears the audio breaking up, or no audio at all. Dropped audio is when a call is in session and both parties are unable to hear each other.
  • From your Vonage account, there is a feature called the bandwidth saver. This feature controls the amount of bandwidth used for a phone call. Try adjusting the bandwidth saver to either medium or normal. After you adjust your settings, test and see if there is a difference in the audio quality. Please note that when you change bandwidth saver it could take a few minutes for the device to reboot and take the changes. From your Vonage account, there is a feature called the bandwidth saver.

  • Ensure that your Vonage device is at least four feet away from any other device.
  • Ensure your Vonage device is in a well ventilated area to keep from overheating.
  • Ensure no file sharing, P2P applications, or large downloads are running while you are using the phone. These activities can use up most of your bandwidth, leaving little left for your calls.
  • Connect your Vonage device directly to your cable / DSL modem, if it is not already. If this helps the audio quality, then the problem is occurring between the Vonage device and modem.
  • If your Vonage device connects to another router and not directly to your cable / DSL modem, try disabling any firewalls or SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) on that router. Click here to learn about firewalls and SPI.
  • If you wish not to disable your firewall, then you can port forward the Vonage traffic to the adapter. Click here to learn about port forwarding.

Vonage does not work with D-Link router


If you plugged a telephone into your D-link router, unplug it - that can not work!
You have to plug your vonage router (WAN port) into the D-Link (LAN port) and connect your phone to one of the LAN ports of the vonage router.

If you do not need the wireless capabilities of the D-Link, you can simply take that one out and only use your vonage router.

If you need more help, I would need more details form you:
Which vonage adapter are you using?
How is your setup (i.e. modem -> D-link -> vonage & computers)
What connections are you using (wire/wireless)?

You can also find help here.
