What's the address of the page you're trying to access?

Try this:
* Pick up your handset (the one connected to the PAP2) and using the phone's keypad, press the star key (*) four times: ****
* When you hear an IVR prompt, press 110#. The system should then advise you for the PAP2's IP address.
* You can then use that address to access the PAP2's interface using your computer's browser.

If your IP address all 0s or starting with a 169.254.x.x, a hard reset might be needed. Refer to this article if that happens http://www.netphonedirectory.com/pap2tips.htm

Goodluck!

My desktop has a local area connection with limited to no connectivity. I had my desktop pc connected to a netgear n900 router and a vonage phone connected to the router's lan1 port. This caused i


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.

Vonage told me to install my D-Link router between the vonage adapter and the computer and I don't know how or which wires go into which ports.


First of all: it would be good to know which vonage device you are using. This would help to be more specific.

But anyways:
  1. Connect a normal Ethernet cable form your DSL or Cable modem to the Internet (or WAN) port of your vonage router.
  2. Then connect another Ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports of the vonage device to the Internet (or WAN) port of you D-Link (The one that is separated from the 4 LAN ports.)
  3. Make sure that the D-Link is set to DHCP (Dynamic IP Address), so it can get it's IP address from the vonage router. (Look at page 14 of your manual. If you don't have one, you can get it here.)
  4. Connect your computer to one of the LAN ports on the D-Link.
If you have any more questions or this desciption is not clear to you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Linksys And Vonage Setup Through Comcast


Hi there,
I will try to make this as clear as possible, but if you have nay questions, please come back here and let me know.

You will need 4 things: 1 Surfboard Modem, Wrt54G, vonage router, computer. Put them next to each other without having plugged in anything ( no ethernet, no power cable!). Make sure that the WRT54G router is back to default settings by pressing the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds.

  1. Connect the power cable to the Modem. Power light on?
  2. If yes, connect the coax cable from the wall to the modem. (The one that looks like a TV cable)
  3. Connect the power cable to the router and wait until the power light is on steady.
  4. Connect your modem to the router. Plug an ethernet cable first into the modem and THEN into the WAN port (the label says "Internet") of the router.
  5. Plug an ethernet cable into one of the router LAN ports and connect it to your computer.
  6. Power on the computer.
  7. Open the Control panel and the Network Connections applet.
  8. You should see something called "Local Area Connection".
  9. Double-click on it and click the Properties button.
  10. Double-click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and make sure both radio buttons are set to "Obtain...automatically".
  11. Close all Windows by clicking "OK".(The second one takes a moment, because it applies the settings.)
  12. In the open window choose the Support tab and you should see your IP address, your Default Gateway (192.168.1.1) and your DHCP server (192.168.1.1)
  13. Open Internet Explorer and type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar.
  14. If you have reset your router to factory defaults, leave the username blank and type "admin" in the password field.
  15. On the first page (Setup), you should set the Internet Connection Type to "DHCP", unless you get a static IP from comcast (which i doubt).
  16. Go to the Wireless tab and ensure that wireless is enabled.
  17. Go to the "Security Tab - Wireless Security" and ensure that NO security is enabled for now.
  18. Open a new browser window and see if you can open a web page. Use an address that is unlikely to be in cache - try "http;//www.mit.edu" or so.
  19. Close your browser for now and come back here later to setup your wireless security etc.
  20. Now power on your vonage router and wait until the power light comes on steadily.
  21. Connect an ethernet cable from a LAN port of the router to the WAN port of the vonage router. (Plug it into the router first!)
  22. The vonage device should blink and establish a connection (Internet light is steady on). This might take a moment, because the device is downloading the newest firmware as well.
  23. Once the vonage router is on and the lights are steady (you didn't say which vonage device you have, so I can't tell how many lights there are), plug normal telephone ( not a wireless one) into the vonage router and see if you can get a call signal.
  24. If you were successful - sit back for a moment, enjoy the triumph and treat yourself with a nice drink!
There are a couple of things you still have to do, but the main thing is done.
  1. Make sure that you can access the internet from your wireless laptop before you start changing settings.
  2. Get a manual for the router here.
  3. Go back to your router's web page and set up wireless security (don't use WEP - that is not secure enough)
  4. You will have to setup QoS (Quality of Service), in order to prioritize your VOIP traffic, so calls go through clear even when you are surfing/downloading.
  5. You can setup QoS via IP or MAC address. Use your vonage router's MAC address (you'll find that on the bottom sticker), because it creates less overhead.
  6. If you plug in anything else into your vonage router, it might be on a different subnet and might not be able to communicate with your other computers (vonage router often use 192.168.15.x as their IP address)
  7. Once you're up and running and feel familiar with the settings for your router, I would change to a different firmware, because QoS is a crucial point for VOIP and I never was really satisfied with the Linksys firmware. I use tomato, for the simple reason that I was afraid of other more complicated firmware and you can always go back to Linksys, of you don't like it.
So...my fingers are bleeding now, but I hope this helped you out.
If so, please come back and let me know. Others might have a similar question.
If not, just tell me where you got stuck and we will go from there. According to the movie 'Galaxy Quest':
"Never give up, never surrender!"

My in-laws have vonage telephone service with comcast internet, before they just had at&t with no problems. Now when they are having a telephone conversation the connection seems to cut in and out and...


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 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.

Connecting vonage vt2442


hi not sure if this problem is still there, with that device u may have to try a mac clone. have everything set up properly, and on the computer connected to the vonage go to the cmd prompt, enter 'getmac' and it will give u a mac address or try ipconfig/all and write down the mac address fro example it will say 00:12:3e:8d:ca:01 so write that down, then open an internet explorer page and empty everything from the address bar and type in 192.168.15.1, then a screen will pop up asking for a username and password., this is the settings interface page. router is both. then go to advanced set up, then ethernet options then u will see something about a mac clone. selct that the enter in the mac id u wrote down earlier than apply, now restart the whole system modem and vonage, then turn modem first wait for lights than vonage and wait for vonages power lights be solid green. then it should work.
it may not work in broadband is inactive or not enough speed to work sufficently. try that first :)

Philips phones


Moved from Texas (CST) to Florida (EST). Brought my vonage equip. with me and kept my TX phone number. Just bought a new Philips CD440 phone. I set the date and clock to correct time. When I receive a call, my phone then reverts back to CST (loses an hour). I have checked all my Vonage settings; they show me as having EST and my new FL address. I can't figure out what is making the Philips phone think it is in CST. This is spooky.

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.

Vonage V-phone


This indicates a disconnection of service or a cross in the wiring.
Have you done or had done any wiring changes?
Have you move anything around or disconnected anything recently?
Something has changed to get a USB error. Unless you have been disconnected for non-payment.
Hope this helps.
