Question about Vtech mi6896 Trio Cordless Phone

3 Answers

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 sometimes disconnect? nAlsos I should mention before and now the types of phones vary throughout the house as they did before. The telephone lines within the house are thesame as before with the exception of the at&t incoming lines have been disconnected.

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.

Wireless Routers and Cordless phones — If you have a wireless router and a cordless phone:
  • Ensure all wireless devices and cordless phone bases are at least four feet away from each other.

Home wiring — If you are using home wiring:
  • Ensure the land line has been disconnected in the Demarc box. Ensure the land line has been disconnected in the Demarc box.

  • Ensure there are no more than five phones connected through the house wiring. The signal fades as more phones are connected to house wiring.
  • Test with one phone directly connected to your Vonage device. If this fixes the issue, there may be a problem with your house wiring.
If you have made it through this checklist and you are still experiencing an audio problem, our first class customer service is available to assist you. Please have handy your account ID, phone number, name of your internet service provider (ISP), and model numbers for your Vonage device and any other devices in your network.

I had the same problem until I switched to EP Lines www.eplines.com It seems that ATT has been putting a lot of bugs in Vonage systems, you might want to try eplines they offer the first month free and less traffic going through the lines, translate to a better voice quality.

My account # is 102015295. I am being charged for messaging; I setup voice mail for #931-628-5360 but I am being charged. Please cancel the Voice mail on this #931-628-5360


This is a matter you should take up with your telephone
service provider ( at&t / Bell, Verizon, Sprint, Time Warner
Cable, Comcast, Vonage, or whomever ). Cancelling or
adding a purchased service is 'way outside the scope
of a "...can I help you ?..." internet forum.
Good luck!

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.

How should the D-link be setup to work with comcast and vonage? After I set vonage or internet do not work. I tried the comcast modem to d-link and d-link to vonage.


If you want to RECEIVE telephone-calls:

COMCAST ADSL/CABLE modem <---> VONAGE <---> wireless-router

Turn each piece off.
Turn on the COMCAST modem, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a "steady" pattern.
Turn on the VONAGE router, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a "steady" pattern.
Turn on the D-link router, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a "steady" pattern.
Restart the computer that is connected to the D-link router,
and you should have Internet access.

I can not send or recieve faxes. Ran fax test


Cox Cable is pretty much the same as comcast's and vonage's services. HP fax machines have had HUGE compatibility issues with those types of services, and may be that they did something to their service that caused your fax to stop working.....

Other than that call HP and see if they have any troubleshooting or Diagnostics that you can run, but I ran in to these problems with HP faxes all the time while installing comcast phone service, never knew WHY it didn't work, just that HP doesn't work on that type of service.....at least certain models...Also maybe call COX and see if they did anything recently that could cause it to stop working....

Internet connection problems


Sorry but that seems to be a pretty convoluted explanation. Here is how it should go.
Vonage unit connected to phone line(s) and cable modem. Linksys connected to Vonage box. Computers connected to Linksys.
Ethernet has a length limitation of about 300 feet before you need another switch (hub) or a repeater. Does your wire length exceed this?
