Pros cheaper, free shipping
Cons less name recognition?
Summary Seems the commenters here are miffed wqith vonage, so I'll offer you my experience. I bought from Iconnecthere, and they sell the same product but perhaps cheaper. They give it to you free, they ship it to you free and they give you a month of service free.
I have had few problems with quality, with only a couple of bad connections in a few months. I didn't use their customer service, but haven't needed to.
Hope that helps.
Pros Nothing at all - how would I know if it doesn't work?
Cons Does not work
Summary Buyer beware. This equipment does not work properly. I bought a Linksys WAG160N so I could connect a new laptop by wireless. Needing a VoIP phone adapter to work with the modem I called Linksys to ask what I should do. They recommended a Linksys PAP2T adapter which I also bought. 1. The wireless internet connection fails frequently and constantly needs rebooting. I might just as well sit at the wired desktop. 2. The VoIP adapter normally does not work. Linksys tell me there is a known problem between the PAP2T and the WAG160N. It's sad that they didn't tell me this when I asked what to buy. 3. The WAG160N falls over every time I launch my P2P torrent program. Within two minutes the internet fails followed by the DSL line. It has never worked properly. Apparently this is also a known issue with this equipment. I have spent many hours with Linksys help trying to fix these issues, including firmware upgrades and much stuffing around. I have reached the point where I simply want my money back so I can buy other equipment that works.
Pros Small and lightweight
Cons Too Bright "ON" lights
Summary Bought this at BB and received a $25 gc plus the 59.99 money back from vonage. I was up and running in less than an hour. I've had this and vonage for 3 weeks. NO PROBLEMS! The ONLY complaint I have is that the lights are SUPER bright.
Pros cheaper, more options, clear call quality, easy to set up, got credit applied to my account because it has taken longer than 20 business days to transfer my land line, got rebates on PAP2 so that adaptor was free.
Cons LNP has not happened yet
Pros Potential for cheaper phone calls. More features available than with landline (pots) service.
Cons WARNING: DO NOT sign up with VONAGE if you intend to keep your current phone number. I submitted LOA by fax on the same day that I signed up, as they promise that you can keep your current phone number. After 2 1/4 Months, I called Asst Customer Servic
