Using Vonage to connect to a Dialup ISP
Posted on 2006-05-27
I'm using my new Vonage service to connect to a dialup ISP I have. I plug a phone cord in my laptop modem port, then the other end of the phone cord into my Vonage adapter and dial the ISP over my Vonage line. It works, but I experience a couple of problems:
- it will disconnect all by itself fairly often.
- data transfer will "pause" once in a while. For like 20 or 30 seconds or so, then it will continue normally.
...Vonage customer support itself wasn't much help - they say their service wasn't meant to be used in this way and is not supported. Any thoughts anyone?
