I don't write reviews on products very often. I'm more of a passive observer when it comes to on-line products. But my experience from this device has led me to (or should I say forced me to) write this review!!! I've been a network engineer for 5 years and I've also been a long time owner of the Linksys BEF11WS4 which proved to be a very worthwhile investment. I also setup Vonage service for my mom's home and for well over a year been totally satisfied. So when I saw this product, I thought to myself obviously why not get this as it combines the two very satisfying experience I've had. And so the nightmare begins.

I've had problems from wireless dropouts to the router freezing to the phone port not working. I have no idea who made this but it sure doesn't seem like it has the Linksys quality that I've been used to. Thats where I learned that if you want support for this hardware you have to call Vonage, not Linksys. I don't know how Linksys/Cisco got their name on this thing but it doesn't seem like it is from them. Neither is the quality on par with Linksys nor is the support provided by them. I've tried upgrading the firmware (this is sometimes done for you automatically by Vonage), I've upgraded the driver on my laptop's wireless card, tried dozens of different configurations through the web interface. NOTHING!!! Still get wireless dropouts, router freezes, and headaches to top it off.

If you are bent on buying this device please do some research on the web about it. You will find a plethora of information on it from a few websites and you will see my frustration in many others. I kept the router as it seems like Vonage is pushing it very hard from a marketing standpoint so maybe a real fix will be coming soon.

This review isn't intended to forge new ground so much as it is intended to reinforce other reviews.

I too am a big fan of Linksys products in general, and the WRT54G (NOT the WRTP54G) in particular (please note that I mention both the WRT54G and the WRTP54G below - they are very different products). However, I am extremely disappointed in the WRTP54G/Vonage combination. Why?

(1) The phone portion of the router - due to issues with Vonage, the router, the router's firmware (which was rev'd to the latest release), or some combination of the three - is very problematic. My phone frequently (essentially every day) would stop working (no dial tone and/or others cannot hear my voice and/or I cannot hear them), and the best solution I've come up with is to install a timer on the outlet to reboot the router every night. This solved most of the problems, but not all of them - and it's insane to need to reboot the thing daily to get it to work.

(2) The router software isn't up to par with the latest WRT54G releases, and it doesn't seem to work consistently in terms of port forwarding. As a result (and due to (3) below), I'm using my WRT54G (my good Linksys product) as the router and the WRTP54G as just a network device to attach to the phone line.

(3) I bought the WRTP54G and seemed to get decent initial results with Vonage, but, once my home phone number was switched (i.e., my local phone company service was disconnected) and I started using it full time, people I called could not - ever - hear me.

Let me preface the discussion with the fact that I was a network administrator for about 8 years and continuing experience with networking products since transitioning to application development.

The following are my experiences with attempting to get the Linksys WRTP54G router to function. I originally purchased it at Best Buy because the rebate program seemed to make it almost a no brainer with the rebates totalling more than the cost of the device.

After opening the box:

I read the agreement. An item to note is the nearly $40 cancelation fee that is charged by Vonage unless you send the router back to Vonage.

I read the rebate requirements, which state A WIRELESS router must be sent in, whereas Best Buy stated that any router could be sent in.

I read the manual cover to cover before attempting anything.

I used the installation software to configure the router, however, the internet could never be reached at the end of the configuration process when using the configuration software.

After a lot of trial and error attempting to manually configure the router using the built in administrative web pages, I realized that I could not use the administrative pages unless the router was disconnected from the internet. Every time I connected the WAN/Internet port, I would receive an "internal communication error" message when trying to access the administrative pages. This occurred with both a wired and wireless client. I also disabled all firewalls to eliminate all potential points of conflict. Once I got that error on the router, I would have to restart the router to get it to work with the internet again.
