Product Description

Product Description

The Linksys PAP2 Phone Adapterallows you toturn your cable or DSL Internet connection into another phone line. Its simple, just plug the PAP2adapter into your home Router or Gateway, and use the two standard telephone jacks to connect your existing phones or fax machines. Each phone jack operates independently, with separate phone service and phone numbers -- like having two phone lines. With an appropriate Internet telephone service provider, you'll get clear telephone reception and reliable fax connections, even while using the Internet at the same time for normal data operations.

With Vonage, you can make calls through the Internet, potentially save on long-distance charges, and access a rich assortment of call features. Plans start as low as $14.99 per month, and the Premium Unlimited plan offers unlimited calling to the U.S. and Canada for only $24.99 per month. And it's easy to use: For making and receiving calls, Vonage works just like a traditional phone service; no special access codes or account numbers are required.

Easy Hardware Setup

All Vonage plans let you enjoy the call features you've become accustomed to—call waiting, caller ID, voicemail, call forwarding, three-way calling, call return, repeat dialing, and reliable long distance—plus other features that may be new to you. For example, you can receive your voicemail as an email attachment, and you'll have a phone number that travels with you. Visit http://www.vonage.com/amazon to see which plan is best suited to your lifestyle and budget. The low monthly rates are quite reasonably priced, in our opinion, and with them you may save considerably compared to traditional phone service. International calls are available for additional low fees, with one economical exception: calls from the U.S. to Canada are treated like domestic long distance calls, rather than international. Vonage also supports short-form emergency 911 services, where available. (Dialing 911 requires activation and operates differently than traditional 911. See Vonage's website for details.)

This Vonage Internet Phone Service Starter Kit is quick and easy to install in your home or business. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection (cable or DSL modem) and a touchtone phone. Setup is simple: Just connect one end of the included Vonage-certified Linksys PAP2 phone adapter to your Ethernet router or gateway and the other end to your telephone. Then sign up for Vonage phone service. An extra port on the adapter allows you to attach an additional phone or fax machine. You'll have instant access to both phone lines, each with a separate number, and you can even assign them different area codes (subject to availability). You can still surf the web while talking on the phone or receiving faxes. The phone adapter includes a generous three-year warranty from the manufacturer.

The sound quality is good.

After my first 2 plus hour experience with the tech support department, I decided to go back to Comcast phone service.

As for Vonage phone service, it drops calls constantly.

I am going to strictly comment on the Linksys PAP2. A lot of the reviews on here have been for the Vonage service. The Linksys PAP2 is NOT THE Vonage service, but one of many adapters you can use.

I am extreamly satisfied with my Linksys PAP2. It is small, light weight, and perfect for those who need to travel. The voice quality is excellent and people say I do not sound like I am talking over VOIP. There is no line noise, static, popping, etc.

I am giving this product 4 stars. Why? Because there is only ONE ethernet port. If you have a router, just connect the PAP2 to one of your available ethernet ports and you are good to go. If you do not have a router, consider getting another Vonage phone adapter with built in 4-port router. There are several.

We have had our Linksys PAP2 Vonage phone adapter for over a year and never have had a problem with it. Its too bad people are reviewing Vonage's "service" vs Linksys' "product" in these reviews. I've never done anything but plug the adapter in and it works like a charm! Good job Linksys!

I've been wanting to switch from traditional phone service (Verizon) to VoIP (Vonage) for a while, and I jumped in with the release of the Linksys products.

Here's what I really, really like about the Vonage service: Setup is a breeze, and PAP2 is diminutive, so if you are travelling to a location with broadband service, you can take the box with you to make/receive calls. In addition, the Vonage service is full of features that are either not available from the local telco, or would cost a small fortune every month.

As much as I like the service, it does have drawbacks and limitations that you should be aware of:

* Power or Broadband outages - If you lose power, or your broadband service is unavailable, you will not have phone service. Even though Vonage can ring your cell phone if this were to occur, this fallback can take up to 4 hours (per the Vonage website).

* 911 Service - Unlike most VoIP services, Vonage *does* offer 911 service. However, you must register, and when/if you dial 911, your call is routed to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) in your area, and unlike traditional 911, the PSAP will note have access your location/address.

* Tivo & Modems - Although you most likely will never use a modem when you have broadband access, if you have a Tivo that only has a modem, you may have problems getting the Tivo to make its Daily Call. This is the major issue I have with Vonage. I tried all the "tricks," and even bought a DSL filter, with no luck. I like my Tivo more than Vonage, so I'll be cancelling Vonage and going back to my local telco.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Larry D. Madill Jr. on November 4, 2006
I already had a WiFi router and the combo, co-branded Linksys / Vonage routers have had some awful reviews. I've had this for about eight months and it works fine. Simple, plug-in set up, plays well with my router and network. Never given me any problems of significance; I had to reset it once after a power outage, that's the worse thing.

My only real complaint is the blue LED lights on the front are REALLY REALLY BRIGHT. You definitely want to put it somewhere where you don't sleep, or conceal it, or, as I did, put some black gaf tape over the lights.

Great device for someone looking something simple and straight forward.

In my household, we've had Vonage for nearly six months and we couldn't be happier. The sound is so clear that our friends constantly comment that our voices sound like we're standing right next to them. In addition, the complete control Vonage gives you over their service via the website is a dream. All the information you need is right there (e.g., billing, voicemail, account, etc.). And, we love being able to check our voicemail online. I even have the service set up to send me an e-mail when a new voicemail has arrived.

My only word of warning: The service will only be as good as the system it's piggybacking onto. It sounds like many of the negative reviews are having troubles that likely related to the speed and quality of their broadband service or poor networks setups. If you have great Internet service and a stable network, you will have great Vonage service.

Verified Purchase
If you have an existing broadband connection with a router and/or firewall, then this product may be the easiest way to go to use your phone over your broadband connection. It should take you less than 10 minutes to get this all hooked up and working. The PAP2 connect to your existing phone and your existing network. A few changes will have to be done on your router/firewall for this to work, but all the instructions for doing this are easily available at the Vonage.com homepage.

There is a degree of technical skills and understanding required to make this work. However, if you are looking for VoIP phones, you probably already know enough to set this up.

The bandwidth requirement for using this service is not bad at all. The default setting is 90Kbps, and that should not be an issue for most people with broadband connections. However, you can tune this down if it becomes an issue, but sound quality may degrade when doing this.

The most basic service with Vonage is now $14.99/month with 500 free minutes (including Canada, but excludes international calls), which is a great deal unless you are constantly on the phone. All the services comes with Voicemail, Caller ID and something called "Network Availability Number". The later allows you to set a phone number (i.e. for your cell phone) that calls will be forwarded to in the event that your broadband connection goes down.
