Can anyone tell me if I am using a Vonage modem and that is connected to my belkin modem/router would the vonage modem sort of mess with my speed
I am sure your aware that vonage is internet phone service and use a modem sent by them so i can make calls over the net.
I saw an item on here regarding phones maybe lowering the speed of your line.,
Hope someone understands what I am trying to put across.
Are you saying that you think your existing phone set up is causing slow downloads?
I know some people have suggested DECT phones might cause interference, bu I have 2 and they don't cause any problems. Using a VOIP phone by itself will have no effect on ur speed, I think you need to work out if you are getting interference on your line 1st. You do this by plugging the router directly into the test socket behind the face plate of your BT master socket. If you get better sync and lower SNR/margin reported by your router, then this shows interference coming from the rest of the phone circuits in the house. The best way to cure this is probably through something called a NTE5 adsl faceplate.
www.kitz.co.uk has lots of good advice on this.
