For some reason, vonage will spoof my IP to this:
[04:55:29] Local host: ec2-107-21-157-6.compute-1.amazonaws.com (18.104.22.168)
I have the firewall turned OFF on this thing. I don't need three firewalls on my computer (including router)
so, why would the vonage device spoof my IP?
Can I plug it in to the router vs Cable modem - Vonage - Router (as suggested)
This is the VDV23
You did not say explicitly, but I suspect that you are currently doing it this way:
Cable modem---Router---Vonage ATA---PC(s)
I would suggest doing it this way:
Cable modem---Router--+-Vonage ATA
And here is a graphic image of the above, just in case your browser's font choice screws up the ASCII formatting:
I also suggest that you do a factory reset on the Vonage adaptor before you change where you connect it (since I don't know how you currently have it configured).
I have never had a problem with using even multiple Vonage adapters when connected as shown above.--
We can never have enough of nature.
We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.
