    I currently have the RT31P2 Vonage router. I bought another line from Vonage and they sent me the RTP300. I want to keep the most powerful one. One would assume the newer RTP300, but given that some of the newer Linksys routers have less memory than their predecessors, I wanted to make sure. Which one is the better router?

    I don't have neither these two devices, except WRTP54G devices. It appears the firmware source codes for RTP/WRTP54G are the same, except the RTP300 doesn't support WiFi. I know the fact that a WRTP54G comes with a 4/16MB flash/RAM (I believe an RTP300 also does come with a 4/16MB flash RAM).

    Currently, there has been some work in progress to support a WRTP54G WiFi router through an open source firmware (don't know if this work will include an RTP300). As with an RT31P2, that doesn't seem to be the case. So, unless you are up to something, like running your RTP300 with an open source code firmware (which may invalidate your Vonage services), you probably won't see any difference in the performance between an RT31P2 or RTP300. FYI, there is an old saying that goes like this If it ain't broken, don't fix it.
