    Hi Johnny,

    no, it is impossible, at least for me. No one knows anything about this device, support doesn't even know, that it is sold - the -EU-version - and though they were very helpsom in Germany, not in US, they cannot figure out how to get it working.
    Looks pretty good in the specs, but what does that help!?

    Kind regards

    after two very incompetent answers from german and us support next to some interesting reading in the vonage support forum i cancelled my order today and went for the vigor 2900vg. even though its quite more expensive (almost double price!) it seems at least to be working.

    so long

    this device's frmware was not released by linksys because an agreement with vonage not to use embedded linux. vonage didnt want people to see here code.

    so dont buy it, oops too late for you

    I have this router, purchased through a local VOIP service. The provider clearly advised me that the firmware is unlocked, unlike the WRT54GP2-NA version sold by Vonage.
    The Vonage version has access blocked the voice configuration screens, so that users can't mess around with the settings, or cancel their service and use it with another VOIP service. That is fine if there is a subsidy in the price, if they are selling it at retail, that is a bad business practice.
    You won't get any info or support from Linksys on this router, since it is only sold to VOIP service providers and Linksys expects the provider to provide support.
