I don't have any problems.
I upgraded to 1.2b5 and my Vonage still works.
I use Comcast high-speed internet (3Mbit)
The ATA is the Motorola one provided by Vonage.
My configuration is as follows:
Monowall (Generic PC-HD version)
Motorola ATA (bridged mode!) - Telephone wall outlet - several phones
Name Address Description
Vonage 192.168.1.2 Vonage Phone
If Proto Ext. port range NAT IP Int. port range Description
WAN UDP 5061 Vonage 5061 Vonage
WAN UDP 10000 - 10011 Vonage 10000 - 10011 Vonage
Proto Source Port Destination Port Description
UDP * * Vonage 5061 NAT Vonage
UDP * * Vonage 10000 - 10011 NAT Vonage
WAN IP Address Assignment Static
IP Address 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 192.168.1.1
DNS Servers 192.168.1.1
DHCP Server/NAT Disabled
By setting the ATA between the firewall and the network switch, it never has
a problem with me hogging the bandwidth. I don't use traffic shaping and I
can have Vonage at full 90kbps (best quality) while downloading dozens of
files via bittorrent, eDonkey, etc... fully saturating my bandwidth... all
while still on the phone with perfect clairity.
The trick is to not use the Motorola's NAT. Set it up with a static IP and
then use proper NAT rules on monowall.
To still browse the Motorola box when configured this way, you need to have
your computer's TCP/IP set to normal 192.168.1.xxx IP, netmask and gateway
*AND* add a 192.168.102.xxx IP and netmask (no gateway though)... then that
computer can use a browser to 192.168.102.1 to configure the motorola box if
Please let me know if this helps anyone.

Just a note, upon installing this release, I found that my IP Telephone
(Vonage) would no longer work no matter what I did. I put an all pass
firewall rule, disabled the traffic shaper, nothing. Downgraded back to
1.2B3, phone working fine again. Everything else seemed to work fine
except the AH IPsec tunnel I had, which would establish, but not pass
any packets. The ESP based IPsec tunnels all worked fine. Again,
downgrading to 1.2B3 got that single AH based tunnel working fine again
without any configuration changes. Manuel, if you want/need anything
from me to solve these issues say the word.
