I have one of the Cisco ATA's also, VOnage does not use them anymore

Probably shaping/rate limiting traffic other than vonage so your
internet pipe doesn't get saturated will have a more positive effect
than anything else.

Opening ports is a bit difficult, as the Vonage service initiates calls
on a few ports, but actual calls bounce around ports a lot.

"Each router manufacturer has a different process for Port Forwarding
(also called Port Opening), but in each case, you must always specify
two port ranges to be opened: 
      * 5060 ? 5061 (UDP) 
      * 10000 ? 20000 (UDP)"
