I must state that you will be much happier with your vonage service if you
connect it directly to your cable modem.  Or you'll need to be sure that you
never download or upload while your on the vonage phone.  I know this from

You can goto (at least on my motorola) and configure any port
forwading you want.  Unless you have more than one public IP this is the
best way to maintain a low lag, high quality vonage signal.  If you
absolutely need to have is behind your m0n0wall, at least configure traffic
shaping.  But even with traffic shaping I noticed the phone would "ring" for
the caller 3 or 4 times before I heard the first ring if I was downloading
anything.  Plus it acted very funny for about 20 seconds after I picked up
(huge delays, drop outs, etc).
