Vonage Router Login - Default Passwords

Vonage is an Internet service provider or ISP for short, that provides residential and business Internet and telecommunication services. After activating your Vonage account and setting up your details, you will need to go ahead and set-up your Vonage Box. To start communicating you will need to connect your broadband Internet and home phone line to the Vonage router. After that, you will be free to make calls without any hassle. Here you have step by step instructions on how to achieve that.

How to login to your Vonage router

  1. Connect your Vonage Box to your Internet connection via a LAN cable. One should be supplied with the box itself. Depending on your residence and length of cable, you might have to position the Vonage box closer or further away from the Ethernet port. Connect the cable to the blue port of the box.
  2. Take out the power cord from your Vonage Box package. Connect it first to the power outlet and then to the Vonage box orange port. Make sure to check the voltage requirements on the adapter so as not to fry your device. If the voltage is too low there won’t be enough power to keep the Vonage box functioning properly. If there is too much power the box might overheat or even short-circuit.
  3. Connect your phone connection to the Vonage Box via the telephone cord. One should be provided with the initial package. Make sure you plug in the cord in the green port market with the number 1.

Vonage Box Advanced Options

Changing settings and configurations to your Vonage box are not necessary as the device is configured to work straight from the box. If you are a more advanced user, however, you can configure some options via the web-based user interface by following these instructions.
  1. Open an Internet browser. We recommend Chrome as it seems to give the least amounts of errors. Mozilla and Internet Explorer sometimes block Vonage box ports. Make sure you are browsing on the computer that is directly connected to the Vonage box telephone adapter.
  2. Enter the IP or type in V-Configure in the address bar.
  3. Enter your username and password which by default are set to router for both.
  4. Click Go or Enter and choose the category that you want. There will generally be three of them: Basic Setup, Advanced Setup, and Help. Basic Setup allows you to set your Internet connection type, configure your LAN (Local Area Network), change the default password to something other than a router, and save or import already existing configurations from another Vonage Box. Advanced Setup allows you to set up port options and filters, parental controls and network options, event logs and even reset the device to factory settings which will erase all the changes you might have made.

How to apply Basic Settings

  1. Log in to the web interface for the Vonage Box using your browser of choice. We recommend Chrome.
  2. Select the Basic Setup option and choose one of the following options:
Specify the Internet connection type as either DHCP by default, Static IP, or PPPoE. - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol or DHCP is set up as the default connection type. It is the standard for most ISPs and phone companies. By using DHCP, a dynamic IP Address is assigned to your device and no further input is required by you. - Static IP Address is used by as an elect group of cable companies so it is pretty rare. A static IP is assigned to your device and you must update this setting to provide the IP address, subnet mask, DNS address, and default gateway. - PPPoE stands for Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet and is used by all DSL modems that don’t have a built-in router. PPPoE is also used by DSL providers who require you to input your username and password to sign in to your DSL connection.
  1. Follow the instructions to complete the process.
How to apply Advanced Settings
