I have not used Vonage, but doesn't it simply connect to your existing network and phones? I was not aware that your computer was involved with it in any way, I was under the impression it was a stand-alone unit.

This device has an Ethernet interface which you connect to your cable or DSL modem. Plug in your analog phone and you're in business for VOIP only. Assuming you still want broadband access for your PC connect the PC's Ethernet port to one of those on the back of the VT2442 and the connection is shared. With the correct software you can also add a microphone to your PC and use it like a speaker phone as well.
