hey Irv, not sure i follow ...
the magicjack plus doesnt require a computer connection / usb connection, in case thats what youre referring to. this version, the "magicjack plus" can work either hooked to your computer or hooked up directly to modem or router.
i ruled out the router cause or rather ruled it the cause of the problems cause of all the troubleshooting that ive done on my PLUS everything you did for me the other day still didnt fix all the issues. since you got a chance to tinker with i no longer experienced the error 23 i originally told you about but rather could not stay connected to a call for longer than a few seconds (literally). along with the fact that i was not receiving incoming calls most of the time.
took it to my job, hooked up to a similar router and didnt have any problems > copied down a few settings from there and set those settings in my own router and still nothing. > heres when i decided the router just wasnt playing nice with MJ ... ***plugged the MJ+ directly to the modem and didnt have NOT ONE problem at all. no calls dropped and kept on receiving incoming calls. leads me to only believe that this router is simply being problematic.
im okay with the change, even with spending the money simply because of the added features, stability, and performance of a newer router but more so because of the savings from the transition to this service.
im off now to pick up the RT-N56U. should be all set up by the end of the night since ive got a few errands to run and all. will definitely post back tomorrow at some point to let you all know how it goes.
let me know if i answered your question as to why im looking at replacing the router
