Drop your computer from the network (pull the network plug) when the
problem starts. If the problem continues then the problem is off-net
from the local network and no amount of QoS will help.
If pulling your computer off the network helps then check it for
viruses, spy-ware, etc. We've had a few Soho clients that went from
perfect voice to horrible cell-phone sounding conversations after they
contracted some nasty viruses.
If you don't think it's a Vonage problem you can always do a traceroute
to their CA and then ping various points along that route to see where
problems begin are occurring. I just traced down a Covad problem for a
client last week doing something similar.
