using voip over a home wireless network

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Josh Fruhlinger, Jan 14, 2004.

  1. Greetings to the newsgroup-

    My girlfriend's father is going to be staying with us and working from
    our home for the next week or so, and he's bringing his Vonage phone. I
    have a wireless (802.11g wi-fi) network set up in the house, and I'd
    like to hook him into that rather than run cables all through the house.
    Ideally, I'd like to hook him up as shown in the diagram here (from
    Vonage's site):

    The only difference would be that the connection between the router and
    the digital phone adapter would be achieved by using a wireless bridge
    (which would have an ethernet port that the Vonage phone adapter could
    plug into). From looking over all the various documentation, I know
    this should work in theory; however, I'm not sure if the quality of the
    wireless connection would be good enough to really hold phone
    conversations over. Has anyone tried anything like this, and if so,
    what were your results?

    Thanks in advance,
    Josh

    Works for me. If you have a lot of interference, then there could be
    trouble, but under decent conditions it seems to be fine.
