Wireless WiFi ATA

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Christopher Flores, Jan 11, 2005.

  1. Folks,

    Are there WiFi ATA adapters out there?

    We have an entirely WiFi office - no wired Ethernet.
    Would like to hookup our desktop analog telephones
    to a VoIP service provider.

    Our other alternative would be to use a USB ATA
    with the laptop providing the WiFi connectivity but
    this needs driver support on the laptop. Any ATA product
    recommendations in this area?

    Thanks. I made this post before but did not see it in the
    newsgroup. My apologies if you had responded before.

    Christopher, do you expect VoIP to work like WiFi? Are
    you familiar with QoS issues? It sounds to me like you
    and a lot of others may be leaping in without looking. - RM

    I did reply to your post on 6th January:
    "Don't think there are any, but you can get wifi VoIP phones like Zyxel
    2000W, Sipura (and Cisco -very expensive).
    You can take them with you and use anywhere you can connect via wifi."

    To RM:
    My VoIP works just fine over wifi, but that's in domestic situation.
    There are wifi routers with QoS, like Draytek Vigor 2600G or 2600VG,
    which are presumably designed to deal with an office VoIP scenario.

    what is the "QoS" and which is the difference for the voip use of a Netgear
    and this new Draytek router?
    with this router can I have a better quality of voip?

    It stands for 'Quality of Service', but means that VoIP traffic gets
    preference over data.

    It should prevent the gaps in sound while you downloading data.
    The 2600G has been on the market just over a year, the 2500V (one VoIP port)
    and 2600GV (with two VoIP ports) are fairly new.
    Draytek's are designed for office use, have all the facilities, very robust,
    but also more expensive.

    BTW I had bad experience with Netgear kit and their non existent support,
    won't touch them with a barge pole.

    A Sipura SPA-2000 plus a Linksys WRT54G(S) comes close. Sure,
    there are some extra wires but it works.

    I used some nodes like that for a simple experiment.

    Is the wifi FXO ATA ADSL market still alive?!

    hi there

    I hope this thread is not too old to revive, but the question is still relevant...

    ...I'm new to VOIP and am looking for a wifi FXO ATA ADSL router. I've googled a lot and got the impression that a lot of major producers have gone out of the market, as I keep finding references to lots of wifi VOIP gateways that are no longer produced.

    Draytek seem to be still in business and have good reviews, but a Vigor 2710VN is 140£ here in the UK.

    Then I found LevelOne NetCon WBR-3470B can still be bought for 75£ (albeit end-of-stock), but it is no longer on the Level1 website (dead product, I guess).

    Has the whole market become some sort of survivor niche? Could anyone point me toward anything cheaper?

    Thanks in advance!
