Hi Folks,

I'm new here to Geekzone and NZ for that matter as I've just moved here from Ireland.
I just bought a new modem/VOIP router (Hitachi AH4051) in order to set up my Fusion account.
I realise that Xnet only provide support for Linksys devices but I would like to configure my modem to work with Xnet's VOIP service.
Considering they use a common protocol would it not be possble to configure my device to operate on Xnet's network?

I really would like to try and avoid buying a seperate VOIP adapter as I don't need the extra expense right now.

I also do not want to use a softphone alternative just Xnet's service.

I find it unusual to see that Xnet have an exclusive tie-in with Linksys as this seems to fly in the face of healthy competition. Considering they have been offering the VOIP sevice for a number of years I would expect support for a wide range of devices to be implemented.

Thanks for taking the time to read this folks, I will appreciate any and all help I can get with the matter.

Cheers, I look forward to hearing from you

Welcome to Geekzone.

WxC do not officially support any other devices than those listed on their website for their VFX or DVX services.

It's not an exclusive tie in with Linksys - there are plenty of IP phones and PBX's fully supported but Linksys are the only supported ATA at present, probably in part because they have one of the best auto provisioning systems.

If you have a non approved device your only option is probably to go with somebody like 2talk.
