Hi all..

If off thanks 4 lookn.. I just need alittle help working out my options for next year.
Im moving into a new flat with 5 PC+ and would like to have Xnet VFX.

My internet type is :  Wireless - From local WIC ISP.
I need 1 VOIP line and will prob just use Analog  phone.

I also need control over  my flats bandwidth eg Traffic Shaping

We have a 1 to 3mb/1mb connection

I have got a high gain Ariel witch can be used for wireless..

What i have now.. 
A USB High gain adapter connected to P3 500 running XP
and run traffic shaping software off that + buy a linksys PAP2T
( Connection unstable because USB adapter stops working after 3+ hours idle.

All depends how much you want to spend.

I would go for a RouterBoard 153, a miniPCI Wireless Card running MikroTik... it will do everything you want, plus more!
