Hi all,

I am currently a xnet customer.

I was wondering if anyone has heard of/had experience with a device that has 802.11n and phone ports that would work with the VFX service?

I havent seen anything.

You can hang an N-capable AP or router off the back of any other unit though, just be aware of double-NAT etc.

Hemant, note that only the VFX approved hardware can be used for VFX.  The only ones that can be used are the ones on the VFX hardware page (except for one that is not yet on the hardware page).  You can not use any other hardware for VFX.  If you find a Linksys device that is not yet approved, then feel free to request that WxC consider approving it (however, they probably would already know about it).

You can never have enough Volvos!

Hi Niel,

Thanks for the speedy reply :).

It is because of the issues you mentioned that I was trying to keep it in one device.

I've had look and have been unable to find any Linksys Device that has everything in it. I'll try contacting them to find out if they plan to develop such a product.

Thanks again for your help.
