Just wondering if anyone has had much or any luck with 3rd party ATA's or ADSL routers with ATA built in or even if you can use them or not. I see it lists all the linksys certified hardware on the xnet site but I can't find any comment saying you can't use certified hardware.

I am planning on signing up very soon and am checking out what hardware I have to get. I have found a few different router combos and ATA's about but not sure if its worth shelling out for them incase they don't go. I see a few Grandstream boxes on Trademe tagged with a worldexchange keyword for only $56 which would work out cheap as I already have a basic adsl router.

Any ideas?

The only devices that can be used with the VFX service are those that are approved and listed on the site. You can't connect any non approved devices to the network.

If you are running Asterisk however then you could configure any ATA you like to your Asterisk box but you can't connect them directly to VFX.

Yeah I figured that would be the case.

Will just shell out for the Linksys AG310 then. I asked the guy on Trademe if it will work with xnet, will be interesting to see if he says it will or not.

I've bought an AG310, works really well.  Nice product with good features.

You can never have enough Volvos!
