As subject states, I have internet access to my house that is via a radio link so I dont have access to the DSL modem ports. I was going to use a SPA122 to connect my home phone but not sure if I can actually do this?

Is this possible?

Is it actually a "radio link", or just a long-range WLAN connection?  If the latter, then with a wireless bridge you can connect any device (including the SPA122) that uses an ethernet port.

This is what you'd need: http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=NETTPL0701&name=TP-Link-TL-WA701ND-150M-Wireless-Lite-N-Access-Poi

If it was a true radio link, you'd have a receiving radio, which would be connected to a router, to which you can connect the SPA122

As Phil mentioned, it will be no problem VoIP over a radio link. But if you just have long range wireless you need a wireless station to get ethernet to the SPA.

Thanks guys, its a bridge so effectively a wireless ethernet cable (Ubiquiti radios into my office LAN). At the house end the Ubiquiti just connects into the wifi router.

In that case, just connect the SPA into your wifi router - job done!

Great, and just the LAN side of the SPA rather than the WAN side I assume?

No you'll want to connect the Blue "Internet" port of the ATA to your wifi router.

To configure the ATA though, you may need to connect your PC/laptop to the Yellow Ethernet port (usually you'll just do this temporarily to configure it).
