I was just wondering if anybody can give me some advice.


I currently have Slingshot UFB. My setup is ONT - Mikrotik 260GS RouterBoard(for VLAN10 Tagging) - Netgear Nighthawk R8500, I have just signed up for Slingshots Naked Broadband service for the intention of using Slingshots GoTalk service as my phone line is still connected but I cant use it as I am using my Netgear Router and not their supplied NF4V. When I talked to the Slingshot operator he confirmed with me that once I have naked broadband on, and I am using the GoTalk service I can plug a ATA Adapter into a 3rd party router and use my old landline phone. Question is am I better off buying a VOIP phone or a ATA Adapter, and does the VOIP phone plug straight into the ONT or Netgear Router. Likewise does the ATA Adapter plug into the ONT or router. Also if I have to plug these devices into the router does the VLAN10 Tagging done in the   Mikrotik 260GS effect the VOIP packets. Thanks for any suggestions or advice anybody can give.

yitz: I thought GoTalk was a smartphone app?




I was told by the operator that if you use the Gotalk service this diverts landline calls to your mobile device and at the same time if you have a voip device plugged in thru your naked broadband connection it will also recieve/transmit landline calls. Hope I was'nt told fibs. Mind you I have only signed up for the Naked service so far.
