just got my hands on a "Wireless VOIP Residential Gateway". it looks like the wireless router i've got, only difference i can tell is i can connect my normal home phone to the gateway. what about the voip then? it didn't come with a manual, so i'm a bit lost... can any geek help please?
Hi, What make and model are you talking about? Most manuals can be downloaded from the net - have a look - if you don't come right let me know and i will see what i can get my hands on. Might help a bit more if you have the manual
The benefit is you will have a phone service over VoIP rather than paying your current provider, assuming your device is unlocked and allows editing of the SIP settings.
If you want to get rid of your Telecom line you'll have to move to a naked ADSL plan (ie broadband line with no phone) which could well mean changing ISP if you're with one now that doesn't offer naked ADSL plans.
