thanks for that. That sound like the best way to go in the future once I get an Amplifi router. Is there any trick to set up the fritzbox so it's just used for voip?

Hi not got one in front of me to say but there may be a option to associate the ata with the lan interface, and just connect it to the new lan, alternatively if it allows double nat on the ata, and only uses outbound connections for sip and rtp, then connecting the wan to the lan and use DHCP should work, check with @michaelmurfy

@gcorgnet: The below settings worked for me having the Fritz as just another client on the LAN with the VoIP still working. No need for double NAT or anything like that. Obviously disable the DHCP server on the Fritz. You can then either give the Fritz a static IP or tell it to obtain it's address from your DHCP server (which presumably will be your Amplifi Router).

 

Then just connect LAN1 from the Fritz to your network switch (in your case this probably means one of the LAN ports on the Amplifi router).

Sightly OT

 

yes I know I am a total Apple nut case - but

 

I wish Apple would bring out a total home networking system: router/modem, mesh, VPN, iCloud, etc. A total Apple home WiFi/Bluetooth eco system with siri voice control. Plus having Apple approved 3rd party devices (Philips Hue etc) being able to hook into via Apple SDK's.

 

Interesting article here: Apple exited the home Wi-Fi market at the wrong time

 

On a side note, Apple should buy out one of the big cyber security companies, Symantec etc. I am surprised that they have not already what with their fanaticism towards privacy & security.

Apple moved focus towards corporate deployments and signed agreements with Cisco and HPE (Aruba) to complement their existing agreements with companies like Aerohive. 

 

Why:

 

  • Sell a couple of low cost devices to consumers when you can sell hundreds of higher price corporate devices?  Companies like Google want to dominate the consumer market as their business model focuses on selling your usage information.  For anybody who is interested in how much Google knows about you have a look at How to find out what Google knows about you and limit the data it collects.
  • Invest huge amounts of money to try and compete with companies who are wireless specialists?
