My job requires me to contact clients via a company provided internet phone. It's an Ayava phone.
In order to use it, I must plug it into my router. My question is this, is there a way to use this phone with an internet connection other than a hardwired DSL or cable connection?
I'm looking to do some traveling and I want to be able to use my phone in my RV with a wireless internet connection.
Is it possible?
I've heard that there is a modem you can plug this type of phone into and it will work but yet I've not be able to find anything.

Since Ayaya is one of the main VoIP phones I am going to bet that is what it is. Hard to say how exactly they are connecting some of the phones have VPN capabilities built in.

You "should" be able to use any internet you have. You just must provide a ethernet to the phone. What you need is a client-bridge device. Most times the simple versions of these devices are sold as gaming adapters but many "wireless extenders" would also work. What you are doing is putting a wireless card into the phone in a similar way you do to game consoles and tv that do not have built in wireless. Of course you still need a internet connection to connect to and some of the hotel type ones where you must agree to some screen before you have access will not work since the phone can not show you the screen so you can click agree.

It sounds like you need an LTE mobile hot spot. Many only provide WiFi, so look around to find one that has a Ethernet jack too or get the company to replace with phone with one that is WiFi capable. Since it is for business use, potentially when traveling, I'd go with Verizon because they have the widest coverage in the U. S.
