Anybody know about availability of a Wi-Fi ATA?

We are trying to convert our small office to VoIP.
We don't use any wired Ethernet, only wireless/DSL gateway.
Would like to connect our desktop analog telephones
via a wireless to the DSL gateway.

Thanks in advance.

Christopher

WiSIP Phone might do the trick.

[This is a FORWARDED MESSAGE from comp.dcom.telecom]
In article <telecom24.7.1@telecom-digest.org> Lisa Minter wrote:

LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Vonage, the U.S. pioneer of low-cost phone
service over Internet broadband connections, on Tuesday said it was
working with a phone maker to offer a "Wi-Fi" handset for subscribers
to use at home or around town.

The Edison, New Jersey-based company said it had partnered with
UTStarcom, a diversified maker of telecommunications equipment based
in Alameda, California, to introduce a portable Wi-Fi handset in the
spring or summer.

In a series of announcements timed ahead of the Consumer Electronics
Show conference here this week, Vonage unveiled plans for the wireless
phone, a separate cordless model, and to make these phones available
broadly through retailers.

The new Wi-Fi handset, to be known as the F-1000, would be designed to
work with Vonage phone service out of the box for U.S. subscribers.
The phones would take advantage of local radio airwaves on the most
mainstream of Wi-Fi standards -- the so-called "B" standard.

The Wi-Fi handset can act as a replacement to traditional fixed-line
phones that a subscriber might have around the house. It can also work
when it is within range of any nearby Wi-Fi hotspot out of the house,
according to UTStarcom.

Separately, Vonage said it had agreed to a partnership with phone
maker VTech (0303.HK), one of North America's largest suppliers of
conventional phones, to create a cordless phone system that runs on
Vonage's broadband service.

The product is based on Texas Instruments Inc.'s VoIP chipset, and
will be available at more than 8,000 U.S. retail locations during the
spring/summer of 2005. The phone plugs directly into a customer's
broadband Internet connection.

Don't think there are any, but you can get wifi VoIP phones like Zyxel
2000W, Sipura (and Cisco -very expensive).
You can take them with you and use anywhere you can connect via wifi.

You should be able to use any phone you want

Last thing you would want is to be stuck to muilti monopoly Vontage

If your connected wirelessly you have 3 options.. the one your pursuing
(wiFi phone) or you could get a access point router that has 4 ports
just plug in your stuff.. or

If you are connected with some form of wifi to your computer and you
have a network jack free (example you are using your internet through
usb) you could use the windows networking built into XP pro (dunno
about home) and buy a crossover cable and plug in your phone to that.

It would just switch though that.

i got a router hooked up with a regular cable to my computer that
gets its internet from a usb wireless adabtor. and I can hook othere
devices into it.. I set my computer as the gate way.

If you are not running xp pro and have something eles you could also run
sygate or some proxy gateway software.

and if you get your net (internet0 from a modem that converts it to
ethernet and that is what you plug into your computer you might want to
note there are a good lot of ip phones that have a basic simple switch
built right into them. that allow you to plug your internet into your
phone and then your computer into the phone and all be online.

i know the cheep grandstreams, snom phones (linux they rock) and plenty
of othere ip phones have this feature.

And of course what about a usb phone..
I yet to find one for linux .. some please make one soon.. windows is
just wrong..

If you must have a WIFI ATA (for whatever reason) then grab a simple
wireless bridge.
Something like the linksys WET11 should do fine.
