Vonage Phone,Wifi, Traveling, with What Router?

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by Michael M. Cohen, Oct 31, 2004.

  1. Here's the situation: I now have a Vonage phone account, using the recently
    introduced Linksys PAP2 adapter. Works like a charm. Those of you with
    broadband ought to check out www.vonage.com (I don't work for them). To use
    the device you need a router with at least one spare port.

    I travel a lot and broadband access is pretty common in hotel rooms now.
    I'd like to bring my wireless laptop along with me as well as a small phone
    along with the Linksys PAP2 (this will allow me to get and make phone calls
    whenever I travel...pretty neat.)

    I need a traveling router (small) that has an AP and also has a spare open
    ethernet port on it...

    Anyone know and recommend such a device? Remember small is good.
    Netgear just released a new traveling router; however no ethernet port. I
    also looked at Apple's AirPort Express (also small)...but no spare ethernet
    port either...but it does a built-in USB printserver.

    Any recommendations?

    What you really need is Wifi / VoiP phone like Zyxel 2000W,
    it isn't cheap though !

    How about the Wiflyer (www.wiflyer.com)?

  4. That's the only one I've been able to find with this feature set (plus
    it has dialup). They've just started {taking orders for,shipping?}
    the WiFlyer, and I'm considering it. Did they just drop the price? I
    seem to remembering taking it off my list, as it was something like
    $250, but (now?) it's only $150. Probably $50 more than a travel
    router and a travel AP, but pretty reasonable...

    After leaving my previous travel AP with a client, I've been looking
    for a replacement. Anything else out there (yet) in this market
