Hi folks. I have a networking question that's beyond my expertise. I'm moving in a couple of weeks and I cannot get a traditional land line in the new house -- I'm stuck with cable or cellular. That's not horrible but the cable router is on the second floor and my office is on the first floor. The house was not built with any Cat 5/6 preinstalled.

I suppose I could just plug in a regular cordless base station into the router and use a handset in the office, but I'm also wondering if a VOIP phone would make sense. Problem, of course, is connecting the phone to the cable network.

I'm assuming I could do so simply by plugging the phone into a wireless repeater, but here's the thing -- I do a lot of webinars and podcasts. If I connect this way, will the voice quality be compromised? Looking forward to brilliant ideas you might have.

Stephen

"I'm assuming I could do so simply by plugging the phone into a wireless repeater"

Nope. VoIP phones are hardwired to the router. You get a isp router that has the voip function builtin. It would be part of your ISP package.

A wireless phone extension is not the same as a VoIP phone. You can have a wireless base station [has to support voip] but it is hardwired back to the telephone socket which in the case of VoIP is the phone interface in the router.
