Info on wireless routers

  23790954 20:18 11 Jan 2008

I use BT as my ISP and I am presently using a wired BT Voyager 220 router, which also supplies an extra phone line to my home.

I fancy upgrading to a wireless router, but do not want to lose the extra phone line. Is there such a thing as a wireless BT router which also supplies the extra phone line, when it is a WIRELESS router. A wireless router into which I can plug a telephone. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Many thanks.

Do you subscribe to a VoIP service?

The Speedtouch 780WL has voice ports as does the BT Business Hub (aka 2wire 2700HGV) but you may only be able to source the latter on Ebay.

NO, I don't subscribe to a VOIP service.
The wired router I use has a telephone socket on it, and when subscribing to BT Broadband they supply you with a number, which you can use on a telephone which you plug into router. I was hoping that I could buy a similar but wireless router, into which I could plug the telephone, and continue using the number. Any further advice would be appreciated.

I think if you upgrade to the BT HomeHub you may get one issued Free by BT ... click here

Simple answer - ask BT. I am also with BT and have the HomeHub given free when I upgraded.
