I am very new here… I tried to solve my idea/problem on 2 forums but nobody could help me, that is why I am asking here.
I am trying to get some info for several days (weeks?) if my idea should work…
I am planing to but WNR3500L v2 router with 480mHz proc and 128mb ram with an usb port.
I know that I can install asterisk on it (the router fully supports tomato firmware)
My 1st question is - will I be able to plug a softphone usb into usb port on my router and will it work? I would like to have a softphone working 24/7 working and a router would be a great think to connect it as it is plugged to the internet 24/7 (a laptop or other computer works only a couple of hours a day - I know that it would be easier to work but I would like to try to plug to router - if possible of course).
I know about IP phones which you can plut to rj45 port in router but this is not what I am looking for… I just wonder if the router could be a ‘soft IP gate’ for a usb phone
My 2nd question: Is there a posibility to connect a standard analogue telephone with rj11 socked to a rj45 port in the router and to ‘tell’ installed asterisk on this router that eg LAN port 3 (rs45) where I plugged analogue telephone with a rj11 to rj45 converter that it should communicate to each other? I know that rj11 have to wires and rj45 has got min. 4 wires… what about the power? rj11 gives power to telephone as well as far as I know?
many thanks for even smalles reply,
