My cable modem is in my entertainment center and not a good place to put a telephone, so rather then attach the motorola telephone adapter directly to the cable modem I'm planning to use a Linksys WET11 Wireless Bridge so I can put the Motorola adapter anywhere I want. I have used the bridge before in another application and it worked great, so I don't see why the Moterola shouldn't operate well when going over wireless to get to my router. Here's a picture that hopefully clarifies things a bit.



Has anybody tried something like this and had success?

My wireless router has 4 ether ports on the back. I was going to use one of them for the ATA. But if I could use a wireless adapter and have the flexibility to move it anywhere in the house.... that would be awesome.

Is a bridge the same as an adapter? (except it uses cable from it to a nic)

A wireless bridge basically allows any network device to use your wireless network. So the ATA being a network device, instead of plugging it directly to an ethernet port on your router you could plug it into the wireless bridge. (I've updated the image to make it more clear where the ATA is in all this). I haven't actually done this, so I don't know how well it would work.

right but when you say wireless bridge what do you mean? Is a wireless bridge the same as an adapter?

I ask because when I lookup a wireless bridge and it's cost it's like over $1,000 seems a bit high just to put a ATA on a wireless network. On the other hand I've found these adapters for about $80 (I would need a USB to Cat5 adapter) but it's price is easier to swallow...

I'm using a D-Link wireless bridge right now, but I can't remember if you can use it wirelessly while you have a ethernet connection to it as well. From what I can remember (and I am at work right now), you can either use it as an access point (alone), or as a bridge. The ethernet connection on the back is either used to connect to your internet connection, then brodcast the signal wirelessly (AP), or to configure the settings on the unit while plugged into a router then bridge the signal coming from the wireless router.

Let us know if it works if you decide to try it. If so, I may end up doing this as well.

As I said I'm using the Linkys WET11.

http://www.linksys.com/Products/product.asp?grid=22&prid=432

It's about $80 IIRC. You just hook one end of your ethernet cable to it, and the other end to your ethernet device. This allows you to use any ethernet device wirelessly. Linksys also sells one for G networks, but I forget the model no.

I do a lot of networking for a living. I would have no hesitation doing what you outlined. Just make sure you configure WEP on the router and bridge so at least you have some privacy. Sure, WEP isn't perfect, but it's a whole bunch better than nothing or just using MAC address filtering.

Also, if it's possible, reduce power as low as you can and have good reliable voice communications - this will also improve security. My guess is that you can't change power in either the router or the bridge.

Well, it works. Got my Motorola ATA today. Didn't read the instructions, just plugged everything in and viola. I have heard some breaking up, but that might be because I have my wilreless bridge co-located with my 2.4 GHz Cordless phone base station. This looks like it will be a great solution, but I don't talk much so it will be a while to know for sure. Cool

For me the really exciting part will be when my Verizon phone line gets shut off! Smile

Just an update. The 802.11b/g wireless defintely has too much interference with the 2.4GHz cordless phone. I may return the phone for a 5.8 GHz phone or try a different channel on my wireless. I here Channel 11 works best alongside cordless phones.
