What are my requirements?

#1
I am in the process of setting up a business account and having several numbers but only two users.

We will have two direct geo numbers two direct geo fax numbers and a PBX system with 2 extension numbers.

One of the users will be working from a laptop jumping from WI-FI network as they need. So we will use the X-lite soft phone and a headset. From the looks of it this looks like a suitable headset Plantronics DSP-400 USB headset (any comments).
Out of interest I notice that snom have a softphone does this work with voipfone and has anyone used it?

So that's one user prity much sorted.

The second user will be on a fixed pc. We will be using a snom 320 directly hocked up to the pc. From my understanding you have a conection from your router/modem to the phone then from the phone to the computer as the phone acts as a switch.

So you have an either conection between the router to the phone then from the phone this is when I get lost is it a USB point to the PC or something else please help!!!!!

I will be using a belkin router is this suitable http://www.dabs.com/productview.aspx?Qu ... ationKey=0

Yes, it works fine I used it for a while. But I think the SJPhone is better. You'll find a link to it in the softphone forum

That's correct. You take a cat 5 cable from the router to the phone then another to the PC. It just saves having two cables from the workstation to the router. [the phone and the PC work completely independently of each other so long as you leave the phone switched on.]

It's ethernet (standard cat5 with RJ45 connections) from the phone to the PC. All that connection does is make a LAN connection for you as tho' you plugged the cable directly into your router. It has nothing to do with VoIP, it just connects your PC to your router without needing another cable.

If you wish to use a softphone on the PC too ,you can use a softphone or a hardware phone connected via USB to the PC.
