ADSL Router with built in ATA?


[link to this post]
 
Not exactly a common beast thesedays, I have had bad experiences with the AVM Fritz! So that is not an option unfortunately, the draytek doesn't work well with my provider, so I was wondering what other options there are? I have found that TP Link used to do the TD-VG3631 but it's been discontinued.

Any other options that don't break the bank? Looking to spend less .

Why not use a separate box such as the Cisco SPA112, or for arguable a better but more expensive solution, get a Gigaset N300IP VOIP DECT base station and some C430 handsets?

Yes a Gigaset is a good choice. But for some users requiring more sophisticated facilities, it becomes fiddling to use.

The ATA in the Draytek routers will work with all providers but it is essential to load the latest and correct firmware. The 2830 is more problematical to get VoIP working but no issues at all with the 2860. Sadly a mortgage is required to buy one. If you have a deep enough pocket go for the 2860Vac.

The 2860 is an all in one unit suitable for ADSL and VDSL.

Possibly better to look at the SxxxA GO from Gigaset rather than the N300IP. It is an upgraded version supplied with a single handset (or multiples if required) where the xxx is a handset variant making it a S850A GO for example.

Is there a model with an FXO port too?

The N300IP has an FXO port so you can receive (and if you want) make calls via a copper phone line. You can have dial plans so that for example, you can route all 0800 calls to go via copper phone line, and mobile calls use discountvoip.

The Cisco SPA 112 has two FXS ports each of which can be registered to separate VOIP providers.
