I have just moved over to a 4G provider that provide an aerial on the roof and a wireless router for indoors.
I have set up a dmz on the new router and forwarded it to my dd-wrt router that has all the config set up for the whole family.
I need a corded voip phone to plug into my dd-wrt router for the main phone indoors. The problem i have come up against are not knowing if some of these phones that i am seeing on ebay require a phone system or if they can just be plugged into the ethernet ports on my router. Additionally, regarding POE. I have seen some use a cisco standard and others use IEEE. So i am guessing that i cannot plug a cisco 7960G into mr router, configure it up via the sip page and expect it to work.
Also, will i have any problems that i am DMZ'ing traffic to the dd-wrt.
What IP phone models support the Cisco pre-standard method of powered device detection?
A. These Cisco IP phones can accept Cisco pre-standard PoE from a card integrated with a Cisco Catalyst switch or a Catalyst in-line power patch panel:
Any advice is welcome.
