I’ve moved to an ISP that provides a VOIP landline, but alas their staff (as is the case with all low end, cheap ISPs I figure) are clueless if you’re not using their “approved” router, which is a Huawei HG659. It has an RJ11 pot on back and presumably some VOIP configs on it web interface that this ISP exploits.
The Omnia lacks an RJ11 port, but it does have a SFP module cage, and approved SFP modules:
(none of which are listed as RJ11 copper based, for VOIP).
I guess I’m curious:
- Is there an SFP module availablet hat ads an RJ11 port for VOIP use>
- Can Turris OS (OpenWRT) be configured (easily though Foris or Luci) or more basically (with UCI or simply the filesystem configs) to dedicate one of it’s ports (either an SFP provided one or one of it’s other RJ45 ports) to a VOIP connection?
- If so, can a simple RJ11 phone plug into one of those ports, perhaps with a small adapter?
Here’s a classic cheap little plug converter:
for example and here’s a generic GB RJ456 SFP:
Wondering if anyone has experience or advice here? Both those are cheap enough to take a punt on, but still, any a-priori advice/experience is welcome,
