Asterisk Question


Okay, my setup is a Digium X100P/X101P analogue PSTN FXO interface running on slack. I'm using a plain old telephone line that just connects to the asterisk box(which is in my living room). I'd like to have a phone in my bedroom that connects via my lan (can be a wireless phone, or usb hard phone that connects to a machine in my bedroom) to the asterisk box, and does all its business via the PSTN. Is this possible? What sort of phone do I need (SIP)? Any help / advice is appreciated.

Yeh sure it is possible, with sip or iax2. Just get the phone configure it within iax.conf or sip.conf, make a dial plan for it in extensions.conf and off you go. I can help you out more, but Im not really sure what you need at this point other than to say, Linksys is making some nice stuff these days.
Heres a link that has so much cool stuff :]

Thanks for the reply. I suppose I'm looking for a cheap phone that's compatable with asterisk and my Digium X100P/X101P analogue PSTN FXO interface. So any specific phone reccomendations will be appreciated. Also, I'll go some googling, but and comments on sip vs iax2? Thanks again, any help / advice is appreciated.

Well you just need an ip phone, most of the ones I have come across can do sip or iax. Cisco makes awesome ones, but they cost a lot of money as well, thats why I mentioned Linksys. I use analog phones in my house, I was lucky enough to have my wife allow me to take control with asterisk, maybe later I will introduce a little more complexity. :]

Okay, thanks a lot. I've done some looking around ebay and see some cheap 5.8ghz cordless SIP / IAX2 phones around $50 bucks, I'm just unsure if they're combatable with linux/bsd. But I guess I'll just take my chances ( unless any one has a specific phone recommendations that they're had succusses with, cordless preferably, and nothing in the 900mhz band, I'd prefer some semblance of privacy).
