Get Your Wireless VoIP and Internet While On the Road

SMC has just announced a product that many a road warrior will appreciate - a wireless gateway for both wireless broadband internet use (used as a wireless access point) and as a wireless VoIP station. Talk about bypassing those large hotel bills - and even your cellphone for some of those long international phone calls.

In addition to being a WEP and WPA-protected wireless router, the SMC model SMCWTVG (love that great model name) also features a robust feature set like many other mid-range wireless routers - it can act as a repeater and a NAT switch device to supply access to a roomful of PCs and interfaces an analog telephone line (POTS) to VoIP usage. So, Say you're in London and want to call Los Angeles - but the hotel phone bill or even your cellular phone would be really expensive to use. Pick up an analog phone and plug into this box, then ensure your broadband connection is working. Place your VoIP call and there you go - no huge phone bills. This one feature alone would make this box worth the price to many international travellers.
