        hi, i have a pretty old PPPoA (one of these http://www.speedtouch.com.br/st330platinum/aqvs...) would it be possible to use it as a pstn trunk (?)
      • lankanmon has quit

        Its a modem. thats it
      • alexandre9099
        hmm from a search it seems that either no one looked at it, or it is not possible, how can i connect my phone (it has an rj11 connector, i have no idea about the encoding) to an asterisk box? what's the cheapest way?
      • dadrc
        Buy an ATA of your choosing
      • Or trash the phone and buy a cheap SIP phone
      • alexandre9099
        ATA stands for?
      • dadrc
        analogue telephone adapter
      • alexandre9099
        i would like to use the number that my isp gives
      • ok, i'll search, thanks :)
      • dadrc
        probably not cheaper than getting a simple SIP phone, though. And quite possibly harder to configure.
      • cheapest one we've used is the Cisco SPA112.
      • you can get one of those for about 30€ here
      • a cheap grandstream SIP phone costs about 28€ =)
      • alexandre9099
        how would a sip phone be helpful?
      • i don't have a sip account, that's what i wanted to do ;)
      • Samot
        You can't magically do this.
      • You need a SIP account. You need a phone provider who supports this.
      • dadrc
        If you have an Asterisk box (which I assumed from your previous statements) you've got SIP accounts
      • If not, an ATA is equally useless
      • Well, except for your ISP providing you with a SIP account
      • If they do, you can use a SIP phone to connect to that account and use it
      • Samot
        In regards to the original question, that SpeedTouch is a DSL modem. That's it, nothing else.
      • It doesn't do SIP, it doesn't even have LAN ports.
      • One cannot do any type of VoIP/SIP on it.
      • lankanmon joined the channel
      • alexandre9099
        i wanted to use it to connect to an asterisk box that would *convert* the signal to sip
      • kinda like chan_dongle does with those gsm usb sticks
      • also, i don't want a sip phone, i would use a softphone on my mobile/laptop (not sure if asterisk can ring to both sip clients at the same time)
      • i already have an analog(?) phone connected to that port on the router
      • Samot
        Sigh.
      • It's a DSL MODEM
      • The RJ11 is for the DSL LINE
      • It's not a voice capable device.
      • Nothing in that device says it supports any form of telephony.
      • I don't know how many times I have to answer your question. It is just a modem, it will not do what you are looking to do.
      • alexandre9099
        hmm i see :) so if i wanted one of those "voice rj11 to usb converted" (it surelly has a correct name that i don't know :D ) i would need to use an ATA like dadrc said?
      • Samot
        First, you would need a real modem.
      • One that has actual Ethernet ports so you can plug a real router in behind it.
      • Second, if the line you are using for your DSL is also your voice line that is a completely different type of service.
      • So basically, right now there is nothing that you can do to use your home line for SIP/VoIP.
      • alexandre9099
        no, i have a fiber service, and from the ont/router there are two rj11 connectors that are connected to some sip account that the isp would not tell the the credentials
      • so, on the wire(from those ports) there should only be voice data, nothing else :)
      • Samot
        Because they are using SIP to provide your home service.
      • It's not a SIP account meant for *your* use on random devices.
      • alexandre9099
        that's why i wanted to have some kind of adapter for *my* use on random devices :D
      • Samot
        The "voice" line is already been "converted" from SIP to analog so you can use home phones.
      • The voice service from your ISP is already basically doing what you have been asking.
      • It takes SIP, uses an ATA device, converts it to analog.
      • alexandre9099
        but i want the "endpoint"(?) to be a computer or a smartphone, not a "dumb" analog phone ;)
      • Samot
        OK
      • alexandre9099
        that's my whole question, how to do that :)
      • Samot
        You cannot do that with your "home" service from the ISP
      • You would have to get a second account from another provider that is purely SIP
      • And then you can do what you want with it.
      • Use Asterisk, an ATA, an IP Phone directly..
      • alexandre9099
        hmm ok, i see, so there is no kind of "analog phone to usb converter" that can be used on asterisk
      • Samot
        OK
      • GD.
      • alexandre9099
        thanks a lot, and sorry for bothering you :(
      • Samot
        Again, the SpeedTouch 330 is a DSL modem. It has no voice/SIP/telephony abilities.
      • It's junk in regards to what you want to do.
      • alexandre9099
        ok, i already got that modem out of my mind, i was looking into alternatives ;)
      • Samot
        So basically you need to get a VOIP/SIP service from a provider...
      • alexandre9099
        ok, i see, thanks
