For some time now I have been making use of a NEC Voice over IP telephone to keep in touch from my home office. I’ve also been enjoying the freedom of a wireless network card in my laptop to be able to work at different places, but still needing to run back to my desk to get the phone. Well now, thanks to a little network configuration and a USB network adapter, I am able to connect my IP set directly to my laptop which routes it through it’s wireless adapter on to my VPN connection to the head office. The result is an (almost) wireless voice over IP phone. I’m hoping soon that NEC comes out with an 802.11 wireless IP set of their own, but for now this will do nicely!
