ZYXEL VoIP Wi-Fi phone

ZYXEL VoIP Wi-Fi phone
Summary Updated version of SIP-based WLAN phone that still uses 802.11b and supports only WEP security
Update None
Pros • Slimmer design
• Cordless phone comparable range
Cons • 11b will slow down 11g WLANs
• Doesn't support WPA or WPA2
• Unimpressive transmit voice quality

ZyXEL's P2000W v2 is an update of one of the first "consumer" VoIP WiFi phones. Although ZyXEL's marketing material pitches both consumer and corporate buyers, I picture businesses as the real target, with perhaps some individual VoIP junkies coming along for the ride.

It's available from some sources locked to Voiceglo's tglo service, but I requested that my review unit be unlocked so that I could fully explore it.

The "v2" shown above is a bit more compact than the the original (Figure 1) and has more of a squared-off look.

It also doesn't include a stand or case, coming only with a largish "travel charger" that plugs into a mini-USB port on the bottom of the phone to charge the removable 3.7V 1350mAh Li-ION battery pack.
