I've been doing some experimenting with VOIP and asterisk over my
wireless network and came up with a few general observations that I
thought might be useful for those of you looking at voip and how it
impacts your network:
1) My test voip server is a P3 550 with 512MB of
We are using Asterisk too and it does seem to be very feature rich.
When you where testing did you notice a difference between the voice quality
of GSM and G729? Also, is your Asterisk server peering with your provider
using IAX2 and G711?
To optimize your StarOS AP I
I found an easy way to set up an asterisk box with AMP called [EMAIL
http://asteriskathome.sourceforge.net/, they have good help pages. You burn
an ISO disk and then let it do it's thing on boot. It will wipe the hard

What are people doing for WRAP board lightning protection?
Basically the WRAP board has a part that blows up, if it receives more than
21 Volts to its DC input.
So a typical CAT5 Lightning protector that protects the DC pairs at only
35V, 50V or 60V would pretty much be useless for protecting
Has anyone tested Mikrotik's VLAN support over the Wireless ports (Atheros)
for large packet support (1500 bytes + additional bytes for VLAN )?
I know that you can't layer VLAN on top of two pre-existed bridged ports,
