However, should you choose to connect your gateway to a wireless network, you should remember that the reliability and quality of the VoIP connection is dependent on the reliability of your wireless network. Should it go down for any reason, you will lose the connection between your gateway and the Primus VoIP server. At this point, any calls coming in to your TBB number will be routed according to the backup configuration you have set in the MyTBB portal. Wireless networks can also impact latency, jitter, and packet loss, resulting in a degradation of call quality.
If you are using a 2.4Ghz cordless phone with this wireless network setup, it is very possible that your telephone will interfere with your network resulting in severe reliability issues. Even if your cordless phone is 900Mhz or 5.8Ghz, other electronic devices in your home may interfere with your network (e.g., microwaves, radios, etc.).
