I got an Obi about 2 weeks ago. Love it. Works perfectly with the service that I have for VOIP.

I find the on-the-actual-Internet-based configuration exceedingly annoying, but I haven't exactly had a chance to play around much with it either.

I'd agree, it's slow but...you can turn it off and just configure it locally if you want.

Why does it say to connect Obi to wall jack?

Shouldn't Obi be connected to Router\Switch, and phone to Obi, thats it?

Noob here for VOIP, i have it for couple of days only.

It depends what Obi you got. Some models can act as routers as well. It depends on your setup too.

For me, I have mine connected to my phones in the basement (I have a newer home, all the networking/phone lines come into the same panel), which then connects into my router. I gave it a dedicated IP on my router, setup QoS to give priority to that IP and away I went.

Well, i was going to get that Cisco, but, after reading more i think i will be getting Obi.

I was looking at:
»www.digitalcon.ca/obistore/

I think i should get OBi202 since i would like to have my fax connected to it?

So, it will work like this:
Obi to Switch\Router, Panasonic phone to Obi, Fax to Obi thats it?:D

Yup.
BTW that's where I bought mine too
I recommend you look over the FAQ's at the Obi site just to get yourself familiar with the setup. There are some phone codes you need to punch into enable disable stuff.

You can control it from a web interface (it's easier to figure out than the local setup). You just need to sign up here with a user/pass

Thanks.

Total price would be $106.78

OBi202 + Shipping (2 days) + Tax.

Is it really worth it? Is there any other better solution for the money?
