I imagine some variation of this question has been asked before, but I’m not finding it.
The Extend Home works off of internet, correct? Yet you can use any phone that used to work with the old land lines? These regular phones somehow become VOIP devices?
Your instructions say to plug the Extend Home device into my Wi-Fi gateway, using the included ethernet cable. But there’s also something that says you can plug the Extend Home device into an existing phone jack. That confuses me. The existing phone jacks in my house are connected to the old AT&T copper wire, not to any internet. So how is the Extend Home going to be connected to the Wi-Fi gateway? And if it can be connected via Wi-Fi rather than ethernet, what would be the purpose of plugging it into a phone jack?
My dilemma is that I want to place the Extend Home device somewhere else in the house, not right next to the Wi-Fi gateway. And I don’t want ethernet cable running all through the house. So does the Extend Home device connect via Wi-Fi?
Also, do you have to plug the Extend Home device into a wall outlet?
I feel like I’m not asking these questions very well, but maybe someone can make sense of it.
