      I have recently bought a Topcom Webtalker 5000 (due primarily to its supposedly high quality speakerphone) from the Skype web site. I need to be able to use this in my office (upstairs). However, I have no PSTN/BT line in this room, and my PC is connected via a wireless broadband router in my kitchen (downstairs). My issue is therefore that it makes no sense to connect the phone to the wireless router, as I would never use it downstairs.

      I am guessing my options are:

      – to enable wireless capability on the phone (although I understand there is an expansion kit, which fits into the USB port on the device, no-one seems to sell it and there is no informtaion on the Topcom website)
      – plug the device into my PC (although my PC does not seem to recognise the device using a standard male-to-male USB connection)

      Can someone help, as I am pulling my hair out…?

    As a simple solution, Matt, you can use some Ethernet over Power adaptors. Just connect one to the router downstairs and another one – upstairs. Then connect your Topcom Webtalker 5000 to that adaptor. You don’t seen additional wires in that case.

    Skype has saved me a ton. It has eliminated the need for a landline.
