FYI, Amazon is offering a discount with the wireless adapter and BT adapter, I was able to get the Obi and BT adapter for $75 after code and promotional discount

$15, worked - thanks

anyone know how I can make OBi to OBi calls?

May want to wait until Google decides if free calls are extended through 2013. I am getting nervous that they have not announced it yet.
Still, even if they start charging, it is the best device to sign up with other VOIP services.

how is the router part of it???

simple, just dial the number on the bottom of the unit!

Last year the announcement came on December 13 and announcements seem to get later every year...

Just my opinion: Doubtful USA GV will charge unless they offer incoming and outgoing alpha numeric caller ID and e911. Even then there is light usage competition at $5/mo.

Router still has some bugs when used with dsl, but OBI is working on it. Obi issues firmware updates as things are fixed/improved, and updating is very easy and/or automatic (as you prefer).

Just wondering, how does this compare to Ooma boxes and service?

I assume this cannot be used as regular router based on this statement"Built-In Router with QoS for VoIP Traffic Prioritization,only the OBiWiFi Wireless Adapter may be used with the OBi202". We will need to buy the OBIWifi adapters.

But it is also possible that Google may withdraw from the market.

My understanding is that it works as a "regular router", in that it will handle routing/nat/dhcp/etc. If you mean will it provide wireless access to client devices, no. You would need a separate wireless accesspoint for that.

My feeling is that this is designed firstly to ensure QOS for the VOIP. I think many people will be connecting this between the modem and a traditional router, using the traditional router in accesspoint mode to connect additional devices.

Correct (I have one)

> If you mean will it provide wireless access to client devices, no. You would need a separate wireless accesspoint for that.

Also correct, their wireless usb is for the device to access another net rather than to be an access point (which it is not).

>My feeling is that this is designed firstly to ensure QOS for the VOIP. I think many people will be connecting this between the modem and a traditional router, using the traditional router in accesspoint mode to connect additional devices.

Also correct, I use it that way.

Note- see previous post re dsl bug.

thanks for the nice explanation

Can you put this behind the router? I don't like putting anything between my router and modem...did it with SR back when it was cheap and alive....always had issues until I moved it to behind the router.
