Adding VOIP phone to second modem/router

Hi. I have fixed wireless NBN and VOIP at my flying club. What I want to do is extended the current WiFi network to included a second router via a bridge. Can I plug a phone into the second router's VOIP port and have access to incoming and outgoing calls on the same number?

Re: Adding VOIP phone to second modem/router

Depends on the VOIP service. If you are referring to the standard Telstra VOIP service the same number will only work with one gateway.

If you are referring to a VOIP service from a third party such as MyNetfone you can use the same phone number on several devices including routers with built in VOIP adapters. It is not supported but I have installed an VOIP app on my mobile and can access the number from either the mobile or the phone attached to the router. Both phones ring on incoming calls.

Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
