My wireless router is located in the basement along with the cable modem. My dad wants to setup a VoIP phone for his computer upstairs which currently uses a wireless network card for internet access. Is this possible?

The easiest thing to do, is plug the VoIP router into your wireless router in the basement. Then get a cordless phone and plug that into your VoIP router.

Just make sure you get a 900 MHz phone so it will not interfere with your wireless router at 2.4 GHz

This is my exact setup ! Yeap, there is no 2.4GHz devices in my home ... Only 900Mhz and 5.8GHz ...

But if you put the cordless phone base unit at the basement, you will have to recharge your cordless phone handset at the basement as well. This may not be the most convenient thing to do. I eventually move my VoIP box to the main floor along with the cordless phone base unit.

Just my C$0.02 ...

Why not do this and have your VoIP service sent to all jacks in your house? (wire up a new phone jack in the basement)

Router - > VoIP box - > phone jack

Assuming the rest of the jacks in the house are on the same line, this will work as all jacks are connected to a central point either inside or in a box on the outside of the house, the signal will be sent throughout and you can plug a phone into any one
