VOIP Phone in another room

I have a phone plugged into the back of my Hub but want to have another upstairs. How can I do this? Is there any way of connecting the hub to my existing phone network?

Easiest way is to buy cordless handsets

Assuming you are using a conventional telephone plugged into the TEL socket on the back of the hub ...

Your simplest route would be to get a cordless phone setup with a suitable number of wireless extensions. Plug the cordless base station into the hub and use the wireless extensions where needed.

If you are looking at linking your extension sockets to the back of the hub, there was a past post about that here

If you are tech-minded, not too hard to do. If not, then it can be a bit confusing to work out!

VM may also be able to do this for you but might be at a cost.
