    My name is Noël Bouchard. I am a programmer from Montreal specialised in telephony ...

    I have recently developed a small hybrid PBX (asterisk) embedded in a Linksys
    4 port router with WI-FI AP, running Linux / OpenWRT / asterisk

    It allows to share the Internet and the telephony resource for 4 PCs and telephones,
    allowing up to 4 internal "extensions" to place and receive calls from/to the PSTN and/or one
    (or more) VoIP "lines".
    You can even use WI-FI VoIP phones like this:

    You will find more details on the "MARS" system by following the links below.


    Thank you for your interest ...

    Best regards

    Noël Bouchard

    Nice idea! congrats

    u might want to see

    the flash upgrade contains some asterisk solutions, I've heard of ppl running 6 simultaneous calls on one WRT54

    but I run a full blown box.

    best wishes

    It would be nice if your PBX supports G729 codec in passthrough-only mode, without re-coding. I beleive it does not require a paid license.

    It would be nice, too if you sell just firmware, so I can upload it to my own router. By the way, what Linksys hardware is supported?
