any DECT base stations out there with the BT style plug for the Sky router?

Moved from BT fibre to Sky and now understand the Sky router presents the phone as the old BT style socket, unfortunately all my phones are DECT with a rj45 base station. So is there a DECT base station out there that is able to plug into the old style BT socket in our Sky hubs?

 

thanks

Yes, I would say the vast majority do. Amazon will provide lots of examples.

I  don't know anything about Yealink phones, but I suspect if it's equipped with an RJ45 connector, it's an IP phone. You can still use it with Sky broadband, but you would need to be signed up with a separate VOIP provider.

 

An IP phone won't work with Sky Internet calling. You need a standard phone or standard DECT phone to plug into the broadband Hub.

As @Mark39 indicates, by definition if those have ethernet plugs then they are network devices, and cannot plug into the 'phone' port on a Sky Hub to work with the bundled Sky Talk Internet Calls. 

 

Yealink is largely a business rather than domestic supplier: in some cases the communication between Yealink handset and base may be DECT rather than real WiFi, but this doesn't make the base hardware compatible with the analogue telephone adapter (ATA) in an ISP router.

 

It is potentially possible to use SIP/VOIP phones over ethernet to the switch ports on a Sky Hub, but only with a separate and paid-for SIP/VOIP account obtained through a specialist telephony provider (not Sky)

@Frances113  As long as your Yealink phones are configured to work with your VOIP provider then as @TimmyBGood  indicated these plug into a network port of your hub or network switch and not the phone port of the Sky hub.
