Cisco advertises a product to connect VOIP based (cat5 cable needed)  products (phones) without need for connectivity via wire (wireless)

this is the product in reference

its goes as cheap or as expensive as $36 on google shopping

my question is where there alternative to this product as to my research its seems to be one of a kind.
$36 makes me think twice to pay for ethernet jack and wireless transmitter.

maybe there is  ethernet jack(cat5) to wireless trasnmitter i can pick up at local computer store?

would it work with voip phone?

my phone model is linksys spa921-EU

The point in this product is that it provides the PoE and the wireless link from one box.
Other wireless bridges need power for the bridge and power for the phone.
