I'm not sure, but I believe that the ExternalInterface is actually the 
'internal' port of your router.
We normally have it configured to vlan1 which assigns all of the client 
devices that connect to the wifidog AP
dhcp addresses on it's network.

I believe that Br0 is the WAN port which gets it's own address dynamically 
from whatever
Internet service (DSL/cablemomdem) you end up attaching your router to.

As far as VOIP goes, I'm not all that certain that wireless VOIP makes 
sense just yet (or perhaps it does make sense JUST for the time being).

VOIP generally has two problems. (1) quality of service which is partially 
dictated by the APs abilities to begin with and (b) by bandwith.
Most locations you install an AP will have enough bandwidth to support a 
good number of laptops and a few VOIP phones but don't expect to make a 
solid phone call
in a coffee shop where guys on a laptops are streaming video and a bunch of 
people are making VOIP calls. The required bandwidth simply isn't there.

I say that you might be able to get away with it today , because you may 
very well find yourself in a location where there are only a handful of 
laptop users checking email and web surfing
  and you're the only guy with a VOIP phone. There is no question that the 
technology is interesting but you are sitting on the bleeding edge of 
something that will be fleshed out as wireless
networks grow and more companies devote time to these sort of issues.
