"The best invention since the fax machine."4.5 starson by martinallard
Pros: Integrate skype with your home phone system flawlessly.
Cons: Pc has to run for this to work with skype.
Summary: The setup:
1- Connect your land line in the actiontec.
2- Connect the actiontec to your pc.
3- Connect an expansion ready cordless phone (ie AT&T 5.8GHz Expandable from Costco ) to the actiontec.
Voila! you have your landline fully integrated with VOIP.
You can use this to call friends who use skype voice for free. Or you can call anybody on a landline using skypeOut for about 2 to 3 cents a minutes anywhere in the world!. No contract, no nothing. It cut my phone bill by 50%.
Voice quality is good as long as you use this with a broadband connection. So if your connection has a slowdown, then expect voice quality degradation.
People can can call you using skype or a landline and it will then ring on your normal phone system.
If your computer is turn off, you can still receive normal landline phone call.
The guys at actiontec made one of the best device I'v seen for a long time.
