Hi, wanted to know if anyone out there in ekiga network could
recommend a great sip phone for residential use, thats low priced. As
I am looking into setting up for my house phone connection using
voip/sip capabilities from my verion fios router. Thanks in advance.
At work and home, we use what's called an ATA adapter. I've used
Motorola and Linksys brands. You plug in to ethernet, configure via web
interface with VOIP login, etc, then connect POTS phones to your old
fashioned POTS home wiring. The adapters are about $20 for 2 analog
lines, and typically support FAX pass through on one of the ports as well.
Or if anyone who has done this already for there homes, can point me
in a direction to get more information on how i would go about
changing my home phone into a voip/sip phone.
For a real SIP phones that have an LCD and connect only to ethernet,
Linksys has one for $100 that my coworker uses. Some have a built in
switch in case you have only one ethernet outlet at your desk (so you
can connect your computer as well).
I run Ekiga on a netbook for my "SIP phone". Works great. Even on the
500Mhz OLPC XO-1, audio is crystal clear and snappy. (On the XO-1, the
CPU can support video in one direction only. Enabling the second camera
overloads the CPU!)
