Internet Calls Without A Computer

Using the Internet to carry your telephone calls can save you a lot of money (how about free) and give you more features than you probably need.
ZD Net’s article on this reads, “Unlike devices that require a PC, these simply plug into your broadband Internet connection, using a standard Ethernet cable. That means you either need to locate them next to your broadband router – which can be inconvenient – or use a wireless bridge to position the phone elsewhere in your house. While one phone line can serve multiple receivers, not every device supports multiple phones for a single number. And like the PC solutions, if you want to dial a non-VOIP phone, expect to pay a monthly fee – albeit less than the standard home phone and long-distance rates.” (full story)
