VoIP adaptor considerations / questions
I have the dlink gateway ATA and according to Comwave it's not to be
used as a gateway, even though their printed manual says it is, but
has to be after the router. Anyone here know what the real story is?
Dlink tech would not talk to me.
I have ordered an Azacall 200 that is supposed to be best in class.
Any one got an opinion on it?

SIP seems to be the most popular open standard currently. Skype use
their own proprietary standard which (AFAIK) depends on their s/w being
installed on your computer. Vonage use SIP but their ATAs are locked in
to their service and a bog-standard ATA won't work (unless you opt for
the additional smartphone tariff and use those settings?).
Having now used both Sipura and Grandstream I would recommend Sipura.
Possibly harder to configure, because you have far more options, but
having user-configuable Caller ID and ringer settings etc is worth the
extra tinkering. And the Sipura kit seems less likely to lock-up or
The Sipura SPA-2100 and the Grandstream ATA-486 can both be used as a
router, inasmuch as it can sit between your modem and your computer, but
unless you have a proper router after it you will only be able to
connect one computer to it. The Sipura SPA-1001 can handle two lines,
but only one phone, so if you want to have simultaneous outgoing and
incoming calls you need the SPA-2000 (with a router) or the SPA-2100.
TBH if you have a standard broadband connection and don't make a habit
of doing mega-downloads while you're on the phone you probably don't
need a router-type ATA for decent QoS. I swapped my ATA-486 for a
SPA-1001 and haven't noticed any drop in call quallity.
