I'm happy with the LinkSys PAP2, others are happy with ATAs under the Sipura
brand.

They can be problematic. If you are willing to learn then, with the
hep of this forum you will probably be OK. You have to first decide on
your needs - do you want your landline to operate throughthe same
phone - if so SPA-3000. If you want 2 voip numbers on one phone
SPA-1001 ...etc.etc.
Alteratively, you could choose an operator where the ATA was already
set up for you. Don't go for a locked device though otherwise you're
stuck withthat operator.
Try looking at voip.co.uk and look to buy a ready set up ATA if you
want t go that route.

Do you happen to know if there are any that will take
four different services ? .


The AVM Fritz!Box range will allow up to 10 SIP accounts simultaneously.
There are only 2 phone sockets, so prefix codes are used to force a call
on a specific account if required. Incoming calls can ring either or both
phones.

My experience is with the Sipura SPA-3000.
If you want to your landline and voip to come through on the same
handset(s) then the 3000, out of the Sipura stable, is the one you
should choose. If you just want a voip then there are a number of ATAs
you can choose. Check out the Sipura web site etc.
www.broadbandstuff.co.uk
is quite good on prices but you can buy from the operators as well.
As far as calling out is concerned you DO NOT have to call out via the
same operator you receive calls on. By setting your dial plan
accordingly yo should be able to route your calls via an unlimited
list of operators. On the 3000 there is also a shorthand way of
assigning 4 additional outgoing operators, for use in the dial plan,
but this can be set up directly in the dial plan too. I assume that
this is possible on other Sipura models and with the Linksys PAP2 etc.
(make sure you don't buy a Vonage locked PAP2!)
I would choose a reliable company with good incoming call services
(voicemail etc.) If they have a good tariff for outgoing calls then
the set up is that bit easier - if not sign up with other operator(s)
for calling out.
www.voipfone.co.uk is reliable and excellent for incoming call
services - you could check out their tariff and see if it suits you.
www.voip.co.uk is reliable and has an excellent UKcalls tariff. They
are not quite there yet on their voicemail etc. but they are planning
to install new software shortly (so I am informed).
Various companies offer cheap/free calls. They may be less reliable
but 'you pays your money.....'
In summary:
1. Buy an ATA to suit your needs - MAKE SURE THAT IT IS NOT LOCKED TO
ANY OPERATOR.
2. Choose your main operator based on reliability and incoming call
services.
3. Choose additional operators, if necessary, for calling the
countries of your choice.
voipbuster, voipstunt, for example, are quite good but don't expect
great reliability - always have a back up operator!
4. Check your ATA will support addtional operators in the dial plan.

Consult, google groups for past postings, this forum and
www.voxilla.com for detailed information on dial plans and other help.
