| || || | PSTN Failover
Is there a VOIP service (apart from the most excellent and expensive
Vonage) offering UK geographic numbers that has a PSTN Failover
function that actually works?
Our Gradwell number became unavailable for about an hour today due to a
bug in their code (?) or somesuch vague reason. Gradwell of course
don't offer a PSTN failover at the moment on their normal SIP accounts
and the SIP device was...

I know this has been asked before and I've been reading past posts but
I can't see that anyone has managed to use an ATA for this purpose.
I have bought a Linksys SPA2000 and a cordless VOIP phone for my
daughter and I'm hoping to be able to set this up for her when she goes
back to Uni next week.
Can someone please tell me whether this would be possible in a halls of

| || || | Are there better ADSL modem routers out there?
I'm only a few yards from the BT exchange. I'm with MAAF on their 8Mb
Max account and I'm getting a download speed in the region of 5Mb.
What's the likelihood of increasing my download speed by a) upgrading my
router's firmware and/or b) by getting a 'better' modem/router? If
that's an option, who are the market leaders?
The service is quite solid at the moment, but I use VoIP for my calls...

It is well known that I am not particularly a fan of Skype but for
those of you that are here is some news..
I heard this on the U.S. 'Tell Me' service.
At CES, in Las Vegas, Skype have announced 12 new phones and
accessories. One of these phones does NOT require a computer to be
switched on - it connects to a router and to PSTN.
I guess that it will be a cordless system but I don't...

I have an application where the internet will come in via a USB plug.
That will connect to a laptop running windows XP.
I want to run a SIP softphone on the PC - e.g. x-lite.
X-lite is good because it is possible to set a dial plan.
With all that in place I want to be able to use an adapter, connecting
via USB to the laptop, which will allow connection of a standard
