Vonage

Vonage is currently the leading provider for VOIP users who want to talk on regular traditional phones. Motorola and Linksys have teamed up with Vonage to provide routers with VOIP capabilities. A Vonage user would simply connect a VOIP router between a cable/DSL modem and a traditional phone. Vonage also provides 4-port wireless VOIP routers. If you would like to keep your current wireless router, you can always connect Vonage’s VOIP router to your normal router. Below are some examples on how to connect Vonage VOIP hardware.
