You mean 1.5 MBPS.Yes it should work but a higher speed is recommended. Cos if the service provider advertise their speed as 3MBps, you practically get 2.2 or something. So you would be getting less than 1.5. 1MBps maybe. Call quality may drop. Get at least 3mbps.

The NETALK DUO Does NOT require a computer at all! just plug it in to an ethernet port on your modem or router and your good to go.If you want to plug it in to your computer you can do that also it has a usb port on it for connecting to your computer. That is why it is called the DUO because you can use it two ways. Much better than the Majicjack

That is correct. However you DO need a "real" phone if you aren't going to use a computer. For instance a cordless or corded one. Also, you need to use the internet so you either need to plug it into the router (be sure it's one that works well with NetTalk- see my review of the product) OR computer in order to have it work. The computer does not have to be on if you are running it through the router. You can go online at nettalk . com and check out their quick start guide via PDF that's also included with the DUO. It will show you how it all works before you purchase it.

You need to either connect it to an Ethernet port on your router (if it has one) or directly to your computer with the supplied USB cable. The Duo does not have wireless capability. You will need to download and install the drivers from their website.

On most wireless cable modems there are four Ethernet ports. The device has to connect to this, and the phone has to connect to the nettalk device. I was hoping I could connect it into my home phone wiring but that didn't work out. On ebay they sell a wireless device -- do a search for dd-wrt, they cost as little as $25. These devices can connect to your existing wireless network. I for example have an AT&T 2Wire DSL wireless router that sits in our den, my nettalk is plugged into a DD-WRT device that sits in my kitchen. My DD-WRT device connects to the 2Wire DSL modem via Wireless Ethernet.

Yes, you can do it that way, without any problems or additional wiring. I have a phone system with 20 handset and 4 phone lines all are using netTalk, I was able to make this work also, was not the easiest but is possible and worth it, with a little creative wiring. (On your end of it) So you can use you old phone wiring system, create a closed loop (phone box on outside of building structure, in customer access side of the box only, disconnect wires from phone company, now your completely independent) a closed loop system. netTalk is set up as a single line, so you have to have one for each line. Feed each single line into the custom access box and wire into the old exiting wiring.

NetTalk will only provide service to a single phone input connection and won't by itself drive the other tip/ring current loop as required by a regular POTS (plain old telephone service) - get a wireless phone/base station with 3 wireless phones - thats how I'm set up - recommend 5.2 GHz to reduce EMI with other router and wireless devices.

If you have checked their website where the routers that have been tested are listed and yours is not identified I would call them. Routers are cheap but I would upgrade if you have the usual entry level versions like a Netgear WNDR3700 - that one works good with other speed enhance benefits

If its a 2wire one i have one at home and it worked. It did need a setting change however, but if you call their technical support staff im pretty sure they can do these changes for you.

More than likely it will work with your current router. You may have to tweak some settings on your router but Net Talk support will walk you through that.

I have an AT&T wireless gateway made by 2wire. It works fine with it. As long as it has an ethernet port, it works.

I have the ATT Uverse wireless gateway and have no problems. I can't answer for other gateways. I purchased my Nettalk through Walmart, figuring that if I had a problem I would have no problems returning it. You have to order it online through Walmart. I figured if I had any problems, it would be much easier to work with Walmart and could return it to the store.

Check with Net Talk tech people. Ask for a specific list of compatible routers. They do have one.

Question

Call quality and reliability?

How is the quality of the calls? Delay, echo, clarity, etc? How about dropped call, or trouble making/receiving calls?

As long as your internet service is fast enough, you will have no problem. If it's too slow, you will have problems such as you described.

My dsl connection speed is less than 1.0 mbps speed which is pretty slow but the Net Talk call quality is still comparable to a landline. Magic Jack connected to a computer usb port may get choppy or make clicking sounds or drop calls at this same dsl connection speed but I have not had problems with Net Talk. I am very pleased with Net Talk. My guess is that Magic Plus may sound better than Magic Jack since it connects directly to a router but the physical design/construction of NetTalk device seems better. Net Talk can connect to both router and computer usb port.

Its pretty good in my case. I am in I.T. and know how to set it up for optimal performance though. If you read my review here it might help explain a little.

Call quality great. Haven't noticed any echo. Haven't dropped one call yet and the only "problem"if you would call it a problem is you have to make sure you dial the area code on every call, which isn't hard if you put the numbers in your phone anyway.

Quality is equal to the service I had from att-uverse. Keep in mind noises and other problems can be your home phone lines if you are running through you entire home system as I did.

excellent quality of calls just make sure you get a / or have a router that is compatiable like linksys or netgear. Belkin routers are horrible

I have had mine installed for about two weeks; crystal clear, no echo, no delay, no dropped calls, no trouble what so ever. Probably clearer that the telephone company copper wire.
