1.5 Mbit/sec may be just fine. The only way to truly know it to try it.

1.5 MBit/sec average rate is certainly adequate, since VOIP needs only about 128 Kbit/sec. The question is whether your particular service in New Bern supplies / accepts IP packets with consistently low latency (i.e., delay).

You may find that the 1.5 MBit/sec service varies in quality by time of day.

Lastly, it is entirely possible to provide 1.5 MBit/sec service ON THE AVERAGE, yet deliberately provide latency variations in order to defeat VOIP devices. 1.5MBit/sec service is offered to lure users from dialup Internet access. Your ISP wants to up-sell you to quicker data service and to his own brand of VOIP.

If you already subscribe to 1.5 MBit/sec service, you can check http://myspeed.visualware.com for a ballpark idea of its suitability for VOIP.

Of course, $70 for the NetTalk Duo is a cheap experiment. You could just try 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.

When you get Nettalk you will set it up according to the given instructions, choose a new phone number and begin using your new phone service independent of your old phone company. I would recommend not canceling your old service for about a week, test out the Nettalk service and make sure that it works for you needs before canceling.

When you purchase NetTalk & go to register it with the usernamer/password that is given to you in the box it will ask you what area code would you like & if available they will give you 3 phone numbers with that area code to choose from. If you would like to know ahead of time before purchasing you can check the forum/comunity room NetTalk.com under questions/answers or you can call them directly to ask if your are code is available.(Oh I was told from NetTalk by chance if not available they could give an area code close to where one is & that upon oe becoming available at no charge to you switch your phone number also). Or you can look up there phone number there & call them direct.Hope it helps

You pick your new number from a list of available numbers listed on their website when you register your device. Easy instructions are in the box with the duo. Takes minutes to do. You don't have to cancel your other service until you get this one all set up. This has nothing at all to do with your old service. You could have them both if you desired.

When you sign up for NetTalk on the net you will be given a choice of the location you want your number to be from. You can choose where you live or any other place. Your choice will give you the area code and then you select your city exchange (the next 3 digits). The last four are assigned by NetTalk. The say they are working on allowing your existing phone to be moved.
You should buy your NetTalk first and get it running. Then shut off your phone service. Keep in mind that if you have a DSL service with that land line you will have to get a new internet service.

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.

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.

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.

ATT high speed internet wil work with the Nettalk Duo. If you have u-verse, the telephone is included. Nettalk is good for caller id and voicemail or fax at a cheap price. Nettalk would make a great second line.

It does for me, using one of the internet connections directly from the Uverse box. I tried spliting one of the connections using a Belkins router, could not get that to work with the NetTalk but I think that was more of a router issue. I never called the NetTalk customer service for help since it worked connecting it directly to my Uverse box

I have U Verse internet service and it works just fine. You just need a port in your router to plug it into.

I have Uniden phones and the caller's number just shows up on the phone. You can also log into your Nettalk account online and find out all the details of every call. I run all the phones (7) in my house and garage thru my regular phone lines.

Yes, you can hook up a caller id device. Yes, you can hook up the home phone jack; however, you will require knowledge on how to do that.

Caller ID is a standard feature in NetTalk Duo so if your phone has that feature, say goodbye to a caller ID unit.

I HAD verizon FIOS before and when I tried hooking up to phone line directly, it allowed outbound calls and if no activity for few minutes, sent all incoming calls to voice mail. See may detailed review. What I was planning to do was use a spliter and one goes to wall and other to a base unit of phone and see if that overcomes my issue. I can only vouch for Verizon FIOS lines

You do not need a computer at all - unless you want to. You can use a standard phone with caller id - so I do not see anything barring you technically from using a caller id device. Your home phone jack does not come into play. They do sell intelligent phone jacks (around $60-100) to plug into standard outlets, and this will do the trick for you. You generally hook this up to your cable/modem and/or router and then you plug a phone into it. Hope this helps some.

Hi:

I have had a nettalk for 3 weeks, plugged it into my houses phone line 2 jack (previosly disconnected the feed from the incoming cables) and it work perfectly all around my house in all the phone plugs.

My phones have built in caller id and I see the info each time a call comes in, so guess that is a yes for your calleerid question.

hope this helps.

1. You DO NOT have to have a PC for NT (netTALK); caller-ID is included with the NT service.

2. Yes, but only if you are using an ISP that DOES NOT depend on the pair of phone wires running throughout your home (e.g. cable companies like Time Warner Cable, etc.), AND you are dropping your POTS service completely; assuming BOTH of the afore-mentioned items are true, you SHOULD ALSO disconnect the phone line pair---on the telco side---from the pair running throughout your home; doing this will prevent any potential "signal" from your formerly-used telco provider from being imposed onto your home phone wiring, and to prevent any potential "signal" from the NT Duo being imposed onto your formerly-used telco provider.
