So I got PBX in a Flash installed with Asterisk on a little home computer (trust me…it was a huge deal for me because it my first time using linux! :mrgreen: )
Now that I have asterisk installed, I wanted to know the different hardware components that would be needed to send/receive calls.
I have a headset that connects to my mic/ear phone inputs on my computer…could I use that to make calls?
I also have a basic usb phone that I used to use for skype. It has a number pad on it…could I use that to make calls?
Do I need to have any special pci cards in order to make VoIP calls? All I have right now is an ethernet card…if that is sufficient, it would be great news to learn that the ethernet card is all I need.
I know that I need a VoIP provider. I have found BroadVoice, and it looks like they even have a page on how to configure Asterisk. I’m just tinkering right now, so as long as the prices aren’t outrageous, any provider that can get the service turned on quickly is a bonus.
I guess my questions boil down to…I have a usb phone, a computer setup with Asterisk, high speed DSL, and will be getting a VoIP provider. Is there anything else I need?
