Aah. Yes, you’ll need a FXO card.
I only have one line and virtually no budget for this, so I don’t think any Digium card will work. At this point, I’m looking at one of the various Ethernet routers/channel banks that will act as a SIP endpoint - I know there’s a Linksys in the $100 range, and that’s about the most I can pay…[/quote]
Yes, I’m afraid Digium’s solution will be a little more than $100. You could get the 4-port card but only buy 1 interface…but the cost will still be substantially higher.
There are ways to do it…if you search long and hard enough, you’ll find the information you need. But it takes a sale away from Digium, so I cannot, in good conscience, support it.
Linksys, to my knowledge, does not make a FXO device…most of their stuff is ATAs for FXS or IP phones. You don’t need a SIP endpoint…you need an analog trunk interface.
