ok here’s what I’m trying to do.
I currently don’t have home phone service but I would like to sign up for a voip service that allows me to make outgoing calls to regular/mobile phones and allows me to receive calls. I have 2 PCs at home and both are running gentoo linux. I don’t have any windows boxes so I can’t use any hardware that doesn’t have a unix driver. what I would like to do is get a card that will allow me to hook up my regular 900mhz cordless phones (analog phones) to make and receive calls. any recommendations on hardware? Also would I be able to see caller-id information on my phone if it is hooked up in this way? Will I be able to dial out using the number pad on the phone or will I have to dial out using a soft phone? any recommendations on voip providers?
sorry for all the questions… I am extremely new at this 8)
