Hi All. I am prabhakaran from Mumbai, india.
Recently I have purchased a broadband connection from Airtel (provider)
They have given me a landline connection as a combo without any telephone instrument (I am not looking for it either). Instead, I want to use my laptop as a phone. I know this is a very simple task to explain for Tech people like you all. let me tell my requirements step by step:
Just to make and receive calls through my laptop using that landline (currently offered an unlimited Local/STD calls)
Connect my Cell phone (Android lollipop) to the laptop and configure it to enable my mobile device to dial and receive the landline calls too.
Use the same broadband connection to remotely call (making calls only is enough if reception is bit difficult) through that landline using my mobile device.
What I think I need to buy to achieve this:
I know I have to buy some thing which will convert the analog telephone signals to a pc (Telephony interface card or a voice modem may be). I am sure a single port device will suffice this scenario. I have neither TIC or a Voice modem. So what should I buy? What are the next steps to achieve the above said thing?
I am a software Engineer by profession. So I believe I can understand the things tough advanced in explaining.
Thanks in advance.
