Inexpensive, easy to install and simple-to-use, the SPA2102 connects a standard telephone or fax machine to IP-based data networks.

After reading a few online reviews, I selected a highly rated provider who offered unlimited incoming calls for about $5 / month and outgoing calls for less than a penny / minute. Following their instructions, I was up and running in 5 minutes flat, placing my first phone call, and checking incoming calls with my existing landline. I will be porting my landline number shortly and give up Bell altogether.
The device sits behind my router with no performance degradation. There is no echo or clipping and the voice quality is excellent. It is best to keep the VOIP adapter separate from your router, as combo devices do not do routing well. Note however that you might be able to install Asterisk on such devices.
Though some providers offer this device claiming that it is unlocked, I prefer to buy it brand new (and obviously unlocked) and shop for VOIP service separately. I recommend this approach to anyone, whether it is VOIP or cell service you are shopping for.
This is an excellent device for VOIP first-timers. Note however that the unit does not support either the fax (T.38) or high-definition (G.722) voice codecs.
I sell mine preconfigured so it is just a simple plug and play but even for a novice this is pretty easy to setup.
Supported by nearly all voip service providers and offers 2 phone lines, custom ring tones and a1 port router that works very well if needed.
Calls are crisp and clear with no chatter or lag, fax abilities if needed. My only gripe is it never holds the time and date should you unplug the device.
Call quality is superb and the interface to put in my settings is extensive to say the least.
There are 2 phone line ports on the back with each one having its own voip configuration capabilities which gives the user a ton of options for configuring voice options.
There are screen shots of the interface here;
I used this link to set the router and just subbed in my settings provided by freephoneline.ca and the router worked like a charm in under 5 minutes.
In this case is better to use your own router.
My only complaint is that you CANNOT update the device firmware from a Windows7 machine. I had to use my old Windows XP to perform the update.
Phone call quality is mostly good despite having limited QoS control. When you take the savings into account though, it's hard to beat moving to VoIP.

The product is just as advertised and in perfect working order. The only thing I can criticize is the expedited shipping to Hamilton, ON took just over 10 days!Published 11 months ago by Fred Wimmershoff
