    Hello Group
    Firstly, thanks for all the comments and helpful replies to my post last
    week - Thats it now!!

    Well, I'm ready to go with my PAP2T from Broadband Buyer and I've chosen
    Voipfone for simplicity.

    I was setting up equiment last night, but the cable kept coming out of my
    router and the modem one is broken too (they both work but fail to click in
    as the ends have broken) I need some new RJ45 leads, but do I need the
    crossover type or what?
    TIA again
    Chris.

    From a router to an ATA normal straight-through cables will do. You only
    need crossover cables when directly connecting two computers.

    Voipfone are considerably more expensive than the Betamax companies,
    for example, but a good service I think. The incoming call provision
    is good. From what I remember they have a nice English, as distinct
    from American, voice on the voicemail etc., as well as a 1471 feature,
    which is not available on any other provider I've come across.

    To go from router to ATA, just standard leads.

    I use them for all incoming calls (2 lines) and all outgoing calls not
    covered by or more expensive than voipcheap.com (0800, 0870, 0500 etc)
    also.... mobile dial back is great on a PAYG and ##166 telesales is
    sooooo much fun.

    Nearly. You need a crossover - serial or network - if you are connected
    two units of the same type. So PC-PC yes, but also modem to modem,
    router to router etc albeit many types (especially laptops and routers)
    these days are self setting.

    Note also a crossover cable only crosses (or technically only <needs> to
    cross) pins 1 & 2 with 3 & 6 - it is not a mirror image connection.

    Or two routers,
    or two switches,
    or a router and a switch

    (all of the above are assuming at least one of the devices does not have
    auto cross-over)

    I have a cheap Conexant EpicRouter (badged Sweeks) that was supplied
    with a straight cable, but all four ports only work when connected to
    NICs using crossover cables. Never understood why.
