    If you look on voiptalk's web site they have something called a speedtouch
    1-port voip adaptor for around £15. The only catch I see is that you have to
    buy £10 of call credit as well. Even if i didn't use their service then the
    voip adaptor would still be cheap at £25.

    I had a quick scour round the newsgroups and forums and have only found good
    stuff about the voiptalk service. Does anyone have any thoughts? Is there a
    catch? As far as i can see the item isn't locked down either.

    It is a good deal but are speedtouch products any good I haven't seen
    any remarks about them good or bad .

  3. I think some of the speedtouch stuff has firewall issues i know a
    couple of people that have had grief with them and as for the price
    they are charging for them they must be locked to them or somthing or
    may be they got a batch that fell off the back of a lorry who knows :)

    The SpeedTouch 190 is not locked down to the VoIPtalk service and can
    be used with any SIP-compatible service provider.

    I'm a newbie when it comes to VOIP and have used Skype a fair bit.
    However, I'm looking to use Voip in the future and am interested in an
    ATA. Does this thing work with most Modem/Routers? I already have a
    router and am interested in adding a phone to a voip provider, but want
    to be assured that this thing is pretty standard.

    It looks rather cheap and nasty to me..... But i don't wish to get into
    any arguments.

    I like the linksys PAP2 myself

    Seeing that you have said it Sean I will admit I have a couple of
    Speedtouch 330 adsl modems here that have never been used because I
    also thought they looked cheap and nasty got them given to me very
    pleased I did not buy them:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))).

    I have the always used Speedtouch routers and recommended them to

    Touch wood, none of them have ever locked up. Basically, I have never
    had a problem with any of them - they have just worked.

    My current one is the 716g which is an ADSL router modem with built in
    wireless and a built in ATA with 2 ports.

    Does this particular speedtouch work independently of any PC, and
    connect independently, as long as a modem/router are on?

    If you are talking to me, the linksys is nothing to do with speedtouch

    Does this particular speedtouch work independently of any PC, and
    I think most VoIP adaptors work like that, you connect them to the
    router and only use the PC to configure them.
