How can I conventional phone calls from my computer by using my cable modem,
without going through a website?



Re: Making Phone Calls


I am a convert to VOIP. Here in Topeka our cable service has high
speed internet and phone service. Your standard phone just plugs into
the same cable modem as your computer uses. This box is made by Arris
and is a telephone telephony modem. The box also has capability for a
fax machine or a second phone line. I am not sure whether the whole
COX network has phone service or if they are using Topeka as a testing
ground. Last I knew Time Warner was trying the same thing.

TimeWarner offers TW DigitalPhone(VOIP) since last fall in this area (NW
Ohio).  I've seen several VOIP cablemodems installed in this neighborhood.  
I have the Motorola SBV5220 Surfboard model.  It also has the two phone
line ports in the back.  However, TW at this time is only offering one line
capability with the possibility of enabling the second as a different
number later.  Fax works fine here over it.  Unlimited LD both intrastate
and nationally as well as several US territories and Canada 24/7 are
included as are several extra cost features when I had Verizon.  Right now
I'm paying @24.95 per month and am quite happy with it.

There is provision for two backup batteries in the case, but TW didn't
install any.  Their logic is that the cable network would be down in the
event of a power outage.  I have it plugged into a UPS as it is.  I also
have cellphones.

TW does handle their VOIP offering slightly differently than Vonage or
others.  TW Cable handles the call until it reaches a switching station,
and then the call is handed off to another regular phone service to finish
it like it would be when using Verizon POTS.  I'm not sure of the company
that does handle it under contract for TW.

The nice part is that the phone line gets a separate IP and doesn't share
bandwidth with my RoadRunner IP at all.

I know that Sprint has a contract with TW to do what you mentioned
above, but I don't know if it's an exclusive contract, so it may vary
from one area to another.

I'm pretty sure Sprint handles the connection across the entire TW
network. They did in NYC as well.

Perhaps you can hook me up with a good source for Hashish? When I was
in college the best hash came from Nepal. Is that still your chief
export?

    Perhaps you'd get more replies if you explained what
you mean by "going through a website".
