VoIP Solution. Linksys emerged again as the front-runner for the Best VoIP Solution award, this time more handily, with its Linksys Phone Adapter with 2 Phone Ports (PAP2). The PAP2 enables high-quality, feature-rich telephone service through your cable or DSL Internet connection. Just plug it into your home router or gateway and use the two standard telephone jacks to connect your existing phones or fax machines. Each phone jack operates independently, with separate phone service and phone numbers—it's like having two phone lines. You get clear telephone reception and reliable fax connections even while simultaneously using the Internet for normal data operations. With Internet telephony, along with low domestic and international phone rates, an impressive array of special phone features is available. You can choose your preferred free local-dialing US area code, regardless of where you live. Or you can add a virtual phone number in any area code, forwarded to your Internet phone. The Linksys PAP2 is compatible with these and all of the other special telephone features—caller ID, call waiting, voicemail, call forwarding, distinctive ring, and so on—that your telephone service provider offers.
