Question about SKYPE / VOIP to PSTN (RJ11) Phone USB Adapter (POTHVOIPUSB3)
I have a Zoom 5900 phone adapter for Skype. The software is installed
OK and Skype works through the mic+speakers. The Zoom is supposed to
enable me to use my normal phone for both land line calls and Skype.
When connected it cannot send or receive either on the land line or
I previously tried a US Robotics adapter, but that didn't work - same symptoms.
Is there some setting on my computer that is wrong, or do these adapters not work with up-to-date Skype versions?
Any help would be appreciated.
For zoom adapter, calling with handset
Dial 011+1+(zip and number) followed by *
This is for u.s. calls, just change the country code to the one you need, if not u.s. call.

Well here's a sticking point with the Zoom adapter. You have to initiate (dial) the call through the Skype keypad - you can't just pick up the phone and dial. No matter what your computers settings are, because your phone's dailpad only recognizes a dial tone, but there is no dial tone. It's VOIP. But you should have no problems with incoming calls. I have three mobile base stations (cordless phones) and all ring and I can pick up all incoming calls anywhere. I have an answering machine hooked up as well and everything works flawlessly. But again to call out I have to input the number through the Skype program at my computer. For me, a small inconvience for the buckets of money I save with the Skype service. I probably save in two or three days days enough to pay for the service for a full year! And the call quality is as good as a landline.

what you have is usualy called a dual phone
When connecting a dual phone for using skype and the normal land line with the computer we have this common problem that you have.
Usualy the problem is with the audio setting.
go to option on the skype window , ther go to audio setting and there you have to choose both for speakers and mic the actual dual phone that you have .
to use skype from your computer you will have to change this setting again - to your audio card installed on your computer.
