a "VOIP modem" just refers to an ADSL modem with integrated voip adapter
, aka ATA. The ATA allows you to plug in a regular analog phone.
If you use you computer instead, you dont need any special hardware.
Ekiga: there is ekiga the program, and ekiga the service, two different
things. You don't need the service.
> So, could someone please clarify what difference VOIP makes,
"voip" just means any voice over internet. e.g. skype, SIP, google-talk.
> whether it is needed for video phone calls, compared with "standard"
> ADSL and ADSL2?
I'd suggest you just use Skype, and save a lot of frustration.
