I am looking at using a DLink DVG1402S VOIP gateway on Telstra cable to connect my old cordless phone to make iTalk calls and also share the cable connection to several PCs.

Has anyone used one of these on iTalk. Can I just pick up the phone and call like I would on the phone line. Are there other devices that would do all these features. DLink's website says "All destination numbers must be registered with your internet telephony provider" which sounds like crap, the softphone just lets me dial straight away, surely this Dlink thing can authenticate with iTalk the way that X-Lite can.

Although I'm with Slingshot but I don't use their iTalk service (too expensive for my destinations). I'm using voxalot and betamax instead. So far no problem with my Dynalink RTA1046 VW and my dect cordless phone. Just pick up the phone an call wherever you like.

It arrived and I worked out how to configure it:
Click the VOIP button
Go to "Server Configuration" and enter the name of the proxy server in there somewhere.
Save that - don't reboot
Click the Back button
Click "User agent"
Enter the fields here the same as you would put them into X-Lite
Save, and then reboot.

Then you pick up your old analogue phone (Uniden WDECT 2300 cordless in my case) and you're ready to start making calls.
