Windows 7: Anyone with MagicJack experience ?

Thank you Laith and GokAy.

When i had DSL i had a splitter on the phone jack that split the signal for phone / internet, if that's what you mean by filter.
With Uverse i don't have those splitters.

If the DSLAM device is the "switch box" in my neighborhood, yes they did change the port for me, more than once i believe.

I have the phone jack on one side of the room and the internet (gateway) jack on the other side of the room.
From what i learned i need to get a phone jack next to the gateway (router) as magic jack needs to connect to both.
That's some re-wiring i'll have to somehow do.

I get about 350 TV channels and probably don't use more than 20.
I pay for 12Mbps Down / 1.5Mbps Up, although lately I'm getting 15 down / 2 up.
Unlimited internet and phone usage.

Yes, splitter forgot the proper term. But it is only good for DSL, and DSLAM I know is used in DSL infrastructure. No idea what it would be called in, say, cable. Your connection is cable now? I guess I was fooled to believe you had DSL from the screenshot in post #8.

DavidE -- I have been thinking about switching from the Dish Network to AT&T. I already have AT&T internet and phone so I would qualify to the Triple Play. -- I saw all of the specials on the AT&T website. They never did list the normal price. Is your bill above the normal with no specials or anything. I am guessing it probably is as $200 is about what I pay now for the Dish and my AT&T phone and internet combined. Thanks,

I don't quite understand.

You are using a smartphone and have a ethernet only router?

Hi Jim,
Yes, those are normal prices, no specials/discounts/etc.
They use to have normal prices listed on the website.
I looked, and just like you, i couldn't find the normal prices now.

If you have inside wiring maintenance on at&t, I can't remember what it called. There is a certain type of box they may need to be added to your phone line if you have an old landline line system but I can't remember what it is called. I am assuming uverse uses the phone line to deliverer the internet signal.

The box is used to determine what the phone company responsible for and what you are responsible for. The box could be on the inside but they usually put it on the outside. You would actual be able to test this at the box yourself to see if it the inside wiring or the outside wiring by plugging a landline phone in.

MagicJack
Windows 7 is unable to run a MagicJack. When installing the driver it is recognized under the heading of "software and games" of which it is neither. Sure wish Windows 7 was smart enough and had a category for "internet telephone service".
