My personal experience has been that the ATA provides far superior call quality compared to using softphones (including both X-Lite and Skype) even when the softphones are used with a top quality headset (Plantronics GameCom Pro1).
I'm using a Sipura ATA-3000 with blueface's service.
If you would like Cork numbers to be dialed as a local number with blueface (i.e. without having to dial the area code) try:
This will pre-append 021 to all seven digit numbers starting with 2-9 (i.e. a local number)
Note: I haven't yet tested this last suggestion however according to the manual it should work.
I told no-one, and during calls no-one commented on line or call quality - that was the litmus test for me
Of course, now I'm telling anybody who will listen
...Cablesurf, Dungarvan (9Mbit/512Kbit)...
The only thing is I am not happy is with my headset/mic. They really sux. Wanna get sthing better but not sure whether VoIP phones or just bluetooth headset/dongle combi. Feel free to suggest. My budget is tight, €100 is max!

The only quality issue I have noticied is when I am doing a bittorrent. I running the 3.03.6 firmware with QoS on the router, however many calls still go straight to voicemail when I'm am doing a bittorrent. Maybe when NTL up the bandwidth this problem will go away.
Does the Sipura 2100 work as a router also?
My current setup is
NTL > Cheap Router > PC/Xbox
would I be better going
NTL > Cheap Router > 2100/PC/Xbox
or NTL > 2100 > Switch > PC/Xbox
try NTL > Switch/Router > PC/XBOX/2100
i guess it should be alrite
NTL > Switch won't work, that's why I have a router. Does the 2100 do NATing or should I continue to use my router for that?
I think that makes sense. I wont be able to fully follow until I have the 2100 infront of me.
Does the 2100 have WAN and LAN connections or just one connection?
I was thinking BB > WAN; LAN > Switch
is that possible?
While the Plantronics headset is very good, I've just broken a second one. For some reason the microphone keeps going.
I don't use Skype or anything else for POTS calls. I have a landline so I don't see the point with VoIP. The quality is more reliable using the landline and I don't need to buy lots of strange VoIP equipment and the call cost is the same. I only use Skype with other Skype users. The quality varies significantly.
