Hi Sam

We are using VoIP REASONABLY successfully. The big challenge is line quality.

Re your question about hardware:
Firstly, have you looked at options other than a handset which plugs directly into your computer? (I’m assuming this is the issue since you’re asking about compatibility with a Mac/PC.)

You can get VoIP enabled routers with a phone socket. This means you can use any standard handsets – no need for VoIP ones.

The other option is network enabled handsets. We are using NetComm V85 handsets which plug into the network and so have nothing to do with the PC/Mac issue. The configuration is managed through a web browser. These start at around $140.

Check out http://www.shopbot.com.au for comparative prices.

Happy to help if you have more VoIP questions.

Regards
Laurence
