Is there an adapter to use a regular phone with Skype or Google Voice? I found this Dlink adapter but it is discontinued, any idea why? Will it still work in Canada and in the US? Any suggestions for other adapters?

Thank you very much!

Google Voice requires a separate phone number (mobile or landline) to work. You may be thinking about Google Chat. – RSMoser Nov 15 '10 at 0:07

Linksys SP2102 is the one my company provides for itsVoIP customers, but basically any analog to digital device will suffice. Should work in US and Canada fine, but I don't know how well any given adapter would work with skype.

Usually we use another VoIP company, but to convert «old» phones to IP, we use Linksys PAP2:

I dont know if they're available in your country, but give it a try.
