Hearing skype ringing when i am out of the room? Answered

how could i make a simple systems ( with out to much electronics knowledge - but able to solder) a system that either alerts me out of the computer room when my skype is rining or does so and lets me take the call away from the computer - ie a normal portable handset ..?



There are internet-based skype handsets that you can plug into your home network, and it talks to your skype account... Someone has probably built a handset box. Anyone know if skype offers a voip box that connects to the home's phone circuitry?

hi - thanmks for that since found out you could get those phones... and some providers of DSL in my area do infact have voip boxes... not sure if it applies to you though
