The Linksys or Cisco Phone Adapter converts analogue voice signals into digital form. This means your voice signals can be transferred using the Internet often for free. The device therefore lets you make VoIP calls using your normal land-line phone sets with RJ11 connectors which are standard telephone plugs instead of a soft dialler. This can often enhance the quality of your VoIP calls or prove more convenient than using your laptop/PC to make calls
