skype here piped through a dlink router and then the rest of the phones
in the house.  works well for me, been using it for about 3 years. calls
use to drop a lot in the beginning, but havent had a drop in cant
remember how long now..... ill put it this way, my cell drops more
often.  only thing that sucks is the software only runs on windows, so
its set up on my sons only windows box in the house.  sent countless
emails to dlink and skype to open source the drivers or port the
software to linux, but they both refuse.
