Summary: Thsi product is outdated which I didn't know when I purchased it There isno online support for it anymore. It will not work for me on my Vista comp or Windows 7.I had to hook it up to my Widnows Xp cop to make it work. Not pleased at all about this. Guess I'll do my homework next time. The service from the seller is great. Fast delivery. I would by from them again.
Summary: I never got it work work. Too bad I did not do enough homework before buying this Skype adapter. Support was dropped by D-Link a couple of years ago and it does not work with 64-bit Windows7. I got the USB Skype Adapter and it works fine. It looks very generic, but does the job.
Summary: Well packed and everything was in the box. Plugged it in, worked like a charm, 15 minutes later we had our cordless phone hooked up and we were connected to SKYPE. Never a hiccup in the whole shipping or setup process - or since in operation.
Making sense of the conflicting reviews (worth reading)

Summary: I don't usually write reviews but I think this one will be helpful. This device is good but the software is problematic (hence the mixed reviews) . For example, it will not work with Skype 4 or with Win XP service pack 2 & 3 (and I'm not sure if it would work with Vista service 2 & 3). However, if you have windows 7, I would recommend this device if you install it properly.
Good way to use cordless phones to dial landline and Skype out
6 January 2010
Summary: Use this product is an effective way to use Skype convinently and integate with landline phones. Pros: 1. Simply said, it works. 2. Integrate with landline usage (directly dialing with landline and use pre and post-fix to dial with Skype). 3. If hooked up with a multihand set cordless phone system, can provide service to the whole house (some said DECT phone may not work for this purpose). Cons: 1. Installation is a bit tricky.
I concur with the other victims who bought this device

Summary: I will make try to this short. Nothing in the Universe can repay me for the agony and defeat I have experienced in trying to use this device. One reviewer said it does not work with 64 bit operating systems. This is very true and I may add that it will not work with any version or flavor of Linux either. Nor will it work adequately enough to feel like you are getting your money's worth with the older than a Decade old Windows XP.
Summary: A complete disaster of a product. No current support from DLink for this product and installation on XP SP3 was a nightmare. It does not work. It is no wonder many of the major online merchants do not stock it anymore ( i think it will soon be a discontinued product). I wasted my money on it. I am researching the similar ZOOM voip adaptor to replace the piece of useless plastic i just bought!
Summary: I read the other reviews and was annoyed to find that the one I ordered from Bestbuy (Sept. 2009) was the first version of the hardware with the first version of the software. When plugged in, it never turned on. If you buy this and intent to use it on any modern computer, make sure it is NOT H/W version A1 before buying. Later versions of this might have worked, but this one never even lit up. Beware!
