I have cable, so I don't know. If you have call waiting and a modem that supports the v.92 protocol, and your ISP supports it too, you don't need any extra equipment. With v.92, when you receive a call online, you can switch over to the other line to answer, this will put your modem on hold, and when you're done you switch back over and continue browsing.
Learn from the mistakes of others, you won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.

Hi Julian - We used a service called Callwave. I think setting up the service was the first thing my son did the day he came home from rehab. Check it out at Callwave.com. We had the charges come through our local phone bill. Only just stopped using it because we got a DSL hookup.
