Can’t get a dial tone on a VoIP phone

I am trying to set up a VoIP system using a satellite/internet connection. I currently have a Linksys phone adapter router which will accept the signal. The problem is, I cannot seem to get a dial tone on the phone. Do I need to connect to another service provider? Should I get a new phone number? What are the other protocols involved?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Your best bet is to start a Skype account. In the upgraded account, it will cost $3 per month, and you are able to make unlimited calls throughout the US, if you are in the US. I use my account on a DSL 1.5mbps, and get great reception. It will cost $24 extra for a new portable number that has your area code, and if you have an analog phone, there is a device called ‘VoSKY’ which will convert VoIP digital to analog.

You can sign up for free on Skype, and make Skype to Skype calls for free. Also, you can IM. If you do so, search for new (add) contacts, and find my account (jospmoran). I will help you config your account.
