created a pdf tutorial on how I was able to get the Magic Jack to work after six months of research and a great loss of some much needed rest. Please click the link below to view my tutorial on how to configure your Magic Jack for use on Linux. I would appreciate input on this and for others to verify my findings for extra assurance. Thanks.

I use a Linksys telephone adapter rather than "Magic Jack".
It connects direct to my router [which then connects to the internet via the modem]...
Doesn't need the PC running to function...
Or ANY OS [Puppy?]
Just needs the router and modem to be powered-on.
The quality of the "internet phone" setup [wireless handsets in use] isn't as good as the wired Virgin phone line.
I tried swapping the phones around [wired versus wireless phones], but it made no difference to the relative quality; anything connected to the wired phone line sounded better than whatever was connected to the web via the internet phone adapter and router and modem.
