My first question is why are you wanting to use Skype.
1. You particularly want to call people on it that are not available
on a standard landline phone.
2. You think, mistakenly, that 'Skype out' is cheap.
If it is (2) then go for an ATA that uses SIP, such as a Linksys
SPA-3102, and connect a standard cordless phone to it. Alternatively
you could get a SIP phone but I think the former is a better option.
There are many SIP providers to choose from and they are far cheaper
than Skype. If you want more info./advice then just ask.
