PC to landline via modem?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This seems like it should be a ridiculously simple issue to resolve, yet I've turned up nothing.

All of my PC's have modems in them. I have a nice headset I would like to make phone calls with. So; it would seem that I just download a program that bridges the gap between the phone line plugged into my modem and the headset, but I can't dig up anything.

Is this even possible? What I'm not going to do is go out and pay for VOIP service or Skype when my landline phone service works fine and I have modems in all my computers.

Mmm... digging around in my ancient brain.

I think this depends on the modem's capabilities. Check if the modem has speaker phone capabilities. If so, it should have the appropriate drivers. The modem needs to have the hardware to function as a phone.

I'm not sure how to do it, but I can at least vouch that it's possible. I remember being at my granpa's house when I was younger and calling my mom on his computer with the modem, and thinking that was so cool.
