ATA recommendations ?

I'm looking for an ATA easy to set-up for Sipgate to be connected via Plusnet's TG582n router. Although not necessarily easy to set-up looking at some reviews, this one from Amazon would fit the very top end budget wise ;

Any better or cheaper alternatives ?

Probably several other alternatives, but you might like to look at the Gigaset IP range, eg Gigaset N300-IP (without built-in answerphone) or N300A-IP (with answerphone), these can often be picked up on eBay for £30 - £40.
They are a combined DECT/VoIP base-station which connects to your router as expected via an ethernet cable, and into which you can also plug your landline.
They can handle up to 6 VoIP/SIP accounts, with easily programmable dialplan facilities to handle best/least-cost call routing and call-blocking, and can handle up to 4 simultaneous calls (3 VoIP plus 1 landline).  They have several other desirable features such as transferring your phone directory from 1 handset to any other, something that I particularly like as I've been pee'd off with the lack of that facility on other DECT sets I've owned in the past!
Although you can register any GAP compatible DECT handset for basic purposes such as making calls, to take full advantage of all the facilities the base station offers it would be necessary to purchase Gigaset handsets (up to 6 handsets can be registered to the N300-IP).

Re: ATA recommendations ?

Been looking at the N300-IP for a while myself to replace a WI-FI phone that has terrible firmware.
That said I don't make that many calls on the Voip line due the absurd amount of "inclusive" minutes I get on the mobile.

Hi
Look at http://www.grandstream.co.uk
These guys are experts when it comes to voip phones and they are better quality than the amazon one.  They will just plug in to your router
