The easiest way to set up VOIP is to simply download software and use a computer-based VOIP plan like Skype, or the talk services from MSN, Google, Yahoo or AOL. All you need to do is plug in a headset or microphone and you're ready. With a phone-based plan, the easiest way to set up your service is to use an adaptor -- almost always supplied by the provider. Just plug your phone into the adapter and the adapter into your cable or DSL modem. Setting up, or building onto, a data network is more complicated. It can be done by anyone with some basic tech knowledge. If not, you'll need some help so it's best to hire a professional.
