I've used a SPA3000. There seems to be a later model from Linksys, 
hopefully it works better. I had some severe echo problems due to my 
distance from the CO. The SPA3000 never could seem to compensate. The 
older software worked better, but it never passed muster with the wife. 
Went to a Digium TDM11B, no problems.

There are plenty of mini-howtos on the web to set up a SPA3000. If you 
are close to your CO and the price is right, give it a try. I think I 
read somewhere that at up to 7000 feet between the CO and the SPA 
acceptable results are possible. I'm at about 18000 feet.
