    Ok Guys, here is my question. I have vonage as my phone service. Is there a way I can get caller ID over my PC even though vonage is my provider?

    My setup is a regular phone line from verizon (that is a different phone number) connected to my westell DSL modem. The modem connects to my router. My vonage phone line then connects from my router to my phone.

    I plan on putting a dialup modem inside my PC. In the back of my router there are 2 ports for phone, 1 which connects to my vonage phone. If I connect a line from the other phone port on the back of my router to the internal dialup modem on my PC will I be able to se phonetray and get caller ID over my PC? If I can't use 2nd port on my router, could I use a splitter on my 1st port and run that to the dialup modem in my PC?

    If someone could let me know this I would really appreciate it.

    thx
