1. Hardware Required
The hardware needed should be easy to find on Ebay or Amazon.
1. UNLOCKED Cisco / Linksys SPA1001 FXS VoIP Phone Adapter (Try to find one that comes with a power adapter) - Other VOIP adapters may work but they have not been tested yet. As more are tested in the future I'll continue to add to a list of confirmed working VOIP adapters

3. VOIP Configuration - This Guide assumes you have a Linksys SPA1001 FXS VOIP Phone Adapter
1. You first need to login to your router and find out what IP Address your voip adapter was assigned.
2. In my case it was assigned 192.168.1.80, The device should also already be named "SipuraSPA" as seen in the screen shot below

4a. HOSTING A NETLINK GAME
1. Simply click on "Wait" , then you'll need to text message your opponent that you are ready for them to dial you. Thats it! You'll also have the option to practice while you wait for them to dial but I just hit no to make the connection processes faster.
4b. DIALING INTO A NETLINK GAME
1. You will need your opponents Public IP Address. If they followed this guide then their UserID will be 11 and port will be 5060. However these may very depending on what user SIP Port was entered.
to Dial you'll need to enter it in the following format
Example: If you both have followed this guide both your UserID's will be 11 and ports will be 5060. We'll assume the person you are dialing's public IP is 127.1.1.0
So you would enter 11*127*1*1*0*5060#
2. Dont hit "Dial" until your opponent is in "Wait" mode first. Once they text you they are in wait mode then simply hit dial.
3. Enjoy the game!
