About the InternetPhoneWizard Available as either an internal PCI card or external USB peripheral, the InternetPhoneWizard offers an unprecedented combination of features that make Internet calling easier and better than ever. The InternetPhoneWizard allows callers to continue to use their favorite wired or portable telephones to place either conventional analog calls or Internet phone calls to any phone around the world. To use the InternetPhoneWizard callers simply pick up the phone and dial -- just as they always have -- to place a long distance call for the price of a local call! For callers who use a broadband connection to the Internet like DSL or have two phone lines in their home, the InternetPhoneWizard will allow them to easily switch back and forth between calls by simply hitting the # key twice. This is made possible by using Actiontec's patent-pending I-Phone Switch Technology.
