I can't get DSL service in my area. How can I use magic jack or nettalk DUO without DSL?

The answer is simply yes. Magic jack does not need this service nor does it use it to operate. However, you might need a regular phone or a cell phone to dial local numbers. Magic Jack now thinks that many local numbers are conference calls and requires that you to pay extra for that.

It depends on which version of the device you have. If you have the regular Magic Jack, then yes, you must keep your computer on to use it. If you are expecting a call, it cannot be off. If you have the Magic Jack Plus, then you only need to leave your router on, since it can plug into a network socket rather than just a USB port.

You do not need to run any wires. DSL connects directly to the phone jack. You run phone line from the phone jack to a filter, then to the DSL Modem. You can also install a filter at the interface to eliminate the need for filters inside the home. If you install interior filters, you will need one at each phone jack that is being used by any device. From the modem you can either run USB or Ethernet cable to the computer if the modem is a USB/Ethernet modem. I do not recommend USB. Use the Ethernet if at all possible. The connection is more stable and slightly faster. If your computer has no Ethernet connection, you can install an Ethernet card for as little as $20. Use a good quality Cat5 or Cat6 cable from the Modem to the computer.
