    Not sure where to go with this

    What I have :

    3cx PBX with 1 SIP Line on a PC
    3cx Extensions on Mobile
    a PSTN Landline on a DECT phone setup
    &
    A Skype line to PC / Laptop used with Headset


    What I want

    SKYPE ->
    PSTN -> pbx system -> DECT Phones round house
    SIP Line ->


    The old dect system ( PSTN ) is knackered and needs replaced

    So do I buy a Linksys 3102 Gate way thing and some new Normal Dect Phones
    DO I but a N300IP and Bundle of Gigaset A510H phones

    or

    Something elese



    This is a home system to be purchased and based in UK.

    If you are going to be using the BT landline (PSTN) then you will need a gateway of some sort. The SPA3102 will do the job and give you a single line ATA as well. That ATA (FXS port) is where you can plug in your DECT phone.

    Skype can be brought in as a trunk using the 3CX Skype gateway and you can still use a 3CX phone on your laptop if desired.

    I have no pobs getting the SIP & the Skype into 3cx its making calls on a real Dect hand set rather than the soft phone that is the bit I cant get my head round.

    How do I link a Dect Phone to 3cx ?

    If you are talking about an analogue DECT phone (the type you would use buy at Dixons to use directly with a regular BT landline), then you need an ATA (Analogue telephone Adapter). There are a number of makes/models to choose from , single line, two line, and up. If you need to bring A BT PSTN line in to 3CX (as a trunk), you will also need a Gateway, and, as I've said, the 3102 has both a gateway, and an ATA, in one box.

    If you just need an ATA, for the DECT set, then there are less expensive alternatives.
