Yes it works with DSL. When you receive your package in the mail, open it up and you will have three items: the USB plug-in device, a short USB extension cord to attach if it won't fit directly attached to the computer and a telephone cord. Plug the device into your computer's USB port and it will automatically start downloading and installing some software that you need to be able to make calls. During this process you will be asked which area code you prefer to use with your assigned phone number. You will also be asked for your address. This is for using the 911 option. Now all you need to do is to plug in any regular land line type phone into the device. The phone line that came with the device is best to use as it is recommended not to use a phone cord that is over 6 feet long. Thats it. Its really easy.

When you say DSL unit, you mean your modem? No, majic jack plugs into your computer, not a modem or router.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
