We are buying a GE wireless phone with a ekstra handset. But is it possible to connect one handset to the router and then use Skype on both handsets? Do you have to use a computer to skype with this?
You will have just one base station, and that is the only thing that connects to the router. No, you don't need to use a computer. Heck, you can even use the phone to set up a new Skype account, but it's more convenient to use a computer and its keyboard for that.
