I'd like to transform my 2611 into a voice gateway and I'm a little confused as to what I need to make this happen. I know that once I have an analog/pots line coming into my house I need a router with a DSP to transition between analog and voip. If I buy a NM-2V and drop in a 2FXO and 2FXS VIC card(s) will that handle the DPS? If I take one of my current empty expansion slots and place in a 2FXO (without the NM-2V) will that give me DPS alone? Also, when I run "dial?" in global config I don't even have a dial-peer option. Does this mean that I will need a entirely new versoin of IOS or does it somehow "unlock" that function once it recognizes it has the resources to do it?
Really noob questions I know, but when I query google with things like, "no dial-peer in IOS" you get results about how dial-peers work. It's not really too helpful because I'm understanding that, now I want to practice. Just looking for some beginner friendly help.
Thanks for reading!

A more affordable solution is to convert your phone into SIP and use Asterisk as your call server. You can host the Asterisk program in a Raspberry Pi (US$45) or a Beagle Bone (US$55). Asterisk is free CLI-based call server. You can use either Trixbox or FreePBX and you can use Asterisk in GUI.
When I look on eBay I can get a NM-2V with a 2FXO and 2FXS for around $100. If that is all I need (no new version of IOS) then I don't know about you, but I would not call that expensive. I know that I'll need to subscribe to a pots line, but around here thats ~$30 /month which wouldn't bother me either. I'm not rich, but for a married guy with dual income... this is small price to pay for lab work/testing/just plain fun (I've asked for ALOT more from my wife before, as I'm sure must of us here have). Is there something that I am not accounting for? I appreciate the Asterisk suggestion, but I'm staying in the cisco world here.
lol. Thanks Leo, kinda thought so. Lets keep it going for the educational sake of it. How can I tell from the names of the IOS versions which include voice functions? Also aside from that, concerning the other part of my question would I still need a NM-1Vor2V for DSP or could an FXO card by itself provide that service?
When I bought my "CCNA kit" and I enabled NAT/PAT and started getting crazy memory errors. When I contacted the reseller he gave me a different version of IOS to try. I loaded it (this was months ago when I first started in IOS) and I remembered seeing commands that I didn't understand. It was missing the crypto option so I emailed him back and he gave me another version which worked fine.
With all this in mind I reloaded that second version that I had thinking that it had voice stuff it in, and magically, I now see dial-peers in global config
The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
answer. Be sure to read the whole thing or e...
