Thanks for your reply, but it seems that i led you to the wrong way, sorry.

I have no VOIP, it is a normal Phone.

logically speaking, there is a splitter to split the voice signal from the digital signal before each go to it's designed device, but can I in a way or another record telephone calls on Computer?

I have Windows XP.

Look here :

more info :

but the main point is imho that you need to do it over a modem, not over ADSL, since it does not come in the PC.
One way i know of is to use a separate hardware phone recorder, and copying the "tape" as a wav file to your PC, like these :

Since you tap the phone from the ADSL, you cannot do it otherwise to my knowledge.

No, i don't think, but you can use another dial-up modem to do that.

no you need to create a source which in this case should be a standard modem.

if you do'nt create a source it can't be done.

let me get this right,

I plus the ADSL to the PC, and link the Modem with the eithernet ? and then record using the MODEM.
or do you mean i have to link the net using the modem?

you need to have the phone lin plugged into the modem and the telephone hooked up.

then you need a recording software such as modemspy or whichever you decide.

after installing the program you just follow instructions.

oh,
i c what you mean.

Well, the idea is that when i used to use the modem to dial-up internet, i was using modemspy to record telephone calls.

but when i moved to ADSL, i cannot anymore, i have the PC far away from the Phone plug, and i am connecting it using the direct link (10 Meters long) from the ADSL modem to the PC, I am not putting another cable from the phone to the PC, unless that is the only way to do it, i thought i can use the ADSL cable already linked to the PC, is that possible?

No, it is not possible because the telephone signal is splitted before, it is sent just to the telephone line, and internet signal is sent to the ADSL modem. The telephone signal in your case is not a Voice over IP signal, it is an analogic one that can only be precessed by an analogic modem (not digital ADSL modem)

IN ANOTHER TRAIN OF THOUGHTS, you can use PC to make phone calls over internet, such way you could record them without any other dial-up modem.
