    I've heard of them, and I'm pretty sure that they're available in most retail stores that sell electronics (at least hear in the states). I'll bet you can find one online, though I'm not sure where.

    Our local telecommunications company (also an isp) offers a software solution called Internet Call Director. Here's a short demo of it:

    Maybe your isp offers something similar?
