You can certainly use the RT-AC router, it works much better than any comcast gateway,
you can try to use your SIP device with some free phone service like google voice.
It is harder to configure than some choices http://www.amazon.com/GrandStream-HT286-Analog-Tel
If you can get google voice to work you can avoid paying for comcast voice, though it is not expensive in triple play.
Try using it with google voice

Here is something else I found under free sip phone
Here are a bunch of free sip providers, which should work with ipkall, and your sip phone. http://voip.about.com/od/sipandh323/tp/Free-Sip-Pr

Thanks so much for your replies. I take it there isn't a simple adapter that Comcast would provide if I did want to get their service and keep my other equipment. I thought the Motorola 6141, since it was on their approved list for eMTA, would have worked fine with the ATA. If there is an adapter, and I only wasn't able to use the ATA, I'd rethink the options since that was only about $30.
Thank you again and I will look into the links you provided.

comcast uses cable voice which is not the same as sip and needs a special emta
CHeck with your local office if they allow purchase, easiest is to purchase from best buy if you want to buy an emta
then it will be setup properly.
Comcast uses the Arris tm722g and Arris tm822g modems, or the Arris tg862 gateway which is a horrible wireless router. So if you want a modem that you can own that will work with voice you need to get one of those kind that they sell, at the best buy. Some people have bought these in other places and got them connected, but it is somewhat of a hassle to get it setup. Supposedly if the best buy way is best.
However since you have your sip gadget you might try getting it to work with some free voice in the mail and report back to us whether it works ok or not.
