Magic jack is designed to plug-in to a usb port on a computer, then plug the phone into magic jack.

I have seen posts that some RGs have a USB port. If you have one you could try it to see if it works,

You may need to plug it in to a computer first to set it up. If it can process calls off the RG you would not need to leave your computer on.

If you have a usb poert on your RG, call magic Jack support & ask about it. If you do not have a usb port you do not have the opportunity to try it.

Although I don't have the service myself, it is my understanding that the MagicJack is connected directly to your computer via USB port--it would have nothing to do with your RG as far as I know.  I assume you do not have U-voice VOIP service.

docbombay - No problem - happens all the time. I am usually second.

silverfox1991 - If you want to plug into the RG - How about ooma? I think there are others, too.

Magic Jack Plus is operated by plugging the power mode into an outlet or extension. Magic Jack is then plugged into the USB receptacle on the power mode. You can plug in a USB cord from a router on one side and a telephone line plugs in next to it. The computer does not have to stay on as it did with the original version. It has excellent receptivity even on foreign calls. Great product.
