That device looks like it sits between your phone and a network
connection to the internet.  If you have a modem/router you don't even
need a computer.  It's a stand-alone device, a network device in itself.

If you don't have a modem/router, then you'd need to use a computer to
share the internet connection between itself and the ATA, much the same
way as you share the internet between more than one PC.

That's a software phone.  You use your computer for VOIP, with whatever
sound devices are plugged into it (mic, speakers, headphones, etc.).

(Currently testing FC5, but still running FC4, if that's important.)
