Connect remote computer to my AP using dial up modem

My mother in law has no way to get email because she can't afford to pay for an isp. I have an access point a few miles away at my house. Is there a way to connect a dial up modem to one of the ethernet ports of my router/switch so that she can call my number with her computer and get to the internet throught my access point? She doesn't want to browse the internet or anything, just download her email.

    Thanks but I think the entire country is aware that I can pay for a dial up ISP for my mother in law. I didn't ask for alternate solutions, I asked how to create a setup for example using something like a Lantronics UDS-100 between my POTS modem and my switch so that a remote user can dial up my house with her modem and connect to my switch. If you are not able to help me do this, please don't bother to answer.

My mother-in-law comes over to much too. HaHa. you would have to set up a point to point if you can see her. It cost way more to do that or setup a isp dialer hub. Just get her a 9.99 a month dial-up and don't tell her. or save e-mails to a thumb drive she could take with her.

Can you help me connect my Zonet Wireless AP Router ZSR2104WE now that I have purchased a new modem (Motorola DSL Modem 3360)?


You must hook these particular items up in a specific sequence. First power down both the modem and the router, only connect the modem to the isp until all appropriate lights on on. Next plug cat 5 to router where it is labeled internet or wan if neither label then to #1. until alights come up on router. Hope this helps.

Internet speed not as indicated by modem


problem occurs usually after upgrade of internet speed. contact your ISP again, ask them to check for latency or dropped packets within their network. they need to run a traceroute from their end and it would also be better if you can run a traceroute from your end. also run a speedtest through speedtest.net or speakeasy.net. There's also a possibility that the modem is becoming faulty. If your ISP provided you the modem it's still best to contact them for possible replacement.

Scenario 2 to 4: Scenario 2) The modem does not have an Ethernet port. The modem is a dial-up modem for traditional dial-up service. To use the Router, you need a cable/DSL modem and high-speed Internet connection.

Scenario 3) You cannot use the DSL service to connect manually to the Internet.
After you have installed the Router, it will automatically connect to your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you no longer need to connect manually.

Scenario 4) The DSL telephone line does not fit into the Router’s Internet port.
The Router does not replace your modem. You still need your DSL modem in order to use the Router. Connect the telephone line to the DSL modem, insert the setup CD into your computer, and then follow the on-screen instructions

No Internet Through the Router


If changing from a dial-up connection, see warning at bottom. Troubleshooting Steps 1. Connect your computer directly to the modem, without the router. If you cannot access the Internet, contact your ISP. 2. Reconnect the router, modem, and computer as they were before Step 1. Can you log on to the router? If not then: 1. Check that all cables attached to the router and computer are secure. 2. Check the Internet LED is lit. If it is not, troubleshoot light status, as explained in the router manual. 3. Check the LEDs for the ports with cables are lit. If not, move the cable to a different port. If there are still no lights, then troubleshoot light status, as explained in the router manual. 4. Check if the LED on the Ethernet adapter is lit. If it is not, then troubleshoot the adapter, do not continue this document. If the adapter is not NETGEAR's, contact the manufacturer. 5. Power off the router. 6. Power the router on again. 7. If you still cannot log on to the router, then do a hard reset on the router, as described here: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thi... 8. If you still cannot log on to the router, Contact NETGEAR: http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files... . 3. Run the router's SmartWizard. This lets the router discover whether you have a static or dynamic IP address, and whether you are using PPPoE to connect to your ISP. (For routers without this utility, go to Step 7.) 4. If a dynamic IP address is discovered, go to Step 8. 5. If PPPoE is discovered, configure your router with the username and password from your ISP. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 8. 6. If a static IP address is discovered, configure your router with this information given by your ISP: the IP address for your router, the address of the ISP's DNS, and the address of the gateway. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 8. 7. If the Smart Wizard does not find an IP address: 1. Power off the router. 2. Power off the modem. 3. Power on the modem. 4. Power on the router. 5. Go back to Step 3. 8. Click Test to access NETGEAR's online test page. If the page displays, then you have Internet access! 9. If the page does not display in a minute, check here: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prd... . 10. Find out if the modem's IP address can be seen by looking at the Router's Status Page, as described in the manual. If not, then reboot the modem, router, and computer, in that order ? waiting for each to completely reboot before rebooting the next. 11. If the modem's IP is seen, then there is a problem with your browser's settings. Your security may be set too high for the Internet service you are trying to use, or your browser may be configured for a dial-up connection. In Internet Explorer you check this using Tools > Internet Options > Security > Default Level. If the slider is set to "High", change it to "Medium". Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections. If the radio buttons in the center are not greyed out, then settings for a dial-up connection are being used. Warning: If you are a dial-up user converting to a cable or DSL connection, some software will not work when both types of configuration are present. Configuring your new connection may stop your dial-up connection from working. You may have to configure to connect one way or the other.
