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.

CANT ABLE TO CONNECT DIAL UP CONNECTION


Turn on your computer. Click the Start menu, go to the Control Panel and access "Network and Internet Connections." Click the "Create a New Connection" option in the upper left corner of the window. Click "Next" until you reach a list of options. Select "Connect to the Internet," and click "Next" again. Select "Set Up My Connection Manually," and click "Next." Select "Connect Using a Dial-up Modem," and click "Next." Enter a name for the new connection you are creating (e.g. "Dial Up Connection"), and click "Next." Type in the phone number you will be using to connect to the Internet, and click "Next." This phone number will be provided to you by your ISP. Enter the username and password provided to you by your ISP. This will successfully configure your Internet connection. Plug a phone line into your computer's dial-up modem. You may now use the newly-created connection to connect to the Internet. b> Macintosh Computers Turn on your computer. Access the Apple menu and click "System Preferences." Click "View," and access the "Network" option. Click on the "Show" pop-up menu and find the "Internal Modem" option-or the "Configure" option if you are not running Mac OS X 10.5-and click it. Click the "Configure" menu if you are running a version other than Mac OS X 10.5. If you are running version 10.5, select the "PPP" tab. These options will both have the same result. Enter your information into the appropriate fields in the new window that appears. Your ISP username goes under the "Account" field, and password under the "Password" field. Save your preferences when you are finished. Plug your phone line into the modem jack on your computer. Your computer will now be able to connect to the Internet via dial-up.

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.

Dialup link problem


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

PPP control protocols


Who ever the ISP is that you are dialling cannot agree on the PPP protocols. In other words your ID to that network is wrong. It does not matter what OS you running. Go back to the ISP you must have one before you can connect. Depending on where you are and who that ISP is you will not and cannot connect until these protocols ie; ID and password have been established. If you have all of those and you thinks there is a problem go to them it sounds like your modem is fine.

Hi, assuming you are running WinXP, you might want to try: 1) right click on your wireless networking icon and click repair; or 2) double click on the same icon; click on properties, scroll down to/click TCP/IP to highlight, click on properties - Tick Obtain an IP address automatically if your access point is also acting as DHCP server; or 3) get IP add + others from your Network Admin and entered numbers given; or 4) self-assign IP numbers that are pretty near your Access Point (AP) IP #s, maybe something like 192.168.1.3 where your AP is 192.168.1.1, subnet mask should be the same as your AP (normally 255.255.255.0 but may be different) and your default gateway normally would be the IP Add of your AP (192.168.1.1 or whatever the AP is using) DNS could be obtained from your ISP or tick obtain automatically. Caution here that the IP number you select should not be currently in use in your network. 5) Open IE, go to tools/internet option/connection, remove any dial-up if no longer needed and check never dial a connection (assuming you don’t use a modem and would connect normally via wireless. Go to/Click LAN settings, check auto detect settings, make sure Proxy server is uncheck. 6) Ping any website from your command prompt to see if you get a response If all else fail, pls post your AP hardware (brand/model), OS. It might also be a good idea to check if your AP is connected to an ISP with an active account and that your modem is working ok. Please let me know if this works out ok for you. Cheers.
