You want to use a LAN with a router that uses a dial-up as a backbone internet connection for your LAN.
This is absolutely possible.

If you just want to share the connection that one computer has, and dont want to buy a router that has a built-in modem, try this

If you are running windows, There is a feature called Internet Connection Sharing (ICS.) It will share the dialup across the network.

Just 1 hookup the router and all the pcs to it. 2 Dialup the machine with the modem. 3 Enable ICS on that machine. 4 Youre LAN is online.

In XP, goto the network connections, and while you have 2 active connections in there (the dialup and the LAN port connected to the router), right click the dialup, goto properties. goto advanced tab, and click on enable ICS.
The other computers should be served IP's automatically and NAT'd out to the internet by the computer running ICS.

(The other computers should be automatically setup to the internet like they should be and connected to the dialup riunning on the ICS (host) computer)

SOURCE: Wired router connection

Hi,

To my knowledge, yes. "dial-up internet" connotes standard modem attached to a computer unlike DSL modems (non USB) that are stand alone. Therefore the dial-up internet modem should be connected to a single computer. That PC then would have to enable its Internet Sharing for others in the network to access the Internet. This is accomplished by hooking all the PCs to a single network using a hub/switch. The router can perform this function (hub), however, all the PCs in the network would have to use for their Default Gateway IP address not that of the router but that of the PC with the dial-up internet modem. Having said that, it would then be necessary to use static IP adds in all the PCs. The built-in firewall and DHCP features of the router would not be necessary.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Netzero connection problem?


A modem is a device that allows you to use a voice telephone line to connect your computer to the internet. If you contact NetZero Tech Support, they will send you a CD to run through the setup. The modem connects to the wall with a standard telephone wire. (The ends are known as RJ11)

Wireless internet


Basicly the wireless router needs to be connected into the internet, then you will be able to connect to it. You need to install the card and make sure it works in your device, then connect into the router and it should work fine.

Dial up Modem


Dial up modems have 2 phone line connections side by side in the back of a desktop, one is for the wall, other is for your telephone. Laptops have just one phone line connector. Look closely at the little symbols by the connection holes. If you don't have one, Modems (internal or externally mounted), are on eBay, buy a 56K with drivers on disk for your operating system. A few modems can be installed using Windows default drivers (drivers are software operating programs that tell your computer how to regulate and operate a device).

Dial up?


Hi,

Technically no, not unless the PC where the modem is connected to is used as a Gateway/Share Internet Connection and is connected to the WAN side of the router. However, this arrangement would need a lot of manual configuration and settings on the modem side PC as well as the client PCs.

Alternately, you may be better off connecting the modem PC to a hub rather than a router and set static IP adds on the client PCs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
