Question about Microsoft Broadband Networking MN-100 Wired Base Station (M51-00001) Router
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.

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)
