I had one years ago from D-Link. I don't think they make them anymore but what it is a router with a 9 pin serial connector. You need an external dial-up modem to use it with a 9 pin serial connection. If you have a dedicated line, that works even better. Once you log into your computer, the router will automatically dial up the modem for you. You put your dial up settings into the router and it saves them for you. I was using them in a rural area outside of Tacoma pretty close to Mt. Rainier for a client I do some consulting for before the phone company went to DSL. It worked very well for a D-Link product and it had a firewall on it as well.

You might be able to find one on E-Bay. In fact if I still have mine in the closet, I might sell it this weekend.

I dont have an ethernet port on my pc only dsl dial up port, and my router only has ethernet ports, is there a lead or converter i can use to link my computer to my router?


You can buy a pci ethernet card/ network adapter pci . Installation would be opening your computer and insertig it to an available pci slot. If you have usb ports then you can buy a usb to lan device. Here are the picturesa1679da.jpg132f824.jpg

I just got a notebook laptop. On my desktop, I


if you want to use them both together than you will need to share the internet connection by using ICS - but on dial up this will be very slow that also assumes you have a network adapter in the desktop I would see if you can get a broadband connection and buy a router
I the laptop came with a dialup modem - then you can use the same settings as the desktop to dial up

How d o I dial the Username and Password From this router.


Hello,

If you have a dialup internet connection the router can not directly help you, because the device that you are using for dialup (your PC) needs to first dial up your ISP using the telephone and then once connected it will use PPP to setup the IP Connection, at that point your within the PPP stack it will send your Password and Username. When that is all done you have connectivity. The router assumes that your connection by nature is either DHCP or PPPoE, not PPP or SLIP as with a dial up connection

What you need is a device that has dialup capibilities, and an internal PPP stack to allow for connectivity to the ISP while allowing for a connition to the router. This can be done by connecting one of your PCs (with Internet sharing enabled) to the internet via dialup and using a second ethernet connection to your router, then from the router you can connect your other PCs.

This method involves setting up two different subnets so here is a suggestion:

1) On the PC set the ethernet LAN facing connection to an IP Address of 192.168.10.100, netmask to 255.255.255.0, Gateway to 192.168.10.1 no DNS

2) On the router set the WAN IP Address to 192.168.10.1 and the DNS to the DNS provided by the ISP.

3) On the router facing the LAN (your network) set the IP Address to 192.168.1.1 and thell the router to act like a DHCP server.

This way you will be able to connect your PCs to the router and have it serve as a permanent connection to the PC which will still have to dial out but you can send a periodic ping sequence to keep the Internet connection up. and connfiguer auto-dial if the connection goes down.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Ps3 online


Dial up is NOT recommended. I honestly do not think it would even work. DSL and broadband work great. If you get DSL or broadband you would need your original ethernet cord and hook up the PS3 from your router. If you go wireless then you would need a wireless router.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Need router or modem for ATT DSL 6.0


Hi,
Your laptop has got a modem built in, but it is intended for dial up 56Kbps, not DSL. So they are both right. But if you want to use a DSL internet service you will need to buy either a DSL router or modem. You should not need to buy bothas the router will have the modem built in. Your ISP may have a prefered model and will probably sell you one at a fairly cheap price or you can get one from your local PC world. If you only have the one Laptop at home you can buy either the router or the modem. The modem will probably be cheaper. But for around $60 you can buy a router I prefer wireless. This will allow you around 4 connections and more importantly frees you up from having to be directly and closely connected and allows you to work in various places around the home without trailing cables everywhere. Your ISP will advise you on the settings you require. I advise you to enable all the security options on any wireless devices. I hope this was useful.

Use a wired router for dial-up (NETZERO) connection..


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)

Dial-up link for cisco router 1841


It is possible if the IOS on your router supports the necessary dialing features. You'll need to use WIC-1AM analog modem modules (or similar) in each router. A cheaper alternative would be to use standard desktop modems...the serial ports could be connected to the Aux interfaces on the routers.
Good luck...and I hope this is helpful!!

Belkin router and modems


i would suggest returning the router and/or purchase a modem router, as it does away with all the connection problems and the need to click dial to connect as a modem router is always on and does not require a main pc to be on. It will also probably be cheaper than buying a seperate modem.

It wont connect


if you have reset the router for any reason, you must have the incorrect settings eg PPOA PPOE or you have not entered the correct password and username. It is also possible that your broadband connection to your isp server is down. On the other hand if you have installed this modem/router in place of a dial up modem or a broadband modem, your modem is still trying to connect, which needs to be dissabled as when you use a router you do not have to click connect unless you are in the routers settings as you are always on line, unlike a dial modem, so you should have uninstalled the modem driver. If you have just installed the router you need to open up internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections and choose never dial a connection, unless its all greyed out, in whicj case you need to go back into the router and check the settings.
