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.

Lynksys 54g no dial tone


Solid power light indicates that the router is still good. You need to reconfigure the router since you had a new modem.

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,

Yes, you've got a "broadband" router... won't help much with dial up..

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.

a router shouldnt need to dial for a connection, go to open your internet browser and go to tools, then internet options, then click connections tab and select never dial a connection so as to stop internet explorer looking for a modem connection

Ah, you can no longer use the modem or the Blitzz screen to connect to your Internet connection. You'll need to patch another Ethernet cord from the router to your Ethernet port on your computer and it should automatically connect. If you still get prompted to dial, open up Internet Explorer and ignore any prompts to dial and then click Tools, then Internet Options, then click the Connections tab at the top, then click the selection to Never Dial a Connection. Confirm your choice by clicking OK and then try browsing the Internet like usual.
