05-08-04, 08:38 PM
I have a broadband account which i share on a network throughout my house, but i would also like to be able to let someone dial up with there modem and log into my computer and use my internet access much like the other computers can on the network, i have a modem and phone line available. Is This Possible? and how?

Sorry about the question not making much sense! Okay
I have a dsl connection which gives my computer the internet!
I have also a 56.6kbps modem!
I was wondering if/how i could setup my computer for a friend to use there 56.6kbps modem to connect to my 56.6 kbps modem and once a connection was made be able to access information from the internet since my computer is already connected to the internet through the dsl modem!
I would imagine this is sort of how a normal 56.6kbps dial-up account works!
This would save them paying for a dial-up account as the could just use my account
Thanks i hope that makes more sense

:D beter, not much beter but better
DSL line is digital line (eg parallel to analog phone in the same line)
in the same time you can use internet connection & phone
Dial-up is alnalog & not such good as DSL from efect/costs reasons
one can switch : phone or modem
1. if you need sharing your DSL internet connection to your friend
wall stocket-DSLmodem-router with switch-fastEthernet wires-several PC
pay attention 'fastEthernet' wires are longth limited
or using AccessPoint Wi-Fi (radio) connections (see on propagation)
In such solution only router sould be powered on all the time
2. if you need use your DSL & Dial-up modem in the same time
Actualy same routers have freatures to connect DSL line
and as a backup dial-up line - COM port for connection analog modem
3. both above reason are with router device
solution with alone PC (dsl + dial-up in a PC)is not recomended
from efect/costs reasons
