    Is there a dial up wireless router?

    There's a specific I have that requires a wireless router that I can connect to dial up access. I think several years ago I saw such a router, it had inputs for broadband but also a built in dialer. I am interested only in the dial up part since the person I need it for can only get (and afford) dial up. Dial up is fine for her specific needs so I'm not interested in any sort of broadband connection.

    Any pointers would be appreciated.

    Will this one do what you need?

    It uses Bluetooth rather than Wifi, but that shouldn't be an issue if you add a Bluetooth dongle to the machine.

    This article brings up a good suggestion and adds to my question. Does anyone know of a wireless router with an RS232 port so that I could add an external dialup modem?


    There was one modem that I found but with all it's extras, bells and whistles, it was out of my price range. Thanks for any more suggestions.

    Your suggestion made me think, " I don't need the WiFi part if I can get an external modem with Bluetooth connectivity!" and I found one at Tiger direct in the right price range. Thanks much for the suggestion.
