splitting a dial up connection
Does anyone know of a way to split a dial up connection to be shared by more than one PC. Like the way a router will split a cable modem - sort of the same way. Anyone?

If you are looking to do it with hardware instead of software, do a search for "webramp" on ebay. They work well

I think you can do it with Internet Connection Sharing in windows XP.

Some routers witn dial-up backup will do this also. Although I wouldn't want to think about what it would be like sharing a dial-up connection. Why would you ever do such a thing. lol

one reason is because you dont have access to anything else bar Dial up. (im in that boat). i use a proxy server/cache server to share my dial up internet. normally there is only 1 computer using the net at one time and the cache server helps. so the speed is not that much slower than a single dial up connection.
It also means that i dont have to be on 1 machine to use the net and i can update things on my laptop that require internet connection.

if 2 people are just surfing...and not multi-tasking too much...many times it is fine because one is browsing while the other is loading the link...easiest way i can think of is to use ICS as detrius statedHey who turned sigs on?
