    You know how you can get a DSL modem/router/wireless basestation
    allowing you to connect with a wireless laptop?

    Do the same products exist that will connect to a dial-up account?

    Cheers,
    Chris

  2. Yes. It's called a desktop PC with wireless networking.

    At a guess Id say no, dial up modem + pc + wireless access point
    is the way for you

  4. Apple's standard AirPort base station includes a V.90 modem. It can be
    used to provide dial-up Internet access for the network, or to dial in
    to the network from a remote location.

    Is it compatible with PCs (running windows or linux)?

  6. The setup software requires Mac OS X or Windows 2000/XP, but since it
    uses standard 802.11g networking once it's set up it should work with
    anything.
