Okay, my bro-in-law is pretty much threatening to run a phone line from our house back to his trailer to take advantage of my Netzero connection...yeah, I have dial-up. I can only get satellite internet where I live, and I can't afford it yet (dang equipment fees...)

So my question is, to avoid him having a free-for-all with our phone line, disabling my own internet connection and tying up the phone line 24/7 like his inconsiderate self would, is there any way that I can:

1)Connect to the internet through my internal dial-up modem
2)Send the dial-up connection through my ethernet port, connecting that to the "Internet" port on my wireless router
3)Allow him to connect to this connection using his USB wireless adapter connected to the computer out in his trailer.

To answer your general question which is: Can you share your dial up connection with another PC? Yes you can.

This page will walk you through how to set it up. I would imagine you would make the wireless connection just like you normally would. I would recommend using the first router config. That way your brother can't get into your PC.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
