    Pretty cool. Another possibility would be to take an old PC, perhaps a Pentium-75, and use a single-diskette or bootable CD Linux distro to setup a dialup PPP connection with IP NATing. Could probably be done for $0.

    While I didn’t know that having a router natively control a modem was an option; this is hardly something that seems make-worthy to me. It’s just using hardware in a way that it was designed to be used… with some zip-ties to hold things together (oh my).
