I would bother trying to share a 56k connection as it would be too slow.

I am unsure of what you mean when you say a "wireless networker".

Try eBuyer.com for your hardware.

I guess you mean a wireless router, and yes you should be able to I think I can with mine on Broadband.

Well if you don't know what you mean then how are we supposed to know ? A description would be helpful.

I have to say I have never seen a wireless router for a dial up connection and as I've said trying to share 56k would be so slow, but it is your decision.

As I have said eBuyer has lots of cheap network cards click here both in PCI and USB models (as well as PCMCIA for laptops).

If you did find a suitable router then you could have simultaneous Internet access on both machines.

having a slow connection isn't a problem becouse it will be only for a little while.cos ill be getting tiscali broadband.the reason i wanted to share a dial-up connection is becouse everyone in the house is all queing(didnt know how to spell que)to connect to the internet.oh well thanx guys.more advice,be gratefull.
