i THINK (don't quote me on this) that dialup broadband is a horrible name for accellerated dialup? like what people PC offers? i've never heard of "dialup broadband" and to my knowledge there's not really such a thing....they might have their terminology messed up? perhaps they have DSL and since they plug their DSL modem into the phone jack they think it's dialup?

I finally found out what she meant, she just meant DIALUP! Can I dialup internet connect more than one PC?!?

http://www.ezlan.net/DialUp.html here's a rellatively simple set of instructions

basically you make an internal network, set up ICS on the computer with the modem...and go to town....there are limitations though...if you use the ICS route...then the computer with the modem has to ALWAYS be on...i'm also not sure if you can have two machines connected at once...
