Hi, I would like to connect my PC via modem through the internet possibly using a Majikjak or Skype type of VOIP to another modem which is monitoring a machine. The program which I use is an old DOS program on both ends and works well over the telephone line at 9600 baud. Is this possible or do I look at different technology?

Very doubtful.

For any VOIP technology broadband is a minimum. It ain't gonna happen over dial-up.

You can put a single computer, say the xbox, on the USB port on the modem. and your router on the the ethernet input. Because the modem has only one MAC address.That will give you 2 full 3megabit pipes ( Im guessing the 3 billion means 3 megabit) The one on the USB wont be behind the firewall. you will need to protect it. Otherwise I would use a bridge instead of a routed type connection
