Internet Sharing Help . . .

Hi all,

I'm on my holidays in Canada at the moment, and my cousin has moved house, but where they've moved to only dial up is available at the moment.

So basically they have a D-Link 'DI-604' Broadband Router and 3 computers, is it possible to link all these through the router and share the dial internet connection on the main computer.

I've had a muck around and sharing files is no problem, but I can't sort out the internet side of things.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,:smashin:

They could have shared a broadband internet connection using the router very easily - but as far as I know it doesn't have an inbuilt standard modem for connection to dial-up. I'm not 100% sure but they could possibly use Internet Connection Sharing for a dial-up connection - but they would get very poor performance with such low bandwidth.
