    I have a few PCs round the house with good old fashion analogue modems. I only have one phone line, is it possible to get a device that if one modem is using the line it blocks the others?

    Yes, I know broadband exists but i need to use the analogue modems for secure transactions (I have no idea why) and so if some uses one of the other PCs I don't want a conflict between them.

    Cheers :lease:

    Get a small, analog PABX that supports as many extensions as you have phones and modems. But note that this will work for outgoing calls only since all incoming calls would typically go to one extension only (one that has a phone attached to it).
