shariing dialup connection in a wireless network.

By service ·
Despite the fact I've explained that even if we can get it work it will be abysmally slow, I have a client who is insistent about sharing their dialup internet connection.

Does anyone out there have a definitive answer about whether dial-up internet connections can be shared in a windows xp (home) wireless network (11.g)?.

I have found various answers to this question (including MSoft article Q306126) ranging from use the internet connection wizard... to it won't work anyway, don't bother trying ...to it will work with various pieces of extra hardware (access points, specialized dialup enabled routers, et al.)
Anyone out there with specifics?

For interest sake the network is up and running on a Belkin F5D7230-4 wireless router (Two systems are XP-HOME (SP2). The third is XP-PRO (SP2). They all talk to each other nicely and share files and printers.

Thanks for the help.

Stan
