shareing a dial-up wireless connection?

By millhouselives ·
I am setting up a home network with four computers. Is there a way to share the dial-up connection on all computers at home using wireless technology? My computer has a 56K US Robotics modem that I use for my dialup connection. ( I live in a rural area and have no other options for Internet connection)I would like to be able to share the Internet connection that is on my computer with the other computers in the house (2desktops,1 laptop)Is there a way to do this wireless so that I can move around the house with my laptop and access the Internet?
thank you for any help or suggestions. I know I need a router and wireless nic cards, but do I need anything special because it is a dial-up connection vs. a cable modem or dsl connection coming into the house. thank you

If you're using windows98 or newer across the board you should be fine. Setup your regular internet connection on one computer, make sure it works properly, then setup ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on the computer with the phone line and then setup your wireless LAN to the other systems. You should be able to connect the remote machines to the ICS share and use it to dial out and pass the internet through your LAN. No extra routers or anything else is required.
