Choose 1 PC to be the one to dial into the ISP, and install Internet connection sharing on that PC. (preferably the PC with the newest version of Windows)

Then, use the floppy disk created during the installation of ICS to set up the other PCs asICS clients.

I'm not sure this exists with wireless (It does with wired though) but if you want a hardware solution, then just make sure it has dialup failover with a serial port you can plug a modem into. The detailed specs at the manufacturers site should show this, although an email to tech support of your favorite manufacturer would probably be more efficient.

The PC method is better though. I had an smc router with dialup failover that didn't handle dns requests very well, and it was always dialing out. Luckily it had a power switch to deal with this problem.

Freesco.org or smoothwall.org has a couple of linux pc based solutions that primarily use web based configuration, though they both require an old pc to be dedicated to the task.

Just remembered you said wireless. These linux links won't do wireless.
