    I'm looking for a router that has a phone-line connection (or at least a
    serial port) and an Ethernet port that allows you to "dial in" to your home
    Ethernet network -- similar to the old "dial routers" (that would let you use
    a dial-up ISP as a backup in case your DSL/cable modem died) in reverse. I've
    found a couple meant for industrial automation (Rockwell Automation has one --
    http://www.rockwellautomation.com/services/remote/modems/ethernet/ - as does
    SixNet --
    http://www.sixnetstore.com/Merchant...roduct_Code=ET-5MS-MDM-1&Category_Code=Modems) ,
    but they're all upwards of $1,000 and I was hoping to find something cheaper.
    Anyone know of something like this?

    Thanks,
    ---Joel Koltner

    PS You could also load "Freesco" onto an old 486 PC, w/modem NICs, and
    use THAT as your router.
