Internet connection sharing for PCs in different locations (dial up)

  1. Is this at all possible. Can I share a dial up connection with 2 computers.
    I am currently using my parent's ISP but only can connect one at a time. The computers are located in different cities.

    Possible?

    It depends on your isp. I've heard some isps let this happen, while others only let one computer be on at a time.

    You can do it. I think you just need a dial up router.

    It would be very expensive to link the two computers to the router since they are in different cities..

    sometimes you can do this by using a diff. dialup phone number
    if you are not already doing this
    I did this with a clients system isp had bunch of diff numbers to use
