Wireless Dial-Up Modem
What are the tips for setting up a wireless network with a dial-up modem?
Wireless network is a type of networking where the different components of the network are connected without a cable or wire. Commonly it is used for short distanced networking. The different nodes of the network are connected through radio signals instead of a wire or cable. Different types of wireless networking are there like wireless PAN, wireless LAN, wireless MAN, wireless WAN, etc. The wireless networking can be done in different ways. Mainly it is done with the help of a centralized wireless access points (WAP). The wireless LAN is also known as Wi-Fi. The data to be transmitted is encoded into radio frequency signals and are sent through the wireless router. The nodes equipped with wireless adapter can accept those signals and they will decode those radio signals into the original data form. Thus, the wireless transmission is taking place.

- Initial Steps
- Setting the Wireless Connection
- Completing the Process
The initial things that we need to set up for a wireless network are a desktop (for using as server) with a dial-up modem, phone line and a wireless router. The phone line should be connected to the modem on the computer. Using the standard cables, connect the desktop to the router. For this, insert one end of the wire into the computer and other end to an empty port on the back of the wireless router.
Setting the Wireless Connection
Now install the software which is given by the Internet service provider on the system and configure it. If the ISP had not given any of such software, then we can do it manually. For that first click the ”˜Start”™ menu on the task bar. Then select the ”˜Control Panel”™. Now double click on the ”˜Network Connections”™ and select the ”˜Create the new connections”™. Now we can configure the host computer for sharing the Internet connection.
First click on the ”˜Start”™ and then click on ”˜Control Panel”™ and select ”˜Network Connections”™. Then right click on the dial-up connection and select ”˜Properties”™. Then the settings window will be opened. Then click the ”˜Advanced”™ tab. Now make a check next to the box ”˜Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection”™. Now click on ”˜Ok”™ and save the settings. Now we can switch on the other nodes and selecting the ”˜Network Setup Wizard”™ we will get access to the wireless Internet connection.
