I've been searching a lot for an external or internal 56k RJ-11 router for a
relative in order to provide nat for a single pc.  I've been unsucessful.
Any suggstions are welcome.

Why not just get you a standalone modem that dials at 56K that has a RS232
connection and find a router that has the RS232 connection? The computer
via the router would make the modem dial via its Rj45 connection to the
router. That is how a friend who had dial-up did it as I recall.

Thanks for the suggestion. I also wonder now if they make rj-11 to RS232
adapters, are am I dreaming? I'll check. If so, she could keep her winmodem.
Just trying to help an elderly member of my family get nat on a 56K dialup
as cheaply and uncomplicated as possible. If anyone has leads on a RS232
router, I'd welcome any input.

Might I suggest you do the proper searches with Google or Dogpile.com. If
you see something that interest you, then go to the manufacture's website
for the product and look at the product specification sheet and look t
the features. You may also get on the phone with sales people and further
discuss with them what you're looking for in a product.

I also saw routers in some other searches the had both the RJ11 and RS232
built in so it looked to be that you could go either way with the hookup
to a modem some even had built in modem.

I hadn't been to that link, but it seems like the basis for some phone
calls.  I'm usually pretty good at finding what I need quickly. I do "search
and call", but failed on this one. Thanks.

 With a router like the "SMC7004ABR Barricade Cable/DSL" you can
connect an external dial-up modem to it by serial cable and it allows
the option of using the dial-up modem as a secondary means of
connecting (automatically switches if the Cable or DSL connection
fails) OR as the primary (only) connection.
 Of course you'd need to buy an external serial cable modem and a
networking card if you didn't already have them.  I've seen the cards
offered for as little as $5 after rebates, external serial V.92/V.44
modems in the $20-$30 range and the router in the $60-$80 range.  With
a little careful shopping you could probably put it together for
around $100.

 Best Data has a 56K Dual PC Modem with Built-in Router (#56NET) that
might be worth looking into.  It has everything for connecting two
computers to the Internet except the networking cards.  While it lists
at US$99, it's fairly easy to find in the US$60 range.
