It's possible to create a small office or home network that shares dial-up Internet access, but you will of course find throughput very limited if everyone is using the network at once.

To create this configuration, you can either combine any wireless AP with a dial-up access router, or purchase a wireless router with built-in analog dial-up (as primary, or as backup to broadband). For example, dial-up router examples include the Netopia R2000 Analog Router and Multi-Tech RouteFinder. Dial-up routers with integrated wireless include the Apple Airport Extreme and ZyXEL ZyWALL 2WE.
