Comment on Apple's Airport Extreme base station

In this Q&A, you state: "I haven't yet seen an 802.11g wireless router with dial-up in a single box (scenario #2), probably because there is not as much demand for dial-up anymore." Actually, Apple's Airport Extreme base station is just such a device, and I believe, since it's just a standard 802.11g router, that it should work with non-Macs.
Joshua, thanks for pointing this out. Although the Airport Extreme Base Station Broadband Edition does not have an integrated v.90 modem, but the Base Station Modem+Broadband Edition certainly does. As recommended in my original tip, readers should keep their eyes on vendors that sell wireless routers to the residential market for new 802.11g+v.90 products. As product lines get upgraded from 802.11b to 802.11g, there will probably be a few analog modem routers like this.
