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.
