Using Airport Base Station
Authored by: sierratarn on Sep 15, '03 11:43:10AM

I do something similar using an airport base station which is setup to answer the phone and provides access to my network connection. With a ComSwitch routing device (allows custom ringing numbers to be routed to different devices) and custom ringing on my phone I have dialup access from on the road. With many cell phone plans including unlimited nights and weekends and having no long-distance charges it works pretty well.

One could argue (correctly) that there is latency introduced by the long distance cell phone call. But at these slow speeds it doesn't matter a great deal.
