everything nominal here...and no boogey-man

I test wireless equipment for a living...there's no big scary Big Brother built into the firmware of the router...the conspirists can move back to the JFK issue or something...

Router working great, sending test data daily. I kind of wish it had been a D-Link .11n router instead of a Netgear, but oh well.

How to hook up a router on dial-up

I'm not sure whether you are serious, but that is indeed possible. There are routers with serial interfaces that can be connected to a dialup or leased line modem and there are even routers with dialup modems built in.

It is even possible (and very cheap) to use an old pc and build your own router (any flavor of linux or unix will do).

The SamKnows generic broadband router would be installed between the dialup router and your inhome network (which could just be a single computer). However I'm not sure if dialup users would be qualified for this test program.

this would actually be a very fun project if I had a land line.

Way back when I got IDSL the company installer told me, when I asked how secure the router was, he said "there is no such thing as a secure router", so the NSA has a back door to that firmware no matter what you think about JFK.

My point being, no moreso than any other router.
