    Is there an easy way for a router like the WRT54GL to share a dialup connection? I'm suspecting that I'll have to set up a dedicated PC with a modem in order to actually establish the connection and provide the WAN uplink, but I'm hoping that there are other solutions (maybe a network appliance that includes a modem?)

    I did similar thing to share my GPRS
    simply disable the DHCP (or install windows RIP listener, then set the router to router mode), then connect the host through ANY of LAN (NOT WAN) port

    The above device looks like a viable option, the other thing that came to mind is along the lines of mingkee. You could also install a second nic in the computer, turn on internet connection sharing and either connect to a switch or the router, if you are the paranoid type. Lock down the machine, connect the second nic to the wan side of the router and let the router filter the connection for the clients on the inside. However its a lot of work for a dialup connection. Good luck and let us know what you end up doing and how it works.
