hi
i used to own a verizion modem but i couldn't afford it. so they cancelled my service. i used to use a belkin router with the verizion modem to get wifi conections to my sons gaming consoles. now im using netzero dial up internet as my source of internet. but it more of a software then a actual physical internet connection. is there a way to use my router without my modem
Note: my computer does not have a ethernet port

No, you need a Modem of some sort and as you are using dial-up, it has to be a 56k analogue modem. Sounds like you are using an internal Modem.

Routers with a built in Modem are digital so that wont work.

well, do analogue modems have ethernet capabailtity? and are they external because right no netzero is using my internal modem. but verizion had its own modem.

No, analogue modems connect to an RS232 serial port port, either internally or externally or occasionally, a USB port.

so how will i be able to connect my router to the modem?
the only reason i need a external modem is because my computer dosent have a ethernet port. so i need a modem to recieve connections from my phone line to the router which will then send off a wifi signal to my sons gaming consoles

You cannot. It as simple as that. Your only solution is to install internet connection sharing and connect the router to the computer. For that you will need an Ethernet card in the computer.

A direct modem to router connection is not possible.

Is it external? So I would be able to plug in my ethernet cable into the card? So I will still need the analog modem?

blazegreg get yourself an external analog modem which you will move pc to pc as needed for dialup.

To share dialup over a network is nonsense. Most analog lines only provide 28k [even though the max is 56k you don't get that anymore]. You would waste lifespan waiting for a web page to load if it could load considering flash and other overhead

No the Ethernet card is internal. You run an Ethernet cable from that to Router, However, set-up is going to be complicated and unless ou understand about IP addresses you and how they interrelate then you are going to struggle

But as wander says, sharing an 56k Internet connection, especially over a wireless link is going to be very, very slow.
