-Do you remember the early days of Internet and dial-up connectivity?​ We used to be connected to the Internet using a modem connected to a telephone network, and the only thing computers needed was a serial port for communication,​ which virtually every computer had. Nowadays every computer sold has some sort of Wi-fi or Ethernet connectivity,​ but our vintage computers are left to rot offline! I plan to change that. Nowadays, there are many ways you can get a PC online, including getting a 3com 3C503 or 3C509 network adapter, but sometimes an old PC just doesn'​t have expansion for a network card expansion, or maybe you're not even trying to connect with a PC. Well, whatever piece of technological equipment it may be, as long as it has at least one serial port, a keyboard and a display, you're in luck! Get to experience connecting to the Internet just like in the good old days.+Do you remember the early days of Internet and dial-up connectivity?​ We used to be connected to the Internet using a modem connected to a telephone network, and the only thing computers needed was a serial port for communication,​ which virtually every computer had.

-This guide is useful for anyone who would like to do PPP networking experimentation or have a computer connect to the Internet without a network card. It could also be useful for anyone who would like to experiment with a Virtual ​Modem. Since pretty much every IBM compatible computer has a RS-232 serial port, technically you could connect any computer to the Internet, or any other network, as long as there is a way to use dial-up PPP. Windows 3.0, 3.1 and 3.11 will need an extra program called Trumpet Winsock, but Windows 95 and later operating systems have built-in Dial-up networking.+This guide is useful for anyone who would like to do PPP networking experimentation or have a computer connect to the Internet without a network card. It could also be useful for anyone who would like to experiment with a Simulated ​Modem. Since pretty much every IBM compatible computer has a RS-232 serial port, technically you could connect any computer to the Internet, or any other network, as long as there is a way to use dial-up PPP. Windows 3.0, 3.1 and 3.11 will need an extra program called Trumpet Winsock, but Windows 95 and later operating systems have built-in Dial-up networking. I will be adding Microsoft TCP/IP-32 for Windows 3.1 support soon.
