Default Ok, Can I Get Some Advice?

i need to get a router for my sister in law. here is the catch, she only has a dial up connection! she is getting a laptop and would like to use it on the router wireless. now are there any wireless routers available in the uk that will work on dial up? if so could you possibly recomend one to me.

wireless with dial up sounds insane lol but ya it should work i see no reason y it wouldnt, any router from linksys would be good and yes u should be able to network them although u might have to setup the network everytime u start up the internet...

Ok, so i have done a lot of investigating on this.
the best option i have is, to go bluetooth.
i could get a bluetooth card for the laptop, and buy a bluetooth wireless modem.

would that be a viable option in your oppinions.
