USB Dial-up Analog Modem

Mon Oct 17, 2011 5:52 pm

Does Mikrotik support USB Dialup Analog modems? I see how to use a serial modem, but I'm talking specifically about USB connected modems (NOT 3G and NOT DB9 SERIAL).

I realize that Mikrotik would use a driver to then access the modems like a serial device, but I am unable to find any type of compatibility list anywhere for these.

Does anyone have experience with working USB modems or know of an official answer?

Thank you.

In case anyone else has this need in the future:

I contacted mikrotik support and they said it could not be done, no USB modems are supported.

So, I tried it myself with a USB modem and it works GREAT! Absolutely no problems found yet.

I don't know why they would say it isn't possible when it does in fact work, and is such a great feature.

Hi:
Can you provide a bit more detail on your hardware config and OS?

I'm interested in something like this using a very small form factor and inexpensive box with two eth ports. Preferably, I'd like to have the modem built-in.
Thanks.

There aren't any routerboards with a built-in modem.

I've never tried dialing IN to the Mikrotik. I use mine to dial OUT of the Mikrotik.
