Is anyone in here have their own ISP setup?

I have always wondered about this. It is only a question. I know I can't be my own

There is a way to let 56kers connect through you if you have broadband, theres some software that does. I havent got a clue how it works or what its called though.

If only you personally need it, its very easy to get a single phone line, modem, and an old server going. Then you can dial into your network at home and use a Cable or DSL modem.

JJB6486,
I can have my own ISP just for myself? I do have those pieces of hardware now. I think I misunderstood you.

Zedric, What can we/I use, if I were to be that incredibly filthy rich?

I really wouldn't mind trying it out, That would be wild.

well if you want to be your own isp for it to be cheaper, A permenant 1Mbit connection to the internet(with a 1:1 contention ratio) would set you back $1500AUD/hour wholesale from Telstra in Australia

if you want to be your own ISP so you can use your broadband on dial-up, it's easy, it can be setup in XP Pro's Network Connections(even in windows 98!!) to accept incoming calls from your attached modem, although you wont be able to send/recieve calls while your dialed into yourself, but im not completely sure on how to do it though :)

I just remembered, What you could also do to be your own ISP is be part of a franchise, some ISPs do that :) :p

Woul'dnt it be easier to just have a t1 connection and do it that way?? with speakeasy you can have one for 500.00 a month .. Then if you get a couple of people on it you can somewhat supplement it ..
