Internet sharing/SMC broadband router/dialup

LAST EDITED ON Nov-01-01 AT 03:00 PM (GMT)

Here's what i've got:

4 computers on an ethernet network using TCP/IP
all plugged into a hub.
IPs are all 192.168.123.XXX (I'll change this to better numbers after I get this problem solved)
all subnets =
SMC Barricade (firmware 1.92e) plugged into hub and connected to a 56K Sportster external modem.
Can ping everything.
Use AOL (sorry) as ISP.

Barricade settings are:
Primary setup:
LAN IP Address =
WAN Type = Dial Up Network
Dial-up telephone = local phone number for AOL
dial-up account = my AOL screen name
dial-up password = blank
Primary DNS
Secondary DNS
Maximum Idle time 300 seconds Auto-reconnect = not checked
Baud Rate = 57600 bps Disable auto-dial = not checked

Virtual Server settings are all "empty"

Miscellaneous Items:
IP Address of DMZ host = 192.168.123.blank Enable = not checked
Remote administrator host =
Administrator Time out = 600 seconds Enable = not checked
Discard Ping from WAN side = not checked
Non-standard FTP port = 0 enable = not checked

DHCP Server
DHCP Server = Enable
IP pool starting address = 100
IP pool ending address = 199
Domain name = blank

System Status:
IP Address
WAN Status = Sidenote Dial-up IP

Subnet mask
WAN Status =
sidenote = blank

WAN Status =
sidenote = unreachable

Domain Name Server
WAN Status =
sidenote = blank

Connection Time
WAN Status = -
sidenote = blank

Dial-up Modem
Peripheral Status = dial-up fail
sidenote = Dial-up (button)

Peripheral Status = not ready
sidenote = blank

The Problem (finally)
I press the Dial-up button (on Status screen)
Modem dial tone
Modem dials
Hear handshake
Hear connection
Modem disconnects

This computer has an internal modem which connects and "holds" fine on the same phone line.

Can you help?

Very good info! According to http://www.smc.com/index.cfm?action=support_tools_show_FAQ¬e_id=200 an AOL dial-up will not work with a Barricade Router because AOLís authentication method is proprietary and does not follow the standard PPP mode. Larry

Guess I'm barking up a dead horse

Just like AOL.

I was hoping to get this working for the day that they provide DSL or Cable Internet in my neighborhood. I'll just have to wait...and wait...and wait...

Or get rid of AOL. They are bit expensive anyway. Larry

Larry, I'd love to get rid of AOL. There are just not a lot of choices where I live (new development, in the country, spread out). I had a bunch of the different "Free" ISPs, but they kept going out of business. They were pretty annoying anyway. Cable says they're working on it.
