Hello. I have a work laptop as I’m generally based at clients. In order to check email I have a plain old connection cable to dial-up to the company’s ISP. The problem: it only works with analogue phone lines. Since many of my clients have digital phone systems, I can’t dial up.
I understand that you can get converters, or some other kind of other device that can get round this. Questions: what are these devices properly called (a Google search brought a lot of irrelevant hits, and my dial-up isn’t that reliable tonight), how much do they generally cost, how bulky are they, how reliable are they (i.e. do they work with pretty much any digital system?) and does anyone know a reputable brand or source for them in the UK?
