As the Internet becomes more of a must have for businesses, we show clients how to leverage routers and ISDN connections on their network to share the internet. Previously, companies would employ a dedicated internet line on a dedicated computer or multiple lines with modems in all the computers. ISDN allowed the fax signal to be isolated using a filter and the remaining bandwidth could be used for Internet.
