I am looking for a router w/ a dialup backup.  I do not need a built in switch or wireless.  I am looking for $50-$150 range.  So far I have found:

D-Link has said that they no longer have any products that have dial up backup
Linksys has not returned my emails
Netgear has 8-port Cable/DSL ProSafe Firewall with Dial Back-up (FR328S) which is a bit more than I need
SMC has the Barricade™ 4-Port 10/100Mbps Broadband Router (SMC7004ABR) - I haven't dealt with SMC much - is this a good choice?

Does anyone have any good/better suggestions?
thanks,
Michael

Take a look at the Draytek routers here:

http://www.draytek.com/english/product/vigor2200series_router.php the Vigor 2200X and the 2200 have ISDN fallback option.

Also take a look at the 2600Gi for wireless and ISDN fallback => http://www.draytek.com/english/product/adsl_router_voip_g.php
