I am looking for a product that is a switch and dial-up modem all in one, a 56k modem/router/switch if you may.  I have searched the web and only found reference to the netgear rm356 product but I can't seem to find it anywhere in Australia.  Is there another current product on the market similiar to the RM356, I have found an ADSL router/switch with backup dial option but that seems to cost to much.  

Thanks

There use to be a 56k modem/router that you could connect two 56k lines to and it would connect to two dial-ups at once.  This product was around in 1998 before broadband became popular in every home so I don't know if they are still manufactured.  Sorry I don't remember the name or the brand but here are a few devices that are similar.

One of these may be what I was thinking about:

Otherwise have you taken a look at this product by 3COM:

Is your goal here to split a dial-up connection between more than one user? Or are you looking for a router that wall fall back to dial-up when the broadband connection fails?

My goal here is to share a dialup connetion between users.  I am finding that when I use internet connection sharing, the user always turns off there machine that the modem is connected to, so we keep getting complaints that the internet isn't working.  The area that I need it for isn't able to get ADSL, so we have to go to dialup.

Something like this then?

You won't find many products that do this...there is no market for it. Dial up is already painfully slow...to split that connection among two or more users makes it unbearable. But the above product promises to do it.

I thought about buying one of these for my parents once.  I think its what your looking for.  An  Actiontec dual PC modem.  Two PCs connected to two ethernet ports, sharing one 56k dialup.  About $50 on the web.
