finding a smart switch
Posted on 2004-11-18
Not sure if this is possible or not but if what I am trying to find (hardware) is not available, I need some alternative.
Here is what I am trying to do. I have a router in my remote location. I am going to connect a modem to that router so that I can dial from my office and get to that router. In my remote location , I have only one phone line and there is a phone .
I am looking for somekind of a smart switch that can switch between that phone and modem. I donot want anyone to switch for me or in other words , I donot want a manual switch there. Is it possible..
My office location <laptop > <-----phone line -----> <----- some kind of smart switch ------------------>
Phone(1) Modem (1)
So from the above diagram as you can see, I should be able to use a telephone from my office and call the phone (1) in my remote location or I should use my laptop from my office and dial to the modem (1).
If there is no such hardware available , is there an alternative for the above situation...
