    adsl router to adsl router over telephone line
    Hi friends i'm trying to make some arrangement to make my two adsl routers work over a telephone line
    generally in adsl router you plug in a telephone line set it up and you can use internet
    What i want is one end of telephone line is in modem A and the other end is in modem B and i want to create network over simple telephone line

    It will be something like PC A <--> Modem A<-->Telephone line<-->Modem B<-->PC B

    i don't know how to do it but i know how to make modem work and change it's settings accordingly

    Thanks for your help in advance

    As far as I know you can't "network" over phone lines. You would need to connect both PCs to one modem if you want to create a local network (or one pc to the modem, and one pc to the other pc).

    The only other option is creating a VPN: Virtual private network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Which can use the internet to simulate a local network.
    I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

    router to router
    i'm trying to use it over actual telephone line as we have no charges for local calls i can call my buddy and after some tweaking we can use existing telephone line to create network between two of us

    You would need a router capable of wireless internet or a string Ethernet chords throughout your home. Internet service is provided by AT&T (comcast would have to run cabling through your house). You can also use a LAN network by way of an ethernet hub, in which case an internet connection is not needed.

    my point is to use existing telephone line setup created by telephone company to use to create lan type of envirnment

    Yes, but you need a router connected through the phone from your phone company which will also give you internet.

    yes but that again will not be unlimited as we have fixed usage lines
    plus in ultimate plan you can't get enough bandwidth
