Dial-up is what you wish you had installed on your BartPE USB-stick,

when your Comcast high-speed-internet isn't working, and you need

troubleshooting info from microsoft.com...

(Unless, you already got the info on your BartPE-stick.)

haha, I remember being limited to 20mb downloads because it took 2 hours to download that much and in those days they cut you off every 2 hours.

Yes I can remember those days well, I remember the thrill when I had Two paralleled 64kb ISDN lines fitted, (at work), and could distribute a whole 128kb around the office.

Moved office in 2000 and fitted a 2Mb ADSL but retained the ISDN as a backup for the "New Tech"
