My parents live in a rural area with only analog phone lines. There’s no cell service, nor cable service. The hills also limit access to satellite service. They’re still using Snow Leopard and related software. The only internet service available is analog dial-up. That has been adequate until recently. Evolving protocols, especially around browsers and web pages is becoming severely limiting. For example, many web pages fail to display because there’s no common secure protocol available in their browser.
In an effort to update to modern software, modern hardware is required. In this case, the modern system will need to support a dial-up modems. In my search, I’ve failed to find any viable modem solution for a modern system.
Does anyone know of a dial-up modem and driver software that would work for a modern Mac, preferably something like a recent or current MacBook Air?
(Or, is this a fool’s errand?)
