Are there any inexpensive wireless routers (purchased preferably in UK) that share directly a dial up connection? I do not want an intermediate pc, just to plug the phone line on the router and be able go on-line with any wireless device.

You could try with a router that has a serial ports and an external modem, but in devices like the WiFlyer WDB20B were made for that specific purpose.

Seems discontinued, any other router with a serial port and external modem? – iKarampa Feb 4 '11 at 9:42

There's an Apple Airport Extreme basestation model which has an integrated modem.Works great with PCs too, though it's easier to do the initial configuration with a mac. It can even do dial-on-demand if you're into that sort of thing. A quick search of for 'Apple A1034' yields a couple results for around £20 shipped.
