If you have an old broken dial-up modem just sitting around and taking up space, then why not turn it into a USB hub? In this Instructable I will show you how to do it.

Step 1: Materials and Tools needed:

1. A Phone cord with 4 wires
2. An old Dial-Up modem
3. Isolation tape
4. USB extender with female end
5. USB memory stick
6. A phone jack
7. All your basic tools eg. a screw drier 
8. Tubing / Shrink tubing
9. RJ-45 cord (with 4 wires inside)
10. Time

This is a very well done instructable but it has one pretty glaring flaw--it is not a USB&nbsp;hub. A&nbsp;USB&nbsp;hub is a device that you connect to a single USB&nbsp;port and it forks it into 2 or more ports. I&nbsp;propose renaming this very detailed post to something like &quot;hide a USB&nbsp;flash drive in a dial-up modem&quot;&nbsp;or similar. <br /> <br /> Top notch work otherwise!<br />
Thanks! Good idea, I will rename it soon.<br />
USB extender ? <br /> USB Dock?<br /> <br /> Cool use for Old Tech.<br /> Just a naming issue.<br />
