Picture of Turn your old Dial-Up modem into a USB Hider
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:

Picture of 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 hub. A USB hub is a device that you connect to a single USB port and it forks it into 2 or more ports. I propose renaming this very detailed post to something like "hide a USB flash drive in a dial-up modem" or similar.

Top notch work otherwise!

Thanks! Good idea, I will rename it soon.
USB extender ?
USB Dock?

Cool use for Old Tech.
Just a naming issue.
